When Strongs numbers are enabled in the KJV, in the old testament the numbers are shown below the English words, which is a nice way of doing it. But in the new testament, as well as showing the strongs numbers below the English words, the greek words are shown in between the strongs numbers, so the English words are really spaced out. This greatly reduces readability.
Is the display of the Greek words intentional? If so, could they be below the strongs numbers instead of in between them?
If it is not intentional, do you know if it is an issue with the module, or with sword? The Greek words are also displayed in some other frontends, although they are replaced by "NaN" in bibledesktop.

    Is the display of the Greek words intentional?

    I'm guessing it is, because if I enable transliteration the transliteration is shown here instead. Again, it would be better shown under the strongs number.

  • you have lemmas enabled as well as strongs. turn off lemmatization in the context menu.

    There is no option for that in the context menu.

    There is an option for lemmas in the parallel view, but it doesn't have any effect there.

     
  • how old is the version of xiphos that you're running?

    That's nice that you have the option, but I don't...

    Is it a module bug then?

     
  • your module is probably just out of date. note History elements.

    $ grep GlobalOptionFilter ~/.sword/mods.d/kjv.conf
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISLemma
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISStrongs
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISMorph
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISFootnotes
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISHeadings
    GlobalOptionFilter=OSISRedLetterWords
    History_2.6.1=Added GlobalOptionFilter for OSISLemma
    History_1.1=Fixed .conf file GlobalOptionFilters

    EDIT-yes, as you say - terribly sorry for bothering you-EDIT
    Ah... sorry, it is fixed with KJV 2.6.1
    I neglected to click the "refresh" button, so I thought I was still up to date with 2.6. Should have looked into it when I first noticed the issue after updating to 2.6 actually.

    I do still wonder if the lemmas should be displayed above or beneath the strongs numbers instead of between them...
