Shortcuts for turning on/off Strong’s Numbers in PocketBible Bibles

Posted on: July 5th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel 3 Comments

Do you own a PocketBible Bible that features Strong’s Numbers? The possibilities include:

While you probably chose these Bibles because of the Strong’s numbers and links they provide to included and related dictionaries, it is sometimes nice to turn them off! Especially when you are simply reading the Bible text. Here’s the quickest way to do that in each version of PocketBible:

  1. Windows PC – Use the keys CTRL + U. This keyboard combination quickly toggles the Strong’s numbers on and off. You can also go to the menu and choose View and click the option on and off there. The toggle will work for viewing the text in a Bible window or in “hover” mode when you are hovering over a verse link.
  2. iPad – tap on the Settings icon (looks like a gear) on the toolbar and tap on the menu item “Strong’s Numbers.” You can also find the option via the pop-up menu when you tap and hold on a book and the menu button on the toolbar (Menu | Settings).
  3. iPhone/iPod touch – tap and hold any place in an open book to get a pop-up menu. Choose Menu and tap on “Strong’s Numbers” to turn the numbers on and off. The menu button on the toolbar (Menu | Settings) will also provide this option.
  4. Android OS – choose the menu button and then Display Settings. There is a check box option for hiding Strong’s numbers. Check to hide; uncheck to show.
  5. Windows Phone – tap on the three dots to get the menu and then hide Strong’s numbers to hide or show Strong’s numbers to show.
  6. Windows Mobile – tap View, Options, and Show Strong’s Numbers.
  7. Palm OS – tap Options, and Strong’s Numbers.

    I agree about turning them off. I certainly like having them there when I want them, but it’s hard to read with them on.

    Hi – how do I turn them off on ipocketbible please? I have lost the toolbar

    • Paul, to access your toolbar in ipocketbible.com, you just click the right or left edge of your screen and the toolbar will appear. There is not an option to toggle the numbers in ipocketbible.com.
