    I like this. It seems to always have a good map and information for wherever I am studying. I don’t guess there is any way to copy or export a map into another program so that I could have it active in the background while I have my Bible and commentary in active foreground split screen(Olive tree app). It would be a little more convenient. Not a real issue tho.

    Again, I really like this atlas.

    Looks like you need to approve comments before they are posted. I hate spam and links to commercial web sites.
    Note: I have been enjoying all of the atlases

    Just installed ESV Atlas and am wondering if it synchs to Main Window or is there an index, table of contents or other method of getting an overall view of what is inside the app. So far it scrolls and read like a book. I’be no ability to jump around in it to find specific items.

    Are the indices included with links to the book content?
