When you mouse over a heading (denoted by the different sized and different font type orange text); a transparent link icon will appear (see video animation) when that icon is clicked a "copied link!" will appear and then fade away quickly. Clicking upon the heading added the URL to that specific heading into your clipboard. You may now paste that into a document, messaging app, browser etc to bookmark or share with others so they too can find that specific passage/chapter (this is helpful for so-called "rules-lawyers").

Known Issues/Limitations

How do I get a print view?

There doesn't appear to be an easy print view for the chosen book.
Yeah, that's because that's called a BOOK, and you... own the book you're pulling information from, right?? If you do not, please purchase the book and support its creator(s).

Best Practices

Use the Book icon.png View Entire Book feature to load the whole book and then use the browser's Ctrl + F (Find) to overcome Omnisearch's limitations around searching for specific content in the description.
