The horizontal black line near the bottom of the text indicates the end of a panel in a Torah scroll.

Note: There are many customs regarding where lines and panels end in Torah scrolls. The scroll you read from might not exactly match what TropeTrainer Mobile app shows.

The top of the Display Reading view...

...lists the name of the opened reading, and, in parentheses, the book, chapter and verse of the currently selected word. The second line shows the section of the text where the currently selected word appears in readings with sections such as Torah aliyahs and Megillah chapters. To jump to a section, tap its name at the top of the view.

Readings can be displayed with just Hebrew letters with vowels and tropes (Chumash mode), as shown above, or can be displayed with hand-written-style STaM letters as you see it in a Torah scroll (STaM mode)...

...or in two columns displaying both types of letters (Tikkun mode):

Readings can also be displayed with English translation:

Some trope teachers use a system of color coding to highlight phrases in the Hebrew text. Color coding can be enabled for any of the Hebrew display modes:

In this color coding system, the four most common trope combinations are highlighted with color backgrounds. Phrases ending in zakef-katan are coded in yellow, phrases ending in etnachta, magenta, phrases ending in sof-pasuk are light blue, and phrases that end an aliyah are color-coded in dark blue. In addition, the phrases end any of the five books of Torah are coded in grey. Highlighted words are shown with a grey cursor. When the grey highlighting cursor is on a word that has color coded highlights, the letters are displayed in highlighting color as seen in the first word of the reading shown above.

To change any of these display settings, tap the button. (Instructions for using the Settings window)
