[LibX] Google Scholar and Edition Builder Options

Rather than setting Google Preferences each time the toolbar only needs a one time install. Also more friendly.

I have never known what

Edition Builder=>Options=>Provide Magic Search in Default Context Menu.

The help states:
If checked the default context menu will include the magic search option.

Also, what do the following Options mean now that the button does not appear in Scholar:
Insert cues into the Google Scholar results page.
Disable all Google Scholar support.
URL to go to when Scholar search failed.
Don't show results page if Scholar heuristics failed.

Also, independent of Scholar Options:
Would this be my ILL URL:
http://gc.cuny.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/illiad.dll/OpenURL

Hi

For what's it worth, I think if your library is signed on for the
library links programme, it duplicates to a large extent that portion
of Google Scholar + Libx.

Of course, with Libx the user doesnt need to set the preference
outside campus, but I suppose if a user borthers to install libx , he
probably will bother to set the Google Scholar setting?

That said, I am not sure whether this issue is related to the following function

Google Scholar Support (The 'Magic Button')
Select text and search for the selected text on Google Scholar. In
addition, LibX will read Scholar's results for you, determine whether
the paper was found and if so, ask the OpenURL resolver for a paid-for
copy, should you not have access to the copy to which Scholar links.
You can use this feature even from inside a PDF, which makes
retrieving papers referenced in a PDF file a snap.

I never got that to work, is it still working now?
