[click for larger view]

BibleWorks 10 sports a new screen layout. The four column layout has been kept, but you can now close the various columns. The top portion of each column are now collapsible for a cleaner look. Users can define their own color schemes for the BibleWorks windows and share them with other users. A new Analysis Tab Options window allows you to hide and show various tabs and customize tab behavior. All Analysis Tabs can also be hidden for a cleaner look. There are now two instances of the Verse Tab, permitting you the option of opening a verse tab in both columns.


Greater Mac compatibility

BibleWorks now comes with the Mac Installer

 

Though the previous BibleWorks Mac Installer covered almost everything our typical user needed, that wasn't enough for us. We continue to push beyond 98% and have substantially improved the Mac Installer compatibility and functionality. More importantly, the program now ships with the Mac Installer--no separate purchase is required!
