1. Is there a way to set which bibles pop up on the mouse over a verse in the analyis window?

2. Is there a way to enlarge the text of the study guides?

Thanks,

John Fidel

Question #1- On the toolbar, go to VIEW>Choose Pop-up versions. You can make two sets, one default and a second set whe you hold down shift and mouse over.

I don't know about #2.

And as a last resort, you can always use the instructions/help files. Each beta-tester was assigned a section of the help to read over and test, to make sure that what was in the program matches what is in the help and vice-versa. I find the help files, movies, and opening window (with all the options of things to do, like write an exegetical paper) extremely helpful in learning how to use v.7.

I actually tried to use the online help, but did not know the appropriate phrase to use to get the answer.

Thanks for your reply.

I got my BW7 and installed it, went through the instruction videos and the help files but to my dismay when I went to use the ESV in BW7, there were no cross references? Can any of you help me as to what I need to configure to have the cross references in the ESV return? This was a feature I used greatly in BW6 and I'll have to go back to it if I can't use the cross references that was provided in BW6. I tried the help files and the only English version with any cross references I could find was the NAS were it was tied to the version notes in the Word analysis window.

I also noticed that the TSK cross reference column in BW 7 appears only with the KJV whereas in BW6 it appears with multiple other versions. In the videos it is shown with at least NLT. Don't know if this is intentional or something left undone.

As a work-around you can go to the top menu bar to Resources, then Miscellaneous and select Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge; a separate small window will open that will change the TSK content as you change verses.

I agree it would be nicer to have the column at the far right work automatically with the ESV and others.

Fascinating. That worked early in the beta and disappeared over halfway through, and none of us noticed. I assume (hope?) it's a bug, but will have to report it to make sure.

That's strange, since the current Options (as written) seem to imply that TSK Cross references would pop up in all cases (except for the KJV and NAS, which list other options).

The listed sequence, clicking on the wrench icon, is:
Options>Option Flags>Browse Window Configuration Options, then with "Show TSK Cross References in Analysis Window" as one of the options.

My hope is that this is tweaked such that, in all English translations except for the KJV and the NAS/NAU, the TSK will pop up to the right in the Analysis section. Do I hear a second?! :D

This is what I am currently seeing with the latest EXE.

Joe, when you say this (above), are you saying it does show the TSK with other English translations, or it does not? With my current BW7 .exe, the TSK only shows with the KJV, although, by the language of the Options Flags to which I referred, it seems as though it should (and I wish it would) show in most English translations.

with the latest version .012m I see TSK in ESV for instance, but I do not see it in NAS. I believe this is the way it should work. There is an option for NAS Cross Ref's and that is checked and so NAS has diff cross ref's than the TSK.

"BibleWorks, we've got a problem." When I go to Help>About BibleWorks, I'm told my current version is 7.0.012g. When I go to Help>BibleWorks on the Internet>Check for Updates, I have today (all day) been told "There are no new updates!" :confused:

I've heard (in more than one Forum post) reference to update 12m. :( I, who had felt adequate, now feel inadequate. Help! :eek:

When you go to Check for Updates go to Options, then Enter Access Code(s). Make sure you have typed in "preview" without the quotation marks. Doing that should give you access to the updates which are more than adequately previewed here (http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1217).

That said, if you type in the code, recheck for updates and you get nothing, attach a post to that Thread and see if you can't get them to figure it out. I assume they had wires crossed for BW6 updates vs. Bw7 ones. I was in the same boat as you until tonight, the update finally appeared.

Patience is a virtue. You'll get the update tomorrow if not today.

Hi Bennett,

When was the last time you looked for updates. I was not seeing them either until a little while ago when Mike changed something, then I was able to see 12m.

I had checked mere seconds before sending my post.

As Gomer Pyle used to say, "Shazam!"
As Latka used to say, "Thank you very much."
That did the trick. Thanks, Michael.

Just beware that "preview" updates are not thoroughly tested, so you may end up with unexpected problems. If you don't type "preview" in your access codes line, you'll get only the updates that the programmers consider stable. So, if you have time to play with this, use "preview," but if you'd rather not bother with perhaps unwanted crashes or multiple updates daily, just leave the access code line blank.
