I've enclosed a file called "christ_red_kjv.zip" which contains the .clr file. This is the standard Red Letter Edition that appears in the printed editions.

Unzip this file into you x:\Program Files\BibleWorks 7.0\database folder.

That's a nice commentary on the Color Selection Window, but how does it find, highlight, and color all of the words of Christ in red, either zipped or unzipped?

If I understood Bennett's post right it was a joke. if you follow what he does it turns "jesus christ" in the text red. a pun on red letter Jesus Christ...

I thought he was telling me that I did all that work for nothing, for he began his post with "OR..." meaning that there was another way to do in seconds what it took me hours to do.

I didn't think he was joking, but either way, I didn't want others, especially new users, to be confused by his post, for a new user might think that his post was a substitute for my file, and thus a new user would be deprived of the real thing.

Oops (as some would say, mea culpa), I'm sorry, you meant the words Jesus Christ said in Scripture were to be in red, not His name. No, I wasn't joking, I was just confused (the end of a long, joyful, busy Lord's Day).

As Emily Litella would say, "Never mind!"

Having made myself look quite foolish by my earlier post, I'm almost hesitant to ask, but......

Having properly figured out what Scott's zip file was for :o, I decided to download it myself. I have downloaded it to the "databases" folder. I think I followed instructions, opened it, and it now sits in "databases." I have closed and re-opened BW after doing this, and it hasn't 'taken.' Also, trying to Open or Extract the WinZip file has caused my system (XP) to crash 3 times; happily, I've gotten my configuration back by using System Restore. - Help! What am I doing wrong? (I love the product, but I'm certainly no programmer).

To "activate" the color file, go TOOLS>COLOR SELECTION WINDOW (there's also an icon for this). In box #3, select "KJV" and "christ red KJV" shold appear. (If you don't see box 3, click on the little cheron in the bottom right of the window to make it appear.)

Check the *round* button to the left of "christ red kjv" to activate that color file.

That should do it...

Everything Ben said is correct, but I'd like to clarify that you don't have to check the radio buttion to make the color file active, but only the check box. In other words, if the check box is checked, then all the coloring for that file will show in the browse window, and you can have as many boxes checked as you like.

I believe, at least according to the help file, that checking the radio button merely means that any color changes you make in the browse window will apply that color file, and that color file only.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

I have box #3 (Color file to save color data) visible, it (kjv) is checked, in its button and box, but there is no "christ red kjv" box below it. The "kjv" option is alone in #3. - Now what?

Are you sure you have unzipped the file and that "christ red kjv.CLR" is in your DATABASE folder? If so, it should appear in the Color selection window.

Success! I sort of had it in the 'database' folder, but not properly unzipped. A bit of a klutz with WinZip, I'm afraid. It's there now. - Thanks, again.:D
