I have trouble using BibleWorks on my parallel desktop. I read the following in an explanation by BibleWorks as to why they do not plan to make a version Mac compatible.

"First, high-end products similar to BibleWorks already serve the Macintosh market. We deem it best not to introduce new competition with those who already serve the Macintosh market in a way that is currently satisfactory. "

I would like to know the name or names of "high-end products similar to BibleWorks".
my e-mail address is dhbarnhouse@dock.net
Thank you

The high-end Mac product is Accordance Bible software. However, I am not having any problems with BW 8 using Parallels 5 provided I open BW 8 when Parallels view is in a separate window and not in Coherence. Once the program opens, switching to Coherence works fine. This happened about 6 months ago with a BW 8 update. It has to do with resolution upon opening, I think. Try this and see if BW 8 works better for you running in a separate window.
