Why "Right to Left" needed for Chinese?
Hello, Mr. Bushnell,
Why is "Right to Left" needed for the Chinese version? "Thai" is listed in the "Right to Left" languages, but not other Asian languages such as "Chinese".
In my experience, on one PC with both "Right to Left" and "Asian Languages" turned on, the Chinese version works. On another PC with only "Asian Languages" turned on, the downloaded Chinese version does not appear in Bibleworks (although Chinese works fine in other programs). Is it because Bibleworks requires the "Right to Left" switch to be on for Chinese to work?
Another matter, in Help notes 18b, the term was typed wrong as "2. Left to Right and Far Eastern Languages Support".

KOR works beautifully in Korean WINDOWS XP
I had experienced problems with BW7 NOT showing the KOR version on my Korean Windows XP. This problem has been solved by installing the "complex languages" in the control panel's language settings.
Thank you BW for making the Korean bible available to me. :)
Thanks for including the Chinese Bible

Second, I agree with John Chan that it was kind of odd to have both "Right to Left" and "East Asian Languages" installed to see the Chinese Bible. Normally just the "East Asian Languages" should be enough. Anyway, ultimately it works at the end and I can see the Chinese text. Thanks for solving this in the forum. :D
New user who wants to see Chinese bible
I just installed BW7 last week, so I have little knowledge on how to use it. So, please pardon if I ask some really basic question.
My current problem is that I cannot see the chinese bible I just downloaded from the web. I downloaded all 4 files, and the program seemed to have finished the copying. But when I reopen the BW7, I still could not see the chinese on my dropdown list.
I am using XP, and I have been typing both traditional and simplified chinese for a while now. I checked the language installation option under window, and it seems that I have both far east language and right-to-left installed.
btw, I tried downloading the chinese bible a second time, but the program seemed to run into some problems during copying/installation. It gave me a blank dialog box. I had to use task manager to shut it down manually.
Another thing, I did not see a place to put in the access code when I downloaded the files. I assume that requirement has been removed, because I had no problem in downloading.
Can I Change Chinese Font
I downloaded the Chinese database yesterday, and it worked great!
The only thing is I can't seem to change the font. I can change the size, but regardless of what font I selected, it always display the same.
Can I insert other materials ?
I am sung wook in south korea.
I have good materials of bible in korean.
How can I insert them in BW7?
command line keeps changing my arabic back to english so I can't write and search in
Hi, I had just downloaded the arabic version and it's working. I can see the arabic version active and when I go to the command line and change to arabic from the windows language bar, it keeps changing it back to English and I can't type more than one letter at a time and it comes back to English. That even when I click on the language bar at the bottom to change to arabic it changes and return back to English so fast.
How do I fix this? knowing that I want to search for words and phrases not letters :)
problem with korean bible
The name of Ruth in OT, and epistles of John in NT of Korean Bible are different from other Bibleworks version.
I hope you fix it as soon as possible.
Crash on running the updates
Hi, I just bought a new machine and it's running on Vista 32-bit. I installed BW 7.0 uneventfully. Then I did the updates, and apparently, it downloaded all the files successfully, but when it's trying to install them, it failed on certain items (couldn't remember which, but it said something like could not find certain files). And then at one point, the updating process crashed, the same happened on the next few tries. The other thing is, I've downloaded the Chinese bibles (CU5 & CUS) and I "believed" they were installed successfully (as I could no longer find these updates), but in the program, I don't see them in the version dropdown list. Any help is appreciated.
BW7 reads Chinese search as strange codes
I use Vista Home Basic and BW7 and I have CU5 & CUS successfully installed. I set CU5 as the seach version and typed Chinese in the search command line but BW7 recognized the Chinese as strange codes and says:
The following word or form cannot be found in the current search version:
I can see the Chinese characters in the command line.
Can you tell me how to resolve this problem?
BW7 reads Chinese search as strange codes
I tried to search by right clicking word/phrase in CU5 but BW7 still read my search as strange codes and the same error message appeared.:confused:
I used XP before and I could search CU5X in BW7 by typing Chinese in the command line without any problems. Although I can use online Chinese bible to do the same thing, I'm still disappointed that I can't search Chinese bible in BW7.
