    It's not that complicated. :) Especially since VirtualBox is free and you already have Windows. Download and install VB. Install Windows (don't panic, you're only going to end up running one copy)....

    I would strongly recommend a VM, not Bootcamp. Using Bootcamp means you have to reboot your machine every time you want to get into BW and again to get back to the Mac. That's two reboots every time...

    This has been a problem in Parallels since at least v3. It's one of the main reasons I switched to Fusion. I also have Virtualbox running on one of my iMacs (for BW; I don't run Windows games, so...

    That would be great, but the support person was pretty clear that it wasn't going to be fixed in BW7.

    You're the man, thanks, Scott. I received confirmation from support today that it is indeed a bug, but apparently an unfixable one. So I have to buy the upgrade to BW8 if I want Strong searches to...

    Verses or hits? But, either way, the numbers are still plainly wrong (or at least unexpected, given the queries). There are only 126 verses in the OT that have justice period, so there's no way that...

    I think the latter is definitely preferable; that's about the size I keep Hebrew in Bibleworks itself.

    I'll echo all of the other "THANK YOU"s. This is something I've wanted in BW for years.
