    Default BibleWorks Editor

    Hi BTers,

    There have been a couple of posts recently about the BW editor. There have been a couple of nagging editor problems that have been around for a while but which have not been fixed because we cannot duplicate them. If you can figure out a way that we can duplicate them, please let me know and we can fix them in short order.

    We are aware that the editor has been a weak link in the BibleWorks system for some time. We want you to know that we take this issue seriously and apologize for the frustration that a few people feel. However, I want you to know that relief is in sight. We have completely replaced the editor now with a new editor that has all the capabilities of Wordpad and a lot more. It has full support for Unicode, multilevel undo, left-wrapped Hebrew and a wealth of formatting features. We also have BibleWorks now exporting Unicode Hebrew and Greek. These are major changes and we will need to do a lot of testing to get the kinks out but we will get it to you as soon as we can. I can't give you a date yet but I wanted you to know that some good things are coming.

    God bless,

    Default Autosave?

    The editor hasn't given me much trouble (though I miss "undo").

    What would be most helpful is autosave. BibleWorks is the kind of program you can work in for hours at a time, and it's easy to lose stuff - usually because of a Windows problem, not a BibleWorks problem. (Maybe for BibleWorks 7? )

    Glad to hear the editor refit is underway! Thanks for letting us know.

    The editor upgrade is way too major to be put into earlier versions as an upgrade. It requires a major rewrite of almost every major subsystem. We will probably have a 6.5 before the next major release so we can share some goodies a bit sooner. So it is not a long ways off. Sorry I can't give you a date but hopefully you will understand.

    Default As always...

    As always Mike, it will be worth the wait, of that I'm fairly certain.
