First, let me say, I am a fan of BibleWorks. I purchased version 8 and just received version 9. While the icons in version 8 were simplistic maybe, they were not looking ugly, as in version 9. Version 9's icons are extremely poor quality and UGLY. I can only hope that in an update - shortly to follow - that the icons will be replaced! Common guys, can't you pay a professional to make you high quality icons?! Afterall, you are selling software! I am sure a few hundred dollars would be enough to get a good set of icons! Why do you want to turn people off from using the program? I can barely look at it, because of these ugly buttons to click!
