    Default Updating books.bna to books_sbl.bna or customizing in Mac Preview BW9

    Hi, I love the new BW9--I switched over to a mac about 2 years ago and have missed working with BW9 in class and in research. Now I can use it once again. One thing that I need to change is how the exported biblical book abbreviations are given--I need to use either books_sbl.bna or to copy and paste my own version of this from an edited version of books.bna. How do I do this? I searched my MacBook for books.bna, and could not find it after I installed the Mac Preview BW9--the files seem to be hidden or changed or something.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Well you just go to the C:\ prompt... Just kidding!

    The way to access the BibleWorks folder (that I know of) is to do the following....


    1. Open Finder.
    2. Hold Option and select Go | Library.
    3. Go to Library | Application Support | BibleWorks |Bottles | Bibleworks | drive_c | Program Files | BibleWorks 9


    After you navigate to your \init\ folder, you can use Preview (or some other basic text editor) to edit the files.
