Thread: Bibleworks & Tablets: Display Settings

    Default Bibleworks & Tablets: Display Settings

    I would like to hear how people who have Bibleworks installed on a Windows 8 tablet or computer with a touch screen set up the view options in a touch-friendly way. For example, can you make the icons bigger? What size of fonts do you use? Is there a simple way to optimize Bibleworks for tablet screens? (I'm running Bibleworks on a Surface Pro 3, and the text is so small it makes my eyes hurt.)

    Thanks,

    David

    David, there is a limit to what you can do under BW9. You can open the SETUP dialog and select fonts and choose large fonts for some things, but the options are limited. In BW10 you will be able to scale the entire screen for top level windows and we are testing on a Surface 3. It looks great. So we are aware of the issue and working to address it. Unfortunately the solution is extremely complex (months of work) and we cannot make it available in BW9. BW10 will be available some time in 2015, Lord willing, but we can't say anything more than that. So hang in there. The current environment is a challenge for programmers on a variety of fronts. Operating System variants, screen sizes and computer capabilities are all over the place.

    Thanks, Mike. The text is very small, but clear after disabling display scaling on Bibleworks. It displays final on an external monitor.
