    Default Accessibility Issues

    Font Size adjustment has already been mentioned here. I have a few suggestions though.

    1. Standard web browsers have the ability to use the Ctrl key to increase and decrease font size on the fly:
    • Ctrl + (actually, Ctrl =) increases font size
    • Ctrl - decreases font size
    • Ctrl 0 (zero) returns font size to default browser setting

    It would be handy to see this implemented in BW, so that font size could be expanded on the fly in whatever window is in 'focus'. At present, this works for CHM modules (as a factor of Help File functionalities). It does not work for lexicons, however.

    2. Font Size adjustment for the ENTIRE interface (including toolbars, pop-ups, status bar, etc.). This can be accomplished in Windows globally, but it might be good to have some kind of font size change that would be global for BW in general.

    3. Comic Sans Greek font.
    Just kidding.

    The font issue is not a matter of convenience, it is a matter of 'accessibility' for those with limited eyesight.

    Hi Glenn,

    indeed it works. I thought I tried it already yesterday and it didnt work but now - awesome.
    Thx a lot.

    Blessings,

    Red face word exchange

    It would be a fine thing: I select a word in my language version and it immediately appears that word in Hebrew or Greek.
    God bless you,
    Peter

    Default BW10 approaching release?

    The BW product cycle would suggest that we're approaching a release of BW10. Any thoughts?

    You must have some insider knowledge others don't. I've been using BW since version 7 and there has been no consistent fixed release cycle. We do know there will be a BW10 at some time since Mike B. has already leaked some details of what he's working on for it, but there's no reason to think that there is an imminent release. A good time to release would be around SBL cycles because that gives them a great opportunity to reach a large customer base with great info about the next version. If there were a release imminent, you would hear about it because SBL is coming up in a matter of weeks.

    Please please, at least Unicode for the 'transliteration' modules! But yes, ALL modules ideally.

    Thank you.

    Not that it will change your assessment much (for I am much your junior, despite my leaky memory ), but as I thought about it more I realized I misspoke. My first BW version was 5. I got it when I started Greek and Hebrew in college. My how time flies.

    Mm, so that's harder. I think​ I started with 4, but not certain.
