    However, what jmorgan says would still apply when doing Command Line searches with a morphology version.

So let me choose WTM (for example) as my search version, but still see WTT as the Browse Window text.
    Hello Lee. I think what you are looking for is already possible in BW9. In the Browse window configuration options, click "maintain search version after lemma search". Then try removing WTM from your browse window and doing a right-click "search on lemma". You should then get the lemma results without the WTM version becoming visible.

    FWIW, I personally appreciate having the lemma version on (but far down the list, where I can't see it), because if you then want to copy a word into a word processor, you get it exactly as you would find it in the lexicon. Copying from the analysis window, at least for Greek, gives you the word in bold type, which you then have to "un-bold".

    Right, Don. But I was referring specifically to Command Line searches, not right-click "Search on Lemma" searches.

    Default tabs remember synopsis preference

    How hard would it be for BW 10 (should God so will that it come) to remember a different synopsis tool to accompany the different tabs? Right now BW remembers the last synopsis tool which was opened by the user (regardless of tab). But when I am in my Old Testament tab and open the synopsis tool, I don't want the Aland synopsis of the Gospels. I want something which compares OT with NT or OT to OT. But then, if I switch to my NT tab, I may want that Aland synopsis. But, alas! if I had the OT synopsis open last, that opens instead of Aland. And it cannot open to the NT passage I am studying. So I have to open the desired synopsis, which only opens to the beginning, not to the passage open in my tab. It is great that the synopsis tool tries to open the synopsis window to the passage the user is studying in the analysis window. But if the last synopsis tool you used was in the other testament, BW (obviously) cannot find an appropriate synopsis spot to open, so you have to scroll through to see if one exists. Have I made myself clear?

    Default 2 screens goes to 3

    So I like to set up BWs with 2 windows. But whenever I minimize the program it automatically defaults to 3 windows, adding the Search Window, when I bring BWs program back up.

    Below are pics showing what I talking about:

    I'll set it up like so...

    Then it returns to this after I minimize BW and bring it back up...

    It's annoying. I hope BW tries to fix this. Thanks for listening.

    Default Ditto for NIDNTT if Not Mention

    Would love to see BW10 keeping up with the Jones's, stay competitive in the sense of resources, let publishers and author's know many of us are not buying it in printed text but will use it as BW10 Users/Consumer/Client. My hope is that we are not, soon, obsolete, and the force(s) push us elsewhere.

    Ideas would be starting with more lexical resources/tools added such as the forthcoming New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology, 2 ed, (5 vol), NIDOTT for that matter at some point. Negotiate for adding OT Grammar and Syntax, Exegesis Handbooks for both OT and NT, etc, etc.

    Default More Resources

    I stopped too short, just to push it a little further on the wish list... a few choices of resources on the spectrum regarding NT/OT TC, Idioms, Verbal Aspect, NT Discourse Grammar, and work on Prepositions. Why not dream when it's out there. jwb

    Hi, everything ok, but not the Verbal Aspect of Porter or Campell, what no Classicist would approve. Just new fancy ideas but nothing to do with sound linguistics. Sorry to say that, I've read these books and they would disturb or cause damage for a normal reading of the Word of God. Rest ok. I love Runge.

    Default arcing in version 10

    Here's my vote for both of these. On the "arcing," otherwise known as propositional analysis, I would rather see a robust application of this than the watered down version on www.biblearc.com.

    For information, the second (revised) version of the NIDNTT has now come out. Announcement here (with a free download):

    http://zondervanacademic.com/new-int...y-and-exegesis

    The advertising says it's available through Logos and Accordance. A quick look at the product pages actually shows that, for the moment, nothing new is listed for Accordance. It's advertised at Logos, but on pre-pub. So I'm assuming it's in preparation.

    I wonder if BibleWorks also has plans to include it as an add-on?
