    Just off the top of head, my suggestions for BibleWorks 10:
    Surely that list isn't really "off the top of your head". If so your library work has had a profound influence on the list of resources you keep on your head

    With absolutely no intent to minimize the other suggestions, many of which I'm not familiar with, I would pare down slightly Kevin's--impressive!--list and put the following as a priority:

    Jenni and Westermann's Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament
    One other thing I would really like to see is this: I don't have the full-blown Logos setup and don't often use Logos apart from a few specific things, but one feature I find very helpful is the ability to save several layouts and come back to them. It's sometimes a little tedious in BW if you're working on a passage for instance with the parallel windows, plus a floating window, etc., to have to set that up again each time. Being able to save setups would be a huge advantage and time saver. Having a dozen or so tabs, as is currently the case, is very helpful, but these are more limited, and I for one have tended to use them more for permanent setups (i.e., one tab for Josephus, one tab for the Apostolic Fathers, etc.).

    I would also repeat the suggestion someone made of a "mini" version for iphones, and the like. Not necessarily one that would be sold separately from the full version--I think that's where the copyright issues that BW has mentioned on several occasions would come in--but a scaled-down version for BW's regular users (that would certainly bring overall sales up as well!).

    Default Text file for full Lexham English Bible is available

    The TXT file for the complete Lexham english bible (both Old and new Testaments) is available at http://www.lexhamenglishbible.com/download/LEB.txt, but I don't have enough technical savvy to turn it into a usable file with the Version Database Compiler. If anyone is interested in taking this on as a project, I would be grateful!

    Again another thing in the department for small items:
    - when navigating the Result window lists up and down, I would like the Browse window to auto-update. There is no need to be forced to press Return for that. Why would you scroll down the list if not to look up the text in the Browse window.

    Maybe this is already possible in Options?

    If I understand you, click in the results list and press the left and right arrows instead of the up and down arrows.
