In BW 6 we could change the directories used by BibleWorks by means of the Options menu. But in BW 7 the Directories tab has disappeared from the Options menu.

Do you know whether there is a way to change the directories in BW 7? Can the user modify with a text editor the file "BW7Dir.ini" in order to do this?

(Customizing the directories is useful in order to make easier the backup of the user files of the program. Also when you are running out of space on a drive and want to move part of the installation to another.)

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't see right off where all the contents of the Directories tab in BW6 have gone.

In a pinch, I'd directly edit the BW700.ini and BW7Dir.ini files found in the Windows directory.

Also, under Option Flags > Startup Options, try Setup Use separate directory for each configuration, which might handle part of your needs.
