I finally got BW8 yesterday (yayyy!), and found it wouldn't accept my unlock codes (booo!). So I emailed them, hope I get them soon.

I watched some videos, and tried the Cross version search mode. I did exactly what the video said. Does not work. The little yellow box comes up, but it only searches the displayed version.

Anyone else run into this?

I tried a few of the modes, and it works for me.

Check the 3rd line “Search and Display All Same Language Versions” after “Search → Cross Version Search Mode,” and do the search.

At least in BW 7, cross-version searches didn't work in browse mode, even if you have multiple versions set to display. So you might try clicking the little footprints and see if that fixes things.

Grace and Peace,

Ding ding ding, Steve gets it.

I was doing everything the video said - but evidently you have to do it in the single-verse display.

Thanks, Steve!

I didn't know that tidbit, but I like it. I like using multi-version search mode, but there are times I just want to seach my main (search) version. Switching between multi-version view mode and browse mode is easier than changing the search mode.
