Any way to enlarge the scroll bars? See screen shots. They are nearly unusable at this size for me.

Perhaps a related problem that a number of my students using Macs also have:
If you go to Resources in the Analysis Window, then choose the (eg) Lexicons subtab, the selection check boxes are so small as to be impossible to choose.

The small checkboxes and radio buttons are under development. Hopefully, it will not take very long to repair. The small scrollbars on Retina Macs is now fixed. Here are the steps to repair it:



Update to the newest BW Mac Installer: http://kb.bibleworksllc.com/kmp/index.php?/article/AA-02949/96/Usage-Tutorial/BibleWorks-and-Macs/How-Do-I-Update-the-BibleWorks-Mac-Installer.html
Verify that BibleWorks | Auto-Enable High Resolution Mode is checked.
Update the EXE


If that doesn’t work, then try these steps:



Run BibleWorks (with Auto-Enable High Resolution Mode checked).
Select BibleWorks | Run Command from the main menu.
In the Command box, type in regedit and click the Run button. This opens the Registry Editor.
Please browse to My Computer| HKEY_CURRENT_USER |Control Panel | Desktop |WindowsMetrics
The keys ScrollWidth and ScrollHeight should be set to -240. If it is not -240, please double-click it and enter -240.
Close the Registry Editor windows and restart BibleWorks.

I wasn't sure how to update the EXE so I followed the second set of instructions. Entered -240 and restarted BW10. The Browse and Analysis scroll bars are good but the Search Window hasn't changed. See attached screen shot. Anything I can do for that?

Sorry I missed this earlier. To update the EXE, just go to Help | Check for Updates...
