Hi,

I am using Bibleworks 10 on an Apple MacBook. I am busy doing a Masters in Theology, New Testament, at the University of South Africa.

In the browse screen, it shows me a single verse, and the Greek text beneath it.

If I search for a pericope or a chapter, I get the whole section, and then underneath it, the Greek for the section.

Is there a way of setting it up so that for a portion, I see English verse, Greek text, next English verse, Greek text, etc, etc, etc?

Thanks in advance

Tim

See if the Parallel Versions feature does what you want. Go to Tools > Viewing the Text > Parallel Versions Window

Hi Tim,

You can use the spin buttons at the top right of the Browse Window to change verses. If you have a single verse displaying, with (for example) an English version and a Greek text below it, this display format will continue verse after verse by using the spin buttons.

You can also have one version (for example, an English text) in the Browse Window as the search version, and display browse mode using the browse button in the upper left corner of the Browse Window, and then display the Greek text in the Browse Tab in browse mode on the right side. This display will be very similar to the Parallel Versions Window.

I suggest watching the BibleWorks YouTube videos. They will offer a lot of suggestions for how to use the program in ways that will be beneficial to your study.

Blessings,
Glenn
