    [quote=Bennett B. Wethered;10033].....this has already been offered as a 'plug-in' feature for the KJV translation. Someone, a while back (on the BibleWorks Forums, though I don't know who, or what post or thread), created a downloadable plug-in, that would show the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the KJV, in red.[/quote]

    That was me. It is a color file (.clr) and I believe Michael Hanel has it posted on the BW blog.

  2. Default where to find the red

    Thanks, Scott.

    Roger (and anyone else who wants the red), go to ; go down to the entry for April 27, 2006, entitled Color Files, and voilą, you've got it!

    And if anyone else wants to do this for other versions, let me know and I can make those files available too. (that way everyone has a standard they can disagree with! ) Thanks to everyone who make contributions like this available to other users, we're richer for it!

    Actually, I wouldn't like seeing that; I really don't like the idea of a canon within the canon that such a distinction implies.
    Millions of people, including me, like having Jesus' words in red to quickly spot a verse where Jesus is speaking. I've been reading the Bible for over 24 years by the way, and am in no way a 'Bible noob' in case anyone was wondering.

    I personally think it is kind of a rip-off for someone to charge money for a Bible program and not even give an option as simple as a red letter version of the KJV, but maybe that's just me.

    If they think red letters aren't important options for millions who like them I'd say they aren't on top of customers needs, especially since there are many very good Bible software programs out there for free which do offer red letter options. Looks like if they're charging money for it they could even include both options, or one or the other at least.

    I was disappointed at not having red letter KJV as an option, surprised really. Thanks to Adelphos for his red letter version, I'm glad someone saw the need to have one.

    I don't long as I can have YHWH's words in bold caps. I am not sure what to do about El Shaddai, etc.

    Amen Dan. And I guess you wouldn't go for gray, pink, and so forth either ;o)

    Default I have typed up the Jesus words in red

    I have typed up the Jesus words in red. AND YES, they are much different from the rest of the bible. I have made the red text into handbooks

    Sooooo, I'm asking.
