    Unhappy Word Pictures by ATR

    So sad (and a bit strange since it is so common) to see Word Pictures by A.T. Robertson gone from BW8. Any chance it might be available for download later? Anybody know?

    Default Really?

    They left out ATR's Word Pictures? I hadn't noticed that yet! Why O why?

    Default Robertson's Word Pictures

    For now see BW8 help, chapter 4, Databases Removed from Bibleworks 8.
    Also see this thread: https://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3017


    Note that over at Crosswalk's sight, there was a copyright renewal in 1960: http://bible.crosswalk.com/Commentar...sWordPictures/

    I hope we can work something soon! I have it in Libronix, too. But that just isn't the same-too slow, too hard to pull up, etc. We could try linking to Libronix or the Web, in the mean time.

    Default Strange

    The strange thing is that it is available for free on e-Sword. Not sure why it would have been a problem for BW.

    Link to Libronix RWP, if you have it.
    In BW, you can add it in Resources menu, Edit External Links or edit the shellexec.txt file in BW8/init directory (either way see BW8 help, ch. 11, External Links Manager).

    Default Robertson's Word Pictures

    I agree it would be nice for all previous BW owners to somehow bring RWP into BW8. If it was a HTML Help file, we could bring it forward. But it was a BW database. I've tried several ways but have yet to succeed.

    BW staff, is there a way you can provide for us to pull RWP out of our previous installation and recompile it for a BW8 resource? What were the terms of the licensing agreement?

    jbartee, the External Link above should be in a right-click menu in the browse window. Did you save the shellexec.txt file as a text file?

    Greg,
    If it were up to me I would put RWP back in or post the text. Unfortunately we cannot do that. It was removed because we learned that the last volume is still under copyright. It is true that it is available at various places on the web and claimed to be public domain, but it is not PD, or at least the last volume is not. We tried to come to an agreement with the copyright holder, but we were not able to come to terms. We did try very hard. We believe that as a matter of conscience and Biblical ethics we have to abide by the copyright laws when they do not conflict with other Biblical requirements. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this causes. We encourage others NOT to try to make the RWP available publicly without contacting the copyright holder.

    While I miss the RWP (sort of... only a little, really), I really admire and appreciate the integrity of BW.

    Default Public Domain Substitute for RWP

    In the next version of BibleWorks, would it be possible to substitute Vincent's Word Studies for RWP?
