    Default Last Update Erased Tab Names

    I just updated this morning to the latest .exe and I no longer am able to name the tabs. When I right click on a tab, here is what is in the context menu

    Clear tab 1
    Clear all tabs (except current)
    Freeze tab 1 contents
    __________________
    Save Tabs to Disk
    Load Tabs from Disk
    ____________________
    Clear Search window history
    Enable search window history


    Any one else noticed this behavior?

    Default Reverted back to previous exe

    When I reverted back to the previous exe the naming options reappeared. Strange.

    Sounds to me like there may be an Arminian loose in your computer!

    I have no answers to your issue, but you raised an interesting question for me. How does one roll back or, in your words, "revert" to an earlier .exe (i.e., an earlier version of the program executable)? Much obliged for your answer.

    Hold down the Shift key when you start BW. You will be presented a list of options.

    There is another way to do this, after you have BW running. When you go to Help, BibleWorks on the Internet, Check for Updates, then click on Options and check "Show Downloaded Patches." Then you will see all the previous patches. Find the date on the .exe patch you want, and check it. Then apply the patch. This will give you an older version of BW. In case the current version causes you trouble, for the few hours before the programmers fix it (after you report the problem to them, of course), you can use the older version which worked better for you.
