    The advertising says it's available through Logos and Accordance. A quick look at the product pages actually shows that, for the moment, nothing new is listed for Accordance. It's advertised at Logos, but on pre-pub. So I'm assuming it's in preparation.

    I wonder if BibleWorks also has plans to include it as an add-on?

    Yes, I am aware of it being available in Logos & Accordance. If there's any chance it might be included in BW I'll hold out.
    I generally only use Logos for commentaries and Accordance for language resources BW doesn't have. Other than that BW is my go to for most of my study material.

    What would I like to see in Bible Works 10? I'm not sure.

    If there is one thing that I would "like" to see, it would be the expansion of the Manuscripts to include significant manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible and the LXX, including Biblical manuscripts from Qumran. But for me, that would be "nice", not a "necessity".

    I would also like to see the BW "Help" file issued as a PDF so that I could print it out and have it more readily available. One problem that I have with online help (and others may not) is remembering where I saw that particular help so that the next time I need it I could find it more quickly and easily. With online help (and, again, this is just me) it is often, "where was that? What was it listed under?" I know that the help file changes - which is a bit of a pest for changing PDF files and printouts - but for me, and how I work, it would make life much easier.

    One way to "remember" where something in "Help" is located is to put your cursor over the portion of BW to which your sought-for Help pertains, and hit the f1 key. Help will open with a section of Help which pertains to what your cursor was over. This includes the icons. So, if you remember what the icons open up, you can open up the corresponding Help. Does this Help?

    Until that happens, don't forget, too, that you can add help topics to the Favorites tab.

    I was wondering if anyone has considered putting Bibleworks in the "cloud". At first I would have balked at this and would have not been for it. However, two things have made me be receptive to it. One, my laptop computer doesn't have a DVD-drive and it has made it very inconvienent to install BW on it. I still haven't gotten it loaded on my laptop.

    The second thing that made me change my mind was that I signed up for Office 2013 Home which installs the Office programs on you computer (you download them), but also have them in the cloud where you can access your programs anywhere and anytime. The payment method is on a subscription bases so that you pay $10.00 a month. It's just a thought.

    A second idea I had regarding this is to download the software. I realize the size of the download might be prohibitive for some and there would need to be an alternate means to install but it would be a huge help to me, where I can't just stick a DVD in a drive and click 'install'

    Thanks so much for your consideration,

    That is very helpful. I didn't know that I could do that (probably couldn't find it in the "Help" file ).

    Default Aramaic and Manuscripts

    I would like to see Aramaic New Testament in BW10. I would also like to see manuscripts in Hebrew and Aramaic (Daniel). It would be nice to have a version of BW on my android tablet.

    Default Morphologically-tagged Peshitta for OT, NT, and Apocrypha

    I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this already, but I would like to have a morphologically-tagged Peshitta for OT, NT, and Apocrypha.

    This is already (partially) in BW9. PEH (using the Hebrew alphabet) and PES (using Aramaic font). Both come with corresponding morphologies. Here is what BW says about them:
    In 1905 the British and Foreign Bible Society published an edition of the Gospels in Syriac, reprinted by permission from a revised text of the Peshitta Version which had been prepared by the late Rev. G.H. Gwilliam, B.D., with a Latin translation and critical apparatus, and issued by the Clarendon Press in 1901.

    This is a critical text of the Peshitta that was completed from a collation of manuscripts at the British Museum Library. It is known as a "western" text of the Peshitta and therefore varies to a small degree from other eastern versions of the Peshitta.
    PES - Peshitta NT, Aramaic Font
    PEM - Peshitta NT Morphology, Aramaic Font (add on module)
    PEH - Peshitta NT, Hebrew Font
    PMH - Peshitta NT Morphology, Hebrew Font (add on module)

    These include only the NT. The edition of the Peshitta which was used for BW contained only the Psalms from the OT. I do not know how much work or cost it would be to find include other parts of the OT or Apocrypha.

    Great request! I, too would like to see more Peshitta modules in BibleWorks!
