    Default Original Living Bible | Help with Compiling

    BW Forum Folks:

    My grandfather (KNT) gave me digital files for his paraphrase of the Living Bible before he died ten years ago. However, the files are formatted for Ventura, a typesetting tool. Does anyone know of any programs out there that would help me convert these files into BW's formatting? See attached for sample file and css like definitions.

    What I have done before is use WordPad and do a lot of "Replace all" so that you get it to look correct. Some of the formatting (e.g. different lines within a verse, varying indentation) will not work for a regular, searchable Bible version in BW. What a couple German versions have done is add a slash / to notify us that they want a poetic line break there. If you want to keep different indentations, you might use a system of double slashes for greater indent. Other than doing this by "Replace all" I know of no program which does this. But others are more up on software than I.
    God bless your efforts.
