    Default Top threads highlighting BW 10 features

    With the recent announcement, I quickly made up my mind and upgraded to the latest version. I am searching through the forums to help myself get up to speed on the features of version 10. It occurred to me that those of you who already have gone through the process may have favorite threads that did a good job explaining changes, tips, etc. I wonder if you could post links to them in reply to this to make it easier to find them.

    Thanks to any who can participate. And always, thanks to the BW people for a wonderful tool I plan to keep using for a long time to come.

    My suggestion is to go the YouTube and search for Bibleworks 10. They have their own channel with 221 videos explaining the new features as well as some you may not be aware of. Here is the link:

    Hope this helps.

    BW8 to BW9 was a more significant upgrade, imo, but there were some important things added moving to BW10.
    The main thing was the fuzzy English search and a whole bunch of new resources.
    Quick summary HERE.
    And a couple years later, they added the Eerdmans Bible Dictionary for free! Info here.

    New Features and Databases Added in BibleWorks 10

    Here's a survey of the new features and databases in BibleWorks 10!

    New Screen Layout and Colors

    New screen layout and colors



    BibleWorks 10 sports a new screen layout. The four column layout has been kept, but you can now close the various columns. The top portion of each column are now collapsible for a cleaner look. Users can define their own color schemes for the BibleWorks windows and share them with other users. A new Analysis Tab Options window allows you to hide and show various tabs and customize tab behavior. All Analysis Tabs can also be hidden for a cleaner look. There are now two instances of the Verse Tab, permitting you the option of opening a verse tab in both columns.

    Greater Mac compatibility
    BibleWorks now comes with the Mac Installer
    Though the previous BibleWorks Mac Installer covered almost everything our typical user needed, that wasn't enough for us. We continue to push beyond 98% and have substantially improved the Mac Installer compatibility and functionality. More importantly, the program now ships with the Mac Installer--no separate purchase is required!


    Screen scaling
    Adjust screen font size for a variety of displays

    The top level windows and text in BibleWorks can now be scaled larger, making reading on high resolution/retina displays, projectors, and tablet PCs a little easier.
    Morphology Coloring

    Search for "love" and find verses with "love", "loves", "beloved", "loving", etc. You can do both Link based and Porter Stemming based fuzzy searches for English versions.

    The Concise Greek–English Lexicon of the New Testament (2009) (Frederick William Danker with Kathryn Krug)
    From the Preface: "The publication in 2000 of the third edition of A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature (BDAG) endeavored to meet some of the demand for exhibition of numerous developments in lexicography within recent decades. Chief among these developments has been an interest in expanding the definition of source words beyond the translations or glosses traditionally found in the literature. Inasmuch as the older method permeated shorter dictionaries of the Greek New Testament, the present work takes on new directions.
    "This lexicon is therefore neither a revision of any previous small-scale dictionary of New Testament Greek, nor an abridgment of BDAG, although I have certainly benefited from innumerable sources of information, ancient and modern, that make their mark in the pages of BDAG."
    BibleWorks Manuscript Project
    Two new manuscript transcriptions have been added: Ephraemi Rescriptus (M-04) and Claromontanus (M-06). Neither has morphology yet. Both are based on Tischendorf transcriptions. Neither has image sets, but M-04 does have images of the Tischendorf transcription. Vaticanus and Sinaiticus now have completed morphology. A complete morphology for Alexandrinus has also been added.†

    The Westminster Hebrew OT morphology database has been updated to the latest version. The Hebrew Vocabulary files have also been synched with the changes in the MORPH database so that they share common lemma spellings.
    AGNT Update
    The Friberg AGNT morphology has now been updated to NA28. Also a Byzantine (Robinson-Pierpont) version has been added.
    Friberg AGNT 2014
    With both NA28 and Robinson-Pierpont texts and Friberg morphology. An additional "English" version is included that is composed of the English Reference Glosses in AGNT/ABYZ (AERG/BERG).
