What Operating System does TheWord require?

What operating system does it run on?theWord has been developed for the Windows operating system, and is compatible with Windows 98 upwards (including Windows XP, Vista, and 7). Some of the unicode features are not available in older Win9x systems. There is special support for localized Win9x systems though (e.g. Arabic Windows 98 will properly display contextual shaped Arabic text). In Windows 2K upwards, there is full support for all languages.

NOTE: Being a Mac or Linux user, you should be aware of the possibility of using Windows programs on your platform via a WINE (Windows Interpretation and Emulator). This WINE program is also free.

F5 theWord Copy Verses Function

F5 theWord Copy Verses Function By David Cox Class Objective: This TW feature is for formatting and inserting verses into the clipboard so that you can insert them into another application or program, or into another module within TW. Note that theWord will allow you to make very specific and minute tweaks to how it pastes Bible text into the clipboard. Although at first you probably think that this is not very important nor useful, think again. The reason why you want to understand and dominate this class is because if you use Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, or some other software in your ministry, and you use the Bible in those programs, you will want to use TW’s features to quickly insert Bible verses into that other application.
