BibleView Menu Icons

Class Objective: We will explain a little bit about the BibleView Option Icons (Menu) at the left of the BibleView window.

First of all, you will need to open a BibleView window if one is not already open. F11 will open a new BibleView window. (A BibleView window is a window that allows you to view a Bible. Secondly, if the menu icons are not visible you will need to toggle them on, with Control+T. Continue reading BibleView Menu Icons



Module Sets: Specialized Categories

Module Sets: Specialized Categories

When you make a module set, the left hand window has a search function that will search all filenames and filter all files to only those fitting the search criteria. You can use this to make specialize Module Layout Sets in an easy way.




Step 1: In Windows File Explorer, examine your files. Here rename the files of a specific category, say files dealing with the “Atonement”, and add a special unique code to identify the file as belonging to that category.

Let’s take the atonement category. On my website, you search for that category. Simply find a single file that has the topic or category you are looking for and examines the different parts of the post.

module-sets-making-category

Note on this image the various parts in blue. First of all, there are “Categories” under the Title. You can click on that category link and see all in that category. Second, there is a series tag which is seen in “This entry is part 2 of 11 in the series Salvation-Atonement“. This is the same as the list in the box “Salvation-Atonement”. You can Control+Click on each of the modules in the box and a separate browser tab will open with that post in it. You can also just type in the topic in the search box at the top right of the sidebar.




Method One: Series tagged: Salvation-Atonement http://www.twmodules.com/series/salvation-atonement/
The series available are in the right-hand sidebar, so click on Salvation-Atonement link. Note that these change constantly. So as they grow larger (more than 40 files), I am splitting them into more specific categories, like I recently broke the atonement modules off from salvation where they were before.

Criteria: I tag these by hand, so I can miss some, or miscategorize a book or two sometimes.

Method Two: Category tagged: http://www.twmodules.com/category/atonement/

Note that this is a valid category from the website, and by just adding “/category/” you can access the website and these modules.




Criteria: I also tag these by hand.

 Method Three: Searching the website. In the search box in the top right-hand side at the top of the sidebar, there is a search box, and you can search on the files on the basis of your word.

Criteria: The only way a module will end up in a search is if the search word is actually in the post somewhere.

Note: As with all of these methods, there is a margin for error. Sometimes the search word appears in the post, but the module is not about that subject at all.




Once you have downloaded the modules that you want for a category module set (or select them from your list of modules), you can easily prep them for the Module Layout Set. Here, just add to the filename the identifier you decided on. Here I added (atone) as my identifier, and put it right after the filename (see below). Surrounding the identifier with parentheses “()” makes it harder for some other module to mistakenly be included.

Within theWord, make a module layout set.

See How to Make Module Sets

Then search in the left panel for “(atone)”. This will quickly make a layout for atonement. As an alternative, you can also make a doctrinal layout set, and have these in a folder within that set.






Using Inline Commentaries

CLASS OBJECTIVE: In this tutorial class, I will show you how to use theWord inline commentaries function.




What you see below is a simple BibleView window (KJV on left, commentary on the right). What makes this such a powerful tool is that you can set your commentaries in this inline commentary function, and you can read through/study through a passage of Scripture and read the commentary with it quickly.

Before we get too involved in this one, there is a short-cut  key to do this, which first is clicking in the BibleView Window you want the commentaries to appear in, and the typing a single letter:

N – Toggles the commentaries off (hides them).
C – Shows the commentaries below the Bible verse.
T –  Show the commentaries besides the Bible verse (see image above for an example of this).

Note that there are two very distinct things here, your quick access to BibleView functions and options, and a full access to the options involved. If you click on the wheel or cog, then you get the full access to set the BibleView Window options. If you click on the down arrow beside the wheel, you will quickly activate or deactivate (hide or show) one of these functions.




Once having activated the BibleView Window (clicking in it), then you press Control+O to get into the toggle to show this. At this point, you should see something like this.

 

Now we want to click in the left-hand window to get to inline commentaries section.




What we see here are the settings for the inline commentary. (Above to activate it by short cut keys, and here in this dialog box you click the topmost checkbox to activate or deactivate it.

You can play with these options to change the “look and feel” of the commentary, but the important point here is that in the mini-window with the listing of your installed commentaries, you can check off the ones you want to see in the inline commentaries.

Note: You see double commentaries because you have more than one installed. In my case, I have some of these commentaries in a “commentaries” folder, and some in the main “books” folder in this installation, and as such, they appear twice. Don’t let this bother you. You can delete the redundant ones if you so desire. It doesn’t hurt to leave them either.




Here I am going to check off my recommended commentaries:

Recommended Commentaries

Click link name of the commentary to go to the download page for that module. All these commentaries are free by the way.

So this (below) is something like what it looks like:

The power of theWord is seen when you set this up, and can quickly scan through a passage and see various different commentaries quickly on a given passage. theWord saves you time, gives you power. Study the image above. This is really a great, powerful tool for Bible study. You cannot underestimate how much you can do with these tools!

Conclusion

Remember, what you want to do is to get to this point extremely quickly. So once you are here, To make this into a screen layout, Go to the main TW menu, View-> Layout -> Save Current Layout – (name it)


This video goes through making a text sermon using the Commentaries inline.

Setting Bible Order theWord

When we are Setting Bible Order theWord, then we want to see the Bibles in a particular window. This will be messed up though when you jump back and forth using different Bibles. the order of Bibles will show those most recently used in the bar. When you close down theWord and open it again, it is going to revert to the set Bible order (if you set it that is). Otherwise, it is just whatever order they were in on the Bible bar when you shut down.

Setting Bible Order theWord is very easy. When you want to be Setting Bible Order theWord, follow these instructions.
