Class Objective: This class explains the TheWord options for using the program when you have eyesight problems.
Many legally blind people who can still see some are using computers as they can to study the Bible. TheWord has a few options that make using it easier for these people. Continue reading Visually Impaired Users
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. I do this a lot myself (I am a missionary and Pastor), and as such, I had made Microsoft Word macros to reformat inserted Bible text before. I got rid of the Microsoft Word macro, and started tweaking TW’s inserts so that they would look like what I want.
Dictionary Lookup Popup. When you setup this feature of the word, you can quickly lookup the definition of a Bible word in various commentaries completely AUTOMATICALLY with just passing the mouse over the word in a Bible.
Note that TheWord will put as many or as few Bible Dictionaries (optionally any module will work) into the mix to search, and when the popup shows, YOU HOLD DOWN SHIFT and click in the popup window, and you can then scroll down the window to see the different dictionary definitions.
This Bible Dictionary feature is extremely powerful and useful, and you can use it to quickly (almost instantaneously) see many definitions of a word. See below at the bottom of this post for more uses of this feature.
(Note that in the illustrations below, I am highlighting the word I am mousing over in the image so you will see where my mouse is, but in TheWord, the word stays the same color.)
How do I remove so many Bible Versions from the Bible Version Selector Bar without uninstalling them?
There are two solutions to this problem:
1) Permanently remove the Bible version from TheWord.
You can do this by closing down completely (exiting) the program. But before you do, make sure you know where the particular Bible version is located by checking its install folders.
Next shut down TheWord and go to that folder and move the Bibles out of theWord folders to another storage place somewhere else on your computer. This is a simple Windows Explorer activity to move a file.
2) Temporarily hide the unwanted Bible version(s) from TheWord.
To temporarily hide unwanted Bible version(s) in the Bible Version Selector Bar, go to the Main Menu of TheWord, then Preferences, then click on the “Bible Texts” tab at the top. You should see this screen (different Bible versions of course).
Notice the checkboxes on the left-hand side of this screen (before the Bible version abbreviation). Simply uncheck the ones you do not want to see in the bar. If you later want to see them (you have to remember that you have it installed) then come back here and check it again.
