WORDsearch is better than ever before. With WORDsearch 10 we’ve made dozens of improvements and included many of the features you’ve been asking for.
Program Options Assistant
This is like having an expert at your side helping you set up. The first time you install WS10, the Assistant will intelligently guide you, setting defaults throughout your program. It’s not mandatory (you can exit at any time), but it will make WORDsearch function exactly the way you like.
This mechanism allows you to set up a desktop template for a given activity and save it. When you open the desktop template and begin studying and opening other works, you can close it out knowing that it will return to its original state when you return to use it again. You won’t have to set it up again after you use it and mess it up. This is a huge time saver for those who have specific patterns of studying.
A new Pronounce menu option allows you to audibly pronounce over 20,000 words. Just right-click a word, and if that word is in the audio database, you can hear the word spoken.
Facebook and Twitter Enabled
WS10 makes it easy for you to share anything with the world. We’ve added Facebook and Twitter buttons that allow you to post directly to these platforms without leaving WORDsearch.
Sermon & Illustration Organizer
This new feature allows you to write or paste an illustration or sermon into the organizer, give it a title, assign a key scripture to it and apply multiple tags to it. Then you can do instant searches to find your illustrations or sermons and easily keep track of where and when each was used.
Here’s how it works! You put in a verse or range of verses. Verse Explorer will quickly work to deliver a report to you indicating the different dictionaries and commentaries you own that relate to the verse(s) you entered. For example, if the verse says, “Jesus talked with the disciples,” and you have a dictionary with an article titled “Disciples,” you’ll find it in the report given. Click on a book name and you’ll find more helpful details.
This lightning-fast feature lets you select any lemma (root word), lexeme (word form in a sentence) or parsing element (a specific tense, gender, number, etc.), search for it in relevant titles, and see results instantly. This is sure to be a helpful tool for those immersed in Greek manuscripts.
IMPORTANT: The Morph Explorer requires the Greek Morphology Bundle If you have previously purchased the Greek Interlinear, HCSB Reverse Interlinear or Friberg’s Analytical Greek NT, then call us at (800) 888-9898 to get a free download of the Greek Morphology Bundle.
Most Recently Used Book List
Frequently, as we’re doing a study, we end up opening and closing our most heavily used “go to” set of books. This handy tool allows you instant access to reopen your most recently used books.
Now you can set up Bible reading schedules that include morning and evening readings. It also allows you to change reading days without having to scrap your entire plan and start over.
User Font Override
WORDsearch already allows you to make book text larger, but WS10 enables you to specify a font family too. For example, if you find Tahoma a more readable font, simply specify this in your settings and all books will use Tahoma throughout.
With the addition of QuickVerse to our software family, we’ve imported functions in the QuickVerse program that we knew WORDsearch users would love.
The New INFO Panel
One of the most loved features of WORDsearch is how your Bible verses pop up when you hover over a link. The Info panel makes that function even better with a new pane on the right side of your screen. Hover on a link and the Info panel displays that Bible text in the translation of your choosing. This means you can now easily copy and paste this text. You can put the Info panel away any time with a handy button at the bottom of your screen that toggles the panel on and off. When it’s off, the pop-up scriptures work the same as they always have.
Ideal for group Bible studies, workbooks present questions and quizzes that facilitate discussion and learning. In WORDsearch 10, you can now type in your answers and save them. You can also print out your questions for group study, or choose to print just the questions and answers that have been answered.
User Books is a new function that helps you to make your own books that you can save within your WORDsearch library. Each book you create gives you the option to set up by verse, like a commentary; by words, like a dictionary; or, by date, like a journal or devotional. You can also organize your table of contents as a flat list or like a tree.
