Have you noticed anything different about WORDsearch 10 on your PC or Mac? With the release of a new update there are a few changes, some obvious, like the bright blue color and new logo on the start screen, and some that might be a little trickier to notice. Here’s what’s new in the updated program.
Start Screen and Sign-In
When you first start WORDsearch, you’ll notice a redesigned Start Screen that includes a sign in section. If you’ve previously logged into our website, you can use those same log-in credentials here. Simply enter your email address and password to sign in and register your software. If you’ve not yet created an account on our website, you can register by clicking on the Register for a WORDsearch ID link.
Enter all of the required information and any of the optional information you would like to share with us. This information will be used to help us serve you better. Click Finish, and you are now registered! Use this email and password when purchasing books online.
By signing in, we’ll be able to keep track of all of the books you own and ensure that you can access those same books across all devices.
Automatic Book Updates
WORDsearch will now automatically check for book updates when you open the program. Automatic book updates are a wonderful feature. We’re always finding things in books that need to be corrected, and sometimes authors update their books with new information that you get free in Automatic Updates.
Set the program to check for book updates as frequently or as infrequently as you’d like. To completely disable book updates, uncheck the Check for book updates box. Please note: You will not be able to check for book updates unless you have registered your WORDsearch program and are signed in.
My Library List
My Library List is a new feature to WORDsearch. If you would like to see if the books you own are available on our iOS, Android or MyStudyBible apps, you can view your Library List. Please note that we are working diligently to make all of your books available across all platforms.
To access My Library List, go to Tools, and then click My Library List.
A window will open listing all of the books you own. If a check mark appears in the app column, then it is available on that app, and you can download it on that platform. You can also search through your books by categories if you do not want to look at your entire library.
Updated Word Definition Window
If you have any dictionaries downloaded in WORDsearch, you will now see a tab called My Dictionaries. You can look up word definitions in any of your dictionaries or several websites by using the Word Definition window. To access it, right-click on the word you want to look up from the book you are reading, and choose “Definition for” from the pop-up menu, and the Word Definition window will appear on your screen opened to the definition of that word. You can also go to Tools on your toolbar and choose Word Definition, and then type in a word in the “Enter term” bar at the top of the window.
You will notice there are different tabs located in your Word Definition window. If your books do not have a definition for that particular search, they will not appear in the list. The ones that do contain a definition for the word you are searching will appear in black text. There are also tabs for websites that you can also use to read different definitions.
If your word has several different results in each book, you can click on the hyperlink of each article to see the definition. You can also click Open in a new window to see the book containing your definitions open in a new window next to your Word Definition window.
That’s what’s new with the WORDsearch 10 update. We hope these new features will assist you as you seek to preach and teach to change lives.
