quick_tips_fb

This is a Quick Tip for myWSB.

Using myWSB is a little different than the desktop version of WORDsearch. On myWSB, the Reader is where all open content is displayed. It is also where the Word Study Tool is located.

When a resource or book is opened, it will open in a new Pane in the reader. To learn how to open resources from the Library page click here.

Once a resource is open in the reader, various settings and tools are available in the UI (User Interface) Ribbon of the resource pane.

Note: Some settings and tools are not available in all resources.

Depending on the resource(s) being viewed, the UI Ribbons will appear in the reader differently. Here are some examples: (Note: The name in the upper left corner of the *UI Ribbon shown may differ on all examples.)

  1. there are no page numbers on my pages and even if I click on the forward/back arrows 40 times, I still do not see any page numbers showing on ebook within my open contents.

    • Hi Patrick, we are going back and fixing some of the old titles that don’t have page numbers, but it might be a little bit. So sorry for the inconvenience!
