WORDsearch 11 is here! What’s new in this upgrade?
The first thing you’ll notice is a new streamlined, simplified design. All the toolbar icons have been redesigned to help you find what you are looking for more quickly. We’ve also reduced visual clutter whenever possible. If there are icons you never use, you can now hide them so that the options you use are even more obvious and easy to find.
You’ll also notice that the program now opens with 3 tabs across the top of the screen:
The Home Tab contains the “News Window” (used to be the EasyStart Screen) that gives you information on special sales and new releases.
The Library Tab is where you’ll find all the Bibles and books in your personal library. The Library Tab also gives a graphical view of your library where you can browse by cover image.
The Study Tab is the workspace where you can study with Bibles, books, and the built-in word processor. See a Quick Tip on the New Look.
LESSONmaker is a tool for creating small group lessons and Sunday school lessons rapidly. Simply type in what Bible passage or topic you want to make a lesson from, and select the lesson materials you have in your library. If you are really pressed for time, you can hit the panic button, and a lesson will be instantly created for you. These lessons can be printed for classroom handouts or can be exported to PowerPoint.
User data can now be safely backed up to the cloud. It’s not only safer and more robust, it makes synchronizing two WORDsearch installations easy.
Second Monitor Support
If you have a second monitor, you can now use it for an independently sizable workspace.
Quickly and easily organize notes from any Bible or book. Add your own notes as well as topical tags. Each NoteStack card links back to the exact place in the book the card is quoting, allowing you to go back and read the full context of a quote. Export/import abilities mean you can share some or all of your NoteStack cards with other WORDsearch users.
You can choose which buttons appear on the main toolbar.
Topic Explorer and Cross-Reference Explorer Speedup
Topic Explorer lookup is now virtually instantaneous even with extremely large libraries. Cross-Reference Explorer tested at 10 times faster than before for very large libraries, and even faster for medium-sized to smaller libraries.
A New “Open Book” button on the Toolbar
If you know what book want to open, you can do so quickly without leaving the Study Tab.
