One of the biggest changes in WORDsearch 11 is the 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. It will take some getting used to, but this Quick Tip will help you navigate the basics.
When you first open WORDsearch, it will open to the Home tab. This is where you can see the latest sales and releases and also visit some helpful sites. To leave the Home tab, click the Study or Library tabs along the top of the bar in black.
The Library tab is where you find all of your books and documents. From the Library tab you can open one or multiple books, see all the books you have in different categories, manage your library, and browse your books either by book cover or in a list.
To open one book immediately, just click on the cover and you will be taken to the Study screen. If the book needs to be downloaded, you will see this image in the place of a cover:
If you would like to open multiple books without having to go back and forth from the Study and Library tabs, uncheck the box next to “Switch to Study tab after opening a book.”
Click on the hyperlinked text of the book title or the thumbnail image to open a book. The books are opening but you are staying on the Library tab when this box is unchecked. Click the Study tab to switch to it and see your open books
This is WORDsearch Study tab. The bar along the top with the words “File,” “Edit,” etc., is known as the main menu. The white bar underneath it is the main toolbar. This is where you’ll find all your study tools: Search, Verse Explorer, Topic Explorer, Cross-Reference Explorer, Bible Notes, Instant Verse Study, Verse List, Word Processor, NoteStack, LESSONmaker, Parallel Bible, etc.
