This is a basic Quick Tip, but one that can really help you out if you want to remove or restore a book in your library. This is especially helpful if some of your books have become locked and you know you are not going to purchase them in the future. Removing these books can organize your library and open up space on your hard drive. Removing locked books can help you clear out your library at certain times when you know you won’t use the book or are finished with it, and you can always restore these books later on when you want to use them and see them back on your shelf.
Sometimes books are updated or fixed. To get the latest version of your book, you will need to check for book updates. You can see what books have been updated and why here. WORDsearch will automatically check for book updates when you open the program. You can change how often the automatic update checks happen or disable them in Internet Settings.
The Sermon & Illustration window is a powerful tool that allows you to collect, edit, and quickly find your sermons and sermon illustrations. This helps you create searchable sermons while having your Bible and books open, all on the same desktop. You can also add keywords that help you find your sermon later, so you can see what topics you have written or preached about before.
One of the steps in our Guest Post this week, 8 Steps to Better Bible Study, was to make notes in the Bible Notes window in WORDsearch. To go along with that step, in this week’s Quick Tip we are going to take a closer look at the Bible Notes window – what the different
The Bible Notes window is your archive for notes that you want to be permanently associated with Bible verses. In other words, if you are studying Genesis 1:1, and want to remember something specific to that verse only, you can save a note in the Bible window. That way, anytime you come back to Genesis 1:1, you will see the note that you made.
Have you ever opened a book in WORDsearch and seen the weird orange asterisk looking icon on the toolbar? If your book has that icon, you should be excited! This means that your book has special features. Commentaries and study Bibles are the most common books that include special features, but other books can have them as well. So always be on the lookout for that icon when opening a book.
Special features in WORDsearch is a catch-all term for groups of items that a reader might take particular interest in. Examples include maps, charts, timelines, and photographs.
As we get ready to start 2015, most of us set goals and try to start new habits (or kick bad ones for good!). A common goal for believers is to read more of the Bible, and the Bible Reading Planner inside of WORDsearch can help you do this. Staying organized can keep you motivated and excited to read the Word every day.
The Bible Reading Planner allows you to create a customized calendar that will enable you to systematically read through the Bible (or a portion of the Bible) at a pace comfortable for you. The Bible Reading Planner tracks your progress using color codes indicating assigned, completed and uncompleted readings.
