Quick Tip – Bookmarks

ws11QT

Bookmarks are useful to mark locations of books that you’d like to be able to return to at a later time. Bookmarks are organized in the Bookmark section of the Library tab.

Bookmarks vs. Hyperlinks
When should you use a bookmark and when should you use a hyperlink? Both techniques create a marker that allows you to jump to a previously visited location. The difference is in how the two tools are used. Hyperlinks exist in documents or notes. So a hyperlink is the mechanism to use to create a clickable link in a document, but is only accessible when you are reading that section of the document. Bookmarks are always accessible from the Bookmark section of the Library tab. Thus bookmarks are ideal to create links that can be used outside of the context of any particular document.

Quick Tip – Strong’s Searching

ws11QT

Strong’s Numbers were prepared by Dr. James Strong and a team of scholars for over 35 years. With the numbering system tied to a particular word in English, the average lay-person can easily study the meanings of the Greek and Hebrew words. First published in 1890, this tool is still used today by pastors, scholars and laymen alike for nearly a century. They have become the standard for identifying  words linked to the original Greek and Hebrew words.

One of the great features in WORDsearch is the ability to easily access Strong’s Numbers from an open King James Bible (KJV), Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), English Standard Version (ESV), or New American Standard Bible (NASB). You also can hear the word pronounced.

Today’s Quick Tip is focused on searching for a specific Strong’s number that you might come across or already have in mind.

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.
