Importing personal notes from theWord 2

Overview

You can import all your notes that you have created with an earlier version of theWord (version 2 or earlier) from the File->Import personal notes... dialog. In previous versions, all your personal notes are stored in a single file called user.edb. Click Browse in the Import personal notes from previous version dialog to select the user.edb file to use.

How your notes are migrated to the new version

Version of theWord prior to 3 were more limited in the ability to make personal notes. The new version allows you to create and store your notes in any type of supported module  (commentary, book, etc).

When importing notes from a previous version:

Verse lists are imported as they are; no major changes exist in this area
Bible formatting (highlighting) information is imported as is, no major changes exist in this area
Footnotes of version 2 are converted to a General Book with the name My footnotes.
Book/Chapter/Verse notes of version 2 are converted to a commentary with the name My Verse Notes.
Subject notes (on various subjects) are converted to a General Book with the name My subject notes.

If any of the above categories is empty (e.g. no footnotes), then no module will be created. This dialog allows you to preview the number of notes found in the selected user.edb file: you can also choose to only import part of your personal data (by checking/unchecking the corresponding category).
