User Modules

Overview

User modules are Book modules that can be edited.  You can create commentaries, dictionaries, general books, maps, etc.  Some of the editing features include:

Full image support
Advanced hyper linking to Bibles, topics within the module, other non-Bible modules, websites, files on the host computer, etc.
Automatic Verse Recognition
Bookmarking
Full rich text formatting.
Drag-and-drop of topics.
Simple copy and paste from Wordpad or Microsoft Word with format preservation.

User modules are identified in the Book View by the edit icon next to the module abbreviation in the tab bar .

Default User Modules

When you first install theWord, two user modules are created to help you write your own notes on verses and on topics. They are called My Verse Notes and My Subject Notes.

You can access these modules from any Book view and use them to write your own personal notes. Notice though that these two modules are identical to any other user modules you can create for yourself at any time. Actually the My Verse Notes is just a commentary, whereas the My Subject Notes is a Generic book.

Creating a New User Module

To create new user module, go to the main menu: File -> New user module...

New User Module Dialog

New User Module Dialog

In this dialog, you will need to choose the type of module that you want to create.

Commentary modules enable you to make comments on verse, verse-range, chapter, and book levels.  The comments follow the structure of the Bible's divisions, just as in a printed commentary.
Dictionary modules are general one-word, or multiple word entries, that do not have a tree structure.  This means there is only one level in the structure.
Generic book modules have a tree structure in which topics are found within other topics, etc.  There is, in reality, no difference between a dictionary and generic book structure. They are divided for organizational purposes for you. Generic book modules include all kinds of other modules: such as, charts, maps, devotionals, etc.
Map or images modules are identical to Generic book modules; the only difference is that they are marked as such so they can be grouped separately in the Book view tab bar.

TIP: To create a Reading plan you need to go to the menu File -> New Reading Plan.

In the second section, fill in the Abbreviation, which is the name that will appear in the Book View tab bar.

The Title is the full name of the module. This is also the name used as the filename of the module.

The Description gives a brief description of the module that is displayed when you hover the mouse over the tab in the tab bar.

The Path should be filled in automatically with the filename when you enter a Title. You can change the default path where the new module will be created by clicking the button at the right of Path.

Once you press OK, the module should be successfully created.  You should see the dialog below and the Book View that contains the new module should be highlighted.
