Oh thanks for the answer! And that's great news!
I had a look at the Beta version and it looks good. I can't actually see any difference, but I'm sure it's packed full of improvements "under the hood". (I don't suppose you could list any of the major new features?)
I totally understand about life and things getting in the way… I was planning to publish an important book 5 years ago, but I've been ill over the last few years, so the release of my book has dragged on and on, and since then it's been expanded into a series of 5 books! I keep hoping to publish them soon (I will also release free modules for TheWord
So I understand how these things can get delayed!
, I would like to make a feature request. I've been using TheWord for nearly 10 years now and love it. (I had previously used eSword, but thank God I met someone who recommended TheWord to me! It is so much better!)
After all these years, the program still does everything I need it to and I don't have any real problems with it. There is only one feature request that I would really, really appreciate you implementing, if it is at all possible, or anything like it…
My problem is that I have a very large number of Bibles - so many that they take up the top third of the Bible View window! (But I do need access to them all.) It would be so helpful if the Bible View had something similar to what the Book View has. I mean being able to click in the top left corner and select either "All modules", or narrow it down to show just one specific category.
I know that Bible modules don't have built-in categories, but I'd like to be able to assign my own custom tags to my installed Bible modules. For example, categories like "English", "Greek", "Literal", "Dynamic", "20th Century", "Favorites", "Tyndale Bibles" etc. Perhaps the same might also be possible for book modules too (eg. "Textual studies", "Apologetics" etc) Though this is far less important to me than getting my Bible modules organized.
Another (far less important) feature suggestion would be the ability to compare Bible modules by simply Shift-clicking multiple Bible modules. So, say you're viewing KJV, you hold down shift and click on ESV, and INSTANTLY the view changes to compare these two texts. If you shift-click a third Bible, the screen splits again. Shift-click one of the already selected Bibles, and it immediately disappears from the comparison.
I think this would make it so much quicker and easier to make comparisons between various different Bibles, instead of having to go into the Compare List editor every time. It would also feel really satisfying to use!
While I'm here, may I say that I'm a designer and if you need any graphics at all I'd be happy to freely contribute.
I am also skilled in interactive GUI design, so if you would be interested in someone looking over the GUI and making suggestions for improvements, I would be very happy to do that. Though I'm sure you're probably busy enough without yet more changes! As far as I'm concerned, the only major change I really would like is a way to organize my Bible modules into groups!
