General Concepts


theWord utilizes windows, called Views, as it basic structure and layout.  Views are rectangular areas within theWord's main window that are dedicated to a particular function.  There are five separate views in theWord.  They are:

Bible View
Bible Search View
Book View
Book Search View
Bible Tree

theWord allows you to create more than one Views of each type (with the exception of the Bible Tree view). As you learn to use the program, you will find this ability very useful. You can use layouts to save and restore a specific arrangement of views, and their settings.

Views are automatically organized in theWord's main window.  Any of the Views can also be detached from the main window, making the View float.  Otherwise, the Views are docked to theWord's main window.  Each of the Views is color coded, with the colors appearing in the window buttons, title bars, etc., as follows:

Bible View - blue
Bible Search View - green
Book View - orange
Book Search View - purple
Bible Tree - yellow

Each View displays particular type of information.  For instance, the Bible view displays (obviously) the text and related options of Bible modules: this information is organized into tabs (or buttons).  In the Bible and Book Views, these tabs represent each individual Bible or module.  This is essentially the visible library.  Each view has a specific menu (called View Menu) for its layout and placement.  This is found at the top left of each view, (the little arrow).

Each View can be maximized, restored, or closed.  This is done via the buttons at the top right of each View.

As you will learn later, these Views can be organized, positioned, restored, and manipulated very easily within theWord.  You can find more information in the Views section of the help file.
