Response to our BibleWorks Crossover packages has been incredible, but we’re not done yet! We’re hard at work adding features BibleWorks users have been requesting. Here’s a sneak peek at just one of them! This is in our current beta and will be made available as a free update VERY SOON!

 

And special thanks to Michel Gilbert for letting me borrow some of his BibleWorks notes!

Thank you, Rick.  I'm looking forward to switching to Accordance with a Bibleworks Crossover package in a few weeks.  I have been trying out Accordance Lite and watching videos and am really impressed with Accordance - can't wait to use it.

 

One thing that I will miss from Bibleworks 10 is the Leningrad Codex images.  These come with Bibleworks 10 and I use them in the classroom. I know they can be purchased as a module in Accordance ($120), but I would love it if they were available as an official Crossgrade module since I already own them in Bibleworks.

 

Thank you for considering!

We have not been able to license the tagged Leningrad images from BibleWorks, so ours are just images, indexed by the text shown on each page. You can request a courtesy 30% crossgrade discount, but you won't find the same capability.

I really hope this will not be an import feature only for BW Notes, but in general for import content which allows me to scroll in parallel with the Bible and let my Notes which are now in a Word format, to show up in the Info Pane in the Commentary section.

Great function coming! Thanks,  Accordance Team!

 

(1) Does the coming "Import BibleWorks Notes" feature allow any .rtf file to be imported (that's what the BW notes are, if I understand correctly.

 

(2) Could I import two different sets of notes that would remain distinct?

 

Thanks!

I can't answer the first question, Eric, but I can the second.

 

Yes, you can import any number of different sets of notes. Just give each set a unique name. if you decide to merge them at a later date, you can do that, too.

Hi Eric and Fabian,

BW Notes files have a .bww extension, but they are .rtf files. One thing I would try is convert your .rtf extensions to .bww and try to import them into Accordance. We found out yesterday that the folder that holds .bww files has to be nested, that is, you have to have Folder A > Folder B > *.bww . You have to import Folder A to import the .bww files. That is because BW nested their .bww files that way.

It's worth a try.

Regards,

Michel

I would love to have an import also as docx and html. But please not only a .bww only solution.

Right now the importer looks for the BW folder structure to recognize which notes go with what book, chapter, and verse. I suppose you could replicate this if you’re trying to import notes from other source.

That's what I meant by the full editor. I would post a screenshot of the missing options, but I can't. I checked in Firefox too. I'm in Safari right now. I might have to restart my Mac and try again.

@Rick, That doesn't show the options - alas. I suspect but am guessing that this is due to configuration of the Accordance Announcements forum. If you see it Rick it may be because you are an employee - I don't see the options either.

 

@Michel, You may have to create a new topic under one of the other fora. I was hoping someone would post details of this so I could try it out later.

 

Thx

Back to the question of importing other .rtf files, as User Notes, be aware that the BW format has the note on each verse as a separate file. So our import will put an entire file into the first reference. I am not sure that this will be helpful for files created outside of BW.

I don't know how Rick added the hyperlinks to my Ps 1:1 note. I would have to look it up. However it is done, could hyperlinks be used to scroll with a text?
