Side-by-side parallel columns in Win?
My parallel module for the Win platform only seems to display the bible versions in a verse-by-verse format (i.e. Gen1:1 ASV, ESV, KJV; Gen 1:2 ASV, ESV, KJV, etc). Is there any way to view the parallel module as divided into vertical columns instead (i.e. Gen1-ASV | Gen1-ESV | Gen1-KJV), either as synchronized with each other or as separate passages in each column? It appears that the BibleTime software is capable of something like this, but I can't figure out how to make it happen in the Win version. http://www.bibletime.info/images/screenshots/1-large.jpg

Check out the 'parallel view' at http://bibleserver.com for a good example of what I'm talking about.

Did I just miss something, or is there just no current way to do that?
Thanks,
Brian

I'm pretty sure that you're not missing something. But yes, both BibleTime and GnomeSword (which can be built to run under Windows+Cygwin) offer this sort of side-by-side display:

I don't know if BibleDesktop offers this function or not.

BibleDesktop offers side-by-side parallel columns of an "unlimited" number of Bibles (see Options to set your desired limit). As an added bonus, you can display the differences between adjacent versions.

BibleDesktop runs on Windows, too.
