Thanks. I'm glad to see BibleCS come alive again. I took some notes:
Resizing the Bible pane leaves a trail of gibberish. (on the initial
Dictionary lookup doesn't work.
Is Nestle supposed to be in Arabic?
Psalm 3 has 9 verses in OSMHB, and 8 in KJV,
but there is no matching: v. 2 is v. 2 in both,
even though they say different things.
DRC shows the Apocrypha, though I don't know anything about its v11n..
It didn't recognize my other SWORD frontend installs, or their books.
And there doesn't seem to be a way to add locations to the Local Path.
I'm on Windows 7, and it installed in Program Files (x86).
