BibleWorks7 Graphical Search Engine and More!

In an earlier post, I showed how to use the Graphical Search Engine (GSE) in BW7 in conjunction with the Louw-Nida domains to conduct a search. In response to that post, someone asked whether it were possible to not only search for all the words in a domain, but specifically to find all those instances where words in that domain occur in the imperative mood. It can be done! It takes a little extra work, but it is a good opportunity to see how to use the Word List Manager (WLM) in connection with the GSE. Click on the graphic below to open a 5Mb WMV file. The video is less than 3 minutes long. One thing I don't note on the video is that it is possible to edit the list of words generated by the LN domain in the WLM before applying morphological coding and saving.

  1. Thanks so much for doing this. I've tried doing that many times and its never worked properly. I still don't know what I was doing wrong before, but at least now I was able to copy your video step by step, and learn the correct way to do it.
