Basics of project/resource (0.2.1b)

Paratext allows you to view several projects or resources at the same time.

Each project or resource is shown in a window, with its own title bar and menu. Projects can be editable but resources are never editable.

To open a project or resource

  • Click the main Paratext menu ≡, and then click Open.
    The Open Project/Resource dialog box appears.

Filter or search for the files you want

  • The row of buttons along the top allows you to filter which types of files you see displayed in the list below.
  • Alternatively, you can use the search box to find the file you need to open.

To open a file

  1. Click the filename in the list
  2. Choose the type of window to open as (panel, tab, floating window, etc)
  3. Click OK.
    • A new window opens.

When you start Paratext it will re-open the projects and resources you had open when you last closed Paratext. It also places your cursor in the verse where you last had your cursor.
