ScripturePad is an integrated editor that allows the user to prepare lessons, sermons, or study notes from within Bible Analyzer. ScripturePad has the ability to open, save, and print .xml files (also .rtf files) and can receive exported verses or text selections from the right-click menu.

The first Tab of the Results Panel is always the ScripturePad and is titled S-Pad. It cannot be deleted like the other Results Panel Tabs.

When Bible Analyzer is first started, an initial screen will be displayed showing the current date and a notable quote. Press Ctrl+N (or use the ScripturePad Toolbar/Menu item) to clear the ScripturePad display.


ScripturePad can open and save .html, .txt files. Saving in the HTML format is default and will retain text formatting. To open a saved file select Open File in the ScripturePad Menu or hit Ctrl+O. To save select Save File in the menu, click the Save Button on the ScripturePad toolbar, or hit Ctrl+S.

ScripturePad can open the older XML documents (v5.4 and older), but they must be saved as HTML in v5.5 and above to retain formatting.

ScripturePad can print to any installed printer by selecting Print from the ScripturePad Menu. Print Preview is also available in the Menu.

A pencil icon will show up in the Tab of ScripturePad if it has unsaved data.

The first Button in the Toolbar opens the ScripturePad Menu which contains all the editor's formatting tools.


Text formatting tools such as bold, italic, font style, alignment, lists, indention, etc. are available from the Toolbar, the ScripturePad Menu (the down arrow in the Toolbar), and some in the Right-Click context menu.

ScripturePad will support text background highlighting and live verse references. To highlight select the desired text and hit the Highlight button in the toolbar. The highlight color can be changed in the ScripturePad Menu.


To make all references on a page live, click the Link all References in Page Button. It will attempt to make links of all references on the page. Ctrl+Click the button to remove links.

The Create Link Button will make a custom link to many Bible Analyzer modules of any selected text. To use,

·    Select a range of text
·    Click the Create Link Button
·    Enter the link string in one of the following formats

For a Bible ref,
bible://Joh 3.16 or bible://tab/Joh 3.16
ex. bible://Rom 4.5 or bible://AV/Rom 4.5

The Bible reference book name abbreviation must match the Bible Tree abbreviations, i.e. Gen, Exo, ... Mat, Mar, ... Rev, etc.

For a dictionary topic,
ex. dict://strongex/g25

For a commentary topic,
ex. comm://ovc/jam_5.20

For a book chapter,
ex. book://more than forgiven/justification

"Tab" must be the actual tab name of the title.
The topic/chapter must be the exact text of each.

All links will provide a popup preview on mouseover except the book:// links.

ScripturePad on Start

There is an option Preferences to display the last saved ScripturePad .xml file on start. This will over ride the quote and image options.

Right-Click Menu Export

Bible verses, verse ranges, and text selections can be directly exported from the other panels and windows into ScripturePad through a Right-Click Menu.

Exported verses or selections are also copied to the clipboard.

Quick Export

Bible Verses can be exported and formatted very quickly to ScripturePad with a single keystroke. Simply select a range of verses with the mouse and then hit the Insert key (Alt+I on Mac). The verses will be formatted according to the settings in Preferences and exported to ScripturePad.

It is not important where in the initial and ending verse the selection starts and ends, the entire verse will be exported.
