In response to user feedback, recent updates to Paratext (9.3 and following) give users the option to... read more

I recently got a new laptop with Windows 11. Producing the PDF (via XeLaTeX) always took a long time, even on a small document. Remember that we note that XeLaTeX takes longer to run the first time you run it on a new computer and whenever you add or remove fonts on your system. In this case, however, XeLaTeX always took a long time. It turns out that I needed to invoke the XMLmind XML Editor using the “Run as administrator” option. Once I did that, XeLaTeX was able to update its information... read more

11 March 2020 - SILKin
If a SILK file becomes corrupted, or if the computer crashes, it has been possible to lose a lot (or all) of the data. SILKin 2.4 creates back-up copies of SILK files every time the User saves their file. It also makes interim back-ups during a work session at intervals selected by the User. If anything goes wrong while saving or opening a SILK file, SILKin automatically reverts to the most recent back-up copy.
