same Bible or text file into the reader.
4.2.1 From the website
There are many Bible translations, Bible Study Tools, devotionals, and other items available for
download and purchase on our website at http://www.olivetree.com/store/home.php?cat=259. You will
need to install a Bible or other database file and the BibleReader application itself. If you do not want
to purchase a Bible translation, there are many free versions available for download.
Once you have downloaded a Bible file (or files), install it on your device. You can install multiple Bible
translations and other items; you are only limited by the amount of available RAM on your device.

application from the main application screen on your device. Then go to Tree > Tools > Library.

Library by tapping on the acronym in the toolbar, the abbreviation for the open text.
This will open a cascading library list. Tap the category of book you want to open, and then select a
book from that list.
If there are no files in the Library, Go to Tree > Options > Preferences > Extended Memory and
make sure your memory is configured correctly correctly. More than likely, enabling /Palm/Launcher
will solve the problem.
4.3 Daily Reading
The BibleReader download comes with a Daily Reading schedule that outlines a method for you
to read through the Bible in one year. We have several other reading schedules that are also
available on our updates page, if you would like to try a different one.
As you go through the schedule, there are links to the Bible text - tap on one, and this will open the
BibleReader to that passage in the last Bible translation you had open. There are also check boxes so
you can mark off which passages you have read, and keep track of where you are in your reading.
There are two ways to access the Daily Reading Schedule:
1. Through the menu: Tree > Tools > Daily Reading
2. By tapping on the Daily Reading icon:
4.4 Desktop Modes
The BibleReader has six different desktop modes you can choose from. To change which one you
are using, go to Tree > Options > Preferences > Desktop. On this screen, there is a short description
Using the BibleReader 14
2007 Olive Tree Bible Software
for each desktop, and you can also select which one you want to use. If you choose Sicilian or Classic
you will lose the Tree icon in the upper left corner. Please use the regular menus icon in the Palm OS
toolbar or the appropriate menus key in your Qwerty keyboard to have access again to the menu items
in the Toolbar. If you want to revert to the default Desktop Mode go to Options > Preferences >

4.5 Highlighting
The BibleReader offers eight different colors that you can use to highlight the Bible text you
are reading, as well as the Bold and Underline features. There are two ways modify highlighting
colors and highlight portions of text - the toolbar and the menu.
The highlight information is stored on a per Bible basis as a Bible-xxx-High file in main memory on
your device. Deleting this file from memory will cause the highlights for that particular Bible to
disappear all at once.
The Toolbar
The bottom toolbar includes several highlighting colors and highlight erase, acting as your
customizable highlighter pallet. You can add/remove highlight colors and other options on the toolbar
by going to Tree > Options > Preferences > Secondary Toolbar.
To highlight or erase a highlight on a portion of text, simply select the text to be highlighted/erased
and tap on the corresponding highlight color or highlight erase icon on the toolbar.
Using the BibleReader 16
2007 Olive Tree Bible Software
The Menu
Set the highlighting color or feature:
Go to Tree > Options > Preferences > Highlighting. Select the color or feature you want to use (we
recommend a good contrast to the text and background colors), and then tap OK.
Highlight a portion of the text:
First select the text with your stylus. Then go to Tree > Edit > Highlight. This will highlight the text that
you had selected with the color or feature you specified under the highlighting options.
Erase a highlight from the text:
Choose the text you wish to remove the highlighting from, then go to Tree > Options > Preferences >
Highlighting and select Erase instead of a color. Tap the Highlight button again. Remember to reset
your Highlight color or feature again before you try to highlight more text, as it will still be in the Erase
setting.
4.6 Hyperlinks
Hyperlinks (underlined text) allow you to jump from the text you are in to a location in a different
database or to a new location in the current database. Tapping on a hyperlink in a window will open
another window with the text you linked to. If no text appears in the secondary reference window after
you have tapped the hyperlink, tap the secondary window to make it active and then go to Tree >
Tools > Library and load a Bible text in that window. Then retap the hyperlink in the first window. Bible
text should appear.
A number of the items offered on our website include hyperlinks. Below are a couple of examples of
different databases that use hyperlinks. For instructions on how to specify which window a link will
open in, click here.

4.8 Navigating
There are several different ways to navigate the text in the BibleReader. The five main methods are
described in this section:
Back/Forward buttons
Numbers Navigate Verses
Scrolling
Shortcuts
Verse Chooser
You can also use the five-way navigation button to navigate the search screens, preference
screens, dictionary input screen, and the main screen. This is for devices like the Tungsten models,
LifeDrive and Treos. If you want to use the 5-way navigation on the main screen, you will need to
assign a shortcut to "Toggle 5-way Nav."
4.8.1 Back/Forward Buttons
The Back and Forward can be configured to navigate the active text using several different methods.
The buttons are located on the top toolbar in the BibleReader.
The center "" button will open the verse history list, which stores your last ten locations in the
BibleReader. The left "<" button will take you back through that list, and the ">" will move you forward
through it, acting much like the backward/forward buttons in an internet browser. These buttons are
only available in the Gaeta and Lugano desktop modes.
4.8.2 Numbers Navigate Verses
Numbers Navigate Verses lets you use the graffiti shortcut area to navigate to a new chapter/verse
within the same book you are already reading in.
BibleReader 3.68 Palm Users Manual 21

4.8.3 Scrolling
There are four main ways to scroll through the BibleReader text.
1. The scroll bar. The scroll bar has three buttons on the top and bottom of the slider marked "V," "L,"
and "S." When you tap one of these they will scroll the text one Verse, Line, or Screen, respectively.
You can also drag the slider on the scroll bar to move through the entire body of text.
2. The five-way navigator or rocker/jog wheel. The preferences for this navigator can be set up
under Tree > Options > Preferences > Scrolling. Here you can set the navigator to scroll by Line/
Verse/Chapter/Book/Screen/History.
3. Tapping. Under Tree > Options > Preferences > Scrolling you can enable "Tapping" and specify
how you would like the text to scroll when you tap the top or bottom half of the screen.
4. Auto Scrolling. Click here for details.
4.8.3.1 Synchronized Scrolling
You can configure the BibleReader so that specific windows scroll together on a verse-specific
scrolling action. Here's how:
1. Go to Tree > Options > Preferences > Verse Sync.
2. Select Lead/Follow for the windows you want scroll together
Note: Synchronized scrolling will only work when you do verse specific scrolling actions. Scrolling by
line or screen will not cause the windows to scroll together.
Using the BibleReader 22
2007 Olive Tree Bible Software
4.8.3.2 Auto Scrolling
The BibleReader allows you to auto scroll, at a customizable rate, through the text you are reading.
To enable auto scrolling, go to Tree > Options > Toggle Auto Scroll. The text will
automatically start scrolling.
To decrease/increase the scroll rate, push up/down on the center five-way hardware
navigation button on your device.
To stop the auto scrolling, tap anywhere on the screen.
You can also set up a shortcut to turn auto scrolling on, under Tree > Options > Preferences >
Shortcuts - Alpha -or- Tree > Options > Preferences > Secondary Toolbar.
4.8.4 Shortcuts
The BibleReader has both alpha shortcuts and hardware shortcuts that can be customized to the
buttons or letters you would like to use.
Alpha Shortcuts - Silk Screen or Keyboard
The alpha shortcuts are shown next to the menu items that they relate to. To use them, just write the
"/" character in the "ABC" section of the silk screen, then write the letter for the shortcut. If your device
has a keyboard, you can just press the corresponding letter on the keyboard. These alpha shortcuts
can be configured under Tree > Options > Preferences > Alpha Shortcuts. Here you can add more
letters that will shortcut to different features of the BibleReader and modify existing shortcuts.

Hardware Shortcuts
There are a number of shortcuts that can be assigned to the four hardware buttons on a Palm. To view
the full list, and assign a particular shortcut to a hardware button, go to Tree > Options > Preferences
> Shortcuts.
There are also a number of shortcuts that can be assigned to the "Select" and "Record" buttons on
some Palm devices. These buttons can be assigned under Tree > Options > Preferences > More
Shortcuts.
4.8.5 Table of Contents
Several of the resources available from Olive Tree use the Table of Contents Chooser - a quick and
easy way to navigate material that has an outline-type format. To navigate material using the table of
contents, open the verse chooser. If the table of contents mode is available, there will be a checkbox
at the bottom of the verse chooser screen that says "Verse Mode." Uncheck this box, and the verse
chooser will switch to the table of contents.
Once in the table of contents, use the [+] marks to drill down through the material and locate the
specific section you are looking for. Tapping on the book icon at the bottom of the screen will
jump you to the location in the table of contents that you were last browsing in the text for the book.
4.8.6 Verse Chooser
The Verse Chooser is the primary method for navigating through versified material in the
BibleReader. You can access the Verse Chooser in two main ways.
1. Through the menu: Tree > Tools > Verse Chooser
2. On the toolbar:
BibleReader 3.68 Palm Users Manual 23

There are three modes of Verse Chooser available to choose from. See the screen shots below for the
details of each mode. The default Verse Chooser is set to "Three Tap." You can go to Tree > Tools >
Verse Chooser Options to change the Verse Chooser mode.
The Quick Tap Verse Chooser gives a separate screen for the book, chapter and verse. You can
also select to color the book names by group. Tap on the book, and up comes the chapter screen (with
the number of chapters for that book), then select the chapter and up comes the verse screen (with
the number of verses for that chapter).
The toolbar reference has also been worked into this verse chooser. Tap the current book to go to a
new book, tap the current chapter to change the chapter/verse of the current book, or tap the current
verse to change the verse for the current book/chapter.
The Single Page Verse Chooser lets you select the book, chapter, and verse of the new reference all
on the same screen.
Using the BibleReader 24
2007 Olive Tree Bible Software

To quickly navigate to a reference you were recently at, the BibleReader has a Verse History feature
available. With this feature, you can quickly access your last ten locations in the BibleReader. To see
and navigate through your current Verse History, tap the center "" button on the top toolbar:
4.9 Personal Notes
BibleReader allows the user to create their own personal annotations for a particular verse of
scripture. With the verse displayed at the top of the screen just open the Note editing screen, and
type in your note (or Copy/Paste) using the onboard keyboard. When completed tap the OK button. A
note can be a maximum of 8,000 characters.
Note: Notes are saved with the following naming scheme: note_(name). (The name should be 10
characters or less.) Every note will contain the prefix note_.

4.11 Searching/Concordance
The search command in the BibleReader acts like an exhaustive concordance. You can search
the entire Bible, or a portion of the Bible, for a specific word, phrase, or partial word. To open the
search screen, go to Tree > Tools > Search or tap the Search icon on the toolbar: . Insert the
word or phrase you want to search for, and tap Search to begin the search.
Wild Card Search
To use the wild card searching, enter the word suffix form you want to search for. Then, enter the "wild
character," a * (star) or a - (dash). Due to font issues, the * (star) does not appear with Greek and
Hebrew fonts, so a - (dash) is best to use at the end of the word(s).
Here are a few examples:
Single words: just* will find just, justify, justification, etc
Multiple words: tru* lov* with option All Words will find verses with true and love in them
Search Range
BibleReader 3.68 Palm Users Manual 29
2007 Olive Tree Bible Software
To specify the range of books that you want to search in, use the drop down list to select the desired
book range or to create your own custom range. After setting the range, tap Search to begin the
search.
Search Method
There are four different Search Methods that you can use to help narrow down a search.
1. Exact: searches for the word/phrase exactly as you have entered it.
2. Ignore Case: When selected, searches will ignore the presence or absence of capital and
lower-case letters.
3. All Words - AND: When selected, searches will use the Boolean operator and with the words listed
4. Any Word - OR: When selected, searches will use the Boolean operator or with the words listed
4.12 Split Screen Mode
With Split Screens, you can display up to three windows at the same time. Each window can be
configured and moved independently. Or, you can link windows together to synchronize the scrolling.
For example, you could display two different translations of the Bible on the same screen for
comparison. Or have one window with the text and two windows of reference or commentary.
Note: If you are using a Bible with Notes or References (such as the New American Standard Version
with Strong's Numbers, or the NIV with Publisher Notes), the default setting is that the screen below
the Bible version will be used for references.

Select the toolbar's position in the bottom drop-down box. Choose from bottom, left, or right. This is
also where you can select to disable the toolbar so it will not display.

you minimize/maximize it. With the checkbox at the bottom of this screen you can choose to enable
or disable this bar.
