Microsoft Word Add-on

Installation

Installing this Add-In for Microsoft Word is as easy as downloading and double-clicking the executable installer file:

After the installation has completed, every time you open Microsoft Word you’ll see a new menu “BibleGet I/O” with it’s own ribbon area. The icon buttons on the ribbon area allow you to set preferences for text formatting of the Bible quotes, see information about the plugin and renew data from the BibleGet server (such as supported Bible Versions, and Languages for the Books of the Bible that the BibleGet server can understand), get instructions for formulating Bible Quotes and using the Add-In, send donations or feedback. There are two ways of inserting Bible quotes into your document: by opening a dialog window where you can choose the Bible versions to quote from and type in your desired quote, or by writing the desired quote directly in your document and selecting it and clicking on the relative icon button. There are keyboard shortcuts for the icon buttons on the ribbon, when you press “ALT” you can see a hint. “ALT+q” is the shortcut for the BibleGet menu, which can then be continued for the single icon items.

      Hello Tami, what version of Word are you using?

      I’m sorry you’re having trouble. Unfortunately it is very difficult to debug MSWord addons, so I’m not sure what might be causing this issue. It kind of seems to be a hit and miss thing, I myself had some trouble for a while and then it started working again.

      I have seen that the addon does not always install correctly on 32 bit systems. On 64 bit systems it seems to install correctly but Word won’t always allow it to run. I’m hoping to get more information on what is causing this… I’m sorry it isn’t working for you.

    I cannot get it to enable in Word 2016. It is listed on the inactive add-ins list. When I check it and click OK, it does not give an error. I restart Word, but it does not show. When I check back in the add-ins list it is still inactive.
