  2. Bible link as popup improvements:
    1. New preference - Show whole chapter in Bible popup.
    2. Added 'View more' link to show whole chapter for Bible popup showing only the verse range.
  3. Improved accessibility for old people:
    1. Increased the maximum text size from 300 to 500%.
    2. Added Fonts preference: Bold.

      Note that this is also useful for Hebrew text; and if you do not want the non-Hebrew to be bold, you can choose a font without bold like GentiumPlus.

  4. Added Clear abbreviation cache in Preferences under Modules management section near the bottom. The module abbreviations cache makes MySword start faster. Clear the cache if you had updated an abbreviation in an SQLite editor outside MySword. When MySword restarts, the cache will be recreated.

      1. Gn - Genesis
      2. Pslm,Psm,Pss - Psalms
      3. Ezk - Ezekiel

  6. New Bible Preferences (Premium): Show Cross-references, and Custom Cross-Reference.
  7. Format Bible verse words with bold, italic, underlined, highlight, color and box (Deluxe version).

The following bugs were fixed:

  1. Multiple chapters verse range popup in ISV displays only the first verse.
  2. Multiple words quoted search for Non-Standard search type does not highlight the result in case there are tags in the verse like italic. Introducing the Strong's, morphological tags and translators' notes links as popups in the search improvements of MySword 4.2 caused this issue.
  3. In the Dictionary word selector and Journal/Book topic selector, characters with glyphs below the baseline like letters g, p, q and y are clipped when Android is set to Large or Huge font size.
  4. Words of Jesus in Red preference (Premium) when turned off is not off in Search results and Popups.
  5. Parallel view (Premium) bug fixes:
    1. Navigating through the same chapter via history, bookmarks or verse selector does not change the current verse and scroll to it.
    2. MySword 4.2 feature allowing different fonts for main text made relayouting of paragraph badly proportioned.
  6. Export page and Notes/Journal to file (Premium) containing Latin marks are not displayed properly due to UTF-8 not being automatically detected by some browsers. Greek and Hebrew though are properly detected though.
  7. Export file name (Premium) with / will fail, e.g. CUV/C. The / should be converted to _.
  8. Search Split preview (Deluxe) Bible links are using the memorized Bible module when you search from a Compare/Parallel view.
