"Just a word to praise your efforts on the new version 5.

It is a tremendous improvement over previous versions, especially in regard to language use.

I have three other bible software programs which I use, yours is head and shoulders above the others.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!"

How Do I Transfer My Study Notes To A Different Computer?

Determine the name of the file containing your personal study notes. 

Your Personal Study Notes are saved in the folder titled "RefWorks".  This is usually located in C:\Program Files\Biblesoft\PC Study Bible 3.0 {throughout these instructions, this "PC Study Bible 3.0" folder may be called "PC Study Bible 4", if you are running version 4}.  There may be two files associated with each Study Note, though there may only be one.  The file extensions are “J4L” or “JDR”.  "My Personal Notes" is PC Study Bible's default study note set, and is titled "default" in the RefWorks.  Any other set you created will be called whatever "Short Name" you assigned it at the time of creation. 

 

You can check this name by opening PC Study Bible, choosing Options from the main menu, and selecting Preferences.  Scroll down and click on Reference Works in the left pane.  Click on the Reference Work in right pane you would like to find the file name for.  Once you've highlighted it, click on the Attributes button just below that pane.  The first tab, titled Reference Works Information, will list the File Name near the bottom of this box.  It might be gray, and thus difficult to read.  This “File Name” gives the name of the file and the folder where it is located.

 

Q: How do I transfer version 3.2D (and older) Personal Study Note files from my old computer to my new one?

 

A: Identify the file names of your Personal Study Notes on your old computer per the instructions above.  The default is Default.JDR.

  • Install PC Study Bible to your new computer, if you haven’t already.
  • To make PCSB recognize these notes, make sure PCSB is *not* running
  • Copy Default.JDR and other Personal Study Notes files into:
    C:\Program Files\Biblesoft\PC Study Bible 3.0\RefWorks
  • Rename the file Default.J4L to Default.J4L.OLD in:
    C:\Program Files\Biblesoft\PC Study Bible 3.0\RefWorks
  • Start PCSB.
  • The notes you created in 3.1 should now be visible.
  •  Q: How do I transfer version 3.2E (and later) Personal Study Note files from my old computer to my new one?

     

    A: Identify the file names of your Personal Study Notes on your old computer per the instructions above.  The default is Default.J4L.

  • On the old computer, find the files with the type of "J4L" in the folder:
    C:\Program Files\Biblesoft\PC Study Bible 3.0\RefWorks
  • DO NOT copy the following files, if present (they are not Study Notes and will potentially cause undesired side-effects):
  • Settings.J4L
  • bstemp.J4L
  • jar.J4L
  • treasury.J4L
  • In other words, the personal study notes are in Default.J4L and other files that *you* created.  Copy these files into the following folder on the new computer:
    C:\Program Files\Biblesoft\PC Study Bible 3.0\RefWorks
  • Start PCSB.
  • The notes from your old computer should now be visible on the new computer.
  • The id number of this entry is 228.
