A new feature introduced in BibleWorks 9 is Instant Difference Highlighting.  With this feature, differences between same language display versions are automatically highlighted in the Browse Window.  As with other features in BibleWorks, display of Instant Difference Highlighting can be toggled on or off according to one's preference. If unexpected text highlighting occurs in the Browse Window (similar to that shown below) you may have translation Difference Highlighting toggled on. Click here for a video on how Difference Highlighting works.
