At first glance, there is not much that is different in the main working windows. So if you are comfortable using Paratext 7.5, you should have a smooth transition to 8. A number of the new features are optional to use and you don’t need to dive right in. However we would encourage you to use the help file and to get training for Paratext 8 so that you can work more efficiently. We hope to provide an online training program for Paratext 8. When it is ready, it will be available on the Help page.
