Channel Version Published

Paratext 9.0

Paratext 9.0 snapped. We recommended using Paratext Lite, but this snap exists for those who need to use Paratext 9.0. Known issues: Shows the localization lanauge picker on each startup. After installing and entering registration details, Paratext can exit, (and show SantaFe message in terminal), to fix restart Paratext while holding down the "SHIFT" key until you see the "Do you wish to reset all your Paratext settings?" message. Click "Yes" to fix the SantaFe problem.
