If I look up a word in any of my Bible translations will it be linked to the Complete Word Study Bible definitions?
Thanks!

Not exactly, but there's a way to get at them. The CWS words are keyed on strongs numbers, and most other translations do not have those. However, with our BYOSB (Build Your Own Study Bible) features, you can easily get to the CWS definitions from just about anywhere.

For example, say I'm reading the NIV, and I want to see what Greek word was used for a specific verse. I tap the verse number to bring up the menus (and BYOSB links). I tap [CWS] to bring up the CWS version of that verse. I find the word in the CWS, and tap on the word to get the strongs definition. It's pretty simple.

Thanks for the help. I purchased the CWS Bible and I'm having problems with it. When I click on a word in the New Testament, Beelzebub for instance in Luk 11:18 I cannot get to the Greek Lexicon or any of the comments on the word. It looks like I am only getting the Strongs definition for it. I have the CWS Bible for my Laridian Bible application and when I look the same word up I get lots of information that I am not getting with the CWS from Mantis. Any suggestions on how I can fix this?
Thanks!

We have resolved this -- Zodhiates' Complete Word Study Bible (actually 2 products, the Complete Word Study Old Testament and New Testament) is a different product than the "Complete Word Study Dictionary". That's a different product, contains different information, and is structured differently.

Are there any plans to make the CWS Dictionary available?
It appears to be far more comprehensive.

We've contacted the publisher about this, but they haven't responded yet.

Like the original poster I did not appreciate the distinction between the CWS dictionary and the CWS Bible; so I ended up being a little disappointed by the limited scope of the CWS Bible.

Hopefully they will make the dictionary available to Mantis as well.

There really is a pretty large distinction between the products. CWS is a Bible, the other is a "dictionary". CWS has full King James text with words keyed to strongs numbers, plus grammatical tags for each word, extended grammatical definitions, text notes, strongs dictionary, plus lexical aids. In that sense, it's much more comprehensive than the dictionary product.

The Complete Word Study Dictionaries, however, are more comprehensive in their word definitions, and if you're looking to do extended word studies -- they are the better tool.

Exactly.

I hope it didn't sound like I was trying to criticize Mantis; the description was completely accurate.
It was my mistake not to realize the CWS Bible and the CWS Dictionary were 2 separate resources.

However, since there are so many "theologically significant" words that are "Not Found" in the CWS Bible, I really hope the CWS Dictionary becomes available.

Just to clarify for those people who don't have the CWS -- the "not found" here means there isn't a Lexical Aid entry for these words. Every strongs definition is included, with a definition and the Greek/Hebrew, transliteration, etc. Only a certain fraction of strongs words have lexical aids, though, in the CWS. These lexical aids are found in the back of the CWS printed volumes.
