#28499 What's Still Broken As Of e-Sword 11.06?

Posted by journey on 06 August 2016 - 01:38 AM

I thought it would be good to start a list of things known to still need work on the next e-Sword release. Please try to avoid things like user errors, and be as specific as you can. Example: permission problems installing e-Sword are not an e-Sword error. I'm hoping this thread will help Rick address real errors in e-Sword.

#12948 N.T. Wright's "the Kingdom New Testament" or "The New Testame...

Posted by BaptizedBeliever on 08 October 2012 - 12:31 PM

I have contacted N.T. Wright (who has been called by some the foremost Biblical scholar in the world), and asked permission to convert his translation (released last year) to e-Sword format and share it here.

Here is his response:

Dear Mr Cobb
Thank you for this. I will consult the publishers and let you know.
Warm good wishes
Tom Wright

#26730 Need help creating e-sword Bible module using tool tip NT that can be convert...

Posted by Amrhone on 07 January 2016 - 02:43 PM

Hi I'm attempting to make an e-sword module using tool tip that I can then convert to a mysword module. I have been able to get my created module to work on e-sword fine but I haven't been able to convert the module to Mysword format via any methods that I've found so far because it appears tool tip creates an encrypted file which cannot be converted. Does anyone have a solution for this issue? If so I'd greatly appreciate the help!

#29201 Hebrew New Testament with Strong's numbers

Posted by Ken Reed on 18 October 2016 - 09:24 AM

I am wondering if there are any programmers out there that have coded the Hebrew New Testament with Strong's numbers? It would be a great tool for studying the paradigms of the Hebrew words. Thanks!

#31011 Combing esword Journal and Topic content between two computers

Posted by Dergyb on 12 July 2017 - 12:41 AM

Hi esword friends


This above question may have already been asked?? Although maybe just in a different way than maybe I have asked. Cant find anything under topics search as a result... 


Any way, the situation I have is that I have esword on two computers which both have precious  journal and topics note content on one computer and different precious similar content on the other. Using one computer is best practice I'm certain of this now although this situation has developed over a long period of time and in the shadow of great ignorance...:-)


I want to combine all the information on the two computers without losing anything. Apart from copying and pasting or some other laborious means like this may be someone has found an easier and quicker way to combine all content


Any thoughts or ways others have successfully achieved this?


Would really appreciated any help!


Thanks all

#16049 Is there an Android version or not?

Posted by joyandme on 01 March 2013 - 06:16 PM

I would be willing to pay for an Android version of eSword for my Samsung Galaxy 8.9 tablet. I have tried so many Bible apps including MySword and still like eSword the best.  I want to be able to have access to my Bible app offline because at Bible study, camp, etc. wifi isn't available.


Is there an Android version of eSword or not?  if so, where can I get it?  I was afraid to go to iTunes and buy the HD version because that's for iPad and was afraid it might not work on Android.  If an Android version is not available yet, when will it be?

#2260 Forum Rules - Please Read Before Posting.

Posted by Josh Bond on 23 September 2011 - 12:39 PM

The following rules were written to ensure the forum runs smoothly and everyone feels welcome.

I had not run a forum of this size prior to BibleSupport.com. Now that I have, I see we need Forum Rules. These rules apply to everyone, including my team of moderators and especially myself. If any of these rules need clarification, or if I have disallowed legitimate behavior, please private message me.

You can expect fast answers to your questions and helpful support with a warm and Christian attitude—you should also respect these same principles.

This is not a democratic forum. We will enforce the following rules:

1. Be respectful. Disrespect of any sort is not acceptable, especially in a Christian forum. This especially applies to the treatment of new members. Even direct answers should remain respectful. Disrespect will not be tolerated.

Excuse: "Misunderstandings happen because of the nature of online communication, where you cannot hear the other person's tone and see their facial expressions".

Yes, that is true, but companies around the world manage to provide worldclass support to their customers every day with very few of these misunderstandings. Therefore, comments my moderating team and/or I, in our sole discretion, interpret as rude, disrespectful, or just too direct may be edited for content with a note left explaining the moderator action. Or the comments may be removed entirely. If you need to use emoticons to show your tone or facial expression, then do so.

2. Do not post off-topic. This wastes space in the forum and makes reading the posts more time-consuming. If your subject matter differs from an existing topic, please start your own topic. You can post your own topic by finding the appropriate forum and clicking "Start New Topic". By posting your own topic, you're more likely to receive an answer.

3. Keep thread titles descriptive and specific. Ambiguous thread titles make the forum difficult to navigate. Thread titles such as “I need help!!” or “I’m a newbie” are examples of such titles: they do not describe your problem or question.

4. Do not debate doctrinal issues except in the Theology Discussion Forums. The support forums are for e-Sword and MySword users to learn more about e-Sword and Mysword—it is not here to discuss doctrinal persuasions. You can ask about a resource's doctrine if you need assistance. You can ask what resources discuss a doctrinal viewpoint. You cannot debate or discuss the perceived accuracy of any given doctrinal viewpont. Please discuss them in Theology Discussion Forums. The moderators solely reserve the right to make necessary doctrinally related comments in the support forums.

5. Do not engage in name-calling. This type of posting will not be tolerated. See Number 1 above.

6. Do not shout. SHOUTING (for example) is considered rude. Please utilize bold, underline, or italics to emphasize a point. Please remember to turn off your Caps Lock.

7. Use only one or two exclamation points or question marks. There is no need for ending a sentence like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

10. Do not use curse or slang words or their ASCII substitutes. It is sad that this must be even mentioned. Breaking this rule will not be tolerated, and may result in you being banned.

11. Do not link to or attempt to distribute copyrighted material. Copyrights must be respected. Before linking to or making any material available in the forum, ensure that it is either in the public domain or you have legitimate permission from the copyright holder to distribute the material.

12. Do not debate legal issues. e-Sword is not a litigious community. Very few, if any of us, are real attorneys. None of us speak for e-Sword or MySword. Refrain from discussions that excessively discuss litigation. Refrain from speculation about what may prompt litigation. We do not need armchair lawyers debating legal issues on a Christian website. If an intellectual property owner wants to speak about a perceived wrong, they can message me privately, post publicly here, or use the EULA of their software program.

The exception is Copyright issues. Some new members may not understand Copyright Law. You may correct someone who does not realize that copyright law restricts the movement of text not in the public domain.

13. Take arguing "behind closed doors". Excessive public arguing will not be tolerated. For one, this usually deginerates into violations  of other rules. Secondly, this reflects poorly on e-Sword, MySword, and BibleSupport.com. If you have a prolonged disagreement with someone, use email or private message them.

14. Avoid speculation about what e-Sword/MySword permits. Other than clear copyright violations, avoid speculation about what the owners of e-Sword/MySword permit or forbid. For example, something that happened 5 years ago and you believe could happen again is now in the realm of speculation. What someone may or may not decide to do is in the realm of speculation. You do not need to speculate. Those who actually do speak for e-Sword and MySword may do so here in our forums, through their EULA, and/or on their own websites.

15. Do not intentionally make duplicate posts. Avoid posting the same content more than one time. If your post was overlooked, you can "bump" the post back to the top of the forum summary by replying to your own thread. Duplicate threads create confusion.

16. Do not ask for, upload, or post previous versions of e-Sword. New versions of e-Sword are created for a reason—they're better. Attempting to stay with a previous, unsupported version is not a well conceived, long term solution. If you face technical issues, feel free to post questions. This way, you can use a modern version of e-Sword.

#30965 New User, Premium Bible's Question

Posted by JeremyMorris on 03 July 2017 - 08:02 AM

Hey, I was just told about e-sword by a friend and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! This is an amazing free program and I am very thankful for it. I don't want to come across as negative in any way, but I'm curious why adding individual translations cost about $20/each when they are freely available on other online resources like biblegateway, blueletterbible, etc.

This seems like a very expensive way to build your software study library :(

Thanks in advance for any help! 

Happy to be here!

#31175 Question about Downloading Categories

Posted by Bibleman1984 on 06 August 2017 - 10:35 AM



 I was curious as to what is the difference between the E-Sword Categories, My Sword Categories, and Bookshelves. Do they all overlap but are just different ways to categorize? I was wanting to download as many as I can but didn't want to go through this process 3 different times if that is what I would be doing. I see too that there is a Premium E-sword which I suppose is for modules that must be purchased. Any help appreciated. Thank you.

I just noticed the following display in K & D while reading commentary on Is. 55.  Either it has always looked like this and I am slow to notice it or it is a new issue.  Can anyone comment?  I am running the latest update of e-sword hd.IMG_1547.PNG IMG_1547.PNG

#31182 version 11 Hebrew & MS Word XP & 2000

Posted by anh Mike on 06 August 2017 - 04:41 PM

When I cut and paste Hebrew from Version 11 into MS Word XP or 2000 it will not copy neatly and messes up the sentence.  So I uninstalled and went back to 10 which I cut and paste Hebrew it is nice and neat.  Therefore version 11 is not compatible with earlier MS Word programs.  Should i e-mail Rick Meyers about this?

#30992 Italics not printing clear

Posted by Dennis Hagans on 08 July 2017 - 08:46 PM

Hey, Guys, I am trying to print out a few verses but when I get the printed page the italics are so light they are barely legible.


I am using e-sword 7.10 as I have so many modules for it.


anyway, I just got a new Epson ET-2650 printer and a large part of the printing I intended to do was Bible verses copied and pasted into word pad on windows 8.1


Any help would be much appreciated.
