Don't like a current tab name (abbreviation) for a Bible, commentary, dictionary, devotional, etc? Something taking too much space?

This program lets you change the tab name without any technical knowledge! You can also change the tab name description visible when you hover the mouse over the tab abbreviation in e-Sword.

Technically challenged? No problem! Use this self installing application.

Works on all e-Sword PC 9-11 resources and Apple modules. Also works on official resources.

  • Click "Open module" and browse to the module (*.bblx, *.cmtx, *.dctx, *.mapx, *.harx, ...)
  • The current description and tab names will be displayed.
  • Change them to whatever you want and click "Update"
  • Close the app.
Do not use the same tab names as the official e-Sword resources. For example, you cannot name a Bible resource "NIV". e-Sword will not display your Bible resource because that tab name is reserved for official e-Sword resources.

What's New in Version 1.5 (See full changelog)

  • September 9, 2016: Minor bug fixes
  • September 2, 2016: No coding changes. I added a code signing certificate to both the installer exe and the tab renamer exe to avoid most virus/malware warnings. This identifies the program as being from "Bible Support".
  • August 2016:
  • Reset the creation date of the file listing.
  • Fixed the issue with admin/elevated rights.
  • Added support for Apple modules.
  • All 9-11/Apple modules, even official resources, can now be changed.

Tried to renamee some cmtx and dctx files in e-sword 12.01 and had no joy. Think you can work your magic fingers again Josh?

The e-Sword Tab Renamer version 1.5 from http://www.biblesupp...rd-tab-renamer/ downloads the file named eSwordTabRenamer.exe However, this does not ask me where the e-Sword folder is located, when I have re-located all the contents of the ...\e-Sword folder onto another drive. Is there a preferred drive and folder where this should be located in Windows 10 version 1909? How does the System.Data.SQLite.dll know where to obtain the ...\e-Sword folder contents?
This creates the file named: eSword Tab Renamer.exe 
Is there a preferred drive and folder where this should be located?
Details: eSword Tab Renamer.exe date modified 2016/09/08 21:33 and SQLite.Interop.dll date modified 2016/06/22 20:54 and System.Data.SQLite.cll date modified 2016/06/22 20:54. This does not ask me to identify where the location of my ...\e-Sword folder is, and thus does not get access to all my latest downloaded current e-Sword files, when I browse to the location of my ...\e-Sword folder. How do I help the database know where the latest ...\e-Sword folder contents are? Is there some other database it is needing to access?
My PC is running Windows edition: Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, installed on 2019/07/29. This review dated 2020-March-23.
