1.   Is it possible to re-order the tabs in either Bibles or Commentaries? 

2.   Is it possible to re-name a tab, e.g., change "Expositor's Bible" to "Exp Bib"

There is a program available for download from this website called "e-Sword Tab Renamer" that will make changing the tab names easy here is the link:

There is something to be aware of as far as I can see. If you change the tab name, it will effect the accuracy of the inbuilt e-Sword down-loader. It will indicated that you don't have the module, and you won't know if there are any updates, will be a secondary issue.

Hi Jon,

That is something which has been happening to me for quite some time. That said, its not an issue to me because, I generally don't update the file unless its a new edition or something like that.

 

One of my pet hates are long winded 10 mile long tab names as they take up precious real estate space, especially if one is using a Laptop.So, in my judgement, best thing anyone can do is shorten the Tab names to being acronyms of three or four characters.

 

Blessing,

Stephen (Php 1:21)

Rick could easily address the issue... but he appears to be quite a minimalist I suppose.

In theWord and Logos, you can change the tab name without it ruining anything.

Just a thought, when I change the tab name, I also change the filename to match the tab. But if the filename remained original, I wonder if the download manager would read the file as installed. Think I might have a bit of a play around with it and see what happens. :ph34r: 

 

Blessings,

Stephen (Php 1:21).
