So, I just purchased a nice, shiny new computer, and one of the first things I installed was e-Sword and then copied over my personal e-sword folder so that all of my study notes show up.

 

However, I've run into an annoying problem: The same version on my old computer has shorthand commentary names; for example, Keil & Delitzch is "K&D" on my old computer, but is spelled out on the new one.  Thus, the Commentaries no longer fit on a line; if i use the option to force them to be on one line, they scroll.

 

Did something change?  How can I get back the shorter names? (another couple of examples: "Adam Clarke" (new) used to be just "Clarke"; TSK Cross Reference was just "TSK").

Rick Meyers has changed the tab-names to longer versions in the updates.

You can change the tab-name back with a SQLite Database Browser

https://sqlitebrowser.org/

File/open database and browse to the e-Sword map and select "all files (*)"

Then select clarke and select Browse Data and Details.

Change the Abbreviation Adam Clarke to Clark.

Then File and exit and Save

 

Be careful that you NOT change the default tap-names that are in the oldest install as the KJV and Hebrew OT(That is not the same file as HOT).

An easier way to do this is to lookup

e-Sword Tab Renamer 1.5

This will allow you to change how the tabs are displayed.  Just Ctrl + Click on the link and it will open the download location.

And on that note, I've produced a video on how to use Tab Renamer that is on this site somewhere. But so that you don't have to try to find it, here it is:

Thanks for the replies! I'll try the renamer tool soon(ish).

It isn't working; it is hardly finding any of the commentaries (I think it found one - the Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge).  So, I may have to go with the other option.

I'm trying this approach, but I cannot find the e-Sword map.  What's it called?  I'm in the standard e-Sword install directory.

 

As a matter of some curiosity, I have installed many commentaries, but I cannot find where they are being stored.

Activate e-Sword.

From the main menu, select Options -> Resource settings...

At the bottom of the Resources Options window you will see the 'Resources Location.' Note the location and go there with file explorer. Don't click the folder icon because that is for you to set the location of the resources if for some reason you moved them.

It does work, you just are not looking in the correct folder for the resources. Locate as above post and try again.

Thanks but no go - my Resources location is the standard installation location C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword, but I'm missing Bibles and Commentaries, even though they show up in e-Sword.

 

I have a sneaking suspicion that these files have been installed elsewhere -- maybe under my user profile in App Data or something.
