If you are creating Commentaries for ver 12.0 of e-Sword, I believe you will
most likely need to do the following, when using the NT Tooltip Editor.
Rule #1-- You must save/create your Commentary as a .cmti formatted module.
You will continue to have the problem you describe unless you save your
Commentary module in the .cmti. If you save as a .cmtx module you will
probably see only the text and no graphics.
Rule #2-- When saving/creating your module in the .cmti format, place any
graphic images into a Table. Works best to do this in Word. I prefer using
Word 2010 or later. Don't know about Word 2007. You may create a Table with
lines being set to the color white so the lines don't show in your notes. You might
even try creating a Table with Two(2) columns and put the image in one cell in the
left column and related text in the opposite cell in the right column. You can
experiment with this in creating you own commentary notes.
Rule #3-- Not really a rule, but I prefer putting a Carriage Return before and after
each Table. Try not to mix Tables with Graphics and Text with the rest of the text
in your notes without trying this first. Like I said, not a rule but seems to work as long
as I don't try to cram too many Hi-Rez (HD) and large graphic files into my notes.
Further Ideas or Suggestions: These are my own thoughts and not set in stone.
1. Try to keep graphics to the mininum, or at least don't let you module get to big
and "loaded" with graphics like the ones mentioned above, or you will have problems
when you compile your module with the ToolTip Editor.
2. If you feel that you need a lot of maps, try using simple, plain B&W type maps.
This will cut down on the file size of the module, plus you will have less errors.
3. Check out a couple of the .cmti Commentary modules I have posted for my
Commentary Old and New Testament Restoration Commentary. The one module
for Daniel is almost 8MB in file size. It is a .cmti module. All the colorful graphics
are in the Book Notes. Haven't added any Text to the Verse/Chapter Notes.
4. Below is the Link for the above mention .cmti module. All the graphics are placed
within their own specific cells in a single column Table in the Book Notes.
Hope this information helps. One last note, try to keep the Maps, images, etc. separated
from you Verse Notes. If not, I believe you need to consider some of these ideas. You must
save the Commentary Module as a ..cmti module and not as a ..cmtx module. The .cmti
module will work on anything using e-Sword Version 11.0 or greater. Not only will they work
on the IBM-PC and Compatibles, but they will also work in the Apple Version of e-Sword.
Let me know what happens.
Take Care and may you and yours stay safe and healthy.....
