I've tried to add graphics to a commentary I'm working on and they don't show up. More than that, only the text after a graphic shows up. All text before a graphic also doesn't show up.

To test, I tried adding a graphic to a dicx - same thing.

 

Everything is working for topx.

 

I also am finding that bookmarks fail in cmtx as well. Both as footnotes and as URL references.

 

I'm using MS Word 2007.

 

I'd really like some help with this. Ask any questions you think will help.

Topic modules and Map/Graphics modules are the only two module types that support graphics as for the bookmarks and links I am not sure but please read on 

I suggest that you download the module creation tool called e-Sword Tooltip NT which is the tool used to create all modules for use with e-Sword. Tooltip NT comes with a very complete users manual that can answer most any question. This includes the proper method for creating bookmarks 

Here is the link to download e-Sword Tooltip NT:

This message is for Ron Bingham and whoever is interest in this replay to Ron.

 

Ron,

 

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.....

Ron,

 

Forgot to tell you in my reply.

 

The link for the file I sent you==>  Please allow a few seconds for

the Graphics to load.  All the maps and charts are in full-color

high Resolution colors.  They are all in one Table in the Book Notes

for this module.  I can post the .rtf file for this if you want to take a

look at the source text.  In the module I posted you will see all the

graphics, but I did not make the lines in the Table invisible.

 

One last thought.  If you want to create a verse note for a text and

add a map or chart.  Take for instance Acts 2:38, try creating a verse

note with just the text  and a second verse note for the same Acts 2:38

reference which contains just the Map or chart.  Although I still think

it works best to put the graphics/images in a table...
