I have a large collection of topx files in my Windows 10 version of e=Sword. I am considering switching to Apple. Will I be able to port my topx files from Windows 10 to Apple IPad under e-Sword HD?

The topx files will need to be converted to the correct file format for use on Apple devices, topx file format is for Windows PC's, the Apple/Mac format is topi

 

The Windows and Apple/Mac versions of e-Sword use different file formats:
 

Windows file formats
 
Bible (bblx)
Commentary (cmtx)
Dictionary (dctx)
Bible Reading Plan (brpx)
Devotional (devx)
Reference (refx)
Topic (topx)
Harmony File (harx)
Maps/Graphics (mapx)
 
Apple/Mac file formats:
 
Bible (bbli)
Commentary (cmti)
Dictionary (dcti)
Bible Reading Plan (brpi).
Devotional (devi)
Reference Library (refi)
Topic File (topi)

That appears to be a converter for modules, not editor files.

It appears that if I take a Windows 10 TOPX file, and copy it into OpenOffice Text Editor, and save it as a .doc file, it preserves all the formatting, including the hotlinks.

I'm hoping that I can then take the .doc file, and copy it into the e-Sword HD editor. If it preserves all the hotlinks in the HD editor, then I'm good to go.

To add to what Jon shared, below is a list of the type of resource files the Converter handles (converts):

Bible (bblx to bbli)

Commentary (cmtx to cmti)

Devotional (devx to devi)

Dictionary (devx to devi)

Journal Notes (jnlx to jnli)

Reading Plan (plnx to plni)

Reference Book (refx to refi)

Study Notes (notx to noti)

Topic Notes (topx to topi)

 

Trust you find this helpful.

 

Blessings,

Stephen (Php 1:21).

Topx files are for use with e-Sword for Windows PC's. 

In the windows version of e-Sword there is menu across the top the e-Sword main window, just below the menu is the e-Sword search tool for searching bibles. At the right end of the search tool there are two small buttons one is an image of a picture, this will activate the e-Sword Map and Graphics viewer. To the right of that button is button that looks like 3 little books, this button opens the e-Sword reference library window this window is where you view both Topx and Refx files
