Hello everyone,

 

I'm using E-Sword on MacBook, and everything was working just fine. But suddenly, every time I launch E-Sword, my layout is reset to its default sizes and selections, and I have to reconfigure most of my layout (including the sizes of the windows themselves). 

 

It will also reset the Bible window back to single Bible view - I have it set as Parallel (KJV and Portuguese ACF), but it will reset back to whichever Bible is the default (in this case, KJV). 

 

It will, however, remember my commentary selection. Weird.

 

I've tried restarting my MacBook, as well as reinstalling the program 2x. 

 

If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated! God bless.

Hello MrZwitz,

 

You would need to give some more details about how you are configuring your layout and what exactly is resetting (which windows, etc.) in order to give you more help. Some of what is happening to you, perhaps, is normal behaviour.

 

For instance, as to the Bible window reseting back to single Bible view, that is the normal behaviour of e-Sword X (and I think in the Windows version as well). That is, if you quit e-Sword while still in Parallel view, when you restart it will be in single Bible view. Again, this is normal. It will always start in single Bible view. That is a behaviour of e-Sword that Rick Meyers himself would have to change.

 

Sorry I couldn't give you more help at this time.

I suppose you're right about it defaulting to single Bible view. I guess that is what it is. Wish we could just just choose our own defaults for when the program launches. I'd like for it to launch right were it was when I closed it. But I guess this would just save me 1 click, so it's alright.

 

The bigger inconvenience is that all my "windows" (Bible, Commentary, Split view - Strong's numbers) are resized back to, what I imagine to be, default. This requires me to resize them every time I launch the application.

 

I thought I'd just try minimizing the application instead of closing it out...but then, when I click on the application to bring it back, Split view with Strong's numbers disappears, and I have to cmd+w to bring it back. 

 

Just a bunch of small things that add up to a significant annoyance. It's probably a Mac thing though. Love 'em and hate 'em.

I see what you mean by split view disappearing, even when you just minimize the app and don't quit it. I tried it and it did it on me too. I can see that it would be pretty annoying. You may be right that it is a Mac thing.

 

Probably the only solution (if there is one) would be to complain about it (nicely, of course) to Rick Meyers. Perhaps he might be able and willing to fix this. You can contact him here with problems, questions, suggestions, and praise for the Mac version of e-Sword here:

Update:

 

After having updated to e-Sword X version 8.0 the other day, I find that split view will now remain after you quit and relaunch e-Sword. However, it will still disappear if you minimize the app. That fixes part of your problem, at least.
