Hello. I am trying to find a way to synchronize the files found in My Documents/e-sword (bookmarks, journal, markup, study, topic) in my Drop Box so they will be available across multiple computers. Using this article, I managed to get my Bibles, commentaries, etc., synced but have yet to find a way to sync these other files. It would almost seem like there would need to be a way to point E-Sword to look in another folder for these. I may be missing something obvious. I'm fairly certain it would work if I told Windows to relocate the My Documents folder to the Drop Box, but I'd rather not do that if possible.

Any ideas?

Currently e-Sword won't automatically look anywhere else but my documents\e-sword for Notes files. You can manually open a Notes file form a different location but e-Sword won't automatically look there the next time.

If you're familiar with the Windows registry, you can point e-Sword to a different location for bookmarks, overlay files, Prayer List, etc. The registry path is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\VB and VBA Program Settings\e-Sword\Settings\

Again, you want to be really familiar with what you're doing before attempting to change the Windows registry.

Thanks for the reply. That would definitely be an option. I haven't started using any of the note functions as of yet (because of the fact I can't sync them) but if I end up using them a lot and opening the files manually becomes a problem, then I will try this fix. Thanks again.

Hi,

One solution would be to use Symbolic Links in your "My Documents\e-Sword" Folder.

See this article on how to create symbolic links: http://www.howtogeek...ndows-or-linux/
Or Google: "symbolic links windows 7"

Symbolic Links is a concept I'm not familiar with, but I'm glad you mentioned it. After reading the How To Geek article, I believe that may do just the thing. I'll try it later this evening or tomorrow and let you know how it turned out. Thanks!

Symbolic linking will do the trick! Thanks!
