Can someone tell me how to create a text file (e.g. .doc) from a .cmtx file?

Hi Adam,
Currently there are no tools available to directly export a Commentary file to a text file. That said, there are only round about ways this can be done, and there are two possible way this can be achieved, which are:
  • Using SQLite Manager or Browser, you can export a cmtx (or any other e-Sword database) file as either a CSV, XML, or an SQL file. With the CSV and XML file, I think these can be imported into MS Word. With respect to e-Sword's official files, which are locked, I don't know if exporting these will work.
  • In e-Sword you can paste a Commentary into a Topic Note, and export that particular Topic as an rtf file. But that is the extremely long way around it.

I trust this information is helpful to you.

Blessings,

So patchworkid,

I do that and it opens/saves the "Book Comments" of a cmtx module but how do I do it with the "Verse Comments" (when I open the file only book comments appear - is there a way to view the verse comments?)

T4 works just fine. However, it opens it in this manner: Book comments (for all books), chapter comments (for all chapters) then verse comments. If it is a complete commentary, then you have to go through Revelation's book notes before getting the chapter notes on Gen 1. You have to finish the chapter notes on Rev 22 before you get to the verse notes on Gen 1:1.

I hope that makes sense.
Read "Muscle and a Shovel," the gripping and powerful true story of a one man's conversion to Christ. One Baptist preacher said that "This story provoked me on spiritual levels I didn't know existed! Everyone who reads this story should be prepared to "fight or flee" - Muscle and a Shovel is one of those rare books that will raise your blood-pressure. You'll either give it to everyone you know or put it in a shredder - there is no middle ground. This book just might turn the religious world on its ear." Available from Amazon.com here.

If it's a resource that's been created in the past year or so, I either have or probably can get the RTF file used in the original creation of the module.
