With the way Rick Meyers has made major improvements with e-Sword, he made a major changes to the Dictionary and Commentary Windows, and Dictionary and Commentary modules. The changes he made for the Commentary and Dictionary resources and windows is giving them the capability to handle and view graphics (images/pictures).

When we saw the changes he made to the editors, and also adding in the Reference Library viewer, I guess some would have thought the had stopped with all of these huge upgrades, but that was not the case. These capabilities which Rick Meyers put into e-Sword, has brought the program up to a level where one can read these resources in the same way one reads from a hardcopy. And that makes it a far more enjoyable experience for the User.

I remember during the period of the 7x and 8x versions of e-Sword (and possibly going back as far as the 5x versions), of users wanting to have graphics added into dictionaries and commentaries. Now having these additions, made available, far more information can be added to these modules including graphical graphs containing statistical data (information) can be shown.

With the addition of being able to view these images, both Dictionary and Commentary modules can have more complex information added to it. One such 3rd Party dictionary module comes to mind that would really benefit, is the Ancient Hebrew Bible Lexington, which currently has separate pdf files containing images of ancient Hebrew text, including images of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Currently there are two premium modules available for e-Sword which includes images, and they are:
  • Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Commentary from eStudySource
  • Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Dictionary also from eStudySource.
I tend to think will be more to come, and this makes it all the more exciting for us.

Another thing to watch out for is Brent Hildebrand's T4, as I believe he's going to add the capability for being able to place in images for Dictionary and Commentary modules (if he hasn't already done so). And if that is the case, I can see Josh and other resource developers drooling at the mouth :lol:

For us e-Sword users, there are exciting times ahead as Rick Meyers continues his improvements to this program. I believe there are going to be updated and new additions and capabilities made to program without taking away the simplicity and ease of use which we enjoy.

do you think that Ray's Sqlite Regexes 1.8 will insert images to modules?

Hi Niobi,

No, it doesn't, unless you paste the rtf code of an image.

It can be implemented, but I don't know how good the performance would be.
Is there any need for that?

Hi Niobe,
Going from Ray's answer, the answer looks like a "no." That said, I think that Brent may (and I stress the may bit of it) have a go at implementing something in T4. That said, until that happens it looks like its going to have to be the hard/difficult way of doing it, and that is in SQLite Browser or Manager.

I think if one does all the text work by using T4, and then using SQLite to manually type in the rtf code for the images would be about the quickest way of doing it at the moment until Brent has given T4 that capability.

AAMOI, does T4 have the ability to add in images for Topic, Study, and Journal notes? And if it does, can that be used to add images Commentary and Dictionary modules?

I think T4 already does this.

Anyway, the option of pasting an image rather than its rtf code can be easily added to SQLite Regexer.
If anyone needs it, let me know.

Hi

Yes that would be good if you can do it with less megs usage.
I do copy and paste images to T4.

thanks
