Hi,

I can't get the Jonathan Edwards .topx file, "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" to open in my e-sword ref. library.

I read some of this three or four weeks ago.  Now when I go to the ref. library and select the title from the drop down nothing shows up in the reading pane when I click it's title.  All other Jonathan Edwards topics seem to work just fine.  I click on the title in the drop down and the text shows up in the reading pane just as it should.

I downloaded this module, "Works of Jonathan Edwards" quite a while ago from this site previously and everything worked properly.

 

Files are installed here:  C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword\Edwards, Jonathan - Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God

 

Here's what I've tried so far, today,

 

1. Downloaded and installed the latest e-sword, Version 10.2.1

Still won't work

2. Deleted the Edwards files as recommended from doctordavet dot com's instructions.  i.e., open eSword and then go to the “Options / Resource...” dialogue box. Here you’ll find all of your modules by category. In order to delete a module, simply right click it’s title and choose the only option available: “Delete Resource Permanently”. Scroll through and delete all of your extraneous dictionaries & commentaries.

Still won't work

3.  Downloaded the "Works of Jonathan Edwards" module from this site and installed it again, today.  Everything else works except the above mentioned topic

Still won't work

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions to remedy the situation.

That's the oddest thing. After reading your post I pulled up "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" by typing "angry" into the reference book search field, and the resource popped up, nothing wrong. But after exiting the reference viewer and then going back in, the book shows nothing. The title is there, but there is no text in the window. Seems like some sort of glitch or something.

Hi turnsouth,

 

I just did the same search as you and the resource popped up as a result.

 

I still can't get to it directly though!

From what I can tell (through experimenting with different topic files) there seems to be a bug in the reference viewer wherein if the the resource has only one "topic", and that topic is the first line of the text in the resource, then e-Sword will randomly not display the body text of the resource.

 

Anyway, here's what should be a working copy that you can use to replace the other one in your e-Sword folder (I bettered the formatting, and gave it two topics):Attached File  Edwards, Jonathan - Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.zip   29.8K   5 downloads

Hi turnsouth,

 

I downloaded you file, copied it to my c:/programs...works just fine.

Thank you so much for this.

 

Maybe the bug will be fixed in future updates.

 

Again, thanks so much!
