Hello Gentlemen,

I know this is supposed to be easy, but I always seem to make things difficult, which is no doubt due to my lack computer savvy.  I've had e-Sword for a number of years now and it's worked quite well.  Then I got a Mac and continued using e-Sword along with CrossOver, which was so-so.  I wished for the day when there would be a e-Sword for Mac.  Now that day has arrived and I’ve got e-Sword X downloaded and some Bibles and dictionaries installed, but I would like to get my study notes, topic notes and markup file installed.  I go to File > Resources > Import > (that takes me into Finder) e-Sword > the files are all listed there, but they are inactive or shaded out and I can’t select them.  Now what?  Desperate for help.  Scott

This is an old post that seems to have gotten lost in time and gone unanswered, so I thought I would give it some life in the event someone ran across it via a Google search.


E-sword X for the Mac does not have the same exact functions as e-Sword for the PC... there are pros and cons to both. The bad news is that older modules must be converted. The good news is that newer modules should work just fine.


For those who are switching to e-Sword X from a PC and have study notes and mark up files, these files must be converted into a useable version for the Mac. A tool for doing this is found at e-Sword.net under the "Extras" page. Just follow the link.


Hope this helps anyone with OS X. Blessings.
