I am trying to teach someone how to use e-Sword X (MacOS) remotely (he's in Indiana and I'm in Massachusetts). So I am writing out the instructions. However, I am an e-Sword for Windows user and have no access to a Mac. Does anyone know if there is a user's guide in pdf (or any portable version) like the one that exists for the Windows version? I've been watching some YT videos of the Mac version and noticed subtle differences in the UI. For example, instead of using tabs to select different modules, there is a pull-down to do the same thing. The problem is I don't know what I don't know. If you know what I mean.


Thanks for any help.

The only help file offered in e-Sword X that I know of is what can be found by going to the app's Help menu, which takes the user to a webpage on the e-Sword X website.


Also, I found only two YouTube videos that may help, and they can be found here: Video 1 and Video 2.


In addition to this, I also learned how to keep the different content panes inside the e-Sword X application window in a permanent position. For example, a content pane would be the Bible pane, or the Commentary pane, etc. So, in order to place these in a desired position, drag the edges of the panes until they are placed as desired. And once you wish to close e-Sword X for the day, click the red button in the upper left-hand corner. This will keep the panes positioned in the last state of the application, and this can be seen the next time the app is opened. However, if the Quit command is used, and not the red button, in order to close the app for the day, all of the panes will go back to their default locations. I found this to be very frustrating, so I thought I would add this nugget of information.

Here are the videos ready to go.




And with that, the best I can say, "Enjoy!"
