New format Hebrew Bibles do not follow the font settings for Hebrew. Similar for new format, ISBE dictionary, Strong's dictionary,

I found that copying and inserting a text into a module I am working on will add an unwanted space plus paragraph symbol which needs to be deleted.  Because of this, I have reinstalled 10.4.0 for my module work.

I experienced this problem using ver. 11.0.3 without knowing that 11.0.5 was available.  This issue has been taken care of with 11.0.5.

I've been meaning to post this for a while. 

 

e-Sword 11 likes to blink at me. No, I'm not making this up! ;)

 

[Fixed in 11.06]

 

It's rather annoying. Sometimes I can re-produce the blink. Sometimes it's seemingly random, such as when I'm typing in another program, like Sublime.

Hey Josh,

I got the same thing every time I copied a verse using the copy verse feature...the e-sword icon on my task bar would blink yellow.....EXTREMELY ANNOYING

Incorrect search matches in Greek Bibles.

 

Windows 10 64bit. e-Sword 11.0.5.

 

Bible search in new HTML spec file. Official module.

 

Search for παιδισκη in the Greek NT BYZ , no additional search options selected. Search for any/all words. Results are returned that include partial matches at Act 16:16; Gal 4:22; Gal 4:23; Gal 4:30; Gal 4:31

 

or ελαλουν

Partial match at Luke 4:36; Luke 6:11; Luke 9:30

 

 

Rick Meyers' reply is.

 

As for your search concerns...
 
* Searching the Unicode Bibles, such as the Greek, will always return partial matches.  Regular Expressions "word boundaries" fail beyond the ASCII character set.  If you can come up with a valid regular expression to prevent partial matches on Unicode text, then I will be happy to implement it :-)  You can experiment to your heart's content in the Search dialog by changing the Search Type to REGEX.
 
Now if you are wondering why it worked in the RTF modules it is because the characters were represented by codes which began with a \ and ended with a ?, both of which are REGEX "word boundaries".

 

* In searching for Greek words in the commentaries, dictionaries, etc., the fail would have to do with their representation within the database.  "Λογος" may be written as "λογος", or "λογος", or even "λογος" and still display as Λογος.  Welcome to the world of HTML!

 

 

Hmm

As for your display concerns...

 

* The display control seems to have a mind of its own in the rendering of right-to-left languages.  It is being told to use the correct font, but it is not doing so.  I cannot fix what I didn't write.

 

* VB6 menus cannot display Unicode characters.  This has always been a problem, and has been present in all previous versions of e-Sword.  What you couldn't do before was right-click over these words and do a "Quick Search".  So while the menu looks funny, you now have new functionality :-)

 

 

Hmm

Thanks for sharing the info, Jon.

 

On the Text Control issue with Hebrew not showing the correct font, maybe this will be fixed by the makers of Text Control. Or maybe it already has? e-Sword is using an older, dated version  of Text Control that also has that hyperlink bug we discussed on this website a while back.

I am having issues downloading and installing bible modules.  (This problem has been present since 11.0.5)  When I initiate a download (say bible modules), the download proceeds as normal, however the installation process is interuppted with an error message that states:

Error encountered opening Bible file C:\Programs Files (x86)\e-Sword\name of module.bblx

 

After a little digging, I found the temp directory where the modules are being downloaded to (which for me is c:\Users\my user id\AppData\Local\Temp\DownloadXCtrl\name of temp directory (changes each time)

 

In this temp directory, the files are downloaded with a .bblx.tdx file extension.  To get the modules to load correctly into e-Sword, I copied the .bblx.tdx files over to the proper e-Sword directory and renamed them from .bblx.tdx to .bblx

 

It seems as though the logic to copy the .tdx files over to the proper e-Sword directory and rename them to .bblx is failing.

 

I have screen shots (I can't seem to attach them to this post...) detailing all of the above and hopefully can be addressed via a patch or updated release.  I thought this would have been fixed in 11.0.6 but that didn't seem to be the case.

 

In terms of the operating system, I am running Windows 10 Home Edition (without the anniversary update installed).
