I am new to e-Sword, so I cannot guarantee that every one of the following issues is a genuine (or unknown) bug. However, I have not been able to solve these problems using either eSword 11.05 or 11.06 (Win10 64).

 

1. I have the same problem as JPG above with Hebrew (and other) files. They display in a font that is different than the chosen font.

 

2. Possibly related to #1: In many texts, accented letters do not display properly but instead appear as "?". For me this is the case with French and German Bibles. For example, the Louis Segond translation (file frenchls.bblx) looks like this: "Et tu iras jusqu'? Babylone; L? tu seras d?livr?e, C'est l? que l'?ternel te rach?tera de la main de tes ennemis."

 

3. The Compare and Parallel tabs do not allow display of all Bibles. I currently have 41 Bibles installed [with tabs that work if I click on them]. However, if I go to the Parallel tab, the drop-down menu lists only 33 of these Bibles. I cannot choose any of the other ones for Parallel display. If I go to the Compare tab, again not all Bibles show up. If an OT verse, I see 21 Bibles - but I have 28 Bibles installed that should be showing the verse. If a NT verse, I see 27 Bibles - but I have 30 Bibles installed that should be appearing.

 

Many thanks for any help / apologies if any of these are not genuine bugs!

Point 2.

Is your Windows 10 none English. It appears like an encoding issue.

Yes, it is an English Win10 system.

I also have other input languages, but the main language is English.

I usually use the US Intl keyboard setting; tried setting this instead to the simpler US English keyboard [with restart], but the problem persists.

If this is also the latest format of module that you have downloaded? and you still have an issue, I suggest you report to Rick Meyers.

The Bible module you mention is working ok for me.

Point number 2 above (accented letters displaying as "?") has now been fixed on my system after several messages back and forth with Rick Meyers. The conflict was with this Windows setting: "Language for non-Unicode programs". Setting that to English solved the problem. [Thus I imagine that the French and German modules in question may be HTML but non-Unicode (??). Note that other languages always worked fine on my system: Russian, Hebrew, Polish, etc.]

Update: Rick Meyers answered that Compare & Parallel are limited to HTML-based modules.

I had observed the same problem.  It seems that the Hebrew and Greek Interlinears have problems with this.  Are there any tools available to address this issue?

There is a module converter here.

Any official modules cannot be converted with this but can be downloaded in the usual way from within e-Sword.

I'm glad to see the e-Sword application being improved. I still use it almost daily for preparing bilingual English-Japanese sermons. My favorite Bible software.

 

As of version 11.06 the font selection dialog is broken on my test machine - Windows 10 Pro 64
Here is a screenshot - all font selector dropdowns are empty. My guess is because I am running Japanese windows with English language pack layered on top, the different codepage is cause problems. When I type chpg at a cmd prompt it returns 932 which means the default codepage is still Shift-JIS (Japanese).

 

I programmed VB way back in the old days but I know that it is possible to set the codepage on most controls so maybe setting the codepage programatically can allow these dialogs to work on non-English OS? If I am off-base forget it but the bug remains.

The text color box only allows Background, Popup, and Red Letter options.
