Since upgrading to e--sword 11, I haven't been able to get the Word macros working in Word 2016


The Select Translation macro seems to work correctly, search pulls up the dialog box and Paste Verse opens the copy Verses dialog for e-sword.


However, the Convert Scripture reference macro isn't working.


In the attached screen shot, I attempted to replace John 3:16-18 and the result was a single line that says John 3:16-0 NASB+


I have uninstalled and reinstalled e-sword and the macros.  I am running Windows 10 and Word 2016.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you updated eSword before 7-23-2016 and did no update your macros you will need to update the macros


If after that let Rick know that some of the features of the macros are not working for you he might not know his updates to esword effected the macros


if the issue is not one of the above and canot be fixed there is Hotkey http://www.biblesupp...e-sword-hotkey/

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

I have the same problem. Anyone found a solution yet?


Also, when installing the Macros I had to change the directory where they install, in order for Word to show them in the list of Macros. Changed it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office16\STARTUP. Word now can see the macros and they work as per DSaws description, except for the 'Convert Scripture Reference' Macro.

I'm new to eSword (ver 11.2.2) and downloaded the word macros and used the installer, but cannot get the macros to work in Word 2016.  Could be that I'm new to the world of macros, but I've looked them up in the Developer menu found the macro 'eswordpaste' clicked the run button, but nothing happens.  I've tried it with eSword opern and closed.  Maybe I'm just doing this incorrectly - can anyone help?
