I use both a PC and a Mac, so no harm here. Regardless... Mac, or no Mac, it's still a great module!! Thanks, Eliran!

Gary, thanks for your kind words. Eliran

So...is there a simple way in Windows to view the extended line? Some of the verses in the Epistles are quite lengthy and the words I need sometimes happen to be at the end of the verse. I don't mind them not showing up on the main screen, but do need some simple way to find my way to the end. If the line-break feature is too fussy for programming, could a zoom-out button work?


Thanks for making e-Sword available to us! Blessings,

Simple?  I'd like to know if there is.  But here's my non-simple way of getting around it.  I copy and pasted it into MS Word and then clicked on the + to select the whole table, then had it auto fit into the window.  From there, I could see everything, even though words were split and wrapped around to the next line.  Then I could add additional table rows and copy and paste things into them instead (and delete the unnecessary columns).  So not simple, but it at least makes it usable.  It's a very cool resource for someone like me who needs some serious help with my Greek (that I studied 35 years ago!), but not being able to scroll was a bit frustrating.  At least this way I can see it all--eventually.

A simple remedy that may add SOME additional words: zoom out.


Hold the computer control button down and scroll down on your mouse.

More of the words will come into view. There seems to be a limit though.

The reply from Chalkbrd will still have to be used for even longer verses.



I've been trying new things since I posted this. This is the easiest way I found:


Open Wordpad- (easier than ms word for this purpose, it is found under Windows Accessories)

Go into View Mode and set word wrap at: wrap to window


Select the verse in e-sword. 

Copy verse: use Ctr C,  or right click- copy,  or right click- copy verse

Paste into Wordpad: use Ctr V,  or right click- paste,  or click the paste icon on the home page


All the boxes are neatly formatted for easy reading.
