I created a commentary module on the Gospel of John and tooltipped it. Worked perfectly in e-Sword on my PC but when I converted it to an apple commentary (cmti file) using e-Sword PC to Apple Module Converter and used it on my iPad everything worked including pop ups for verse references but it lost the formatting to pop up the Strong’s definitions. The verse references are in green as they should be but the Strong’s numbers are in purple though still elevated within the parentheses. Any ideas what I did wrong and how I can correct it?

Purple is the default color for strong's numbers in e-Sword 11

Ok but they do not pop up the definitions as they do on the PC and should on the iPad. Something wrong.

I fixed the problem. I tooltipped the commentary again and instead of saving it as a cmtx file and then converting it to an apple format (cmti), I created it using ModulesHD in Tooltip Tool NT, saved it as an HD commentary, emailed it to myself on my iPad and it works perfectly in e-Sword HD including the verse references and the Strong’s numbers.

Well, there you go. How to really solve a problem. Thanks for that, at I'm certain that this will save a lot of headaches for a lot of people.

 

Here is another tip, especially when it comes to converting other resources that require the use of tool tips. Open the (3rd Party) cmtx, topx, dctx and etc file in T4, and then do the rest as Oakleaf1 described to maintain the ability of the tooltip to pop up in e-Sword HD, LT, and X.

 

To Oakleaf1 - Deserved a like, and got one too.

 

Blessings
