Not sure if posted is correct section.

 

Long story short, the hard drive in my laptop crashed and I had to format my computer with new hard drive, thus I lost my original eSword files (don't know version either).  So I installed the latest version 11.1.0 and have issues with copy/paste using ctrl+c.  It will work sometimes and give me an error most times and it was getting annoying as I use this software for copy/paste verses while doing online Bible studies.

 

So I searched and downloaded an older version, 11.0.6 and works fine, no issues with copy/paste, but the Greek OT/LXX is corrupted and all I see is a bunch of square boxes instead of text.  Some verses show up but about 95% of it is boxes.  The latest edition 11.1.0 did not have this issue which makes me think its a problem with the version of software I got?

 

It also seems maybe the files are now different as my OLD eSword (before computer crashed) had the titles LXX and LXX+ for the Greek OT, but now the new ones show Greek OT, and Greek OT+.  Tried redownloading, deleting etc., and nothing seems to work.  Maybe they updated the files through the esword download tab?  Any way to find the older ones again?  Or any way to fix this issue?

 

Any help please?  

 

Thanks!!

Use another font that is compatible with Greek Diacritics(accents)  I use" Galatia SIL but even Arial and New Times Roman are compatible.

Click on Options and  Fonts and select another font in Greek.

Do you get a good result when copy paste to e-Sword topic/Study/Journal notes from this module? or any other non-Western-European text?
