I am using e-Sword ToolTip Tool v. 3.52 to develop a foreign language Bible.

Attached screenshot of Module save options.

 

I cannot find way to way to save the Bible file in Unicode.

 

What am I doing wrong wrong?

Can you copy and paste from wordpad to the newest version of ToolTip Tool?

Can you copy and paste  to notepad without getting gibberish letters? If not then is your source not Unicode

 

I can't see the screenshot.

 

I should use the HD version for the foreign language Bible in the language of Uganda.

So type this above Gen 1:1

 

#define title=TITLE

#define abbreviation=ABBR

#define information=Enter Info Here

#define ot=1

#define nt=1

#define apocrypha=0

#define strong=0

#define versionHD=4

÷

Gen 1:1

Q:  Can you copy and paste from Wordpad to the newest version of ToolTip Tool?

A:  Yes, I copied and pasted from Wordpad, and the foreign characters came out fine.

      I am using v.3.52.  From all I can tell that is the newest version.

 

Q:  Can you copy and paste to Notepad without getting gibberish letters?

A:  Yes, I copied and pasted to Notepad and the foreign characters came out fine.

 

 

The problem:

If I include foreign characters in the code, they will display just fine in the main Bible screen.

But in Parallel Mode (e.g. comparing KJV and this Luganda Bible), the word will not be displayed correctly.

 

If I use Unicode (e.g. ŋ) in the code, the Parallel Mode will display the foreign character nicely, but the mail Bible screen will show the Unicode.

Example from Genesis 1:9:      gakuŋŋaanire      This word should have two ENG characters in the middle.

 

 

I include #define versionHD=4 in the beginning, but it's still not working.  Something is still amiss.

 

From page 60 of the User's Guide:

The Unicode Text option saves the Bible file as Unicode UTF-8 text without any RTF code.

This option does not support font formatting, like red lettering, bold, italics, etc.
This works well with foreign language Bibles and is rarely used.

 

How do I save the Bible file as Unicode UTF-8?  I am missing something.

Is the Luganda Bible the Bible that you try to copy to e-Sword?

 

Ok, try to copy and paste the Notepad version to ToolTip Tool with the parameters above. (This is pure Unicode UTF-8 for each letter without coding tags)

Then click on the ModulesHD menu and choice "Save BBLI module": try first the old method.

 

Are you using Version 11.1.0 of e-Sword?

Q:  Is the Luganda Bible the Bible that you try to copy to e-Sword?

A:  Yes, the 2014 version from Biblica.

 

Q:  Are you using Version 11.1.0 of e-Sword?

A:  Yes, 11.1.0 verified.

 

The HD Modules is not showing.  Trying to active it by following using ALT-SHIFT-CTRL S (manual p. 37) opens the Settings window, but "Enable HD Modules" is definitely not there.  For what it's worth, the list is not in alphabetical order.

 

Any recommendations on getting HD Modules to show?  I verified I am using v.3.52.

I'm now using v. 2018.02.02 and can see the HD Modules menu.

 

Is selecting SAVE BBLI Module (either old or new) supposed to do something (like save the file)?

Selecting to Save BBLI doesn't do anything I can ascertain.

You need to make your module has the proper heading at the top which should look like this:
 

#define title=TITLE

#define abbreviation=ABBR

#define information=Enter Info Here

#define ot=1

#define nt=1

#define apocrypha=0

#define strong=0

#define versionHD=4

÷

Gen 1:1

 

The information in the header tells e-Sword Tooltip what type of module to create, you also need to make sure you know what folder the files are saving to

Problem fixed!   Foreign characters are now visible in all Modes.

 

#define versionHD=4 was in the syntax, but other lines (title and information) strangely different.

 

Thank you all!!
