Hello,

I am working on creating a Commentary Module and I've got everything completed, except when I create the module all the Hebrew text displays incorrectly.

 

In Tooltip Tool NT this is what I see:

 

      ÷Genesis 1:1

      בראשית IN THE BEGINNING — Rabbi Isaac said:

 

But E-Sword displays this:

 

      áøàùéú IN THE BEGINNING — Rabbi Isaac said:

 

 

I've run the "Hebrew Unicode Fixup" but still get the same result.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Thank you!

Check the font setting is e-Sword, the default font for Hebrew is Titus Cyberbit Basic, if the default font is selected in e-Sword than go back to Tooltip and make sure the Hebrew is in Titus Cyberbit Basic.

This is how the Hebrew text displays when I use Ezra SIL as my font

In T4 uncheck the setting "Old RTF code", if you are making an rtf Bible module.

If you want bbli type then I suggest you convert the .bblx you have made using e-SwordPCtoAppleModuleConverter.exe for a good result.

 

What am I babbling on about Bible modules..... same should apply to commentary though. Will check.

With which module do you have a problem?

 

This is an encoding issue, not a font issue.

These are the variables I'm using in the RTF file. Notice both the right2left and define_font variables:

#define description=Aramaic Targumim of Tanakh + Peshitta NT
#define abbreviation=TgTNK
#define comments=
This Bible Module has 4 major parts:

(1) The Torah (Genesis-Deuteronomy) is the Targum of Onkelos,
(2) The Prophets are from Targum Yonatan ben Uziel (Targum Jonathan to the Prophets) compiled from the CAL website
(3) The Writings for the rest of Tanakh (the Old Testament) are various and also compiled from the CAL website
(4) The Brit Chadasha (New Testament) is the Aramaic Peshitta converted to Hebrew square script for ease of reading
#define version=2
#define ot=1
#define nt=1
#define right2left=1
#define font=HEBREW
#define apocrypha=0
#define strong=0
÷
Gen_1:1 בְּקַדְמִין, בְּרָא יְיָ, יָת שְׁמַיָּא, וְיָת אַרְעָא. 

(What does the define_version variable do?)

 

I'm attaching both iOS and PC display. If font is the only issue here then why in iOS the references displays from left to right for Hebrew even thought I set the right2left variable?

 

So which font is the one to use in T4, Ezra SIL or TITUS Cyberbit Basic?

 

Also, I'm attaching the RTF file for this bible module. I've been trying for many days without success.

set define to version 3 for bblx, and don't have anything checked in the modules menu

However for a .bbli module that works on PC and Apple you need to use the above mentioned converter, or just make a .bbli file which will need different ModuleHD variables.

Corrected 4 to 3

A BBLX in RTF should be Version=3.  A BBLX in HTML should be versionHD=4.
