Hello all. I'm currently starting a new project, a dictionary based upon the Ante-Nicene writings of the early church. What I would like to do is use select quotes from those texts and hyperlink to the referenced work. I'm using T4, but I can't figure out how to make it work. So far the best idea I've had was to import all of the 9 volumes into the dictionary module I am creating but my hyperlinks will not work. Any further direction is much appreciated!
I suggest you take a little time to read the E-Sword Tooltip users manual as it contains all of the information regarding making a dictionary module for e-Sword use. You can find the user manual by clicking "Help" in the Tooltip menu will display a short drop down menu, the user manual is the last item on the drop down menu. The manual is in pdf format
Essentially e-Sword itself has built in functionality that automatically links bibles, commentaries, and topic/reference modules to dictionary modules. The built in functionality is such that clicking any word in a bible, commentary or topic/reference will display the matching dictionary term.
It sound like your best bet is to create two modules, either a commentary or topic/reference module and separate dictionary module. The commentary or topic/reference will contain the full text of the writings and the dictionary module will contain the terms and definitions from the full text
