Hello.  I have a Bible commentary I would like in my E-Sword dictionaries.  I can get it in epub, pdf, or mobi, whichever is easiest.  I don't know how to do this, I saw the one post that asked about epub - BBLX, but i didn't understand the instructions very well.  what SQL type/format are BBLX files?  I'm sure I can get the plain text if needed, as it seemed to be what was needed.

The easiest way to create modules for E-Sword is to use the module creation tool called E-Sword Tooltip. With this tool you can cut and paste plain text in to Tooltip to create modules. E-Sword Tooltip comes with a very easy to use users manual that makes module creation easy.

You can download E-Sword Tool from this link:

I should use the epub or mobi source and check it with the original pdf.

The PDF is probably picture format instead of select able text and unless you have some word-scanner that is 100% accurate can you expect reading errors. (sure for older work that is in handwritten form

You need to copy and paste the word to Tooltip Tool and make a commentary module by adding the parameters and the verse numbers with a ÷

The problem is that Greek and Hebrew words that must in Unicode form instead of special front used by the epub or mobi source.

 

You can download here a commentary module and use Tooltip Tool to "read" the module to understand how it works .  (click on "modules' or modulesHD and Commentary then "read commentary file".

 

You must tooltip the cross-references ( Scripture menu and tooltip OR Crtl+Shift+ T )

Thanks, I saw this tool, but I guess I didn't realize what it did

epub could be a good candidate for being converted into e-Sword.

sorry, I cannot go into details, as it depends on how your file is formatted.

In Mac, it can be as easy as just a few steps listed below:
- open terminal, type “unzip filename.epub”
- type “cat *.html > file.csv” to combine all html files within the epub in a single file.
- edit “file.csv” with a simple text editor to capture verse entries for each commentary, it could be quick if the source if well-formatted
- import into a .bbli file, which work in Mac/iOS/ PC version 11+
