It would be nice to have a complete list of all e-sword standard files/ file types available, their specific purpose and association, pinned somewhere in the forum.

 

The ones I question are the 8 below:

ComboList.ocx

custom.dic

headings.en

headings.es

headings.pt

localize.lanx

RichEdit.ocx

vsth_ae.the

 

Any informational post should also add the standard:

Bookmarks.lstx

journal.jnlx

markup.ovlx

study.notx

topic.topx

 

File types:   .bblx   .cmtx   .dctx   .devx   .harx   .lexi   .lexx   .mapx   . refi   .refx   .topx   .ttf

 

Thanks for any help.  :)

 

 

 

 


Jesus loves you... very much!

As there are versions of e-Sword for both Windows users and Apple/Mac users there are different file formats for each specific installation e-Sword.

For E-Sword versions 9 & 10 for Windows here are the module file types:

 

Bible (bblx)
Commentary (cmtx)
Dictionary (dctx)
Bible Reading Plan (brpx)
Devotional (devx)
Topic (topx)
Harmony File (harx)
Maps/Graphics (mapx)
Reference Libraty (refx)

Note (notx)

Journal (jnlx)

Memory (memx)

Markup (ovlx)

 

For Apple/Mac installations of e-Sword version 9,10 &11 here are the module file types:

 

Bible (bbli)
Commentary (cmti)
Dictionary (dcti)
Bible Reading Plan (brpi).
Devotional (devi)
Reference Library (refi)

Note Files (noti)
Topic Files (topi)

Lexicon (lexi)

 

e-Sword 11 for Windows reads all of the module formats for versions 9 & 10 for Windows as well as all of the Apple/Mac module formats

 

The 8 files in your list are files need for e-Sword to work properly:
 

headings.en

headings.es

headings.pt

 

The headings files allow e-Sword to properly display section headings in bible modules the .en extension is for English, .es extension is for Spanish, and the .pt extension is for Portuguese . 

 

combolist.ocx is one of two active x controls that are installed with e-Sword the other is called richedit.ocx. Neither file is dangerous they are both part of what makes e-Sword run 

 

The other 3 files custom.dic, localize.lanx and vsth_ae.the are also files needed in order for E-Sword to run properly

I just had to make a video initially about OCX controls, and also added a bit about DLL controls as well, as a result of what Mr Higgins shared:

 

 



combolist.ocx is one of two active x controls that are installed with e-Sword the other is called richedit.ocx. Neither file is dangerous they are both part of what makes e-Sword run 

 

So, without further ado, here is the video

 

 

Trust this has helped in your understanding of what makes e-Sword (and other types of software which uses these controls) work.

 

Blessings,
