The only real reason to use a site like dropbox or Google Drive is to move resources from one computer to another such as from a home computer to a work computer or between two personal computers. Modules for use with e-Sword install in to the the c:\program files (x86)\e-sword folder be default as the modules have to be on the same computer that e-Sword is installed on in order for e-Sword to work correctly. e-Sword does not have ability to uses resources directly from the internet.
The two resources options are folders that are part of e-Sword's installation and can only be set to folders that exist on your computer.
Yes your "use description" is right on. I want the ability to work on the PC. And when my neck and back is shot I'll go pick up the Windows Tablet and continue in some nice comfy chair.
I have all the modules in the places that e-Sword created. I followed this plan with which you might be familiar . . .
More specifically this part .. .
" To do this, you’ll first need to create new journal notes, markup, study notes, and topic notes files in your Dropbox folder. Do this from the computer where you have your personal information saved. This will create blank files in those locations. You can then exit e-Sword and copy files from your My Documents/e-Sword folder to your Dropbox folder, overwriting the blank files you just created. When you next open e-Sword, your notes ought to be there. "
I re-read Dropbox's instructions on adding files. Simple just drag and drop.
But for some reason the user files are updating but the ones on Dropbox are not? I did a drag and drop with both the Resources and User Files. Leaving them intact in the PC orig configuaration.
My tongue is stuck on the flagpole and I can't get any further. oh brother !!
