I am not using e-Sword anywhere near as much as I used to.
I run both Windows and Mac and I find that the font rendering in wine/crossover office leaves a bit to be desired.
I think the fonts appear to be anemic in appearance.
I use two solutions (maybe three).
1) I do have e-Sword-X for the macOS.
It's only ok. I prefer the layout options available on the windows version better, but if I simply need quick access to an e-Sword resource on the Mac then e-Sword-X works. (no font issues).
2) My second solution (one I use more often) is to run the Windows version in a VM-Windows 10 session.
The VM software of choice for me is Parallels. It's Windows so no font issues.
The other reason to use a VM is another of my favorite Bible software programs sells their Mac version which is actually the windows version under Crossover-Office. This is where I have experience with the weak fonts.
I have found that the software is more acceptable (but not perfect) if you increase the font size slightly. It gives a bit more body to the font thickness and makes it more readable.
3) My third solution is to run e-Sword on an actual Windows machine and access it via remote software. I use TeamViewer for that as you can get a free license for personal use and they have both Windows and macOS clients.
This solution works quite nicely and again it is running on real Windows.
just my $2.00 worth. -
p.s. Bumping up the display font size works for my "Other" software (which is WORDSearch Bible) I do not knos if it would be acceptable under e-Sword but should able to be be easily tested.
