Hi,

This is an awesome version. I run both e-Sword PC and e-Sword X but can only find a .bblx module. 

(available here: http://www.biblesupp...-english-bible/)

 

Anyone know of (or know how to make) an e-Sword X module?   The pdf/txt files are available public domain.

(https://nheb.net/index.html)

 

Thanks in advance

There is an easy to use conversion tool for converting non e-Sword X modules to e-Sword x format. The converter will only on on a PC and can be download from the official e-Sword website at the following link:

https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html  The converter listed at the bottom of the Extras page

yes! that worked :)

 

I got so excited I thought I'd convert a couple of reference modules as well, but alas it only works with .bblx files.  But it served the purpose nicely, was smooth and easy to use with WINE. Very helpful, thank you Tj

For converting reference modules you can download e-Sword ToolTip NT which is the module creation tool for both Windows and Apple/Mac versions of e-Sword.

You can download the Tooltip program from this link:

The official converter does handle Reference Book.

Maybe OP did not change the Type in the converter.

Thank you all

 

I tried re-downloading the official converter directly from the e-Sword site, but the type of file is still restricted to .bblx     It is, by the way, exactly the same program as is available here on BibleSupport.

Maybe there is an older version, or somewhere else to download it from for a version that handles reference books?   Maybe they changed it due to copyright issues? 

 

As for Tooltip NT, I had installed previously the NT Tooltip but couldn't figure out how to use it, as I am not a programmer and didn't know what commands to enter. I do see that there is a whole sub-forum here with what looks like a tutorial.  So that may be an option for the future if someone wants to be a power user and invest the time in it.  Not me at this point.

 

Adding to those complications are the fact that aftr re-installing it, I now seem to have a slight bug in my NT Tooltip, that for some weird reason, it won't let me close or click "ok" on the initial developer splashscreen, so I can't open it up now anyways.  Re-installing WINE didn't fix the problem.  Re-installing Tooltip NT to the 4-4 version didn't fix it either. It's probably something on my computer.  Perhaps it will work for someone else.

 

Well, thank you everyone for the tips and for trying.  I do appreciate it. I'm not a programmer, so don't want to spend several more hours fiddling with these types of things.  I'd rather just get to doing what I installed this program for originally - studying the Bible!  Hence the wisdom of having setup  both e-Sword X AND e-sWord PC both on my computer and the ability to switch back and forth.

 

I can heartily recommend the New Heart English Bible.  Especially the updated 2016 version.  Very nice. That, in conjunction with Brenton's English translation of the Greek Septuagint is a very nice combo.

 

Blessings to all

This is a shot of the official converter. You need to select the different types of module from the dropdown
