Just wondering - my computer crashed and I had to download the latest E-Sword. Now, my JL Dagg and John Gill reference works won't open in E-Sword.

 

Can these be converted easily?

They can be converted it just depends on which old version of e-Sword you were using before the computer crashed if you were using version 9 or 10 you can use the e-Sword Windows to Apple/Mac converter to convert them to the format that works best in e-Sword 11. 

The Windows to Apple/Mac format convert can be downloaded from this link:

https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html

 

The converter is at the bottom of the extras page

If your version of e-Sword was older than version 9 say e-Sword 8 you might need first to convert them to the version 9/10 format then convert again to the version 11 format 

 

To do the conversion from e-Sword 8 to e-Sword 9/10 format there is a converter available here on Biblesupport:

Below is a video which answers your query.

 

What is shared in this video only applies to both Topic and Study Notes used in old versions of e-Sword prior to version 9 and above. This would include Topic Note resources by JL Dagg, and John Gill resources.

 

That said, when it comes to Commentary (cmt) resources by Dagg and/or Gill, you will need to have the converter for them.

 

 

Trust you will find this helpful.
