I understand all above.

This is the process I used to originally move my e-sword editor topic notes to e-sword-x.

The data from the .refi file I created many months ago has been placed into the editor for e-sword-x.

Im not using ToolTipNT to creating topic, study or journal notes to use in esword-x.

These are topics I have created in the e-sword-x editor.  

Im looking for a way to export all the esword-x topics into a file that I can use with a word processor. (RTF/PDF/WORD/PAGES)


If I was using the PC version I would just open TooTip NT and go to Modules/Topics/Read TOPX File.

‚ÄčThen navigate to the location of the topic.topx and ToolTip NT would open it without issue.  

I would be able to see all my topics in the file and edit them and save by going to Modules/Topics/Save TOPX File.

This works flawlessly every time.  (At least the hundreds of times i did it before converting to MAC.


From the MAC with esword-x, I would copy my modules I want to edit to my windows VM.

I open this files with ToolTip NT by going into ModulesHD menu and selecting the desired file I want to edit.

Read REFI Module

Read BBLI Module

Read CMTI Module

Read DCTI Module

Read TOPI Module

Read NOTI Module


I have used the study.noti from MAC to PC many times.  This stopped working in the last few months.

The BBLI once its imported into esword-x, the file goes.....................................(somewhere)................

So I keep the original RTF file I used to create them in ToolTip NT.  So I just edit this and create a new BBLI.

The TOPIC.topi, I can read in ToolTipNT as long as I don't edit it in esword-x.


So, not to get too caught up with ToolTip NT.  This is just what used on the PC.


Is there a way to export the topics created in editor for esword-x?

Other than selecting one topic at a time and copying and pasting the data into a word processor.



Lastly; I pulled out an old PC  and tried to open the file on it.  It still failed.

So PC hardware or VM doesn't matter.  I attached the file alway.


I will set my mind to start copying the data, one topic at a time.

I'll  probably have grey hair before I'm done.  .............(too late)............

First BBLI format is for bible modules not Topic Modules.

It appears that the top.topi file is encrypted thus it cannot be accessed by Tooltip. 

My suggestion would be to do a copy and paste from the topi file into a new refi module in Tooltip this would be readable in reference window in e-Sword X and be editable as needed

Thanks TJ.  

Yes I guess I will have to begin the old one at a time copy and paste routine.

But I still believe I won't have to do it all this way.  Perhaps I just need to start.

BBLI; Yes I made bible modules also so I can have red letters in the Old Testament.
