Does e-Sword work?




In Topic: Lectionary

Hi Drew,


I don't think e-Sword has a true lectionary format. But various lectionary modules have been created as either Devotionals (organized by date) or Reference Library modules (organized by chapter/topic).


It might make sense to organize the 1928 Book of Common Prayer by date, when possible, and put the contents into a Devotional module. That's easily doable. The text for the 1928 Book is freely available online. We have e-Sword authoring tools like ToolTip NT.

Hi Warm Breezes,


Could you instead run e-Sword on a virtual machine on your Mac? I suspect that may better emulate a PC than Wine. You should find some free options out there...




In Topic: Permission to Post a Module from Copyright Owner

RIght, if the copyright owner wants the material distributed through e-Sword itself (the downloads within e-Sword), then they need to speak with Rick Meyers.


If the copyright owner wants to produce an e-Sword module for distribution through this website, then they don't need any permission. They/you can simply create the module with the content, since they own the rights to its distribution.



In Topic: how to move my beefed up e-Sword from old PC to new PC?

05 February 2019 - 10:56 AM

Perhaps one day soon I will create a utility program that will copy all modules from one PC to the cloud and then from the cloud to the new PC. This is a common request.


For now, you must copy the files yourself. Do you feel comfortable copying files from one folder to another and using a USB drive?


The general steps to copy e-Sword modules is:


1. Go to your old PC and insert a USB drive.

2. Use File Explorer to navigate to C:\Program Files\e-sword or C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword

3. Copy all files from this location to the USB drive

4. Remove the USB drive from the old PC and insert the USB drive into the new PC.

5. Copy the files from the USB drive to e-Sword's location on the new PC, either C:\Program Files\e-sword or C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword


The e-Sword notes are in a different location under Documents\e-Sword and if needed, should be copied to the same location on the new PC.
