In Topic: Esword module convert to Wordsearch 12

No, unfortunately most commercial Bible software do not allow you to convert material into their format. They need to sell you things and easy conversion into their format undermines that goal.



In Topic: Bible in the Karen Language

As TJ noted, you need to download ToolTip NT, the module creation tool.


It's much easier to create modules without using a specific font. Instead, the modern trend is toward unicode. This way, no special fonts are needed. It gets more complicated when trying to create Bible modules with specific fonts, both with module creation tool (ToolTip NT) and with the distribution (and installation) of the fonts with the module.




I work with the Karen people of Burma and would like to pursue getting a bible module of the Karen language available in e-Sword. I am reasonably capable technically, but would like to get some instructions of where to begin by those who have done this kind of thing before. Is there anyone who could give me some pointers as to where to begin this project?


Obviously, I need to locate the Karen fonts and a Karen electronic bible. However, assuming I have these, what steps are necessary to create an e-Sword module using this data?


Thank you,

Looks like e-Sword removed the ability to have a bolder line.


Sorry about that!



In Topic: Idea: e-sword for ereaders with open systems

Have you looked at the Microsoft Surface Pro? That keeps you in Windows where e-Sword works. I have a Surface Pro. It's not much thicker than an iPad, has a detachable keyboard that is also a screen cover. It's become my Windows-based "iPad".



In Topic: bibles won't open and neither will esword

My guess is the downloads did not finish. e-Sword initializes modules in the e-Sword folder when it starts. The 4 popups correspond with the 4 failed partial downloads. Make sure those modules have been removed from your e-Sword folder.


there is nothing to comprehensively list.  i went into the "download" heading in the program itself and clicked all the bibles that i could download and downloaded them.  then when i closed and opened it it said that 4 of the bibles won't open and lists them as being in my program files (x86)/e-sword folder but they aren't. i click "ok" on the 4 pop ups and then esword freezes at the loading screen.


i removed everything esword from my computer.  i'm going to try to reinstall.  last time i did this everything was still there so i'm not sure what to do.  how do i remove it all and start over?  seems like the easiest way
