#24662 E-sword on....Windows 8....Surface Pro

Posted by mikecindi on 11 April 2015 - 09:08 PM

eSword is not compatable with RT.  Using eSword on a Surface should be a breeze as you shouldn't have to contend with "fat fingers" trying to tap small icons.  The pen that comes with the Surface fixes that problem.

For your laptop you may have to either press Fn+F4 or change a setting in your BIOS to "reverse" the order of your function keys.

#22614 Bible Reading Plan Module Question

Posted by mikecindi on 24 October 2014 - 05:37 PM

Not with the Bible reading format of eSword.  I created a "daily devotional" format for my plan and initially had the link to verses that didn't include whole chapters.  I then later added the verses (makes for a BIG file but mine is a once through the Bible in a year).  The latter of course limits you to a specific Bible version.


Using Brent H's Tooltip, hotkey, and search utilities really help if you include the verses in a daily devotional.

#20043 Bible reading plan module partial chapter question

Posted by mikecindi on 07 January 2014 - 09:33 PM

With a little effort (okay for me it was a lot) you can use Tooltip and HotKey to create a devotional module that has your Bible readings in it and can cross chapter boundaries.  This creates a much larger module than the reading plan module but was worth it for me.

#19514 e-Sword on Windows 8.1 tablet

Posted by mikecindi on 04 December 2013 - 10:32 PM

With older versions of Windows it was easy to make the scroll bars wider which may help but I've not tried with Win 8.1.  While I can navigate eS fairly well with my tablet (Toshiba Satellite U925t) it would be nice to have larger buttons like the ribbon in MS Office 2010.

#18750 Can E-Sword 10 be used with a Touch Tablet using Windows 8?

Posted by mikecindi on 26 September 2013 - 10:01 PM

I continue to use eS on my MSI Windpad without much difficulty.  There are a few issues with the precision since the eS interface has small icons that are not touch friendly but I can navigate easily enough to keep up in the various church meetings I may be in.  The Windpad has a 10 inch screen.  I have recently "upgraded" to a Toshiba convertible ultrabook (Satellite U925t) but haven't tried eS on it yet.  I have been using the Word without issue as I mostly keep the device in tablet form.  It has a 12.5 inch screen.

#17029 Can E-Sword 10 be used with a Touch Tablet using Windows 8?

Posted by mikecindi on 18 May 2013 - 01:21 AM

I use eSword and theWord daily on a MSI WindPad 110W.  Certainly neither is designed for a "touch" environment but I have no complaints with these programs over others that are not Windows 8 apps.  Note that Windows RT does not run on the same processor architecture that Windows 8 runs on so the requirements for software will be different (i.e. eSword won't run on it).  So to answer your intial question yes eSword works nicely with Windows 8 just as it does with Windows 7.

@BH. Both options work well for what I am doing, reduce the errors (human specifically) and the time requirement.  Thank you very much for creating these utilities.

#6812 How to Make e-Sword Modules - ToolTip NT User's Guide - .94 / Revision 2/...

Posted by mikecindi on 25 February 2012 - 10:57 PM

Mr. Josh, I was not wanting to add to your workload I just wanted to point something out that I noticed in the documentation. I appreciate what has been provided and intended no slight to you or others.

I presented my concern about the single chapter books incorrectly. How I should've presented it was that when creating a reading plan if you just have the book name (e.g. Philemon) and not the name plus chapter (e.g. Philemon 1) it is not tooltipped and then there is a module creation error. Interestingly is that when Phlemon 1 is tooltipped it creates Phm_1:1 but actually displays the full chapter. (NB this is within the reading plan which, as mentioned previously, defaults to whole chapters within e-Sword's Bible reading applet.)  Since I have mostly been creating various reading plans that I've used over the past 30 years that is where most of the previously listed findings came up.
