Sorry I guess I'm not computer literate enough to work those. I found it to download on the first one and thought I downloaded but I don't really see a way to get in to it to look up a word or bring it in to e sword. Thanks for you effort though!
Click module installation on the bottom left of your screen for help in installing modules. Click e-Sword Manual on the bottom left of your screen for more general information on using e-Sword. Keep using help and trying different things, and you will become more comfortable pretty quickly. The instruction materials are excellent.
My feeling is that Rick is an apple snob. It's quite a common illness among apple culture.
So, feel lucky there is even a PC version. The fact that android dominates the market by no small margin doesn't matter.
I wouldn't hold my breath as I'm sure he's had multiple thousands of requests for this over the years, many with the offer to pay for it, with no hint of ever becoming reality.
There was only a PC version for many years. e-Sword for Apple is the new kid on the block, so I think that you're wrong.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Josh Bond, his staff, and the many contributors who have made BibleSupport what it is. I know that God is using it for His Glory. I also give thanks that God's Word never returns to Him void. It always accomplishes His Will and Purpose. From the Home Page:
Amen - I will join you in prayer. This site is definitely a worthy ministry - responsible for sending Godly materials all over the world. I give thanks that God's Word never returns to Him void, rather it always accomplishes His will and purpose.
You are giving instructions that are not valid for Windows 7.
You go to the "Tools" menu at the top of the page, and select "Reference Library."
Then at the top of that window there is a drop down menu of all your topx files.
From there you select the one you wish to read.
Oh and BTW, it is condescending to tell people to get used to e-Sword.
Just give them instructions on how to use whatever they are asking for...period.
We all have so many programs on our computers these days, and each one is different.
Each one requires a special knowledge of how to use it properly.
I have to Google for a lot of things that I do not know how to do in software.
So, lighten up on people asking for help and just give them clear instructions, as I have done.
The instructions I gave were correct. You just described another way of doing it. I think what I described is easier. I'm using the latest version of e-Sword on Windows 7. I was just trying to help - nothing more. Lighten up on the unwarranted condemnation.
Get a good variety of everything, especially the free modules. Do this before you spend any money on premium modules. Some of the best modules are free. The rest is a personal matter and really depends on what you want to do with e-Sword. Example: do you want to study ancient languages? Another example: do you wish to use modern Translations of the Holy Bible? Read the information available before you download modules - paid or free. You have plenty of time, so don't get in a hurry, especially in spending money.
