In Topic: Topic Notes Auto Save

24 November 2019 - 03:31 PM

Is there an auto-save for the editor - topic notes in particular - or do you have to periodically click "Save"?




You got it you have to click "Save"   It is a good idea to do it if you are working on a long topic note as you will loose it all if you have a system problem. That being said the note will save if you close E-sword or when you move to another note or study note etc.


I try to error on the side of caution, so save my notes a lot.

In Topic: Installed Bibles not appearing

19 November 2019 - 12:54 AM

Thanks for the advice.  I am running Windows.  But you think I should convert the files to Apple? 


To answer your question, I'm having trouble with all of the Bibles and commentaries.  I've mostly stuck to trying to get Young's Literal to work (for no particular reason). 


E-Sword ver 12 is coded to work better with the BBLI files.  My bad should have said PC 2 Apple will not work with locked files.  I tried to dwnload Youngs and had no problem.


Have you tried just moving the file to another location outside e-sword restart windows then move the file back and restart windows again then try it in e-sword. It my be that it did not register. Worth a try. Windows is a rather strange beast by times.

In Topic: Installed Bibles not appearing

Go to the web site above, at the bottom you will find a PC to Apple module converter. Install it and then use it to convert the bibles to Apple {bbli} these should show up for you.


Question?  What bibles were you trying to install.

In Topic: Search multiple translations at once?

16 November 2019 - 10:07 AM

Easy to do. You can use extended search for the Bible, Commentary or Dictionary. Just click on the heading word and it will open a drop down list. Pick extended search this will open another window, if you click on the icon that looks like three books this will open a list of all the bibles, cmtx or dic. you have. Pick the ones you wish to search, enter the word / words you want to search for. The icon that looks like a gear will give you some other search options.

In Topic: e-Sword X font size in Reference Books

11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM

Anyone discovered a way to increase the font size of text in the Reference Books window of e-Sword X? I'm working with some folks with accessibility needs that could use that text larger. I know it can be done in the Windows version simply by clicking on the magnification icon, but there is not one in the e-Sword X version for Macs.


I went to a Apple site and found this set of commands. Hope this helps as I do not use Apple.



Ctrl+[   increases the font size by one point.

Ctrl+]   decreases the font size by one point.
