#37276 transfer premium modules from one computer to another

Posted by Silverhair on 29 January 2020 - 10:38 PM

If you have the install codes that you used the first time when you go to install them on the new CPU they will ask for those codes just enter them and the install will work.

#37135 Search for highlighted text

Posted by Silverhair on 20 December 2019 - 09:57 AM

You say you have two CPU's one with and one without the periscope.  Look for the "markup.ovlx" file for the one without the periscope. Use this file to replace the markup.ovlx on the other CPU that had the periscope and it will copy all of the highlights over.


As always make a backup of any file you are changing.

#37081 How to Add 4 Separate Selectable eSword Startup Main Screen Pages

Posted by Silverhair on 14 December 2019 - 04:40 PM

Can the ability to add separate eSword startup main screens pages be included in eSword?



This may be something that would work for you. The program is called "Resourcer" and can be found here




I have not used it so can not give a review. 


If you try it and it works please let  us know how it works out for you.



I dwnloaded the program and took  a quick look at it. Seems to have potential but did note that it will only show pre Ver 12 files. No {BBLI, CMTI , DCTI etc) perhaps one of our more advanced users could change that so these will be shown and usable.





#35620 eSword on Android operating systems

Posted by Silverhair on 17 March 2019 - 12:06 AM


There is a method or a work-around that you sort of can (loosely described) "run" e-Sword for PC on a Samsung tablet. e-Sword is not installed on the tablet, but is actually run remotely on your tablet from your PC. In order to do this, you need to install a Remote Connection program on both your PC and Tablet.


My recommendation is a program called TeamViewer, which is free for the individual user.


Below is screenshot of e-Sword running on my tablet using TeamViewer.

Hi Stephen


When you say "you sort of can (loosely described) "run" e-Sword" care to expand on that.

#34085 How do I remove a module

Posted by Silverhair on 11 July 2018 - 11:52 PM

Simple way to remove the file.  You may want to save the files just in case you my wish to reinstall them later.


This is done from inside E-Sword. Go to OPTIONS , RESOURCE, this will open up so you can see all the resources that you have on your system. Right click on the one you wish to remove and you will see the option to delete the file. This will remove the file from your system so as I said you may want to backup the resource just in case.


You will also notice there are chk boxes. If you are not sure if you want to remove the file you can remove the chk mark and when you restart E-Sword that file will not be loaded.

#32795 Able to move a blog

Question      Is there a way to move a blog over to the message board?  


I have been getting some interesting comments on the "Baptism does not save" blog so thought it would be good if it could be moved over to the message board. Just not sure how/or if it can be done. Would like to bring the comments with it if possible.

#30690 Bible Reading Plan

Posted by Silverhair on 15 May 2017 - 09:00 AM

That all depends upon what your plan is.  You could read one proverb each day, or start reading the gospels or Paul's letters. A reading plan is what you want it to be. It should not be a duty that you have to do (get through so many verses) it should be something you want to do (spend time with God).


For me I have been reading and studying Romans again. I may get through 1 verse or 5. It is not how much but how well.


Reading plans are guides, they are not carved in stone. Enjoy your time with our Father.

#30608 What's Still Broken As Of e-Sword 11.06?

Posted by Silverhair on 02 May 2017 - 11:40 PM

Hi Larry


This is how I have been able to reorder the bibles on my system.  Open MS file explorer and add a letter to the file name. In this case I used "z" eg. "CJB  renamed to ZCJB.  ESword seems to use the file system as found in explorer to set the list displayed.  This works for cmtx and dctx files also.  Hope this helps.  See the png file for how it displays.Bible.PNG

Posted by Silverhair on 02 April 2017 - 08:44 PM

To remove the headings.  In E-Sword go to Options click on it. In the drop down list remove the chk mark next to "Display Bible Pericope"  No more headings.

#29371 Concordance Glitch

Posted by Silverhair on 03 November 2016 - 02:13 PM

I went through and checked this problem.  When you want to do the search DO NOT use the enter key, use the mouse to select the search icon and it will do the search.   Not the best way of doing it but it does seem to work.
