In Topic: Is there a Bible that can be edited?

Yesterday, 12:07 PM

Is there an available module that lets you edit, add commentary/notes, and so forth?

Bible Modules cannot be edited directly in e-Sword, as Sliverhair said the only option for editing a bible module is by using e-Sword Tooltip. Silver also suggested the use of the notes editor available within e-Sword to create study notes. Both are good suggestions and I would like to add you can create commentary modules for use with e-Sword by using e-Sword Tooltip. Commentary modules once installed into e-Sword are viewed in the Commentaries window within e-Sword. 

In Topic: e-Sword using Wine fonts not rendering?

21 March 2019 - 02:22 PM

So I did some research and WINE seems to be the program of choice for others, and is working very well except for the font issue.  


Can you suggest a VM that people like to use and works well?  Can you elaborate on why you think a VM would work better? 


I thank you for the effort. I will keep researching the font rendering issue and appreciate your attempt to help. 


Update:   I tried to delete this post as it seems a little non-productive and I didn't like the snarky tone of the original answers, which is not the type of disrespect I would expect to find in a forum like this,  but I couldn't.  


But what I can do, if I do find a solution to this problem, I will come back and post it here for everyone's benefit.  (Perhaps after the bugs have been worked out of the newest versions).  Thank you

I was not being snarky with my first answer to you, I intended to follow up after you responded but another member of this site chose to offer his help and I deferred to him. With regards to the fonts issue you might try copying or installing windows fonts directly on to your Mac 

You can move the fonts using the following steps:

  1. To export the fonts from Windows:     Open Fonts by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
  2. Click and drag the Fonts you want to export to your Desktop or another folder
  3. Copy these fonts to a flash drive to move to the Mac


You might also try as an alternative to Wine a program called Crossover MAC from Codeweavers:

Using e-Sword 11.2.2 on Mac with Wine Stable 4.0 and it runs great, but the fonts are not rendering properly (none of them).


Does anyone have a fix/suggestion?


Thanks in advance

Are you running the windows version on a Mac or E-Sword X which is the mac version?

In Topic: Renaming a Bible

20 March 2019 - 10:17 AM

I am sorry if this is covered already, I looked but did not find anything.


I have gotten peculiar as I have gotten old and want things a certain way.


in E-sword in the Bibles some are capitalized and some not, I went through the E-sword directory and renamed all of the Bibles that were not properly capitalized, this helped several bibles but a couple refused to capitalize.


cjb and csb refused to show up capitalized.


I think the problem is in the bible module itself, I looked for an E-sword tool to edit bible modules but did not find one, all I want to do is make all of the bibles in E-sword show up capitalized.


is there an editing utility that will let me do that?


Also in the bibles section of E-sword they are not sorting alphabetically, the NIRV comes ahead of the NIV and JSP comes before JPS and the VW is down in the B's 


and some others are the same, 


maybe I am being too picky, but it bugs me that that it is not all alphabetized in sequence and capitalized.


Thank you.


The tabs used in the e-Sword bible window can be renamed using the e-Sword Tab Renamer Tool you can download this tool at this link:



The alphabetical order of the modules depends on how the bible modules are named in your e-Sword folder on your computer. In the case of the NIV and NIRV windows alphabetized them based on the third letter with R coming before V in the alphabet. I am not sure what is causing your other issues.

If you want to get in to more detailed module editing there is the module creation tool called e-Sword Tooltip 

In Topic: Will updating an existing e-Sword overwrite all I currently have?

20 March 2019 - 09:58 AM

Thanks for the tip Tj Higgins.  Now to figure out how to do just that. :wacko: :huh:

Is the newer version worth going through all the work?

To back everything up just copy and paste all of your modules and note to a flash drive.

If you are already running e-Sword 11.05 there won't be much difference with the latest update which is 11.2
