Thanks JPG. I followed the link to the instructions on using ITunes to transfer the file. That worked.

Is there a way to search for highlighted text?

#35731 View PDF files within e-Sword

Posted by GWSwordUser on 01 April 2019 - 03:54 PM

Is there a way to view pdf files within e-Sword or convert them to a topx module? I tried converting a pdf to a rtf, that looked ok, but then it lost a lot of formatting when the rtf was opened in ToolTip Tool NT.

Despite my doubts and misunderstanding I followed your suggestion of upgrading to 11.2.2 and then using the e-Sword PC to Apple Converter to convert my MLV2019.bblx to MLV2019.bbli. This fixed my problem when using the Extended Bible search. I apologize for doubting you. Thank you for your help.

When I perform a word search the Extended Bible Search function why do some of the resulting verses look normal, like this:


Psa_72:14  (ASV)  He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence; And precious will their blood be in his sight:


and some display codes, like this:


Psa_74:2  (ASV)  Remember thy congregation, which thou hast gotten of old, Which thou hast redeemed to be the tribe of thine inheritance; {\cf15\i And} mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.


or this:


Psa_18:1  (NASB)  {\b For the choir director. A {\cf15\I Psalm} of David the servant of the LORD, who spoke to the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. And he said,} "I love You, O LORD, my strength."



or even worse, like this:


Job_30:15  (NET)  Terrors are turned loose{\cf6\super 34} on me;\par \tab they drive away{\cf6\super 35} my honor like the wind,\par \tab and like a cloud my deliverance has passed away.\par


and this:


Job_5:4  (MLV)  \viewkind4\uc1\ltrpar\nowidctlpar\tx720\tx1440\tx2160\tx2880\tx3600\tx4320\tx5040\tx5760\tx6480\tx7200\tx7920\tx8640\tx9360\tx10080\lang1033\f0\fs22 His sons are far from safety and they are crushed in the gate. Neither is there any to deliver them, \cf0\i0\b0\ulnone\nosupersub


Is there a setting I can change to avoid this? Thanks for your help.




#31908 Resource and User File locations

Posted by GWSwordUser on 26 November 2017 - 11:59 AM

I have my locations for the resources and user files pointed to my OneDrive folder. This is supposed to allow me to view notes I made on my laptop to appear on my desktop since both devices use the same resource folders. However, I have found that this does not work perfectly all the time. Many times I have to restart e-Sword or reset the resource folders repeatedly on each device for the notes I made on one to appear on the other. Does anyone have any suggestions for this minor irritation?



#24415 Airdrop

Posted by GWSwordUser on 28 March 2015 - 06:13 AM

Unless its somewhere I haven't found, e-Sword LT doesn't have study or topic notes, or sadly the ability to create them. If I want to take a note while the preacher is preaching I have to use another Bible app.

#24411 Airdrop

Posted by GWSwordUser on 27 March 2015 - 06:05 PM

I got it to work. I have an IPod and my wife has an IPad. Both have their latest respective e-Sword updates and the latest IOS versions. I found some instructions about AirDrop here: https://support.appl.../en-us/HT201369


Turn on AirDrop on both the sending and the receiving device. (Follow the instructions at the above site.) Then select Resources under the settings button on the sending device. Scroll to the bottom and you will see a section titled 'User Files.' You will see that these have the AirDrop symbol by them. Tap the resource you wish to share. The receiving device will pop up a message asking the receiver if they wish to accept the AirDrop. If they accept it the resource will be transferred.


I did it with something simple first, the highlights. I had highlighted a verse on the sending device and it was now highlighted on the receiving device. I don't know if the receiver's entire highlight file was over written, because they didn't have any highlights prior to the AirDrop. Or perhaps just that one verse highlight was transferred. It seems to me that if someone were sharing a picture from their device with a friend you wouldn't want all of the senders pictures over writing the receivers. But I have no idea how Rick Meyers configured e-Sword HD and LT.


I hope this helps. I was at first hoping that this would be a way of syncing my desktop e-Sword with my IPod, but it turns out to be only between Apple devices. I guess you can use the same resources between computers if you put the resources in the cloud and configure e-Sword to look for its resources in that cloud directory. But I don't know of a way of telling my IPod to look at the cloud storage for its resources. Right now I sync between desktop and IPod with iFunbox.


I will watch this post for a few days to see if anyone has any questions.



#21273 Bible Reading Plans - Chronologically Thematic One Year Reading Plan

Posted by GWSwordUser on 02 June 2014 - 06:36 PM

File Name: Chronologically Thematic One Year Reading Plan

File Submitter: GWSwordUser

File Submitted: 02 Jun 2014

File Category: Bible Reading Plans

Author: Katherine S. Fedor
e-Sword Version: 9.x - 10.x

This is a one year Bible reading plan which arranges the various chapters of the Bible in both chronological and thematic fashion. In the author's words, "Starting at Genesis 1, this plan moves chronologically through the Bible but when a weighty person, place or theme is mentioned, other parts of Scripture are read along side to go more in depth with the person, place or theme. Thus there are both Old Testament and New Testament passages all year, but they relate to each other thematically. For example, you will find the introduction to Adam at the beginning of Genesis, then follow mentions of Adam through select chapters from Romans, Hosea, 1 Timothy, etc. before continuing with Genesis."

The plan covers every chapter in the Bible. It is a six day a week reading plan. It can be started at any point in the year but if you start on January 1, you will notice that some special readings break into the current theme which coincide roughly with calendar events. This is described further in the information pane which can be viewed by clicking the right mouse button and selecting Information from the context menu.

The plan was developed by Katherine S. Fedor and is used by permission. Her other plans can be found at TreasureInTheBible.com
