#43554 Create modules without Tooltip

Posted by modulist on 07 October 2022 - 11:31 AM

In addition to what Katoog has said, a very important tag is:


<ref>Mat 1:1</ref>


This creates "tool tipped" scripture references. Unlike in the Windows version, these must not have an underscore in between the book and chapter:verse reference. So don't write Mat_1:1, or the reference won't work. However, it will appear underlined automatically in e-Sword for Mac/iOS/Android.


I have indeed created resources using an DB Browser for SQLite on the Mac. It takes more technical knowhow to do it, obviously, but it can be done. Katoog has given you some good advice to get you started.

#42939 Klaas Schilder 3 Volume Set (V1 - Christ in His Suffering) font problem

Posted by modulist on 20 June 2022 - 05:09 PM

Try these files instead—they have been converted to .refi format. Assuming you're not using an ancient version of e-Sword, they will work fine, and you won't have this "redacted document" effect anymore. And no it's not just you, because I just downloaded the original files and I saw the very same thing. But I saw no issues with these converted files.

#42898 Is there an ESV version I can download?

Posted by modulist on 10 June 2022 - 07:45 PM

Actually, the ESV+ module, which can be downloaded from within e-Sword, contains the cross-references and footnotes. If I remember correctly, it's part of the ESV download; that is, both the regular ESV and the ESV+ download together.

#42480 Common features I wish e-Sword had...

Posted by modulist on 05 March 2022 - 11:01 AM

It could be that Tomnahurich is using the Mac version of e-Sword—they didn't specify which version they were using. On the Mac, when you open the Reference Library, it will come back to the topic that you last were looking at, but does not go back to your last position in that topic. Instead it starts at the top again. I'm not sure why Rick Meyers didn't put that feature in the Mac version.


The same goes for the iOS versions. I don't know about Android, but my guess would be that it works the same as the Mac and iOS versions—that is, it doesn't remember your last position in the last Reference Book you were reading.

#42351 E-Sword modules create with HTML?

Posted by modulist on 16 February 2022 - 08:06 PM

Tooltip NT can be used to save modules in HTML format. All you have to do is save your module as an Apple formatted module. These are HTML based, and can, in fact, be used in all versions of e-Sword, including the Windows version, as long as you have at least version 11.

#42229 Uninstall modules?

Posted by modulist on 25 January 2022 - 08:36 PM

To uninstall any module in e-Sword follow the instructions below:


On MacOS: choose File>Resources>Delete... from the menubar. Select whichever module you would like to delete, then click "Delete." In the dialog asking if you are sure, click "Delete." When you're done deleting stuff, click "Cancel" at the bottom of the list of your resources.


On Windows: choose Options>Resource Settings... from the menubar. Right-click on whichever module you would like to delete and choose "Delete Resource Permanently" (the only option available). In the dialog asking if you're sure, click "Yes." When you're done, click "OK" at the bottom of the list of your resources.


On iOS: tap on the menu icon at the top left of the screen. Choose "Resources" from the options shown (you will probably have to swipe down to nearly the bottom of the list). Tap whichever module you'd like to delete, and then choose "Delete" at the top left of the screen. Again, you will be asked if you are sure. Tap "Delete" to confirm that you are sure (or "Cancel" if you're not).


I have no experience with the new Android version of e-Sword, but I expect that the procedure is similar to that used in iOS.


I hope this gives you the information you need.

#41701 HOW TO: Modules not available in iPhone version

Posted by modulist on 20 October 2021 - 09:25 AM

I would also add, in addition to the instructions that JPG has given you above, that if you have a Mac, a very easy way to transfer your e-Sword resources from your Mac to your iPhone is to Airdrop them from your Mac to your iPhone. When you do this, and you choose to open the files in e-Sword LT on your iPhone, the resources will automatically be added to e-Sword and will show up right away, even if e-Sword is already open on your iPhone—in other words, no restart of e-Sword required.


So, if you have a Mac (which you do) and you know how to Airdrop, this is the easiest way to get e-Sword resources on your iPhone.

#41582 Please help

Posted by modulist on 01 October 2021 - 09:55 AM

I'm computer illiterate. Could some one PLEASE HELP. I have a major problem...I'm involved with 2 different Christian firms, the 1 is called BibleSuppot.com who supplies all of the files, etc, and the other, e-Sword.net, receives the downloads and installations from BibleSupport.com and use them as programs. Now, where the major problem is that e-Sword is not receiving and all of the files are coming directly to me and/or often to both at the same time and can't be opened. How could I change that?

Once before I had help to download and install Thompson's Chain Reference ("dictionary")


Something that would probably help you out greatly is the e-Sword Module Installer, which can be found here:




All the instructions you need to use this program can be found at this link. This utility makes it very easy to get resources you download from this or any other site into e-Sword.


This is all assuming that you are using the Windows operating system.

#41557 Making a Gospel of John word list

Posted by modulist on 25 September 2021 - 03:46 PM

Hi M. Jaillet


There is a command right within e-Sword itself that may be of use to you. First, choose the translation you want to use in the Bible pane (and, for convenience, set the active verse to John 1:1). Then, choose from the menu bar Bible-->Analyze Verses... A dialog will show up from which you can choose the range of verses that it will analyze. In your case, you would choose Joh 1:1 to 21:25, then click "Analyze." This will show you a list of every word contained in your verse range (in this case, the whole gospel of John), starting from the most occurring word to the least. Then, select the first word shown in the list and scroll down to the bottom of the list and shift-click the last word in the list. Then you should click the little button just above the word list (which is just to the right of "include Strong's numbers", which copies the selected words from the list. You can then paste the entire list into a text editor or whatever program you happen to prefer.


I'm not sure if this is what you were thinking of, but I hope it is helpful nonetheless.

#41173 retrieving and importing my study notes into e-sword 2021

#41105 E-Sword Modules on IPad Pro

Posted by modulist on 17 June 2021 - 09:39 AM

Well, here I am again, needing some answers.  Does anyone know where E-Sword Modules are stored on IPad Pro?  And, is there a way to see them.  Thanks.


Dr. Wade Bridges


Unfortunately, there is no way to directly access installed e-Sword modules on iPad (or on any iOS device for that matter).


If you mean personal e-Sword files (like study notes, bookmarks, reading plans, etc.), these can be accessed using file sharing in iTunes (if you are using Windows or MacOS versions prior to 10.15 Catalina) or using the Finder in MacOS 10.5 (Catalina) or 11 (Big Sur). Another option (if you have a Mac) is to airdrop those personal files using e-Sword itself on your iPad. In the settings, go to "Resources." At the very bottom of the list you'll see your user files. Tap the AirDrop or Share icon at the right side of the item you want to send. Make sure, of course, that WiFi and Bluetooth are turned on, on both your Mac and your iOS device. Choose your Mac in the list of people you can AirDrop to. On your Mac, choose to accept the incoming file.


I hope this helps.

#41063 Commentaries - Quotes from the Old Testament in the New (Apple Module)

Posted by modulist on 11 June 2021 - 11:19 AM

File Name: Quotes from the Old Testament in the New (Apple Module)

File Submitter: modulist

File Submitted: 11 Jun 2021

File Category: Commentaries

e-Sword Version: Requires 10.1+

This module is very handy to quickly and easily find out where a scripture quoted in the New Testament is originally found in the Old Testament. It works both ways: (1) if you are currently on a verse in the NT that contains a quote from the OT, the commentary will show where it is from in the OT; (2) if you are currently on a verse in the OT that is quoted in the NT, then the commentary will show you where it is quoted in the NT.

This module is formatted for use on Apple Devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch) or on e-Sword 11+ on Windows.
