In Topic: refi files

05 December 2018 - 08:43 AM



In case you read this....  When I create Commentaries and Reference Works I always save

the .rtf source file in my e-Sword sub-directory where the e-Sword program is located.  Then,

when I compile the .cmtx, cmti, refx or .refi modules, e-Sword doesn;'t usually have any trouble

finding the module.  Of course, sometimes, for whatever reason, ToolTip NT will save the update

to the ToolTip subdirectory instead.  Then I have to go looking for it and copy the updated module

to the proper subdirectory so that the updated module actually shows up properly in e-Sword.

In Topic: Problems with e-Sword version 11.2.2

26 November 2018 - 10:10 AM

I have been a e-Sword fanatic ever since the very beginning.


Now, I have been stumped for some time.  Here is the problem:


Upgraded to the latest Version of e-Sword and the ToolTip Creator by BH.

When I load my .rtf file into the TooTip, it doesn't show the Path and Filename at the Top.

But, that's not the only problem.  I am creating a Book collection of Charles Spurgeon's

Works.  The problem here is that Hyperlinks don't work when creating an ..refi (HD) Module.

I create the proper Bookmark, then create the Hyperlink in the Table of Contents to take

the user to the Bookmark where a particular book is located, and it doesn't work.


What gives?  I have been creating e-Sword user for a long time and cannot figure out

why Hyperlinks don't take me to the Bookmark.  For instance, each book in the Spurgeon

Book Collection would idealy have it's own bookmark that coincides with that book's lisiing

in the Table of Contents.  When I click on the Hyperlink in the Table of Contents, the little

window pops up reminding the User to Hit ''Control" and CLICK with the Mouse.   Nothing

happens!!  It just sits there and looks at me.  I thought this problem would go away when 

the HTML capability was added to e-Sword. 


For those who have downloaded the latest Version of Spurgeon's Book Collection dated

11/26/18, would you check out the first link in the Table of Contents and let me know if it

works for you?  I am fully aware of how to create and Internal Link, and external Link and

Bookmarks.  Haven't tried created external links, because I'm still wrestling with this 

problem of getting the Hyperlinks to work for the Bookmark(s).....


Any solutions?   I'd appreciate your comments.   Thanks....

What TJ Higgins says is right.  Use the Tooltip Editor to easily Crete modules.  I have been preaching for 40 years.  Creating modules for as word is one of the easiest things I have ever done...There is a great PDF help file for the editor that will make it so-so easy.  If you are a programmer, you will have no excuse for not creating modules for as word.  Just make sure you teach the truth, or you (me too) will face a much stricter judgment....

In Topic: Esword module convert to Wordsearch 12

22 July 2018 - 11:28 AM

In Wordsearch 12 simply Mouse Click on the Main menu option "File"

Then click on the pull-down menu option "User Book"

If you select Commentary, it will only allow you to create a "Verse-by-Verse"

Commentary.   You then will have to copy and paste the information from

e-Sword into the User Book you have just created.......  I've done it a few times,

but takes awhile......
