#30729 Bible Reading Plan

Posted by DSaw on 18 May 2017 - 12:56 PM

Many Thanks DSaw.

Let me explain what I am doing:

I have a reading plan to read the book of Acts 5 times per week for one month. That gives me 28 readings. My question is thus; Will Esword show me the whole reading that I must complete for the day ie chapter 3 and 4 or only chapter 3? What happens if I get behind?

eSword only goes down to a month so it would only plan one reading of acts in the month

 

20 chapters of acts a day to read the book of Acts 5 times in a week is a lot at least for me it is 

 

listening to the whole book of acts would take 2:18:00, 2 hrs 18 min

Yes, OK, much appreciated. I'll type it in and make the corrections as I go. See you in about 10 years, God bless. ~ esn

 

if you can part with a public domain copy (the book will be unbound "lost") one of us can scan it then OCR it when it is OCR'd many words about 80% and up will be accurate to the original saving you allot of time 

 

a doc can be made of the resulting OCR so you can use the original scan to proof the doc

What’s the best way to get a hold of or make a digital, i.e., workable document, to use in module building or whatever; maybe a local service since I have no real equipment. .... ?

 

 

If A digital copy Can not be found the next step is to find a Public domain version of the book in print 

 

Below is a public domain version of the book.

 

is this the book ?

https://www.amazon.c...tions jr graves

 

then the book must be scanned in to make it digital but that is the easy part then it must be OCR'd then proofed against the original that is very time consuming then it is relatively easy with T4 to

convert the text to eSword format

 

If it is just digital you want so it can be read on devices a pdf can be made from the scanned images

Highlight the link including the spaces before and after the link press delete

#28984 What's Still Broken As Of e-Sword 11.06?

Posted by DSaw on 27 September 2016 - 09:01 AM

Hi journey

 

I'm replying open forum so my facts can be corrected if wrong

 

I have tried every version from 11.0.0. up except one version which I can not remember right now, and each time have gone back to 10.4

As you! also I have started using TheWord and MySword more often, as currently I'm using eSword to build an Englishman's concordance plus module

 

I long hoped that Rick would abandon his underlining text control for a more modern engine which would allow more customization and work better with HTML TheWord and MySword both use HTML (correct ?) and they do not have the restrictions that eSword has

 

As of eSword 11.0 + I no longer like the look and feel and especially the loss of drag and drop in eSword and as of right now, there is no way to customize it to my liking the reason, I like MySword & TheWord  as they are  customizable to the way I study and the look and feel I like.

 

I'm using MySword for study prep because of mySword's bible markup features more and more though I'm using MySword to study with. (which I thought would not happen)

 

I do not Know there may come a point where staying with eSword 10.4 is not practical and a switching totally to a new study program is warranted many here have already switched to other bible study programs but still create modules for eSword

 

 

I think I have said this before somewhere, for me I'ts just wait and see

#28288 Encountering a copy/paste issue with e-Sword v11

Posted by DSaw on 18 July 2016 - 04:54 PM

I use Notepad++ as my text editor to write letters, and copy verses from eSword with it's 'Copy Verses' utility.  For the past 5 years this has worked very well, but with eSword v11 the copy function doesn't seem to work.  Usually I just use my mouse buttons, but I've also tried to use the keyboard shortcuts and the results are the same.  It appears to 'copy' the verses, but when I go to post them onto the text editor nothing transfers.

 

Does anyone else have this problem, or is this a new feature and not a bug?  Thanks for your feedback.

 

 

Yes I have similar issues I could drag a drop Now I have to copy and paste special into Word and even that is twitchy so much so that I reverted back to an earlier e-Sword I will see how things have progressed when I finish the first part of my current project

#28149 Features I would like to see in the new e-Sword

Posted by DSaw on 08 July 2016 - 06:11 AM

Ability to open multiple windows with in e-Sword

 

I would like to have the ability to open multiple dictionaries, commentaries, etc.

 

these windows would all be resizable 




#28148 Features I would like to see in the new e-Sword

Posted by DSaw on 08 July 2016 - 06:11 AM

A full featured module creation tool

 

Brent’s ToolTipTool is one of if not the single most important tools for e-Sword but I’m thinking that there will may have be a switch to another program language

 

Then the question would be will Brent know the new language or even be willing to develop a T4 for the new language

 

what ever happens a creation tool is needed A conversion tool would be a good stop gap but as I have seen with conversion across languages some features are not converted or are not able to be utilized 




#28147 Features I would like to see in the new e-Sword

Posted by DSaw on 08 July 2016 - 06:11 AM

Traditional interlinear formatting ability




#28119 Can you "bunch" multiple books by author in refx ?

Posted by DSaw on 03 July 2016 - 09:48 PM

I realize this is not a super important problem. It is however time consuming to scroll down through 45 books of John Piper to find one by someone whose name begins with R.

 

     

The authors with the + in front of their name would all be lined up evenly unless they were expanded.to reveal all of the material.

Any help?

 

 

Hi pastorcliff

 

in the ref window to the right of the titles drop-down window there is a text box type in the author you want press enter

 

and only the books from that author will appear in the drop-down

 

clear the box press enter to return to the full list
