#37190 Download problem

Posted by APsit190 on 06 January 2020 - 01:17 PM

Hi, I want to add more modules to my e-sword on my laptop, but when I click on the "Download" tab, the only section I can click on is the last tab: "Proxy Settings". The rest are showing as pale colouring, not clickable. What is stopping me from being able to click those and add more modules?

Its not an e-Sword Problem. Seems like a problem with WiFi.


Suggest you get a hold  of an Ethernet Cable, bang one end into your laptop, and the other end into your Modem/Router in one of the four ports where it says, "Ethernet." Ensure you  have your WiFi turned off on your laptop before you do the Ethernet Cable thingy, and then reconnect  and log into your network.


Trust this will help you.


Blessings and a Happy New Year.

#36760 E-Sword for low vision

Posted by APsit190 on 06 October 2019 - 05:51 PM

Two ways you can fix this:

  1. On the tool bar, click on the Zoom button on the Bible Toolbar. But if that doesn't help, then...
  2. Option 2. Click on the Options Menu, and click on Fonts, and then change the default font size to that which you prefer. This will change the size of your font in Bibles, Commentaries, and Dictionaries windows.

#36588 modules on Septuagint?

Posted by APsit190 on 02 September 2019 - 02:48 PM


Thanks so much for the files. How do I get them to work on e-sword?


This particular resource that is being talked about doesn't work in e-Sword due to the fact they weren't made for it. It was made for a program called MyBible (or something similar).


I fell into that trap by automatically thinking it was for e-Sword quite some time ago.

#36102 Verse corrections needed for e-Sword LT

Posted by APsit190 on 30 June 2019 - 09:56 PM

e-Sword LT has soap spelled as sope and e-Sword X has it correctly as soap, I just wanted to point that out incase someone can correct it for the LT version.



Jer 2:22  For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine iniquity is marked before me, saith the Lord GOD.



Mal 3:2  But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:

#36082 Is there a way to convert older modules to the new E-Sword?

Posted by APsit190 on 27 June 2019 - 06:35 PM

Just wondering - my computer crashed and I had to download the latest E-Sword. Now, my JL Dagg and John Gill reference works won't open in E-Sword.


Can these be converted easily?

Below is a video which answers your query.


What is shared in this video only applies to both Topic and Study Notes used in old versions of e-Sword prior to version 9 and above. This would include Topic Note resources by JL Dagg, and John Gill resources.


That said, when it comes to Commentary (cmt) resources by Dagg and/or Gill, you will need to have the converter for them.

#35943 Historical e-Sword Versions

Posted by APsit190 on 23 May 2019 - 08:36 PM

Hi to all e-Sword nutters like me who think, believe, and just know that e-Sword just happens to be the best Bible program in the world. You know, totally one eyed about e-Sword, that so much so you're gonna have to kill me in order to use something pathetically else  :lol:  B),


Below is a list of all e-Sword versions that I've kept over the years:


e-Sword 8.06

e-Sword 9.51

e-Sword 9.60

e-Sword 9.71

e-Sword 9.72

e-Sword 9.81

e-Sword 9.82

e-Sword 9.83

e-Sword 9.90

e-Sword 9.91

e-Sword 10.01

e-Sword 10.04

e-Sword 10.05

e-Sword 10.07

e-Sword 10.10

e-Sword 10.20

e-Sword 10.21

e-Sword 10.30

e-Sword 10.40

e-Sword 11.04

e-Sword 11.06

e-Sword 11.10

e-Sword 11.21

e-Sword 11.22


Now, here's the big favor/favour (depending on which country you come from) thingy. If you have a greater collection of previous versions of e-Sword than what is listed above, meaning versions I don't have in that list, please send me a message, or e-mail me giving details of what versions you have against what I don't have, and I'll provide you my snail mail address, could you send me a DVD or CD of those missing versions that I don't have.


Of those who are collectors of historical versions of  e-Sword, do not have any one of the versions in the  above list, ad would like a copy, either e-mail or send me a message with your snail mail address and let me know what version(s) of e-Sword you want for your collection.


Amazing what some people do as a hobby.


Thanks in advance for any help you can give.




#35689 Is there a Bible that can be edited?

Posted by APsit190 on 25 March 2019 - 04:49 PM

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

Actually that is what e-Sword does. You have the Study Note editor which acts like a wide margin in an actual Wide Margin edition of the Bible, and you have a Topic Note editor which acts like a note page one can insert in a Loose Lead (Wide Margin) edition of the Bible. The beaut thing with the Study note editor, you can sync your notes with the verse that you are making notes on.


Not only that, you can also underline and/or highlight text in the Bible Window. 


With that said, I think what you are looking for is to put notes in the Bible Window, of which e-Sword doesn't have that capability. That said, the Study Note editor serves really well for making notes on verses, editing and/or deleting them.

#35404 Tool tip to multiple strongs numbers in dictionary file

Posted by APsit190 on 22 February 2019 - 01:25 PM

Sometimes a definition is equated to multiple strongs numbers.


I have tried something like..




├ĚH301; H1351; H1352





And instead of giving three lookups it is giving one lookup with all three. which really doesnt match anything.


Any idea how to solve this?



Of what you are trying to do or achieve, will not work in e-Sword. Tooltips will only work on a "one at a time" basis. This means that one cannot, for a lack of a better way to describe it, combine three or four Strong numbers to appear as a single tooltip with each giving its own definition. And the main reason for this is that e-Sword has not been programmed to output such a method. And that is primarily where its at.


To be able to get something like that to happen, an array needs to be added in e-Sword's code, in where it multiple Strong references can appear with their own definition as a single tooltip, looking something like this:











can appear.


At the moment no such an array is in e-Sword's code.


Sorry I can't be of much better help than that.




#35260 Can anyone explain how Dropbox can be used with e-Sword

Posted by APsit190 on 03 February 2019 - 03:29 AM

You added for which I am grateful. I think I might have gotten the solution by much "more" trial and error. I'll report back definitively when I am sure. Thanks!

Watch video which will help you how you can get Dropbox to work in e-Sword.

I am just curious...since I don't have mysword...and I don't have a device that could use such an app. I was thinking about getting a tablet and getting an app or program to run on it. 1.What do you think I need in the way of minimum spec. on a tablet? 2.What are the alternatives to mysword?

MyBible is as far better program than MySword when it actually comes to freeware. The bottomline with MySword, despite the fact that it still has a long way to go in making it a really good and effective freeware Bible study tool, is that it's not crippleware, unlike MySword is.


Here is the extreme the developers has crippled the "free" version of MySword.

  • Unable to cut, copy and paste
  • Unable to print.

The very basics of any half decent program to be able to do has been cut out. You seriously can't make this stuff up, and shows ludicracy that the MySword developers have gone to by crippling the program. And if you want these basic features, you have to pay them for it.


Personally, I really don't care about the rest of the features they cut out in the "freeware" version, as I wouldn't use them. However, to cut out the basic needs of a program, and so to cripple it to such an extent, to where you can't really do anything with it, is stupidity taken to an extreme.


So, regarding what you want on a Tablet is going to be dependant on what platform is you want. So here are the three, with my recommendation for Bible Software:

  1.  Windows Surface Pro. e-Sword
  2. iPad. e-Sword HT
  3. Android. With regard to tablets and other mobile devices, Samsung's Galaxy Tab, or Galaxy Note 9, or Galaxy S9 phone - MyBible

I'll add a bonus recommendation, which is, regarding Apple's macBook, and macBook Pro - e-Sword X


I trust that you will find this helpful.





Posted by APsit190 on 24 January 2019 - 04:46 PM

MySword is not my main Bible study program, but e-Sword is. That said, MySword is there on my Tablet and Phone because I can do some reading, and take notes to share. Beyond that, I find that MySword is nowhere as effective as e-Sword when it comes to Bible study.


Moreover, the freeware version of MySword is nothing more than crippleware. And to call it "freeware," is nothing more than an insult to creators of  fully capable freeware Bible Study software (applications). 


By the way, telling the developers of MySword that the freeware version is nothing more than crippleware is not a welcomed type of feedback they like or want. All they want is just the gloss and the hype.

#34861 About the TDNT

Posted by APsit190 on 13 December 2018 - 09:05 PM

To all and sundry and etc,


Due to the fact that over the years there has been quite a bit of discussion about the TDNT (and you could also include the TWOT), and the requests for it to be made available as a resource for e-Sword, I thought I would do something that was quite a nerve wracking experience.


I emailed the publisher. Totally unreal. I have to admit that this was quite a scary thing to do, but one the less I did it. So without further ado, here is the incriminating evidence:


To whom this may be directed to

Dear Sir/Madam,
This is a request for the TDNT unabridged edition to be made available for e-Sword. This request is not merely a result of  my own wishes, or because I'm a huge supporter and user of e-Sword despite that being a fact, but rather it comes more so as a result of the number of requests made on the e-Sword Users' support website, BibleSupport.com

This request and inquiry is not an official request, and I do not represent e-Sword in any official or unofficial capacity, but rather that as a user of the product and a supporter of it.
e-Sword is perhaps the most popular free Bible Study software in the world. This is, by no means, an exaggerated claim, as it can be measured by the number of users and members of BibleSupport.com, of which it has a membership of 207,760 e-Sword users. Of what the actual numbers of e-Sword users there are internationally, one could estimate it as perhaps over 1 million plus.

With that said, e-Sword is a serious Bible study tool, which has perhaps the largest repository of free resources, of which the overwhelming majority of them have been created by members of BibleSupport.com.

Some of the free titles that users enjoy are:
  • Study Notes on the Holy Scriptures
  • College Press Bible Study Textbook
  • Cambridge Greek Testament for Schools and Colleges

Just to name a mere few.

Of the premium resources e-Sword users have access to are:
  • New International Commentary of the Old Testament
  • New International Commentary of the New Testament
  • Believers Bible Commentary
  • Bible Knowledge Commentary
Just to name a mere few.

So, as you can see, just by a few samples of titles of what is available for e-Sword, makes this program a very serious study tool for  Bible College, University, and Seminary students. But also for Pastors and Academics, of which there a quite number of them using the program. Therefore, to have the  unabridged edition of the TDNT as part of the e-Sword library would be regarded as a huge and prestigious honor.

Thank you for your time, and await your reply.

Respectfully yours,

Stephen Jovanovic.


Now, I hope for a reply, and  will post up here when I get if.
