Re: Module doesn't work like others
I'll preface this by saying I am not a MacSword user, but try to help where I can.

First, you should be running the latest MacSword from sourceforge. This will be 1.3.x, where x is a number like 3, 4, 5....

Your modules should be located at /Users/YourID/Library/Application Support/Sword. The modules can be either in a *.swd or in mods.d and modules. The latter is the SWORD standard and will allow other SWORD applications, such as BibleDesktop, to use the modules.

You can also use Eloquent (from MacSword's sourceforge page) as a module downloader. This will put modules where MacSword and BibleDesktop expects them.

If that still does not work, go into preferences and make sure that the location is on the Sword path. I don't remember what that is called offhand.

To read the module, you'll need to open the tray on the right to get to the "table of contents" and click through there to get to the different sections.

Hope this helps.
