Installing modules
Both MacSword 1.4.x and MacSword 2.x have a module installer facility included that will download and install selected modules.
This module installer is found in the main menu of the application.
One thing to note here is that you have to "refresh" new "install sources". Also if you start the application for the first time you need to first refresh the listed install sources.
Refreshing will actually download the list of modules from the repository server.

Installing new modules with the module installer is easy:
Choose "Module installer..." from the main menu.
Select the "CrossWire" install source (or another one if you have) and refresh it.
When finished, select it again and choose your module you want to install by choosing the "Install" task in the "Task" column of the table.
Then click "Process tasks" in the toolbar.
When finihed, the modules should be available in the "Module list" window.

If you plan to install modules manually by downloading from the CrossWire web page you need to unpack the download and place them in this folder:
/Users/<yourlogin>/Library/Application Support/Sword

This folder should get created automatically on the first run of the application, so just place your modules there.
