Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement
Hi clarval.

Sorry if that has come up before, but: Is it right that the new MacSword does not recognise the ".swd" modules in the same subdir as the application (in my case: /Applications/Macsword/Modules)? When I try to re-install modules, they are placed in ~/Library/Application Support/Sword, and are split up over subdirs, just as in Linux. I liked the ‘canned’ .swd files much better and the drag and drop installation much maccier. But maybe I'm missing something?

The module installer installs to the folder you mentioned.
However the .swd files are still supported. We can extend that to recognize also modules in the application folder. But that is not done at the moment. Only .swd files at
~/Library/Application Support/Sword are recognized.

On a related note: Changing the SwordModulePath in the Preferences file does not change anything; but I'd really like to install modules outside my home directory, as that way I can avoid inflating my File Vault (and, really, Bible texts needn't be hidden). Would it be difficult to implement some preference setting for this in the installer (‘install modules globally’ or just: ‘installation path’)?

That's possible, yes.
I've planed adding multiple user defined module paths in preferences.
Not sure if this will make it into 2.0 however.

To not only be negative: the inferface looks really great; I'm looking forward to testing it.
