Re: couple questions...
Hello

... a list of bible verses in the search engine and that list would come up in the translation selected. To go one step further, I accidentally pasted the list in a commentary module and just the comments on those specific verses appeared! That was a real bonus.

You can also add multiple bibles and commentaries into one view.
Have a look at those screenshots:

First, is there a way to have the full module names on the lefthand column? I tried renaming the modules themselves in the modules folder, but that only messed things up. Probably because the paths were renamed...

That's not possible in MacSword but I believe it is possible to change the module name in the modules .conf file. It should be enough to change the name in brackets [] at the top of the file.


Secondly, is there a way that the session can be saved so that each module is open to the specific topic being studied? For example, if I toggle between tabs in a window from Thompson Chain Reference to Calvin's Institutes or International Standard Bible Encyclopedia. And I am studying the word "Church". They will remain on that word, until I click to another tab and then when I go back it will have reset itself at the beginning of the module. This is true for when I am currently working in Macsword, or when I "Save a Session" and go open it up later. It remembers the modules, just not the place in the module I was reading. Is there a way for me to do this?

This is one our todo list but not possible at this time.


By the way... will this software work on an iPad? I don't have one, nor would I get one for another generation or two, but it is in the back of my mind.

Have a look at PocketSword:
