uninstall to reinstall
Could someone tell me all the steps to uninstalling Macsword? I want a clean sweep to reinstall, as as a new Mac user, am still finding bits and pieces. Thanks, Dot

Re: uninstall to reinstall
It depends on how you installed it. If you installed the folder with the readme, then drag the folder to the trash. If you just installed MacSword, then throw that into the trash.

If you have MacSword permanently in your Dock, just drag it off and poof the short cut will be gone.

MacSword keeps its settings in ~/Library/Application Support/MacSword and modules in ~/Library/Application Support/Sword. If you plan on re-installing MacSword, I'd recommend keeping these, otherwise you can drag them to the trash as well.

Yes. Thank you. I did find it and others. As I am very new to my iMac it took me awhile but got them all.
