daily devotions?
So, I can't find any daily devotions on this thing. So far though, I'm absolutely LOVING it. I'm loving all the free books on this thing.

I'm perplexed about the daily devotions. Is it a Module that I have to install?

Re: daily devotions?
ok, I figured it out. I had to download the devotional from the website first, couldn't find anything on the auto installer built into MacSword.

Brad,

You will find information on the module installer on this:
http://www.crosswire.org/wiki/Frontends:MacSword
and this:
http://www.macsword.com/tour/
web page. Where on the latter there is a screen cast video.

We have daily devotion modules but there is not yet a good way to display daily devotions in term of a devotion for every day.
Will come soon.

Re: daily devotions?
yeah, that's what I used to figure out how to make sure it was installed properly. I had to kind of toy with it to figure some of it out though.

The only thing that made me confused was why I couldn't find the daily devotions on the module installer, I actually had to go to the website and manually download them.

Now that the macsword, with this update, will remember where my place was at on each module, the daily devotion thing is actually kind of cool, it will just take me to the same place, then I just switch to the next day.

When you say you're working on it, what are the plans for them?

The daily devotion modules are actually dictionary modules and should be listed under those in the module installer.

Unfortunately this "remembering" doesn't yet work for dictionaries.
I admit that this would be a good improvement and I'll see into implementing this.

Well, we're investigating what would be an appropriate way to display your daily devotion when you start MacSword. The normal dictionary view which you have to use now is not appropriate for daily devotions.
Maybe it will be some kind of HUD window that only shows the devotion for today and maybe has some limited navigation functionality that let's you switch the days and months.

Re: daily devotions?
oops, yep, you're right. I just closed it and opened it and it brought up the same thing again for some of the windows, I didn't realize the dictionary module wasn't remembering.

Thanks for all the info!
