Accordance module compatibility
I recently upgraded my Mac OS from Tiger to Snow Leopard. I was a casual user of Accordance, another Bible software program out there. It required Rosetta to run on my MacBook. When I upgraded to OS 10.6 the recommended install was to omit Rosetta. I wondered how many programs I used that used it. Turns out, not many. I figured the computer would run better without Rosetta messing around in the background, so came looking for another Bible program. I found MacSword, and like what I see so far.

The question is, am I able to salvage any of the investment I made in Accordance over the years by importing some of the modules into MacSword?

Hello.

If Accordance supports some kind of export so that your text can be exported in some format you would be able to create a SWORD module from it and use it in MacSword.

Accordance from version 8 however is universal binary so it runs natively without Rosetta.

Re: Accordance module compatibility
Thanks.

I have an older version of Accordance. That is why it needs Rosetta.

I will check on the export idea and ask more questions if it looks like it might work.

Re: Accordance module compatibility
I just read this at the crosswire site:
"How do I convert modules from other Bible software (e.g. e-Sword, BibleWorks, or OLB) into Sword modules?

The SWORD Project does not support the conversion of texts from other Bible software vendors. By that, we mean that we neither encourage you or others to convert material from other software because it may violate licensing or copyright restrictions. Nor can we provide any assistance to those who choose to convert such material."

I guess my question here in the forum was inappropriate. Sorry.

Well, we don't encourage people to do that except the material is public domain. What you do privately however is up to you.
