Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

I'm sure it's something I did, it happened before the update. Yeah, I've tried just about everything I can think of short of clean install, just didn't know if you had seen this before.

Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

Manfred, thanks for the quick reply. I took a look at the editing feature again and noticed that I always clicked next to the verse and couldn't type there - but once you click below, it works fine for me. So know I now.

I noticed a few smaller issues (like e.g. the add bookmark dialog cannot be closed using the ESC button), and was thinking it might be easier to just submit a patch rather than writing long posts describing them. Is the repository described at http://sourceforge.net/projects/macsword/develop the current one for MacSword 2?

Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

I fixed it, there was duplicate module from an update, must have confused the program.

Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

New version of MacSword released.

If no show stoppers are discovered this might get the final version and will be released shortly.

Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

It seems like

- Focus search Text box
- Next book
- Previous book
- Next chapter
- Previous chapter

keyboard shortcuts are not working. Can you check? (Version 2.0.0rc1-225)

Also, I was wondering if you could assign same shortcuts for both "Switch to Reference lookup" and "Switch to Index lookup" since you are moving from one lookup mode to another. Something like "Switch lookup mode" -> command R

God bless,

TJ

Yes, thanks. Fixed it.

Yes, we can do that. Two shortcuts are not necessary here.

Re: MacSword 2 beta announcement

I've been experimenting with the new beta for a while, and here's some questions/comments.

Are there going to be more flexible options with the text layout? One thing I've missed from 1.4 is the smooth and crisp font layout with margins and colored titles/verse numbers. The new layout has a lot of benefits, but it's very crowded. If I shrink or hide the sidebars to make more room, it feels stretched. If anything, an option to add margins (so the text wouldn't feel quite so boxed in) would be nice. I attend a weekly college level Bible class where I share my laptop's bible with a friend, and I find the new layout to harder to read for extended periods of time.

I like how the newest version saves sidebar widths, but the transition from windowed to fullscreen messes that up a little. Rather than the fullscreen mode having the same fixed width as windowed, it tends to "scale" out to be larger. If I readjust them in full screen, the sidebars will be much narrower when I return to windowed. Is this intended? On a side note, perhaps an option to smoothly show/hide the sidebars would be a cool addition...

Now, perhaps the most irritating aspect of MacSword 2 is the search feature. The background indexing takes forever and eats up a whole core of my processor. I am using a 4,1 Unibody Macbook Pro with 2.4 gHZ processor and 4 GB RAM, and it took MacSword 20 minute to index the KJV. After all that, I at least hoped the search would work, but no such luck. After I enter a term and hit Return, simply nothing happens. I?should note as an experiment I completely erased all MacSword files from my hard drive, and installed 1.4 by itself. I installed some modules, and ran a search. The first attempt didn't work, but on the second try on a relaunch a few minute later, I got nearly instant results from the whole KJV. What is different between 1.4 and 2, and why does 2 take so long to index?

I set KJV as my default Bible yet when I started a new Bible window, I got a different version first every time, with KJV listed under it. Does the default option really work?

One more question…Could the keyboard shortcut for returning from fullscreen mode be changed to the Escape key? It is much more Mac-like and intuitive, in my opinion. The Command-Option-F command is fine for entering fullscreen, but Escape seems more natural to exit fullscreen.

Hi chasm.

Thanks for your feedback.

Yes, we can add adjustible margins.
Also other layout options will come in the future.


I like how the newest version saves sidebar widths, but the transition from windowed to fullscreen messes that up a little. Rather than the fullscreen mode having the same fixed width as windowed, it tends to "scale" out to be larger. If I readjust them in full screen, the sidebars will be much narrower when I return to windowed. Is this intended?

No, I haven't noticed this.
I'll check it.

On a side note, perhaps an option to smoothly show/hide the sidebars would be a cool addition...

The left side bar actually is hidden and shown using Core Animation and should actually be smooth but it isn't. Don't know why right now.
This made me just remove and add the side bar on the right without animation.
Probably there are some Core Animation settings to do this more smooth and I just didn't find them. :)
