Hello Steve.

The 64-bit mode which version 2.2.5 included is defective. This resulted in exactly the problem you described.
You can either force the application to start in 32-bit mode. This is configurable through Finder when you right-click on the MacSword icon and choose "Information". Somewhere on the top there should be a check box saying "Open in 32-bit mode".
Or, you can update to version 2.2.6 which has the 64-bit binaries removed again due to those problems.
Any version can be downloaded on the SourceForge web page where the project actually is hosted:

We have a dedicated MacSword mailing list which you can write to. Or you can use our MacSword forum here:
You will normally get very prompt replies there.

> 	After installing the last update to MacSword, the app degraded and at first functions such as adding notes in a workspace wouldn't add to the function bar across the top of the reading space; the save function is not working where work spaces that were previously saved were lost when the space was closed by clicking on the red dot up in the left corner of the workspace window; now Mac Sword does not open at all saying that MacSword quit on launch.  At present I am completely blocked from opening MacSword.

> 	Troy Griffitts says that he doesn't know anything about version 2.2.5-1490.  It appeared on my computer as an update a couple of weeks ago.  I did the download and install.  It has since corrupted as described above.  I definitely did not make my own version.  If no one there knows anything about it be on the lookout for someone trying to subvert the system.
