How do I export a user module I created in SS to HTML? Thanks
User menu/Adv user mod maint/ and select the module. Then export to html.
Thanks......but I don't have anything like that under the User menu. Is that something in a later version. I am running 6.2, how would I get to it in this version? Thanks a lot........
Version 6.2 does not have a true HTML export option. You can export for Forge (on the User menu) but the output is intended for use in the Forge module builder and doesn't write a valid HTML document.
Version 7.1 added a true HTML export option.
For upgrade information, open your SwordSearcher and go to the Help menu and select Check for Updates.
What I am wanting to accomplish is to get my user modules into Evernote. Would this be a way to do it?
I don't know anything about Evernote, sorry.
The HTML export in SS 7.1 writes a valid HTML document that would load up in any HTML viewer and would probably work well for reading your notes on pretty much any platform. If Evernote stores HTML documents like that it would probably work.
Ok, I think that will work then................that's what I am after to view my user modules from my phone or ipad.
Here's a link to a chapter summary, commentary module that I exported in HTML from SS v. 7.1.
You can see what the html looks like by downloading from the above link.
I also sent the html file to evernote using the sendto right-click option in file explorer. Here is what it looks like in evernote. Looks like it should work for your commentary.
Ok, that looks good.............when I try to do the same the book comes up in my browser. Is this actually showing up inside Evernote for you?
It's in evernote both on my PC based application and on the web based application.
It will open in a browser if you double click on the html file or open it some other way.
You should have an email address you can use to send to evernote. Since I have the pc application installed, it put a sendto option in file explorer when I right click on a file.
In the worst case, you could open the file with your browser and do ctrl-a to select all of it, then copy and paste into evernote.
Hope that works for you.
Here is what the file explorer menu looks like for me when I right click on the file:
Ok, got it. Thanks!
Bill, do you think it would be useful to include a table of contents with anchor links at the top of the export?
That would be very useful.
It would be especially useful for books. It might make a good authoring tool for creating Kindle or other e-books from user created SS books.
It might be a large list for commentaries but still it would be easier to find a comment that scrolling to the right place.
I've added a TOC option for HTML exports to the to-do list.
Would it be in the next SS 18.104.22.168 program version?
Unknown at this time. It's on the to-do list but I do not have ETAs for any feature requests right now.
