    Thanks for a great product. I've been an e-Sword user for years and still very much appreciate it but I love the advanced search capabilities that SwordSearcher has. I've watched a lot of videos and am looking forward to migrating all of my study notes into SwordSearcher. I've had limited success using es2f and Forge but I'm under the impression it works better with older eSword modules.

    eSword stores the user's study notes in a mySQL database and I had hoped that I might be able to export the content, perhaps in an XML format and import it into SwordSearcher. Does SwordSearcher store the user's data in an open source database format?

    Thank you.

    No, it is a custom storage system tailored specifically for the needs of SwordSearcher.

    You can build a user module externally using Forge. But it does require some work to do format shifting.
