    Pls recommend tablet for elderly use

    Hi, everybody, (Background: I have no experience with tablets on any platform. I use SwordSearcher on a Mac via VirtualBox.) I would love recommendations for a tablet that will run the full version of Windows. I think my elderly mother would benefit from the Bible reading audio. The tablet...

    How to find a word and punctuation

    I have a Greek language user Bible module that includes the diacritical marks (which are not present in the TR module that comes with SwordSearcher). I want to search for all verses that have the word ἔλεγον in them and also have a question mark in them (well, the Greek question mark looks like...

    Search vs. English-Strong's indexer

    Hi, Brandon, When I do this search ("sir @g2962" w/o the quotes), I only get one hit: Mt 21:30. But, when I use the English-Strong's indexer, I get a lot more hits where κυριος is translated as "sir" in the KJV. I did the same thing with "master @g2962", and only got 2 hits. But the ESI got...

    Allow module shortcuts to have more than one letter assigned

    Hello, Brandon, I use module shortcuts all the time. I think I might have mentioned this somewhere else, but if it were possible to assign multiple letters to a module, that would really free up some shortcuts. E.g., I'd love to make the shortcut to the TR module be "Ctrl-TR" or "Ctrl-Alt-TR"...

    Keyboard shortcut for "Send Book (or "Commentary") Link to Editor"

    Feature Request for Brandon: I use this function all the time. Since I try to use the keyboard and not the mouse very much, a keyboard shortcut would be helpful. The one I use most is "Send Book Link to Editor".

    Search for two words in a certain order, but not next to each other

    I hope I haven't asked this before :) In the TR module I want to search for the Greek words και and δε in that order, but not when they are contiguous (which they never are). I know I can search "for verses with ALL of the words specified", but that gives 1431 vv., and they are mostly false...

    Timeline

    Hi, Brandon, I searched in the forums for something on Bible timelines, but I don't see that it's been brought up as a possible future feature. I realize it would be a major undertaking, but … I would love to be able to have a Bible timeline that would have pre-made "layers" with the research...

    Can I put a PDF into a user book?

    Can I put a PDF into a user book? I just searched the forums, but didn't find anything that answered my question? If so how can I do this? Will the text in the PDF be searchable in SwordSearcher (if it's made from a program like Word and saved to PDF, or if it's been OCR'd)? Does it just link...

    Can hyperlinks to SS verses be added to user module information & work?

    I haven't tried this, so I'm just asking up front: Is it possible to use links like this <a href="swordsearcher://bible+kjv/Ge 1.1">Genesis 1:1</a> within the "AuthorDetail" section in the headers of the pre-Forge files so that when one opens up the the Module Information (right click on...

    How to search for certain strings excluding others

    Hi, How do I search, say, the KJV for all instances of the word "for" with a space before it (i.e., " for"), but without a colon before the space? Here's what I tried. I got zero hits using either the RegEx method or the Normal Search with Boolean operators. (Also, here's a verse (1Ch 11:22) in...

    Make highlight type (color) "sticky" when editing user modules

    I'm sure you've got lots of things planned for highlighting, Brandon, but here is one that I think would not be hard to implement (how do I know?!), but would make my work easier. I often apply highlighting (usually yellow) in one of my user modules (Shift-Control-H or via menu "Format" > "Text...

    Search for phrase anomaly

    Hi, Brandon and Friends on the forum. I'm wondering if what I'm seeing here is right, since I did not expect 1Sa 25:10 to be a hit when I searched for the phrase "many days". 1Sa 25:10 has "many servants now a days", but does not have "many days". There are other hits farther down the list that...

    How to escape <characters> in Code Mode in User module?

    Hi, Brandon, I'm using a User Commentary to make an entry for every v. of the NT, then exporting it to make a Bible module via Forge. When I type the following in Code Mode in SwordSearcher v. 8.3 in a footnote in a user commentary, then the stuff between the < and > symbols does not show up...

    Search only TITLES of ENTRIES (chapters) of Books and Commentaries

    I would find it useful if there were another option in the "Full Library Search" panel: "Find only in titles of entries". I just recently needed to find an entry in a user book. I knew a very common word was used in the title, but if I searched for that word, I'd also get lots of hits in the...

    Best way to put PowerPoint presentation into user book

    Is there a good way to "embed" a PowerPoint presentation into a user book? I have a PP presentation full of Bible references that I'd love to do that with, both so the information is available in SS, and also so the links make it easier to see what the verses are talking about when I'm...

    website fonts not rendering correctly: Firefox

    Hello, all, This is rather off-topic, but it affects www.swordsearcher.com. On my Mac, some fonts are showing up as question marks inside of boxes. Any idea why? Thanks! Eric UPDATE: I found the solution: it's a Mac-only thing, I guess, and the solution is there...

    Enhancement to English-Strong's Indexer

    The tool is wonderful as it is, but I think I have an idea or two that would make it even better. (1) How about if it could somehow chart out other ways a given word is translated in the KJV? E.g., you look up "Judas". How about a drop-down expansion triangle under "G2455" with a note "Also...

    Ability to remove verse(s) from Verse List Panel list

    Hi, Brandon. I often copy stuff with references in it into the "Scan Text for Verse References" tool (Alt-F5). I love that tool! One thing that would make it more useful for me would be if I could highlight a verse (or contiguous or non-contiguous verses) and remove them from the list. What...

    Compare verse lists for differences?

    I am wondering if there is a way to compare verse lists (results of searches) to see what the differences are (i.e., what references are included in one list but omitted from another). Example: if you search for "peace offering*" in the KJV, there are 84 hits in KJV, YLT, and NASB. Are they all...

    "Export Verses to File" improvements

    When I use File > Export Verses to File, I find two things I think could be improved: (1) It always defaults to KJVSL, so I have to change it to KJV (otherwise I get the Strong's tags or when saved to HTML, question marks). (2) SwordSearcher does not remember the "Save to" path, so each time I...
