    Module Copy Edit and Non-Edit

    Sorry, I left this step out of my instructions. Copy the assets folder from the original module to a new folder with the name modified to match the new book. So you'll have two copies of the assets folder, one for each book. Well, Forge overwrites any file that already exists when creating its...

    Layouts in Sword Searcher

    The layout doesn't include your visible library tabs, saving and restoring a layout just restores the "look" of your SwordSearcher desktop -- where the panels are. Module sets are the right way to set up different groups of library tabs and quickly change which ones are visible. They can also...

    Module Copy Edit and Non-Edit

    Export your module for Forge. You can do this from the User menu, "Advanced Module Maintenance," Export, "Export Module for Forge." Edit the exported file to change the module name. Use Forge to import the new module and make it non-editable.

    Guide to Running SwordSearcher on Linux Operating Systems (Updated June 2024)

    Unfortunately that is likely due to the old version IE8 that can be used to grab the mshtml and supporting DLLs. Font fallback issue, which doesn't work well in IE8. You'll have to pick a font that has the Unicode block in it that those arrows come from.

    Images

    The image viewer doesn't really have a means for this, and if I added it (possible), I would also need to manually index all of the included images (very time-consuming). Ideally, the images would all allow text-based tags and verse references to be added to them, so the maps/etc would be...

    Guide to Running SwordSearcher on Linux Operating Systems (Updated June 2024)

    I expect you can run Wine + Winetricks on any Linux desktop distribution. It may just take some adapting of my instructions here. Mint probably has Wine and Winetricks packages. I only tested Wine 9 and the current version of Winetricks on Ubuntu, but you'd probably be able to make it work on...

    It is possible to use SwordSearcher on Linux-based operating systems like Ubuntu with Wine. Wine stands for "Wine is not an Emulator" and is a work-in-progress that attempts to implement the Windows API without actual Windows. However, making it work is not very easy, because SwordSearcher...

    Audio Just Stopped Working... ?

    I've never seen that error message before. Anyway, any time Windows detects a display change it's possible for the audio output to change or be re-directed, and in this case obviously stopped it from working. Whenever I don't hear something when I think I should, or something won't play, I check...

    Newly created modules becoming uneditable?

    I've seen this happen on users' computers that have their user modules stored in cloud-synced locations. Personally I have never had this problem (and I use OneDrive), but you could try moving your user module folder to some other location on your hard drive...
