    25 years developing SwordSearcher

    I wrote this short post on my personal blog, and figured some people here would like to see it. To everyone who has been supporting SwordSearcher for so many years: THANK YOU! 25 years is a LONG TIME to be able to work on one software project! 25 Years a Bible Software Developer In 1994, just...

    Audio Bible support information (Update March 2019)

    With SwordSearcher 8.3, audio Bible support has been significantly expanded, with verse-level synchronization available for multiple mp3 audio Bibles, and the ability to link an unlimited number of audio Bibles at the same time. Note that SwordSearcher does not come with an audio Bible. You may...

    Most accurate audio Bible module for pronunciation?

    I still need to update that audio info page, maybe later today. I don't know if there is a definitive answer to your question. Having worked through these audio Bibles over the last few months, my opinion is that it's a toss-up between Scourby and McClean.

There are now several narrations supported by SwordSearcher's audio Bible integration and you may link in as many audio Bibles as you have on your...

    Word lookup

    You mentioned the Topic Guide. I have been thinking of adding an entry view to the topic guide so that you could browse all of the entries without having to use the main panels. Sounds like this would be a possible way to get what you want without having to add more options in StudyClick or...

    Word lookup

    Maybe. I will have to give this some thought. The amount of options in StudyClick is already pretty intimidating for many users. :-) Adding a third combination could be too much.

    Word lookup

    Right now, you can already open a clone window while clicking a link in a book or commentary module by holding down CTRL as you click it. So I was looking at new functionality for StudyClick, which is where we get things like turning words into links. It would be another StudyClick option on the...

    Word lookup

    I'll note this as a StudyClick feature request. Adding "... in a clone panel" to the closest matching book entry option should be possible.

    Paragraph Reading Mode missing in my SS 8.2

    I only test SwordSearcher on up-to-date installations, so I can't really be of much help here. I am sorry I had forgotten about the issues you described in another thread. I have had a few other customers email me about the "one word per line" issue and they were all using non-updated Windows 7...

    Paragraph Reading Mode missing in my SS 8.2

    No, this is a bug in old versions of the Windows html text control prior to Windows 8. As long as you are using a version of Windows supported by SwordSearcher 8.2 (version 7, 8, or 10) you can fix this by allowing your system to update the Internet Explorer components of the operating system...

    disable popup?

    No. I am more afraid of someone turning it off by mistake and thinking it's broken. :-) I will add it to the feature request list.

    disable popup?

    No, there isn't.

    Search Results Panel Display Settings Question?

    There isn't an in-panel toggle for this setting. For clarity: This setting can be found in File, Preferences. See the screen shot: No, the Copy References toolbar button in the Verse List will always use abbreviated book names.

    How to organize my own topics in Swordsearcher

    Create a "user book" for this. This video shows the basics: The video shows making a commentary and then making a book. You'll want to watch the whole thing but for your purposes, focus on creating a user book. SwordSearcher will give you...

    User-submitted Chapter and Verse Numbers

    Those file types are very different. Changing the file extensions would just prevent them from loading. I am not sure what this means. I think you are referring to the Bible margin. If the CVN module is user-editable (I have not used it, so I can't say), that would show there with "Edit CVN"...

    No, I haven't done this.

    How do you uninstall / remove a book, commentary, and dictionary?

    Thank you -- I forgot to mention that!

    How do you uninstall / remove a book, commentary, and dictionary?

    If you want to hide items from view, go to TABS, and then choose "Select which tabs to show." Likewise for your Bible margin, go to the Bible menu and choose "Select items for Bible margin links." If you do not want a module to be available at all -- if you want the module to not be installed...

    Handfuls on Purpose by James Smith and Robert Lee

    There is no automated way for you to convert modules from other software to SwordSearcher. However, there is a build tool for SwordSearcher in case you are not wanting to use the integrated editing features. See Forge. I can't say whether or not this will be useful for your project, but it could...
