Forge, the external module-building tool for SwordSearcher, has been updated to version

Forge is a free external module build tool for SwordSearcher. It is designed for advanced users and publishers who need to be able to import a large amount of text into a SwordSearcher module without using SwordSearcher's internal user editor. Most users have no need for Forge and should just use the integrated user module tools in SwordSearcher. Please see the Forge web page for details.

What's new in this update:

  • Updated verse reference parser and build code with SwordSearcher 7.2 core.
  • Documented ; FONT header option.
  • Added ; HEBREW and ; HEBREWOT Bible header options (see documentation for details).
  • Fixed Forge crash when SwordSearcher is open and Forge tries to rebuild an open module.
  • Updated crash bug reporting system to use web server instead of email.
  • Prevent book modules with more than 65,534 entries from being built (they can’t be loaded by SwordSearcher at this time).
  • Improved output of “Report Empty Verses” Bible build option.
  • Added option to control Roman numeral parsing in automatic verse reference tagging.
  • Various bug fixes.
