I love eloquent and use it a lot. However it does not work on my new silicone MacBook Pro. It seems to be incompatible with Rosetta as well as the new system of big Sur. Hopefully it will be upgraded very soon. Thank you.

Really really good Bible app - I prefer it to Logos. Manfred is a good guy - he seems a little serious, but he's a good guy. I asked him about "MacSword" which is my go-to Bible app, and he was quick to point out that Eloquent is just as good, and that conversation brought me back to the app. I also discovered the ability to copy and paste text into the user module for a customized commentary. I copy and paste my epub NAC, chapters of Isaiah here and there depending on what I'm working on, and it keeps track of it verse by verse. Something that's hard to find in other Sword project apps. Does anyone know where to find MacSword online anymore? Or if it's being kept up? Just kidding, Manfred!

Hi Manfred, Can you help me with Strong's Hebrew Numbers that no longer work. I deleted something else, then lost the function. I tried to remove and redownload the whole app again, but it appears to remember me and when I check to update the module, it tells me I have it, so cannot reinstall it. I tired removing and reloading it, but nothing seems to work.

Overall I'm glad this exists, but one problem I had suggested to fix years ago is still there in the latest version. It still does not let one pre-select the Highlighted Text Color for a Bookmark or remember the color choice for it. In the main Preference Pane there should be a checkbox and selector for Bookmark Text Color or the Bookmark Edit Pane should remember the settings As is, one needs to check the Highlight box and select the color each time the Bookmark Edit pane opens. I don't know if this is too complicated, but maybe check how some Firefox Highlighting plugs handle this so elegantly. There is also a problem that I can't bookmark at all, unless I click each verse to open in a separate window, which is not the case in v.2.2.12.
