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.

Who is making decisions in programming of this software? It's really going downhill! The new name "Eloquent" instead of the nice old MacSword is plain ugly and without any biblical meaning. The new icon of the program is extremely ugly. Version 2.3.5 is still massively bug ridden, extremely slow even if you only have the standard KJV bible installed and nothing else. Try search! Unbelievable slooow, even when it grabs the power of both CPU cores shortly before the beach ball of death comes.

In comparison to MacSword 1.4.4 which I still use Eloquent 2.3.5 is pure junk. MacSword 1.4.4 is very fast even with dozens of bibles and commentaries installed. Search is very quick. Sometimes it crashes, but it's a nice program. I'm not gonna try Eloquent anymore, it's a dead end with no future. If MacSword 1.4.4 stops working I will move on to another bible software.

Be warned! Instead of Eloquent load the old MacSword 1.4.4 from their website. It still runs on OSX 10.6 (and should on Lion)!

BTW: MacUpdate should update to the new icon of Eloquent!

After all this is a community driven project.

Nobody needs to step forward to create a new icon. MacSword had a beautiful blue icon. Then it was uglyfied by turning it brown. And now it's looking like garbage. Sorry, but you simply need to adopt the blue icon again ... and the old name MacSword ... and the old codebase.

I love to use MacSword 1.4.4 especially because it is ultra-fast! Eloquent is eloquently sloooooow (besides from very buggy and very crashy and very unergonomic in use). I have no time to wait for useless software on my fast MacBook. There is simply no performance anymore, Eloquent is dead.

I will never understand why a perfectly good project like MacSword 1.4.4 was killed and replaced by a terrible program performance-wise.

(Developer, don't answer my post, I want to forget all new versions above MacSword 1.4.4 which is the gold standard in free Mac Bible software and will be for a long future.)

This might be a bit harsh, but MacSword 2 simply doesn't work. The GUI is totally unintuitive, illogical and very hard to use. Nothing works like expected. The Search function doesn't work at all. The program crashes all the time (hangs with beach ball). Parallel views of bibles is not synchronous. Scrolling sucks. This program is not even an Alpha release. Totally useless. And it is totally slow on a Intel Duocore with 2,4 Ghz (MacSword 1 is light-speed fast).

Developer: Scrap MacSword 2 and restart working on MacSword 1 again. I am using MacSword 1.4.4 and I'm very happy with that great software!

That's very harsh indeed, especially because for the majority of people (including me) MacSword2 is working as expected, very stable and fast. It has a lot of features that MacSword 1 is lacking.
Before submitting zero stars which it definitely doesn't deserve you should contact us to make it work for you as well.
If you are used to MacSword 1 I admit there is a certain learning curve in terms of how-it-works because MacSword 2 simple is totally different. That however doesn't mean it is not intuitive.

OK, after installing an updated module today I wanted to give MacSword 2 another chance. I had open "Schlachter 1951 Module" together with "Adam Clarke Commentary". Now I opened the "KJV 1769 Module" besides Schlachter. The book I was reading was 1st Timothy. Now I double-clicked the book "Psalms" in the right column. Immediately the "beachball" appeared. For minutes the beachball was running. The OSX application killer said MacSword 2 isn't reacting. After a long while Psalms were finally opened. The same action on MacSword 1 goes instantly in a snap. Every time.

MacSword 2 has a completely different and more expensive rendering mechanism but with higher potential and options for future additions.
You should avoid to open whole books or book ranges which you can't read all at once anyway. Instead open chapters or, a chapter range basis or via a entered reference.

The screencast for the module installer is not because installing modules is very complicated. It's just for documentation because we don't much documentation elsewhere. And there are just certain things you'll better know and do which we would not like to do automatically, for example refreshing the module repository.
Actually screencasts is a common way to show people how things work. I find this very frequently.

I have two problems with the latest version:

1. Multiple ref string entries into the search-field do not produce the respective text in the window. The page remains blank.

2. Bookmarks with multiple refs, which are given a title and saved show up in the sidebar often without the title. To get the title shown, the bookmarks must be dragged out and back inside their folder.

Both the above occur intermittently.

Phaleron replied on 09 Aug 2010
Sure, I will do that sometime today.

Regarding the ref search-string, I think I found that what causes the problem is related to entry format. Below are 2 examples, the second works correctly, the first omits Ro 8:15-17 and 2Co 13:14 :

Mt 28:19 Ro 8:9,14-17 2Co 13:14 1Pe 1:2 Jude 1:20,21

Mt 28:19, Ro 8:9,14-17, 2Co 13:14, 1Pe 1:2, Jude 1:20,21

This first method is legitimate, and it would be nice if it worked without the need for commas.

Until today I had been one of those annoying, smug Mac users who had never experienced a crash and/or hang. And then I updated to MacSword 2.2.5. Don't get me wrong, my iMac is certain it has died and entered into heaven with 2.2.5, so beautifully does it do its job (finally Greek with accents!). My MacBook Air, however, will not run this application. It launches once, then quits - "unexpectedly". I have followed the usual advice; I have deleted all kinds of files and things; I have effected clean installs, etc. As a PhD student in theology, I am at a loss, and am considering sack-cloth and ashes as final recourse - though I reserve any hint of optimism, alas . . .

Greek accents are only available in some modules - or so it seems to me. Try "2T Greek" at the Xiphos install source in the module installer. Then go to "Mod Options" in the MacSword window, and select "show Greek accents". Voilà. The "2" in "2TGreek" stands for Testament, since the module contains also the Septuagint (Greek Old Testament). Hope this helps.

Ever since MacSword turned 2.0 I have been unable to get it to launch successfully on my 2008 iMac. I have commented on this a number of times before in this column, been told by the developer that it must be something about my specific system setup, that I should describe precisely what the problem is (which I do as best as I can), and the problem will be discovered and solved.

I am trying once more to get a better result, namely a *solution* so I can use the app.

My setup is: late 2008 iMac 24", 2.8 GHz Intel, 4 GB ram, OS 10.6.3 (the newest iteration). I have a modest number of apps I use regularly, most of which are in wide use by Mac Users.

Hopefully this time will prove the charm.

Our support forum or mailing list is the right place to discuss such matters.
However, there is exactly ONE problem that exists since version 2.0 which causes a crash for some users. It has to do with a MacSword 1 related module repository.
Any user that reported this was able to fix it by deleting the repository folder at ~/Library/Application Support/Sword.
You are more than welcome to report this again in our forum and I will go though the procedure with you.

Developer... I was figuring it was a 10.5 issue only. As 10.4 isn't supported anymore as far as I know. The prior macsword I was speaking of crashed after the update, then would not start. I had to go into Application Support through the Library to delete the MacSword folder before it would load up again. After that, it did start, the window just would not display. I deleted the Sword folder as well, but to no avail, it would simply start up and never display a window. I'm sure you've fixed the problem already, and I'll be downloading this version in a moment.

I have *never* gotten MacSword 2 to work. I first downloaded v. 2 beta longer than a year ago, having enjoyed using v. 1. I have installed updates to 2 as they have come along, hoping maybe I could get the app to open at some point in development. But, NO. Not once nor ever has it successfully opened. Instead, with each and every install, I have had exactly the same result: on first launch, the app icon bounces 3 or 4 times in the dock, then quits, I always get the standard system alert 'MacSword quit unexpectedly. Click Reopen to open the application again. Click Report to see more detailed information and send a report to Apple.' When I click Reopen, again the app's icon appears in the dock momentarily, then disappears, and that's it.

I have tried everything I can think of, including: trash the app along with its associated files/folders on my hard drive, and Secure Empty Trash, then download move the app from my Downloads Folder to Applications, click to open the app afresh; and it crashes exactly the same as before. I have performed this ritual a great many times, same procedure each and every time an updated version has become available. Nada. Zip. No change.

Believe me, I have been thorough, dogged and determined to eventually conquer this problem, and have done everything I know, consulted with other users taking their advice when it seemed appropriate and safe to do so. I have used Easy Find to root out any and all associated files, etc., each time with success.

As if this weren't the full extent of it, a year ago I (coincidentally) bought a brand new 24" iMac 2.8 GHz 4 Gigs Ram (Max), with a brand new La Cie external hard drive (which works beautifully with Time Machine); OS 10.5 then Snow Leopard when it first came out, installed every Security Update and System Update as it was released - now 10.6.1. [Aside. Boy do I love Snow Leopard, like no other OS X version since 10.1.]

Obviously I'm missing something but I don't know and can't imagine what it might be.

I should have written this Troubleshoot in MacUpdate a long time ago, but, you know, I have faith that a capable sincere developer will eventually catch most if not all the problems, and fix them. I hope writing this will lead (or at least progress) to a solution for my problem.

But now I'm really stumped. (I hate to admit this, since half the fun of owning a Mac is getting more and more involved in the cause to keep Apple at the forefront, and hopefully assist others as I have so many times been assisted to my great pleasure and satisfaction.) And I need help again. I have faith I will get it, and blessings on this project no matter my difficulties.

Why do you not write to me directly or to our support forum or to our users mailing list?
A problem description and a crash reporter log and I most probably could have told you what the problem is and how to work around it.

The reason that I can't catch all issues simply is that some don't occur in every environment.

Since our resources in time and test machines is very, very limited this project, as all open source project lives from helping users. This help doesn't need to be in coding but can simply be issue reporting.

MANFRED:

With all respect, *I HAVE POSTED THE SAME ISSUE* (though I admit not as rich in historical data) to the crossforge forums). I'm sorry I did not use the crash reporter as you suggest; but, you see, since I could not get MacSword 2 to open in the first place - its crashing every time on launch I as I have described - I saw no crash reporter. I'm also sorry I did not write to you directly on the matter. I confess I really expected my problem would have surfaced long ago from other users experience, and the appropriate fix would have been made. It may sound like nothing other than magical thinking on my part, but, since the program is widely used and popular, and the issue so basic, and my own system setup unremarkable, I thought watchful waiting was the more prudent course of action. So, yes, it is my fault and I'm sorry if this has upset you so much. As to informing you personally at last, consider my previous post your reference to the issue I request help with.

It's not often I fall down in my responsibility as a very long-time Mac user and enthusiast, but a mistake it was and I've learned a valuable lesson. Thanks. Please tell me the most expedient way to allow you to reply to me personally. Sincerely, Tom

–Inability to click-select and highlight bookmarks (intermittent)
–Inability to change bookmark stacking order (intermittent)
–When bookmark stacking order is moved, the old position is retained resulting in 2 bookmarks.

Other issues: Side panel limited width adjustment

Installed 2.0rc1-255. I can't load any of the modules I have with version 1.4.3. Installing this release candidate only installs the program. Since the interface is so different, I'm not sure how to use the program nor install my modules. So I've reinstalled version 1.4.3.

This version should use the module base that is already installed.
Some reports came in that they had to remove their installed modules under:
/Users//Library/Application Support/Sword
and re-install them using the module installer that comes with the application.
BTW: the module installer works the same way as with MacSword 1.4.3.
The interface is simple to use. On the left you have your installed modules and bookmarks.
Double click on a module and it opens. You can check the context menu on most places for available functions.

I figured it out. Modules installed. Thank you for the reply.

MacSword is a remarkable Bible Study program.

How do I install the modules? On their website they only have instructions for Windows & Linux users. I can't even download the modules' .zip files. Otherwise that seems to be a good project!
