I am thoroughly happy to see the additional books they have included in these various modules. What powerful tools!

MS Paint.

Press "Alt" and "Print Screen/SysRQ" at the same time. Then open Paint, go to Edit and choose Paste. There is your screen shot. Save it as a jpg in your picture files and you are good to go.

Ah ha!  :D :D :D :D  I learned something new! Of course I don't know what I will use it for but I am excited about it!

 ;D

Isn't that the neatest trick? Of course, it does not work on this particular computer, but it did with the other one.

Congratulations on your new computer.  I hope it has a lot of bells and whistles the old one didn't have.  :)

Thank you! It is far from new but a far cry better than the old one.

Just thought I'd bump this current since e-Sword has released a new version.

Can't afford iphones and ipads. But, I have androids.  I just was asking about esword for Android. Anyone know of such a thing?  The EGW books on Android appear to be very poorly designed for Android. Either I can't figure out how to search, or it is impossible to search the whole database. It seems I have to search book by book.

Well I was excited that e-Sward was available for iOS until I discovered that it costs $4.99. It's probably good price for what you get but unfortunately I'm spoiled with the free version for windows.

I have never used this program but I have a friend who told me that he thought it was a good Bible program for linux and it seems that they've developed it for android. It's called MySword

I have never used an Android device before so I can't speak to it but is the android app that you're using from the EGW Estate? The app they wrote for iOS seems very well done. However, I have the opposite problem. I can't figure how to search in just one book as it always seems to search the whole database :(

I've used e-sword for years on my pc's.  It has been very helpful.  On my Android phone, I use "And Bible."  It is similar to e-sword and is also free. 

I haven't had any issues with EGW on my Android phone, Richard.  I'm able to search everything at once.  Not sure what your problem may be.  You might have a corrupted installation and need to reinstall.

Thanks, LtV.  I would really enjoy using it. It is encouraging to know that it is me and not the app. We got 4g not long ago and I have gotten used to turning to my phone and really want to search the disc when not at home.   As for paying for the e-sword app, the only problem i have is giving Google my name, phone, number, address, and credit card number. I have not done it and will forgo any app in order to keep from doing it.  As some don't appreciate Microsoft, I have a dislike for how Google and facebook work. I quit using gmail and don't use Google search all the time.  Happy there is competition with Apple even though I don't use them for anything.

Richard, I don't blame you for not giving your info to google. However, there is a way to still purchase apps and that is to go the store and purchase a google-play gift card. I know they can be had for $10 and I think I've even seem them as low as $5.00  This is nice when you only want to purchase a single app. However, I haven't yet myself purchased an app on the google play store.

I have a question for those who have use e-sword. When I use the search option I often need much narrower search ranges then the preset ones that come on e-sword. Often I'll be searching for words in just one or two books or desire to search matthew-john without the book of Acts. However, i have to choose custom search every time. So my question is this. Is there a way to create your own pre-defined search ranges in e-sword?

There are new EGW modules available for e-sword. It appears to be most everything she has written. Amazing.
