STEP Reader

e-Sword has an integrated STEP Reader. STEP stands for "Standard Template for Electronic Publishing", and it is a file format designed for the storage of electronic Bible reference books. This file format was once used by QuickVerse, WORDsearch, Bible Companion, and other Bible software products. If you happen to already own one of these programs, then this means you can probably use these resources within e-Sword.

But what if you do not already have a STEP based program? Where can you get STEP libraries to use with this feature? Until now STEP libraries were not available from a third party, but now there is because of a special arrangement with LightByDesign and available for e-Sword users! The sample collection below is free for e-Sword users!

Microsoft Word Macros

If you use Microsoft Word for your sermon preparation (instead of the really cool Topic Notes editor in e-Sword), then maybe the following template will make searching and inserting Scripture easier for you. Taking advantage of the latest in Active-X technology these e-Sword macros give you all of the capability of e-Sword's Search and Copy functions. Now there is no reason to switch back and forth between applications, and "cut-and-paste".
