How do I make my own modules for e-Sword LT?

There is a lot to it, but hopefully we can make it easy for you. The following steps should assist you in this endeavor:

STEP #1 — e-Sword. You need to have a PC with e-Sword 13 installed on it. You can download that from here: https://www.e-sword.net/downloads.html

STEP #2 — Content. There are thousands of user-made modules already available for e-Sword which can easily be converted for e-Sword LT. Join the e-Sword User Group where you can find what you are looking for, or if it doesn't already exist there are also tools by which you can create them! The e-Sword User Group is here: http://www.biblesupport.com/

STEP #3 — Convert. After you have downloaded the e-Sword module(s) you wish to convert for use in e-Sword LT you will need to run them through the e-Sword PC Module Conversion Utility. You can download that from here: https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html

STEP #4 — Transfer. The final step is to move the new module(s) onto your iPhone. You will need to have iTunes installed on your PC to accomplish this. Detailed instructions on moving files onto your iPhone using File Sharing are here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201301

STEP #5 — Restart. To load the new module(s) you will need to restart e-Sword LT if it is already running. During the startup process e-Sword LT will pull the module(s) into its sandbox and load them. If there are any problems with a module it will be deleted!

WARNING!!! When you connect to the iPhone with File Sharing you will see a bunch of files. Leave these alone as these are your user files! You can certainly back them up if you want, but do not delete them! Also, do not copy any files that were not created with the conversion utility as they will be ignored by the app and this directory is backed up to the iCloud so you could run out of space there!
