Opening a module
Right click on any module to open it in the current workspace as a new tab or in a new window. Double clicking will by default open it in a new tab.
Enter a bible reference
Once a module/bible is opened you can enter a bible reference or choose from the book/chapter list on the right side.
Multi parallel bibles together with commentary
This window shows how you can have multiple parallel bibles. The rightmost bible in this case is a Hebrew text. On the bottom are two commentaries. You can have as much parallel bibles/commentaries as fit on the screen.
MacSword let’s you search for words or phrases in all module types. The search string can also include logical operators and grouping. The screenshot shows a search result including highlighting of the search words.
This screenshot displays Strong’s numbers next to the text. When hovering over them the entry for the specific Strong’s number is shown in a tooltip.
For modules that support cross references or footnotes in the text MacSword shows a small indication in form of a blue link in the text. When hovering over it or clicking on it additional information about it is shown.
