Questions about our software

If you don't find an answer to your question here and want to ask directly, PLEASE TELL US WHAT SOFTWARE YOU ARE USING. There are many products related to Crosswire. The most common is The Sword Project for Windows. It's extremely difficult to answer a question like "I'm trying to open a Bible but it doesn't work" if we don't even know which application you are using. It also helps if you attach as much exact information about your problem as possible, like "After I have opened the program I select action A from the menu and click button B, but it does nothing". NOT something like "I can't do C".

Somebody sells your software in net, is it right?

It's not forbidden to sell Free Software. However, according to licence the source code must be included. Some people also sell free programs without telling that they are really free, and that is morally wrong.

How do I uninstall?

When I read the Syriac Peshitta and some other modules all I see are boxes?

I love your Bible Tool. Can I install it on our churches website?


Do you have a Sword program for my phone? my pda? my handheld?

I've found a bug. How do I report it?

Why doesn't your program do such and so? I'd like it to do it. It should to be competitive.

How do I do something in MacSword? BibleTime? GnomeSword? BibleDesktop? The SWORD Project for Windows?
