I just found some copies of the book on Enoch in .topx format, from a link on one of these forums, but don't have the foggiest idea how to view them. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I did try searching for help but couldn't find any and the site was going so slowly that I decided that this was probably the best option to find out. Sorry if I've done the wrong thing.

My brother in Christ this is simple. To view your TOP and TOPX files just down load the Topical Notes module and read them with it using the drop down menue. I hope this helps.

Re: How do I view .topx files?

Thanks rljern, it has helped a little bit. But I still need a bit more help...
If I just knew where to download the Topical Notes Module from, I'm sure that I'd be able to read my topx downloads with that information. As it is, I can't find the Topical Notes Module. Could you please point me in the right direction?

Ok.

1) Download the TOP. and TOPX. files to C/Progams/E-Sword
2) Launch E-Sword.Exe
3) Go to the Commentaries pane and click on "Topical Notes".
4) At the bottom of the pane you will see a drop down box with file name .TOPX. On the right hand side of the bottom of the pane you should see a drop down arrow.
5) This should display all of your .TOPX files.

Pleas let me know if this worked for you

bluerooster,

you can also expand the commentary window to full page by left clicking the little box with a Capital C in the tool-bar above the three window panels to help view your topics better, this goes the same for any of the other window views (B for Bible, D for dictionaries) and then just left click the three window box to get back to all three windows showing at once when your ready.

Thanks Will. That certainly makes it easier to read. Now all I need is more time to do all the reading. I'll have to try and sleep faster ;-)

Re: How do I view .topx files?

I have a similar problem.
First, I have the topic.topx file and the study file, and I think I have them in the right location, but am not certain, but when I open e-sword they don't show up.

I hope you can help me.

Thanks, my friend.

Re: How do I view .topx files?

I have two problems:
1. I mistakenly tried to open topic.topx with internet explorer. Now I can't seem to remove it. I go to the register editor and delete the open file with option, but it seems to appear as the open with option anyway.

2. I just installed e-sword on a new computer but I haven't been able to get the topic.topx and the study notes to work.
In my old computer the path is c:\user\tony\documents\e-sword.
In the new computer the path is c:\user\tonynew\my documents\e-sword.
Are the path differences causing the problems?

Re: How do I view .topx files?

I hope I can help you Kings Kid. This is what I'd do.
First of all, make sure that your topx files are in your e-sword folder (c:\user\tonynew\my documents\e-sword).

Then start the e-sword program.

In the commentary window, click the tab that says 'Topic Notes'. (That's where the topx files appear.

Just underneath the formatting toolbar (in the Commentaries window) you will fing a combo box. Click the 'down arrow' and you will find all your topx files listed in there. Just click on the one that you want to view.

You can maximize the commentaries window for easier reading. (The top of the e-Sword window has some buttons there, B to max the Bible window, C to max the Commentaries window, D for the Dictionary and another button to their left, to restore all 3 windows ...

Let me know how you go...

Re: How do I view .topx files?

railpost,

click "E" on the tool bar at the very top of the e-Sword program and the Editor's window will appear. It is a new window just added to the program to seperate the topics and study notes from the Commentaries. Once it is open click on the topics tab above the window and then at the bottom of the window is the scroll bar to veiw and pick out which module resource you wish to read.

You can also fix all 4 windows to open at the same time but that does not leave much room for reading, it is best to run the Editor's window in full screen for best reading veiw.

Hope that gets you going, if not let us know at what stage things are going wrong and we will try and help from there.

Help!!!!!!

Topics files are no longer located in the Commentary workspace view of e-Sword 9.7.2 You should notice a new workspace view called "Editors" this is the new location for the Topic, Study and the new Journal Notes.

Here's a link to a demonstration of rearranging the views on the e-Sword workspace.

Re: How do I view .topx files?

I was just struggling with this as well, having upgraded to Windows 7 and downloaded e-Sword 9.8.1. What I found is that, in order to view the particular topic file in the Editors window, you must use the path "File => Open" to open the particular topic file. It seems a little more cumbersome than previously, unless I'm using an unnecessarily long method to access the topics.
