Re: MacSword 2.2.4 wont open
Hi, well, it seems I can only get one module in the installer at a time. So I can't sort it downward. I tried installing NetNotes manually and I get a message "This module may be incomplete. Try a different reference". I"ve downloaded NetNotesfree but I still can't seem to get the paid version to successfully install. I've checked the cypher key number and it is saved in the mods.d file.

If you select the module source (left side in the module installer) it should list all available modules from this source on the right side and thus you should be able to sort them ascending or descending.

This message: "This module may be incomplete. Try a different reference" can just mean that a certain reference in the commentary is empty. Which reference did you try this with?

The only list I can get is from Crosswire. is there a way to get to a list? The message seems to refer to NetNotes.swd which is for personal commentary. I really want to use macsword but I can't seem to get this to work....... Thanks again.

Re: MacSword 2.2.4 wont open
"Crosswire" is only one of the available module sources.
In MacSword 2 we have now four of those added as default including the one from
You can add them manually with data from here:

But if you installed the .swd version of the module and you see it in the module list window then it already is installed.
The Cipherkey yo need to add then to NetNotes.swd/mods.d/netnotes.conf
Did you do this?

Re: MacSword 2.2.4 wont open
I went to the site, added the NET bible modules to the Module Installer. The NetNotes option was like the third or fourth option from the top. When I select the task "install", it briefly appears but then changes to None.

As for the cipherkey, yes, I have gone to netnotes.conf, saved the cipherkey, used the Module Installer and used local to add it to the Install Source on the left, and it does not give me the option to install, it only says None.

Re: MacSword 2.2.4 wont open
Yeah, I remember there was another bug in the module installer. You had to first select the line/row and then select the task.
Sorry for that. I had put all efforts into MacSword 2 but I guess another fix for 1.4 is necessary.

You don't need to add .swd modules into the module installer as source. Either you have a module source where this particular module is part of (like or you install .swd file manually and put them into:
~/Library/Application Support/Sword
which is the default module folder for MacSword.
They will then get automatically recognised.
EDIT: In MacSword 1 you can define a default module path in preferences. When installing modules manually you need to place it according to what is define din preferences.

So what you would do now is remove the .swd module source in the module installer and then either:

- re-install the NetNotes from the source.
Then add the Cipherkey to:
~/Library/Application Support/Sword/mods.d/netnotes.conf

- copy the NetNotes.swd to:
~/Library/Application Support/Sword
and add the Cipherkey inside the .swd.

Make sure you do not have two NetNotes modules installed otherwise one of them is preferred and the module installer get confused.
