Importing Modules from Previous Versions
|Top Previous Next|
This version of SwordSearcher supports user modules created in version 5.0 and later. If you are upgrading from a 5.x version, you do not need to do anything to use your user modules. Upgrading will automatically retain your user-created content. If you are upgrading from version 5.0 or later, you can safely skip the rest of this section.
If you have user-created content in a much older version of SwordSearcher (3.x or 4.x), you can import it for use in this version of SwordSearcher.
When importing, SwordSearcher simply reads your old file, then creates a new user module in the SwordSearcher user module storage folder. Your old file is not altered or erased, and can still be used by the older version of SwordSearcher. The new file, however, will not be backwards-compatible with previous versions.
If you are manually restoring user modules from another source such as an external hard drive or a backup, be sure to put them in your Documents\SwordSearcher User Modules folder. Do not place user modules under the Program Files folder on your hard drive; they cannot be edited if they are in that location.
SwordSearcher 4 user Books and Commentaries can be imported. Select Import SwordSearcher 4.x User Module from the User menu. Choose your user module file when prompted to begin importing. If you installed SwordSearcher 4 in the default installation location, SwordSearcher should be able to locate your user folder. Otherwise, you will need to manually locate your SwordSearcher 4\User folder to choose your user module.
Repeat this process for each user module you need to import.
SwordSearcher 3 user Note Sets can be imported as SwordSearcher commentary modules. Select Import SwordSearcher 3.x Note Set from the User menu. Choose your user module file when prompted to begin importing. If you installed SwordSearcher 3 in the default installation location, SwordSearcher should be able to locate it. Otherwise, you will need to manually locate your SwordSearcher 3 folder.
Repeat this process for each note set you need to import.
