Additional Comments

I've used this program for years and I'm still blow away that Mike Meyers doesn't charge for it. Very powerful tool. If you have this installed on Windows, just download and install the current version. Then just drag the contents of the windows e-sword folder over to the e-sword folder in wine. Make sure you do not replace any files. When using the step reader, make sure the "Files of type" is set to "STEP Data Files (book.dat)". It defaults to "volume files (volume.ini)". The work-around for the graphics is to simply select the graphic you want, then select the print preview icon. If you want more detail, close the print preview and reselect the graphics and it will display properly in the graphics program.
