We are happy to announce the availability of MySword 7.1 for download. MySword 7.1's major features are Personal notes improvements like multiple notes per verse or verse range and optional title/tags, and some optimizations.

Please go to the Download MySword page.

The noteworthy new features of MySword 7.1 are:

  1. Personal Notes improvements:
    1. Optional title and tags can now be added and date/time created edited (similar to Journal entries).
    2. Notes for a range of verses is now possible by specifying Verse To different than From. The notes will be shown for all verses in the range similar to MHWBC (Matthew Henry) Commentary.
    3. It is now possible to have multiple notes on the same verse. The date/time and optional title is used as key in the selection of what to Edit/Delete. Notes on a verse are displayed sorted by Verse From then Date/time.
    4. It is possible to skip the Details entry (old behavior) when editing an existing note by unchecking Enter/Edit notes details or in the new Notes Preferences.
    5. Search now includes search (type) by Title and Tags.
    6. New Notes Preferences to enable/disable Multiple notes and Enter/Edit notes details. See the Preferences icon in the top bar to the left of Delete icon, or in Compact mode see the Navigation drawer.
  2. Android N support:
    1. Multi-window is supported only when Display Preference Orientation is set to Automatic and not Lanscape nor Portrait.
    2. Switching between Multi-window and normal view will not restart any MySword screen.
    3. Switching between Multi-window and normal view will not cause a crash when a popup is shown as there is no longer a restart of the screen.
    4. Long tap popup menu will no longer go to the upper left.
  3. Detect verses improvement:
    1. New verse references separators: &, and, or (e.g. TS2009's translator's notes in Psa 147:19, Deu 12:8)
    2. Original separators are now remembered
  4. Merge adjacent Bible references improvement: &, and, or are now included as separators.
  5. Popup Translators' Notes improvement: detected Bible verses are now merged as well in case the Merge Bible references preference is set.
  6. Verse List Add verse from Compare mode will now add all translations shown in Compare.

  8. The Full screen and Compact mode bottom right scrollers as well as the Compact mode bottom buttons are now more transparent in Dark themes.
  9. Module's Custom CSS support in Bible Compare and Search results (e.g. for BHSE modules in Dark themes).
  10. Journal Exact/No Accent and FTS Exact (Deluxe) indexes improvement: Accents, diacritics and punctuation marks are now also removed for title and tags similar to content. Please Reindex in Search screen (via Menu).
  11. Own Progress Tracking (Deluxe) summary improvement: added Next cycle column to Estimated days to finish for tracks that will be repeated many times (completed is greater than 100%).
  12. In Editor in Split view (Deluxe), after Search Bible and Paste type selection is displayed, there is a new item "Just set preview" which can be used not to paste the verse as link but just move the preview to that verse. This is not available for other Module types.
  13. Create blank XRef file (Deluxe) in Preferences->Cross-Reference. XRefs can then be added via Edit Cross References.
  14. Search for Diff between two Bibles in Parallel Diff mode (Deluxe). Please note that when you are in Parallel Diff mode view and went to Search, the Type and Keyword is not used as the Search switches to Diff Search. The search will be fast with the following Parallel Diff settings: Ignore case; Ignore accents/diacritics; Don't include titles, notes, XRefs, Strongs; and there is an Exact Index for search. Narrowing the book range also will make it fast so please start with a narrow range.
