I second this, with needing help for the CMTI format!

For anyone interested in the process, I found out how to format a CMTI file.
(I'm not sure how well this will work with Bible modules or Book modules though.)
You need to convert the CMTI to CMTX and from there you can try theWord's "twimport" or "Simple Bible Reader 3.0".
However, you have to use e-Sword's "Tooltip Tool NT" to convert the CMTI to CMTX first.

1) In "Tooltip" go to menu items:
"ModulesHD" > click "Target = PC"

2) Then again:
"ModulesHD" > click "Read CMTI Module"
This opens the CMTI file.

3) Wait while it reads it... then wait some more. (Hopefully it won't crash.)

4) Now you have to set up the file so it is recognized properly:
"Modules" > "Module Define Variables" > click "CMTX - Commentary File"
After a moment or two, the Description and Information or whatever is generated inside the file.
This is not all that important as you will be changing that from within theWord as a finished module.
(Yes it's sloppy to leave things as they are, yet if you came this far, you'll figure out how to neaten things up on your own.)

5) Now we are ready to export the file as "CMTX":
"Modules" > "Commentary" > click "Save Commentary File"
Save it to whatever name you wish to use.

6) Wait a short while and you should now have a fully usable CMTX file.
There shouldn't be any loss of quality in the file as you went from one e-Sword format to another.

7) Now here is where the potential quality loss could occur, when going from one closed source format to another (e-Sword to theWord).
Open "twimport" or in case that doesn't work, there is the brute force method of "Simple Bible Reader 3.0" (which seems to destroy italics), to then export that CMTX as a "CMT.TWM" module.

8) Install as usual with theWord, and edit the module through the "User module (can be edited)" option under the "Module properties...".

Software used
- e-Sword ToolTip Tool NT 2020.04.11

- twimport

- Simple Bible Reader 3.0

In my experience when importing into theWord: one commentary worked fine using "twimport", and another was broken and I had to use "Simple Bible Reader" to export the CMTX file into the CMT.TWM format; which exported a new and working module for theWord, yet ruined the text formatting (italics were no more).
Hopefully this makes sense to anyone who may have had issues with this... either way, I'm sure the instructions are one this site anyway.
