I just was looking at πρεσβύτερος,

 

in BDAG.  When I clicked on the gear icon and then paragraph view,

the article disappeared except for the single entry word πρεσβύτερος.

 

I have experienced successful use of paragraph view on another word I looked up a day or two ago.

It made the lexicon more readable.  (I commend you for that).

I do use back background with green letters as default.  This may be another of the black font on black background issues.  I haven't checked that yet.

 

Thanks for your help

I can repro. this. I had always thought this mode was intended to show just the first paragraph as that was how I commonly saw it work - and that's what happens in this case. αγαπη by contrast has a larger initial para. so you get more info. I'd be interested to know how its supposed to work. I use article myself. I guess I 'd assumed that paragraph gave you a short form listing form scanning results but I cannot find any explanation of it in the doc so I'd love to hear what its really for.

 

Thx

If you want the whole πρεσβύτερος entry, use Show Text As > Articles.

Paragraph shows just the paragraphs that have a hit from your search.  In this case, the first line of the article is a separate paragraph from the sub sections, so only that first line (paragraph) is shown.

Makes sense - Show Text As is then the search result context for tools.

Thx

Send me your address.  What animal do you want?  Your help has been excellent.  Maybe a tiger is what you should be for your reward.

 

I am disappointed.  I thought that Accordance had unclogged BDAG, making it readable.

Thanx Enoch but in this case I cannot take the credit. Joel had the real answer.

 

As to unclogging BDAG it sounds like you want something like text display options like, "paragraphs with space" but I don't believe this exists for Tools, although your enhancement request looks to add more whitespace than perhaps that would do.

 

Thx

What is white space to a computer?  It would take an incredible amount of white space to bring a computer to its knees.  it doesn't require murdering trees.

Yep - almost nothing - but I wasn't worried about that but about how close to hand a solution might already lie. But looking again at your enhancement I see also that your color coded version is a much more extensive change. Like you say a new module.

 

Thx
