First time posting here so please go easy on me...lol...I'm a relatively new Accordance user and so far I'm LOVING IT!!!

 

Prior to using Accordance I was using my print ESV Study Bible or my ESV Study Bible iOS app.  This may be a bit juvenile, but I really miss the section heading in my ESV Study Bible when in Accordance.  The only workaround I've found to quickly be able to see what the section is about is through the "Outline" module.  Is there a way to get section headings on when reading the ESV translation (or any other translation for that matter)?

 

Thanks in advanced!

I'm not sure how many have the sections, I don't think many have them, but the NIV (2011) by showing the notes in parallel.

Hi Yellowchops not sure if this is what you are looking for, but if you look on the left hand side of the ESV Study bible you will see a three lines Icon. If you click there you will see the index with the sections. Does that helps?

Hey, Yellowchops.  Welcome to Accordance.

 

I use the Outline module, too, but it's rather broad.  What often works well with many of the modules is to open two copies.  In the first attached workspace, I have the ESV Study Bible opened with the texts (NAS95, ESV, & Greek NT) and the EVS Study Bible opened in a separate zone.  That way I can view the more detailed outline along with the text.  In the second shot, I have one of the 'How to . . . ' books opened.  In the third shot, two resources are on the right.

Many of us are used to (and like) the features of a print Bible that have the text divided up into sections with section titles like, 'The Parable of the Lost (Prodigal) Son.'  As those titles are inserted by the publisher of a particular edition and are not part of either the inspired text or the version, you won't find them in the e-versions.  It has been a requested feature but I have no idea as to its status.  I may never happen.  I've just adjusted and found other ways to accomplish the same thing.

 

I hope this is of some help.  There are lots of knowledgable knowledgeable and helpful folks on the forums.  You might want to work through the podcasts.  Dr. J is in the process of redoing the early ones (done in Accordance 8 and 9).  I have always found them helpful.  The recommended order for new users is here.

I've hoped for the same thing, yellowchops.  This thread talks a bit about what you are looking for (if I am understanding your question correctly): http://www.accordanc...topic=8531&hl=+

 

As of right now, there are a few workarounds, but I don't think there's anything like what you are looking for.

This is a feature that is part of most major software packages. I would like to see it implemented in accordance too.

To clarify what I'm looking for, I've screenshoted my ESV Study Bible iOS app where it shows the "section heading."

 

It shows "God's Righteousness Upheld" and "No One Is Righteous."

Thank you, Julie for sharing your workspaces.  I realize they're not part of inspired scripture; however, I did find the section headings to aid in narrowing down the context.

Yellowchops – I agree that they do help, I liked having them in my print Bible.  (It's been a long time since I have used a print Bible!).  We'll have to wait and see if Accordance adds the feature.  I didn't mean to imply that I thought you didn't know that the headings weren't part of the text, but perhaps to propose a reason why they were not a part of the e-text.

No, problem, Julie.  Thank you for your feedback!
