  • Accordance Version:10.x

Posted 14 August 2014 - 03:30 PM

Hello, everyone.  I'm fairly new to Accordance so forgive me if this feature already exists.  I know that you can select your favorite commentary by placing it first in your library organization; however, it would be nice if we could select our top 3 commentaries by book of the Bible or by type of study.

 

For example, if I go to Acts, I would like my top commentaries to be NICNT & BECNT, but when I go to the Gospel of John I want them to be PNTC & WBC.

 

Also, it would be nice to select a commentary based on my type of study...let's say for the Gospel of John if I'm looking for preaching material I want to refer to commentary X, Y, & Z, but for exegetical work I want resources A, B, & C...etc.  Now I know I can save a workspace, but it would be nice for these commentaries to change per book in this type of study.

 

Hopefully, that makes sense.

Some of these changes are in the works, others, I am not sure can be easily implemented.

Yellowchops. couldn't you use Groups for the last request? A Group of resources for Exegetical work, etc?

 

Helen, maybe an implementation of tags can make groups more flexible and maybe work for what he is asking by filtering searches and amplification using tags.

Thank you for the response, Helen!

davidmedina, I think that may work, but not if I want it to dynamically change based on a pre-selected resource based on a book...hopefully, that makes sense.
