Hey everyone.
I'm exploring some ideas using the highlighting palette in Accordance. I would love if some (or a lot) of you would share with me what highlighting scheme you are using. Please be as specific as possible if you will.

My primary highlights file has the following styles defined:

8 different repeated word/root highlights
each one is a double underline, solid pattern in a different color.
I use this to mark repeate words/roots/phrases in a particular pericope I'm working with
(Greek) Cognate Accusative; lavender, wide stripe through the middle of the word, solid pattern
I followed David Lang's instructions in one of his bog posts for finding them all and highlighting all hits
(Hebrew) Intensive (Inf. Abs. +impf) Light magenta, wide strip through the middle, solid pattern
Hapax (word occurs only once in Scripture): Purple, underline, |||||| pattern
Inclusio (similar words/phrases bracketing a section of Scripture): Light Turquoise, Box shape, || pattern (two thick vertical lines in the pattern drop down)
Word Play: Very Light Teal, wide stripe through middle, solid pattern
Of Interest: Light Yellow, very wide stripe through middle, solid pattern


I also have A Source Critical Highlights file:
These highlights are full highlighting, solid pattern, in different colors
Mark
Matthean Source
Lukan Source
Q


These highlights are wide (not very wide) stripe through the middle, solid pattern:
Adapted Markan Source (same color as Mark)
Adapted Q (same color as Q)

I haven't gone through and marked all of Matthew and Luke with this yet, just some pieces here and there. (Generally when I was studying a Gospel pericope for Sunday and I found references to the sources.)


Eventually I'd like to add a JEPD (Documentary Hypothesis) set of highlights, too, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. (Actually, I'm hoping that someone else will do it and make it available on the Exchange!)

As you can see, my highlights are pretty geared toward original languages and Biblical criticism. (Although I'll often mark the English translation I'm using to note the original language features I have highlights for).

Hope this helps,

Lorinda

Okay, that is something I would be willing to do. But first it would be helpful to have some common ground. I would assume that there would be different highlights for: J, E, JE, P and D. I am not sure if Friedman should be used. Should the original Wellhausen texts be use?

That's a good question, and one that I'm not really qualified to answer. When I toyed with doing it, I looked at my copy of one of Friedman's books (dating back to the 80's, probably). I remember I was pretty certain there were some errors in some of the charts.

I don't think those were errors - just a very different opinion that hasn't been widely accepted.

Umm, okay... I have no idea what you two are talking about. Anyone else want to weigh in on highlighting schemes?

The point was that this really wasn't on topic for what I was looking for :)

Tom,

I've just started using highlighting too, and I'm keen to hear from others. I'm not sure exactly what you're asking. Are you after what things people are highlighting, like hapax, inclusio, intensive (as Lorinda wrote), or something else?

Hi Ben. Sure, what Lorinda posted was great.... and other schemes as well....

Anything at all I suppose. How about thematic schemes?? Anyone using anything like that?? ie. Green dotted for promises... orange for prophecies...etc..

Anything at all really.. I just don't want to lose track on the thread... while I find the hypothesis presented interesting, it really deserves a post of its own.

There's a great post on the Acc blog by David Lang, that shows you how to highlight the results of searches (in v7). I've found that really helpful. That's the only quick way you could do most of what Lorinda has suggested.

There would be no way (I can think of) to highlight prophecy or promises automatically, that is, highlighting the results of a search. You could certainly do that on your own though.

Edit: forgot the link!

I highlighted the book of Genesis using the Documentary Hypothesis.
J - solid orange
E - solid blue
D - solid yellow (reserved for Exodus)
P - solid green
JE - I used the |||| bar in orange and then also highlighted it with solid blue so that it has alternating orange and blue bars.

I wish there was a way to export highlighting.

You can share the highlighting in four ways, but other programs like word processors do not support it. However, you can:

Print the text with highlighting.
Print it to PDF.
Take a screenshot and save the image.
Share the highlighting file with another user.

I hope this helps.

I use Accordance for my daily bible reading (McCheyne's reading plan) and I love to color up the text so for what its worth here is some stuff I do.

1. Photo Guide Highlights (i.e. if the place has a picture in the Photo Guide) - orange highlight entire word
2. Bible Art reference - Very light green highlight
3. Animation on Atlas Map - Light gray underline
4. Favorite Verses - Double cyan underline
5.Christ- His Character - Single blue underline
6.God (several different colors and formats for different aspects of his character, i.e. Sovereignty, Wisdom, Names, Might, etc.)
7. Hope (A specific focus for this year) - Turquoise underline
8.Prophecy - purple underline

I could go on and on. This is one of my favorite parts of Accordance because I have always loved to mark up my bible when I am reading it. If you get sick of one color or decide you like another format better when you change it all of your previous highlights change as well. You can also search for "styles" so I can pull up an instant list of my favorite verses (for instance) or a bunch of verses on hope. You can also hide color highlighting if you are working with the text.

David has now posted his file on the Accordance Exchange.
