Compare Texts feature question
Posted 14 May 2008 - 11:24 AM
I actually haven't needed to compare more than two texts so far since I've been using Accordance. Yesterday, however, I watched a short video that highlighted some of the features of Logos. One feature was the ability to graphically compare texts. In the video, eight or more texts were being compared at the same time. "Oh, I can do that in Accordance," I thought. But when I opened multiple texts (NIV, NKJV, NET, and ESV) I discovered that the Compare Texts feature only compared two of the open texts rather than all four.
Is there a way to compare more than two texts in Accordance?

For example, if you have KJV, ASV, and NASB and choose the KJV as your standard, the ASV and NASB would highlight where they each differ from KJV, but not how they differ from each other. There really is no practical way to mark where each text differs from every other text, specially if you have 8!
We chose an easy to understand and easy to implement system, which seems to meet the needs of most of our users.

In reality, my question was prompted mostly by curiosity. I know we don't like to get too much into comparisons on this forum (at least that's the impression I've gotten), but as I watched the Logos video I kept thinking to myself "Hum, that's how its done in Logos—I'm glad I chose Accordance. It really works for me."
Again, thanks for the answer to my question.
