I find myself wishing that more text information, especially the date of the text (edition) were available. Additionally I know of only one way to access the text info and find myself wishing there were an easier way to access it. One way I thought of would be to have the info display in the Instant Detail when I hover over the Text Pane tab or even have it come up as a popup when I hover over the tab. I would like to request a feature enhancement that makes accessing the text info more thorough and accessible.

The information supplied about the modules is stark compared to that supplied by some other Bible software like Logos. Perhaps Accordance can beef up the information provided... here is are screen shots of what Logos provide and what Accordance supplies...

King James Version with Strong’s Numbers

Public Domain

Formatted and corrected by OakTree Software, Inc.

Version 3.2

One thing I would like to see is the date of the edition with as much precision as possible.

We have plans to make the information more accessible. The problem with some of the etexts of public domain texts is that they were acquired many years ago, and the provenance of the etext is not clear. We have no idea what edition(s) were used by the hardworking people who laboriously entered the texts for the good of all.
