Is there any way that I can add the Translation Comparison to an existing workspace or does it have to remain in its own window? I really like Accordance 10 and am finding that I am using it more now on my MacBook Pro 13". Thank you.

As long as you have two translations of a text in the same tab, both in the same language, you can compare them by checking the box in the lower left portion of the search entry area (to the right of the context slider bar and "verse x of y").

Rick - It only compares the first version with the one to its right, and that makes sense. Comparing more than two English versions would become very confusing.

I just did an experiment and opened four different "essentially literal" English versions. I checked the Compare box and got all the marks to show the differences between the first two texts. I then dragged (drug?) a different version to the second pane, and it was the one that was compared.

When I put two Greek texts (GNT-T and GNT-TR) and two English versions (NAS95 and NKJV) in the same tab, the Compare will compare the English versions to each other and the Greek texts to each other at the same time no matter in what order I put them. Cool!

Julie (and Rick)

Actually you can compare more than two translations of the same text (or in the case of original languages, more than one version). Simply go to the "compare text" section of preferences (cmd-,) and in the under right under "type" select "multiple texts" from the drop-down menu. The default is single text (comparing two texts). You can also set what you are comparing (word, lemma, tags) among other things.

Preferences is a great place to explore and customize Accordance.

That did the trick and thanks everyone. Set it to a separate tab. Learning all the nuances will take some time.

Thanks, Michael. Guess I need to study the Prefs. But where would the fun be if we stopped learning?
