I'm doing translation exercises from the gospels and putting them in user bible format so I can import the "bible" into Acc where I would then be able to do comparisons with other texts. So far so good and I got it off the ground. But inevitably a question or two. I noticed that the chapter number is not appearing next to my translation. Would this work if I was using paragraphing ? Should I be able to see what one normally sees for a regular bible - ie. that the Book name, the chapter number and the verse number appear at the beginning of each para. and thereafter just the verse numbers ? I tried adding paragraph markers to the text - currently only John 1:6 and 1:7 for testing.
I also tried adding John 1:1 with bogus text and a paragraph marker because of one reading I made of this doc :
You can use any text editor software to convert styled text to plain text with these codes.
- Paragraph marks are denoted by use of the paragraph marker (¶) with a single space on each side. If paragraphs are used, a paragraph marker must appear after the reference of the first verse of the first book, otherwise Accordance assumes there are no paragraphs in the text. The marker should also appear at reasonable intervals throughout the text.
But to no avail. I appear to get no chapter numbers. I've attached a screen grab - on the left is the UBS 4 with Book Ch:verse at each para and verses within para's and then on the right my fragment with only the Book initially with either chapter or verse, I cannot tell which, some missing verses - because I haven't translated those, and the 6 and 7. And both of those have paragraph markers in them as per the doc, ie. after the chapter:verse marker with a space on either side, as below :
John 1:1 ¶ The first verse for testing.
6 ¶ A man came, having been sent from God, his name is John.
7 ¶ He came ....
