I would greatly appreciate having the Textual Apparatus for both NA27-T and UBS4-T combined.  Since both of these texts are the same, except that NA27-T has the peculiar Nestle style symbols, there should be no necessity to bring up both NA27-T & UBS4-T side by side.  The NA27-T text could be displayed. Then when the cursor is on a symbol, in Instant Details you would see the NA27-T apparatus.  But if you put the cursor on the verse number, the UBS4-T apparatus would come up!  The symbols tell you when there is significant textual variation; the verse number (UBS4-T) gives you the more thorough (& easier to understand) data on really major variants.  For those who have bought both modules, there could be some way to activate this -- perhaps automatic when you display NA27-T & own the other module.

There are subtle differences between the texts mainly with paragraph divisions and capitalization. While combining the apparatuses is an interesting idea, it isn't something that we could do for licensing reasons.

 

Thanks for the feedback.

You are saying that if a person has bought both modules and had paid for both apparatuses, there would be a licensing agreement forbidding activating both apparatuses at once so that putting the cursor on a Nestle symbol brought up the NA27-T apparatus, but putting the cursor on the verse number brought up the UBS4-T apparatus for the verse?  (eliminating the need to have both texts displayed in parallel in separate windows)  This is not really a request to combine apparatuses, but to combine display potential.  Instead of saying "Combine," I should have said enable the display them both at will, keyed off of NA27-T.  

 

Are you sure?
