Ah... I didn't realize this would be the case--I thought even when commentary series got an upgrade to a new/separate module, a recent 11.0.x update (or was it late in 10?) made some semblance of automatic transferring possible.
I don't believe that is going to happen here, but if I am incorrect, perhaps Helen or Joel will provide correct information, and I can strikethrough my earlier comments :-)
As an aside, this is an issue with all electronic books. I occasionally get an email from Amazon about an update to a Kindle title, which I can optionally upgrade, but in doing so, I will lose both notes and highlights. With Accordance titles, we try to retain both for the user, but some cases are a greater challenge than others.
On the other hand, a few years ago, I found what was a verifiable mistake in a print edition of a Word Biblical Commentary. I contacted Thomas Nelson (this was before they were bought by Zondervan) and reported the error. No matter how many times I pull that print copy off the shelf to check, that error will always be there. I hope it was corrected in later print editions, but Thomas Nelson, and now Zondervan, never offered to send me a free copy of a corrected edition.
Although there are new challenges to digital books, I'd much rather have editions that get corrected at no extra cost. Ultimately, I find the tradeoffs are very much worth it.
