Hi Rick,

 

Now that the Ugaritic Tagged Texts have begun to appear, does Acc intend on acquiring A Manual of Ugaritic by Pierre Bordreuil and Dennis Pardee?

If so, I'll wait for it in Accordance.

 

Thanks, and regards,

 

Michel

Eisenbrauns provides a PDF of the book and plates with the hard copy. It'd be a nice companion for Accordance, but in the meantime, you will still have an e-version.

Hi Robert,

 

Thanks. I do have access to the Adobe Digital Edition through my library, but by design it doesn't copy and paste correctly. If Acc was going to acquire it, presumably it would copy and paste correctly, so I would put up with my version until then. But now I know I'll have to get it elsewhere.

 

I was hoping that even if Acc wasn't actively pursuing A Manual, it was trying to acquire other Ugaritic works to support and build on Peter's database. Personally, I would like to see Pardee/Bordreuil, Sivan, Tropper, Smith/Pitard, and DULAT, all hyperlinked to the UDB Texts, Peter's database, commentaries, especially Dahood's Psalms, and COS (and DULAT and HAL hyperlinked). These would provide comparative notes on a substantial portion of the Ugaritic texts. I would also like to see Peter add syntax tags to his provisional work, to just go with something. Finally, I'd like a blank line added to Instant Details that I could edit myself, especially given the nature of these texts and the provisional nature of some of the tagging details.

 

Thanks again, and regards,

 

Michel

Michel,
Interesting. The pdf I received with my copy allows me to copy and paste directly into a word file, so I can create my own commentary on B&P's text. Yours doesn't?

Anyway, what you're describing w.r.t. the instant details is mostly achievable through a user note, no? (I will admit, I don't use Accordsnce to its fullest, so I'm clueless in some of these things.)

Hi Robert,

 

Here is a sample from ADE.

 

Attached File  Manual, ADE.PNG   40.36KB   0 downloads

 

and the same pasted in Word 365 Pro in W10 Pro:

If yours copies and pastes correctly, maybe it's true, UT is better than McGill. :unsure:  :) 

 

Regarding User Notes, they are limited to verses and they aren't as convenient to use. I'm used to notes on single words in Logos, and hovering over them to see them. Since I make so many text critical notes, e.g., considering a note in BHS and/or HAL, playing around with paleo Hebrew fonts to see when certain types of copying errors might have been possible, and adding notes from versions or my own personal ones. There are so many garbled verses in the HB that a note on a verse can become quite long. If there was a blank line in ID, I would use it to summarize my findings, be able to consult it instantly, and consult a User Note for more details. It's actually something I asked for the first week I bought Acc.

 

I guess it doesn't hurt to bring it up again in a Feature Requests forum.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

Ok, I just tried it again, and you're correct. It's been a couple years. I guess I ran a bunch of replacements to fix most things, and I like my own layouts anyway. I do that even with Accordance modules (though the copy-and-paste is obviously better than what we have from the B&P PDF).
