Saving Space with the Apparatus

The Apparatus comprises the footnotes to the Greek and Hebrew text which detail the important variants between different manuscripts. These are available on the Studienbibel CD-ROM (others are on the NT Apparatus CD-ROM).

I received this question from a user yesterday (slightly edited):

I am a relative newcomer to Accordance and am very much enjoying the software so far. I have a quick question about a specific module. I like to use the module "NA27-
GBS" often because of its inclusion of the text critical markings, but I often find myself using the "GNT-T" module instead because it's tagged and I can get info in the "instant details" display without looking words up in other windows. I don't like having them both open at the same time because it seems like a wasteful use of the precious screen real estate. So, my question is, are there any plans to produce a tagged version of the "NA27-GBS" any time in the future? I guess the same questions apply to the "BHS Apparatus" as well.

And I thought that my solution might help other users:

Sorry, the apparatus and the text with sigla belong to GBS, but the tagging belongs to others, so the texts will remain separate for the foreseeable future. One solution would be to make the NA27-GBS the hypertext text for the NA27 Apparatus, and the BHS-GBS for the BHS Apparatus. Then, even though the text is not displayed in the window, it appears in the Instant Details as you mouse over the verse reference of the apparatus. You can do this in Set Tool Display when the apparatus itself is in the selected pane, and be sure to click Use as Default.

Great idea, Helen. Any chance you'll be offering the Studienbibel CD-ROM in the Christmas sale?
