I saw that from start, but I regard the headings such low quality that there should be a warning lable inside the software when wanting to show them. Or not to produce them:

And that's why I said optional was the key word.

If you want to go there, I am sure some could argue that the chapter divisions are of such low quality that they should not be included either :D


My top 5 feature requests:
  1. 15pt font size for reading text (bible, journal articles, commentaries, etc...)
  2. Improved searching for Journal articles. (So we can search for journal article by verse + english text)
  3. Display Journal titles in journal search results. (Imagine a google search where you saw the page text but no headings?)
  4. Improved greek text search—i.e. allow searching of all greek text the same way you would search LXX+NT, i.e. LXX+NT+ApocFathers+etc...
  5. Phrase (sympathetic) highlighting.

I was actually going to mention that the other day as it turns out :) But Acc already supports turning them off.

 

Thx

Hey y'all, 

 

I made a new thread asking for optional book names. Attached is a mockup I did. Please voice your opinion on my other thread :-)

From the NASB Committee (on 4/17/17): 

 

We are still hard at work on the current NASB update and continue to make good progress. However, with all the details to review and complexity of the translation process, our work has progressed slower than expected. We now hope to finish most of the editorial around the 4th quarter of 2017 and then begin final proofreading thereafter. The way it looks now, our new goal is to have a first release by the middle of 2018.

Gavin – Thanks for the update.  I'd rather wait a bit longer and have a more careful revision.  Looks like we'll be waiting for another year or a bit more.  It will be longer yet for the premium Bibles (Schuyler, Allan, Cambridge).  I want to get the Schuyler.

Makes me think back to when I was a fourteen- or fifteen-year-old (1969 or 1970) when we lived in La Habra, California, home of the Lockman Foundation which was preparing to release the first complete New American Standard Bible. My Mom did contract proofreading work at home for Lockman, bringing home galleys of sections of books like Exodus and Isaiah. I used to help her. Back then the only options most of us had for non-paraphrased translations were the KJV and the RSV.

All in all the RSV was a pretty decent option, the NASB was preferable to the RSV in many ways, but both very literal. The major defect of the RSV in my mind was the placing in footnotes the gospel additions in Mark/John that fact alone was enough to make one want to avoid it, but one in 1972 it was placed back in the text very similar to its NASB treatment. I was delighted when the thees thous were finally removed in 1995, I would bet 2018s revision will offer many fine tweaks. Athough I expect no earth shattering changes.

I'm really looking forward to it as well.  But we're going to have to contain our enthusiasm.  Looks like mid-2018 at the earliest.  I emailed Pike Lambeth last month.  He's the Executive VP of Lockman.  They're making good progress, he says.  Checking all the details is time consuming.  If I hear anything new, I'll post.
