What do we do to keep both? Surely there's a way to do that, right?

Sorry, that's up to the publisher. They want this update to replace the older release.

Thank you, Mark, for that info.

 

I don't think they (the publishers) should be able to do that. Fixing a typo is one thing. Changing a translation is something else. I think they should have to let us keep what we bought.

 

So I guess we can simply not download the update, right?

 

Seems like this has been addressed before and the solution was that one gets to keep his purchases as they were when he bought them. Seems I recall a new module being issued to be download that had the pre-change text in it, but I don't recall what translation it was. Then again, maybe I'm mistaken.

In the case where a publisher removes a volume from a series, we'll create a separate module of that volume, and make it available to everyone who already owns it.

 

While I understand your desire to keep both versions (and I'd love to see the same thing for historical purposes), in this case the publisher isn't removing a volume, but updating the contents.

 

I can't think of a publisher that allowed a bible translation in Accordance to be offered as a separate volume, unless the translation was considered an entirely separate work (as in the 1977/95 NASB). 

 

As you suggested, the only way to keep the original text of the CSB is not to update it.

When the ESV was updated like this some years ago, I downloaded the update for the ESVS (the version with Strong's numbers) and did not download the update for the ESV without Strong's. That way I had both versions of the text for comparison. 

 

Eventually I stopped caring about keeping the old version and just updated both, but maybe that idea would satisfy you in this case.

 

If you really care about keeping the old versions, make copies of those modules into a separate folder as a backup.

You could backup the CSB17 text and notes from C:\ProgramData\Accordance\Modules (or equivalent in Macs) and run a second instance of Accordance in a virtual machine using the old module files. Though, I think that would use up one of your five allowed running installations.

 

Accordance allowed us to keep NET Bible Editions 1 & 2 simultaneously when ed. 2 was released, but I find myself almost never looking at ed. 1 anymore. Anytime I've compared the text or notes during my studies, they've always been identical. Personally, I've made a backup of CSB17, but I doubt I'll ever try to use it again.

The NET Bible was one of those rare exceptions where the publisher let us keep them distinct.

I may just archive the old (real 2017) version somewhere. I'll probably forget where I put it, but, if I don't and if I want to confirm what was in the real 2017 version, I could just switch them out from the place where they are saved for Accordance (on Mac, I think that's ~/Library/Application Support/Accordance/Modules/Texts) before launching Accordance, and then I'd have the old one.

 

As I understand it, now we'll have the anomaly that the module called CSB2017, once it's updated, will really be the CSB2020.

Yes if the new would call CSB2020 then it would be possible to have them both in Accordance. But I guess this was even not the intention of the publisher. So to "update" was the only solution to replace it.

Eric, you can only update the CSB with Strong's, then you are able to compare the two in the Text.

Just did this and spent some time scrolling through Genesis, quite interesting to see the changes highlighted side by side like this...

 

Is there a way to report the differences or short list them for a particular passage or book? 

 

The CSB has an abbreviated list on their website which is helpful.

Put two Texts in parallel, click "Compare", use the RANGE command to create a range, or select a permanent range, then "Display—>List Text Differences".
