Background: I needed the BHS apparatus in Accordance, so I bought the "Die Mac Studienbibel" collection.

Am I correct that the only way to see the markings for the apparatus is to used the untagged BHS-GBS, and that they aren't hyperlinked to the apparatus itself, but just unlinked superscript in the text? That's not really an issue, but is the only way to use functionally the apparatus and the tagged text to have BHS-GBS, BHS-W4 and the apparatus open simultaneously? You can sometimes tell from the apparatus what is being discussed, but there also have plenty of examples like in Gen. 1:6 (a huc tr 7aa cf G et 9.11.15.20.24.30) where if you didn't have the BHS-GBS open you wouldn't know what was being discussed.

Is there anyway to include the apparatus marks in the tagged BHS-W4? If not, are there any plans to update it to include it, or to offer a tagged form of BHS-GBS?

I'd like to be able to keep BHS, LXX and the apparatus open, but even with a decent sized screen things get a little crammed when you also have to keep BHS-GBS open. Thanks for any help.

I understand the issue but we cannot combine the sigla with the tags in one text at this point in time.

The 'workaround' I have made up is to put my english bible (NIV), the BHS-GBS and the BHS Apparatus in a separate window. I usually look at the variants after my text study so, I have a decent feel for the translation anyway. It's a little inconvenient, but having the apparatus and all the definitions for all those abbreviations handy is worth it.

Here's a solution which has been suggested before on this forum (and which I use):

Set the display text for your apparatus modules to the appropriate text module with the sigla (you can do this by pressing command+t when the apparatus module is selected). Once you've done this, when you hover the mouse over the verse reference in the apparatus module, the instant details box will display the appropriate verse with sigla markers. This allows you to easily view the text with sigla without needing to have that text module open.

Hope this helps!

Is there anyway to purchase the BHS-GBS (the text with the apparatus) separate from the package? I already have the BHS, and I just need the apparatus. Thanks!

At present we have to sell the entire package. Basically you get the apparatus for GNT and BHS with the text with the siglas, and some bonus modules. We would like to license just the apparatus from GBS but this has not been arranged yet.
