DSS English translation bundle
Dear Colleagues: I have recently purchased the DDS ET Bundle (both biblical and sectarian texts). When I activated the modules, they appear separately (QBSET, QSET). However, when I search for them via Display Versions, I see only QBE Dead Sea Scrolls English Biblical text. So should I assume that this contains both biblical and sectarian texts? Am I missing something?
You actually purchased 3 things.
The English Dead Sea Scrolls bundle actually includes 3 separate things:
- The QBE version, which can be treated like any other version in BibleWorks in the search and browse windows. It contains only the biblical writings.
- A BibleWorks Compiled HTML Help module of the biblical writings.
- A BibleWorks Compiled HTML Help module of the sectarian writings.
To access the last two, which include a wealth of notes and background information, on the menu line select
Abegg-Flint-Ulrich, The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible
Wise-Abegg-Cook, The Dead Sea Scrolls (this is the sectarian texts)
I think you will find information in the "Resources" form that will make the "version" form more useful to you.
If you display the version information for QBE (with the analysis window showing, move you mouse pointer over the QBE prefix in the browse window) you will see further information about both 1 & 2 above, and a link to 2.
(The version information display frequently has useful information -- it's worth checking out when you meet a new BibleWorks version)
