    Default Question about mss pictures

    Are the manuscript pictures complete? For instance, are there screen shots for all of Sinaiticus, entire Bible, including OT and Apocrypha?

    Default mss pictures

    I'm sorry, but the images and transcriptions are NT only.

    Blessings,

    Is there a possibility full shots of the mss will be available in the future?

    Hi xenophon,

    I think that it would be unlikely, but you could send a request to ideas at bibleworks.com with your suggestion.

    Even if the manuscript images weren't tagged like the NT portions are, it'd be great to have them for consultation.

    Yes, I agree that it would be useful to have the images even if we do not have accompanying text versions. We will keep it in mind.

    Default Cannot See Manuscript Photographs With an Active MSS Window

    Anyone know what is preventing BW 10 from allowing me to see the manuscripts, even with an active MSS tab? (I could previously see them, but they've now been unavailable for several weeks.)

    I admit it, I'm a newb...

    Thanks for whoever rescues me

    "Anyone know what is preventing BW 10 from allowing me to see the manuscripts, even with an active MSS tab? (I could previously see them, but they've now been unavailable for several weeks.)"

    Can you be more specific in what you are doing now? For example, some manuscripts do not contain all the verses of the N.T. So, if your browse window is at that verse and you open the Mss tab, it will be empty, but if you click on the arrow to the right of "Choose image file" and pick another manuscript, you might see something. Just guessing.

    Oh thanks, Mark!

    Presently we are working with Ephesians and Colossians. It doesn't seem to matter which actual manuscript of the nine we have available (S. m-01, A. m-02, V. m-03, E.R. m-04, Bez. m-05, C. m-06, Boe. m-012, W. m-032, and m-1141) we're attempting to view; none are providing a manuscript view no matter which verses of these two books we wish to peruse.





    Um...which (left side) Analysis Window tab should be chosen to cause manuscripts to be visible? I'm thinking I've just clicked something somewhere...

    I have Col 1:1 in the Browse window.
    I have only 3 columns, though it should not make a difference if you have four, except that the manuscripts are often quite wide, so I prefer to view them with a wider Analysis Window.
    I can view Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, Vaticanus, and Ephraemi in the "Mss" tab, which is on the right side of my screen, not the left.
    When I view them at 100% magnification, sometimes the margins of the manuscripts are so large that the window appears blank. But when I right click in the Mss tab window and choose "Zoom level," and choose 25%, I can always see some text. You may have to drag it so that you see the part you want.
    Does this help at all?

    BW10 works differently from BW9, in which some images of some of the mss. could be viewed in a separate window. But as far as I can tell the Mss tab has always worked the same in BW 10. If someone accidentally deleted some mss files, that could be a problem.
