On one of web sites, a Logosian expressed delight he had purchased CNTTS. Mark Ward asked what he planned to do with it. The Logosian seemed to kind of hedge a bit (eg future use).

I have mine color-coded by estimated date and Aland category. It's especially pretty at Easter (eggs). Tip: never link CNTTS without your super-computer handy.

You participated in a discussion about CNTTS: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/178295.aspx 

You run a google search CNTTS Logos Forum and you’ll get many results from people praising the resource and others hoping it was better.  I’d like to have it since I’m retaking Greek and some Textual Criticism courses on my own.  I think it’d be useful for personal study and see how variants differ.  Academic Curiosity.

Not questioning your interest.

But CNTTS illustrates where Bible software is (and more importantly isn't). I think (could be wrong), both Logos and Accordance just dump it out in mss sequence. Formatting, yes. But to a large degree, it's 1980s computing. Now, you could argue 'apparatus! unimportant!'. True. But whether devotionals, maps, personal-publishing (tomorrow night's Bible class), or theology, the game remains dump-format-tag. Dump-format-tag. Play it again, Sam.

Thanks Denise! that’s why I’m not in a rush; if anything I’m hoping for it to be included in a base package or expansion in the future.  I know it’s not something I’m gonna be using a lot just for reference. It’s one of those nice to have resources but not a must at this time.

Denise is correct regarding the CNTTS format. BibleWorks, now defunct, had a great module for the CNTTS that really organized the data well.

Currently using CNTTS is like opening the coded messages during WW2. Some enthusiasts may like it.

I figured that much, that’s why I posted about updating it and making it functional.

I still use Bible Works for this feature.
