Sorry for the break ... I've run into a series of tips that no longer quite work as you may have guessed from my bug reports.

1. Before the advent of the propositional outline feature, I had created a visual filter for time and place markers as change in time and place is one indicator of a pericope break. To do this I went through several steps:

  • use Louw-Nida coding to determine my categories.
  • create a Highlighting Palette for the visual tagging of time and place terms
  • create a Visual Filter tying the Louw-Nida coding in Reverse Interlinear Bibles to the styles in the Highlighting Palette
  • turn the Visual Filter on in your Bible

The same technique works for any Louw-Nida category including discourse markers and relations , Mowinkel Jeremiah source coding, Eissfeldt Hexateuch source ... I'd be interested in what similar visual filters others have made as I know I received some of my filters and ideas for filters from others. (George Sommel is responsible for Mowinkel and Eissfeldt).

2. With the advent of the propositional outline, the filter can supplement the outline by highlighting the word in the phrase justifying the classification of "location" or "temporal". Comparing the lexical based Louw-Nida to the discourse/phrase based Propositional outline assists in learning both systems.

Other examples:

Note especially that two harness the data Logos provides, the user sometimes needs to go through multiple steps .... the power is often not in what is immediately presented but in what one can do using it.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I like that. Thanks for the tip. Looking at Lexham Propositional Outline Glossary, the following labels could be used to look for changes that signal a new periscope:

  • for change of participant: Arrival, Departure, Agency, Accompaniment, Recipient, Sender, Witness
  • for change of time: Temporal, Setting, Ultimate
  • for change of location: Location
  • for change of event: Action, Jesus-Action, Divine-Action, Event
  • for change of topic: Topic, Conclusion, Summary, Consequence, Exhortation, Exhortation (Neg.), Reorientation

This is just a suggestion, I haven't tested it yet.

It would be nice if these labels could be made more visual so they stick out from the rest, like highlighting them with a visual filter or so. Is there any way to do this?
