Subject: 15.0297 Concordances
Comment: RE: SHK 15.0297 Concordances
I realize this is no substitute for a true concordance, but the Octavo
CD-ROM of F1 has, in addition to the image files of every page, a
substrate of etext that is fully searchable (pdf searchable text), and
will take you serially to every instance of a word. It can be fun and
enlightening, but it is a little quirky, sometimes highlighting in the
page images words that seem to bear no relation to the search term. Also
it is sometimes difficult to adjust the zoom as you move from page to
page, and highlighting a passage to print out can cause highlighting of
adjacent columns as well.
I'd appreciate hearing from others who have used it this way.
