If I am arcing a passage which contains a chiasm, it would be nice to reflect that within the arcing module. I realize that arcing is focused on the functional relationships between clauses, whereas literary structure (chiasms, etc.) are simply about form, so these two methods aren’t a perfect fit with each other.
I don’t think that’s possible, unfortunately, because of the visual layout of Arcing and the necessary visual layout of a chiasm. They couldn’t both be in the same space.
Sorry my reply is so late, Chris! I didn’t see this post until now.
Here I’d indent “supply and multiply your seed” further within its line, and then make “and increase the harvest” coordinate with it. That will make it more obvious that both verbs have “he” as their subject.
You could also divide 10a after “supply,” to show that there are actually two verbs there. I’d do that in my phrase, so that you could see the three parallel verbs.
Then the arrow of “for sowing” would go up to the indented phrase “and multiply your seed.”
You did well to extract “who supplies…” from between the subject and verb of 10a.
First of all, thank you very much for this great application that really helps to understand the words of God. May God help you continue with this.
To gain insight into larger bible passages (for example 60 verses), I use the phrase module: indenting a chapter; making sections; notes, etc. However, the performance is unfortunately not sufficient. A single indent takes 4 seconds (the PC is not the problem).
Is it possible to fix this?
@JamesCWilliams Good question! In the Discourse or Phrasing module, click on the Print button to save the Phrase/Arc/Bracket as a JPEG.
Then, once you’ve start to write a forum post, click on the right-most button above the text box. It looks like a cloud with an upward-pointing arrow in it. You can select your JPEG saved on your computer from the window that opens, and it will attach it to your post.
Just make sure it’s not too large - I’ve had trouble with large images. You can save it as a smaller-sized image when you click Print if the image won’t load.
