      Hi Milan,


      Welcome. I suspect you won’t find too many programmers on this particular list, although I think that learning spoken languages and programming both require the ability to recognise patterns.


      Unfortunately, I have been frantically busy lately so haven’t had time to look at the new parts of Marcion, but it sounds great.

      you are absolytely correct, text based on numbering lines and pages of
      codices cannot be searched directly. my system is not perfect, because
      among search results can be matched also nonexistent word, but all
      relevant ocurrences are always 100% matched. for obtaining to best
      result regular expressions are powerful tool. is very good learn about
      them, they are widely used on all platforms in many software.

      and iam pleased that my work is useful for you, this is goal of my work.
      iam programmer from my childhood, so coding is not hardest part for me.
      on other side, coptic language iam learning around 2 years, which is
      insufficient, so iam learning systematically during developing this
      software. is true that i made it alone, but other developers are welcome
      to join, here is still many work to do.

        and also, if it is not very annoying for anyone, there are two forums named help  and open discussion (accessible also in marcion, application menu help->... forum). so if someone has any commentary, copy it please there also, because of many users with similar problem can find solution there easily.

        thank you
