Version 3.41 - 10/21/2011
-- Update - Commentary Fill-in function. Now places fill-in links at the end of the CMTX database.
The Fill-in function for Commentary (CMTX) modules was added to fill in space between commentary entries. If you have created your own commentary, with few entries, the fill in function will point to the next comment or previous comment based on the currently selected verse in e-Sword. A downside of this is that the (!) notification on the commenary tab will always be turned on.
The new version of the commentary fill in works differently that the previous version. Previously, T3 would compare sequential records, and see if there was a gap, and then add a fill-in record. This was OK if all your records were sequential with no overlaps. With the addition of the optional multiple references per comment entry, and source files which have overlaps of references, the old fill-in method of T3 was not "perfect". Thus the this new update.
The new fill-in method works this way; the CMTX database is scanned for all verses with comments. This is then compared with all 31102 Bible verses (Apocrypha is not supported). All verses that do not have a reference is then processed and new fill-in links added. Once the verses that do not have comments is identified, they are placed in an Arithmetic Progressions, and then the links generated, to minimize the number of records needed. One record can cover a whole book if that book has no comments.
Additionally, T3 now puts all the fill-in records at the end of the database. This is so that the record forward and backward buttons in e-Sword will traverse the actual comments. The old method would traverse a comment, then a fill-in record, then a comment, then a fill-in. Now, if you are on a record with a comment, you will go to next comment. If you are in the fill-ins, you will traverse the fill-in records.
The bottom line, the Fill-in function should work better...
