Honestly, I don't understand how to use the subline numbering feature. I would expect to be able to refer to the first of two identical words in the lemma of the apparatus.

For example:

Tertia est – supposito, quod sint passiones totius coniuncti, cum non insint toti nisi ratione partium –, cui parti corporis uel animae debeant attribui, utrum uegetatiuae aut sensitiuae aut

2.1 aut ] om. M

Here the 2.1 lets us know that the lemma refers to the first instance of aut in the second line. Isn't this possible? I don't understand the use or function of subline numbers as described in the documentation.

  • subline number are ... sublines number. Line can have number or subnumber. That means you can have lines like 1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 2, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3. – Maïeul Dec 21 '14 at 18:32
  • That has nothing to do with the possibility to make distinction between to occurence of the same word... – Maïeul Dec 21 '14 at 18:33
  • but, indeed, the actual version of eledmac is buged for subline feature. – Maïeul Dec 21 '14 at 18:40
  • this bug with subline is now closed in the dev version. Let me work for the problem of a terme in two time. – Maïeul Dec 21 '14 at 19:47

    Well, I completely misunderstood the feature then. But it would certainly be a huge help with automatic distinction between identical words in a line. Should I create a feature request on Github? – Stenskjaer Dec 23 '14 at 14:41

The new version 1.15.0 (uploaded yesterday in CTAN)

  • fixe the bug with \subline feature
  • add new feature to prevent lemma ambiguity. This is work with a new command : \sameword, to mark the words potentially ambiguous.

See the MWE

Leo \sameword{aut} ursus \sameword{aut} oryx \sameword{aut} ricinus \sameword{aut} equus \sameword{aut}
lupus \edtext{\sameword{aut}}{\Afootnote{et}} canis \sameword{aut} felix \sameword{aut} asinus \edtext{\sameword{aut}}{\Afootnote{et}} burricus.
