# Labelling a word outside the apparatus in reledmac with \linenumberstyle{alph}

I would ask if it is possible to label a word in order to show his line number outside the apparatus in reledmac package, like is explained here Using reledmac, and referring to page and line numbers outside the \beginnumbering, but using alphabetic numbering. Currently it refers to the relative label with an arabic number, altough the lineation style is set to alphabetic with \linenumberstyle{alph}:

\documentclass[a4paper, 12pt, twoside, draft]{article}

\usepackage{reledmac}

\begin{document}

\linenumberstyle{alph}
\firstlinenum{1}
\linenumincrement{1}

\beginnumbering
\pstart

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor\edlabel{tempor} incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat

\pend
\pausenumbering

\edlineref{tempor} tempor %note that it gives "2", not "b" as intended.

\end{document}


Thank you very much!

• that is obviously a bug, that I will solve quickly. Nov 14 '16 at 9:53
• I also noted that using \edlabelS{yourlabel}…\edlabelE{yourlabel} and \SEref{yourlabel} gives the correct alphabetic lineation Nov 14 '16 at 11:04
• yes, because that call the macro used to print the line number in critical footnote. Nov 14 '16 at 11:11
