Base text - supplied text
Answer

I recently noticed that the base text being loaded when transcribing is no longer the na28 but some form of majority text/textus receptus/Robinson-Pierpont.

Can someone confirm which text is being used?

I suggest that the default "supplied text" in the gap-menu should be the same as the base text as there is a risk of falsely labelling the supplied text as na28 in the case of a lacuna if the base text and the default supplied text do not conform when in fact the text is not a na28 text.

Can you give a link to the page you are using when transcribing as well as to the NT book that appears to show the "wrong" base text. Thank you.

Thank you for your reply.

I now realise that base texts are project-specific and that I have been confused by this.

I transcribe the Pastoral Letters as part of the MOTB Greek Paul Project. If I want to transcribe a page on the INTF (general) site, I get a NA28 base text, but when I want to transcribe the same page on the project site, I get a text I think is Robinson-Pierpont (or some other TR/M-text).

So I don’t think there is a problem after all since the change of base text is not global for the VMR
