Scribal Changes Recorded per Sura Chart
The Scribal Changes Recorded per Sura chart (found under the ‘Charts’ menu and then under ‘Scribal Changes’) shows you how many scribal changes are recorded for each sura.
|1|| Suras to Show. By clicking the buttons, you can choose whether to plot every sura, just Meccan suras, or just Medinan suras on the chart.
|2|| Sort By. You can either sort your chart by sura (so sura 1 is drawn first and sura 114 last), or you can sort your chart by the number of scribal changes in each sura.
