I’ve posted a new update for all versions of MarcEdit this afternoon. Last night, when I posted the new update, I introduced a bug into the RDA Helper that rendered it basically unusable. When adding functionality to the tool to enable support for abbreviations at a subfield level, I introduced a problem that removed the subfield codes from fields where abbreviations would take place.
So what does this bug look like? When processing data, a set field that would look like this:
=300 \\$a1 vol $b ill.
would be replaced to look like:
=300 \\a1 volume b illustrations
As one case see, the delimiter symbol “$” has been removed. This occurred in all fields where data abbreviations were occurring. This has been corrected with this update.
You can get the update from the downloads page: http://marcedit.reeset.net/downloads or via the automated update tool.
