I have an error when trying to use the epic epoch script to plot groups of terms.
There is not useful output in the log file but it seems that the script is executed twice :
2022-10-04 11:23:01 INFO : Script Epic Epoch Started

Dear Vincent,
Many thanks for reporting that.
We are facing an issue due to the way CorTexT Manager is using the database management library to store the users’ corpora. It has been added to the known issue section of the epic epoch script.

We know that as it is now, it is not satisfying for users, we have no option to solve it in a short term perspective.

The easiest way for you to deal with this issue, it to use a list indexer only with two lines, and to apply it on the terms variable (you may want to download a the file done by us here) with define-a-custom-list-of-entities option on No and add-a-dictionary-of-equivalent-strings option on Yes.

I hope it helps!!!
