Mac and Windows Bug Fixes

Version 13.1.4 (September 24, 2020)

Amplify to Construct Fixes

  • Several Holmstedt Syntax database issues, mainly related to proper building of compound forms and null forms.
  • Improved handling of Holmstedt Syntax database consecutive nulls.
  • When a text selection crosses sentence boundaries.

Construct Searching Fixes

  • In the Construct tab with the Search Both Directions checkbox enabled, fixed a searching issue within a phrase or clause in which the column depths are not the same within that phrase or clause.
  • Several problems related to searching a Construct tab with either nulls or compound forms, mainly for the Holmstedt Syntax database.
  • Searching the ETCBC Syntax database when including a subphrase in the Construct tab.

Tutorial Fixes

  • Where a Tutorial step initiates a progress bar and it was possible to click the "Do It For Me" button to initiate the same action again, which in some cases would cause a crash.
  • Tutorial steps that cause a progress bar could cause the Tutorial to get out of sync. Now the continue button will not be clickable until all progress bars have closed.
  • Crash when exiting a Tutorial during a step that caused a progress bar. Now exiting a Tutorial stops any active progress bars.
  • Crash that could occur when attempting to open a differences tab during a Tutorial.

Miscellaneous Fixes

  • The text search will now work properly when there is any term connected with the @ sign to a character search term (a letter preceded by a period).
  • When using Goto/navigating to certain verses in an out-of-order sequence.
  • Where Modules couldn’t be opened in Parallel to other Modules if their name and abbreviated name were the same characters with different capitalization.
  • A search for a single verse while showing a Parallel Text could sometimes fail. This would only happen if showing all context, and if scrolled to a verse that is present in the main pane but missing in the parallel pane.
  • Where the highlighting of compared Text panes would not print.
  • Where User Items added to the Timeline could overlap if there were many in the same subregion in the same time period.
  • Issue that was causing the “World” region to always be drawn at max height.
  • Where imported User Notes files would offset styles in some cases.
  • Easy Install issue that incorrectly limited the availability of new modules.
  • Where toggling a category checkbox in the Wifi Sync dialog didn’t update its subitems.
  • Crash that would occur when clicking Copy to Clipboard button in the Stack.
  • Crash that could occur when hitting enter in the Goto box if it was empty.
  • Crash that could occur if there was an error while opening a Construct from a saved workspace.
  • Crash that could happen in the Atlas if a region name was selected when switching to a region set with fewer regions.

Version 13.1.3 (July 29, 2020)

Timeline Fixes

  • Where Timeline Item scripture links weren’t found if they were the end of the Timeline details information, such as for User Items with no description.
  • Timeline items that were searched for but not already present among the displayed items could overlap with displayed items.
  • Timeline items could be added to a custom list multiple times.
  • Issue that would prevent deleting custom items in the Timeline.
  • Where users who updated to the Enhanced Timeline wouldn’t get the settings files updated properly.

Other Fixes

  • A Research pie chart could be blank if the class popup menu was set to “Version”.
  • Where clicking a section in Research pie chart could add “KEY” to the title instead of “ANY”.
  • Searching of characters such as brackets in Hebrew tagged texts now will avoid selection of other words near the brackets, such as Ketiv/Qere.
  • The Syntax Tree pane for Greek would show duplicate forms of words surrounded by brackets.
  • The Text “Ugaritic Tagged” would not show up in the “Other Texts” list in the Amplify menu.
  • When comparing texts, the Ignoring Hebrew Pointing didn’t apply to a lexical comparison.
  • Improved the TEXT command to account for a Text difference that shows an added word, and not even attempting to traditional Word Match that word, to avoid a bad hit elsewhere in the verse. e.g. THGNT-T Acts 20:4 adds “Ἀσίας” which would be incorrectly mapped to GNT28-T’s “Ἀσιανοὶ”.
  • Improved algorithm that determines whether or not to insert missing verses into the source Pane.
  • When the dot-dash Highlight pattern would only be drawn once instead of repeating.
  • Instant Details issue preventing External Tool Links preview from being filled.
  • Ability to Amplify and preview links to Ugaritic books.
  • Added error checking when previewing an External Link to better handle incorrect syntax.
  • The “Continue Setup” button would overlap the “Download All” button on new installations.
  • Where deleting a Highlight style would instead delete the previous Highlight style.
  • Links to modules were not falling back on the replacement module if the linked module was not available.
  • Certain characters could be cut out during “Copy as Citation” with a certain combination of Citation preferences. This was because the "Copy text as one block" was supposed to be greyed out if the "Show as:" popup menu in the Contents References section is set to "After Verse" or “Above Verse”, but would not be greyed out when the dialog opens, only when this popup was changed.
  • A Research Cache corruption that could cause a crash in some circumstances.
  • Crash that would occur when selecting “Convert Items to Custom List” in the Timeline menu.
  • Crash that could occur when loading a workspace containing a Timeline if User Items displayed in that Timeline had been deleted.
  • Crash that occurs when searching Greek syntax, in which variant forms are searched.
  • Crash that could occur when right clicking on the icon to add a User Note.
  • Crash that could occur when importing a user bible if the user chose a name containing invalid unicode characters. There will now be an error message warning about invalid unicode for file types that don’t support a unicode name.
  • Crash that could occur if attempting to load a font or font style that doesn’t exist.

Version 13.1.2 (July 2, 2020)

Tutorial Fixes

  • Where clicking on a highlighted (default) button that didn’t actually close the dialog, like the Tutorial Continue button, would lose its highlight.
  • When amplifying to an item during a Tutorial, now the amplify doesn’t go to another open tab in an unrelated workspace.
  • Opening a Map or Timeline within a Tutorial would skip some draw actions due to the Tutorial dialog moving.
  • When opening a Map or Timeline within a Tutorial, the default zoom/location is used, rather than the last, for a more consistent experience.
  • Cases when finding Timeline items in a Tutorial, where user items were confused with extra times.
  • Issue that prevented Tutorial access in the Timeline Find dialog.

Map and Timeline Fixes

  • Significantly improved the view when zooming the Timeline to one or more items.
  • Various optimizations to better manage the increased Timeline data.
  • Opening a Map or Timeline tab would sometimes have trouble determining whether to use the last location or not.
  • When setting the initial Timeline zoom for multiple items that didn’t calculate the position within a region correctly.
  • Issue when searching for user items on the Timeline.
  • Wwhere a Timeline Report was reporting items in their absolute class order, which placed religious leaders before their political period. Now the order reflects the dialog class order, which also fixes the issue.
  • Various issues when installing new Timeline in Easy Install.

Transfer Highlight Fixes

  • Issue that would cause the Highlights to be removed from one Tool but not be moved to the more modern Tool.
  • When the transfer Highlight options in the window menu were not functioning.
  • Where the Transfer Highlight options in the window menu would not update to reflect changes in the Highlight file.

Syntax Tree pane Fixes

  • Now the word list on the pane to use the actual words shown in the Text, including any extra marks used with the word, such as a maqqef (_) or sof pasuk (:). Previously the words were generated by using words from the inflected word list.
  • Removed the display of the words kk and qq, since these were used only as special place holders for ketiv/qere words in the Hebrew Text.
  • Ability to scroll to the bottom branch of the last verse of a Text. Previously it would only scroll to the top of the last verse.

Other Fixes

  • Case when Paper endnotes were scrambled.
  • Potential Research Cache corruption.
  • Flex Search words with a wildcard * character would not be treated the same as other words.
  • Searches using a range condition would not work if the list of ranges contained two consecutive or overlapping ranges.
  • The new TEXT word count options would get confused with an exact (=) search.
  • Shift-click Search from a key number Analysis graph would fail.
  • Issue that was preventing amplifying to a Parallel.
  • When the “About this Text” window would not open from the right click menu in a Diagram Pane.
  • Where the "Daily Reading" menu and the right click "Construct" menu were getting mixed up.
  • Any unique colors in a footnote didn’t always get added to the RTF color table. This could occur if a Tool citation had an embedded accord URL, which is now colored blue.
  • Where notes within a User Notes file could be deleted when syncing with Dropbox.
  • Errors related to conversion of the Yehudit font to the Rosetta (transliteration) font, for the following Hebrew characters: yud, sere, and hireq.
  • Crash that could happen when mousing over the “Add Note” icon in a Tool that is parallel to a Text.


Version 13.1.1 (June 9, 2020)

 

  • Issue that prompted ‘Where is Time Data?’ alert.
  • Where My Toolset Tools would possibly be skipped if the Toolset wasn't alphabetically organized.
  • Errant beeping if performing Research using a LINK command.
  • Crash if doing an (All English) Search with a (LINK) command.
  • Issue when navigating by Mark button in a User Tools tab.
  • Copy As Citation:
    • When the embedded accord URL would be removed if any of the options that would strip vowels/cantillations/accents/breathing marks applied to the cited text.
    • Crash when copying non Unicode with the embedded accord URL.

Version 13.1.0 (June 6, 2020)

Interface Enhancements

  • Tweaked Construct drawing of vertical dividers and column shading to not overlap its horizontal dividers.
  • The title for an Analytics graph would not be changed to the appropriate font color for Dark Mode.
  • The popover information in a Research Analytics pie chart would not update its background color in Dark Mode.
  • Clicking on text where Instant Details are available should force the Instant Details for that text to show. This should have no effect for most users since the Instant Details will update when the mouse is moved over the text, but Windows Tablet users should now see Instant Details when clicking on an item.
  • Content autoscroll during a drag:
    • Optimized autoscroll during a drag for a more consistent scrolling action throughout Accordance.
    • Now the scroll speed is based on the distance to the edge.
    • Fixed the Info Pane, Stack, Paper, Diagram, and Library autoscroll.
    • Added autoscrolling to the Construct, so a high palette item can be dragged to a lower place on the construct, or other cases.
  • Various improvements to the Zone and Table Of Contents divider tracking.
  • Tweaked the cursor to perfectly line up on pane divider dragging with the actual drag area.
  • Improved the dragging of a horizontal pane divider from the top side, when it is over the text view.
  • Improved the UI when opening a syntax or WordMap file from the Finder/Explorer. If the file isn't installed it attempts to add it. It also will move/copy the file to the correct location, and open a search tab with that database open.
  • Applied new logic when opening saved tabs (not workspaces or sessions): Now the tab is added to an existing open workspace, similar to the logic used with a Cmd/Ctrl-N or Amplify.
  • The “About Accordance” window now has a right click menu that will allow certain useful system information to be copied to the clipboard.

Intertextual Searching Improvements

  • To get better results when specifying TEXT word counts, now variants are better handled for TEXT searches. If a result is part of a variant sequence, then the entire variant sequence is used for the matching. This enables searches like {NIV11-GKE 120} to match all three Hebrew words used in that construction.
  • Improved Intertextual Searching to ignore variants, when their lexical form is the same. This causes better alignment when one of the two texts had a variant form for tagging, but the other did not.

Searching Improvements

  • Significantly sped up the loading of Research results with many hyperlinks.
  • Enhanced searching for a variant form's alternate variation.

Significant Info Pane optimizations

  • Now the pictures are read directly from the book cover cache.
  • Improved searching for loaded module names, book cover names, and commentaries.
  • Better memory management of loaded module information.

Syntax Tree pane Improvements:

  • Optimized the rendering of the Syntax tree as it is being redrawn, scrolled, or adjusted in size.
  • When viewing the Syntax Tree pane to the right or left of the Text, made the Tree display much more stable as verses are scrolled.
  • Several issues when drawing the Syntax Tree correctly when the pane is below rather than to the side of a text.
  • Improved scrolling interaction by allowing diagonal scrolling (H + V at the same time), such as from a trackpad.
  • Improved the display of speech for ETCBC when setting the nodes to display their codes.
  • Improved the buffer space between a node and its connecting lines.
  • Improved the “target area” of a node, when viewing the Instant Details of the node, to fit more closely to the size of the node. That is, the “target area” will be wider for nodes that have more details in them.
  • A subtle “jog” that sometimes occurs when rendering a node line at the same word level.
  • Missing lines in the Holmstedt Syntax Tree near the compound word nodes.

Importing/Exporting Content Improvements

  • Currently, when exporting (Copy or Save as Text File) Text Browser content with multiple verses shown, the verses are grouped by translation. Added a new export option to interleave the verses (grouped by verse).
  • Certain Interlinear table exports will now export more cleanly.
  • Copying as a citation from a Text, Tool, or Stack will now put the URL as a hyperlink on the title when pasted into an app that recognizes RTF formatting. This also applies when copying a Stack item that was added from a Tool.
  • When converting Hebrew text to transliteration, the hard-space character is no longer removed, unless it is part of a whole word, such as a word with a final nun followed by a kamatz vowel point.
  • Added an Export preference to make dragged-and-dropped content formatted by the citation formatting preference.
  • Improved styling support for incoming content from Drag and Drop.
  • Changed the export of Greek and Hebrew to unicode to be fully decomposed, rather than electing to use Extended Greek (U+1F00…) or Presentation Hebrew (U+FB20…) forms. This is due to an incompatibility with Nota Bene.
  • Since Greek and Hebrew now export decomposed, improved the Unicode -> Language recognition for these ambiguous combining diacritical marks.
  • Changed import and export of Hebrew caret from ^ (U+005E) to U+2038. Although it is still not a diacritic, it is smaller and lower.

Wifi sync Improvements

  • During WiFi sync, added support for creating folders on the desktop based on the incoming folder structure of user files from the device, and placing the incoming files within said folders.
  • Corrected sync logic for device-only Stacks, Papers, and Highlights to default OFF rather than ON.
  • Improved the Sync dialog to not allow two sync initiations to happen at once. Once one sync begins, the 'Connect' button is dimmed while starting the sync, preventing a second sync start until the first has failed or completed.
  • Updated icon in Select Mobile Device dialog to latest Accordance Mobile icon.

Miscellaneous

  • A Web Browser can now save and load from Workspace file properly regardless of how long the url is.
  • Various pane text rendering issues when using Copy As Interlinear.
  • Where “Copy as Resource Link” would mess up certain unicode searches.
  • Selection rectangles in the Library can now be drawn even if starting at a source node, such as “Texts” or “Tools”, although the source node itself will not be selected.
  • The context menu for user items in the Library now has the option to show the file location in the system file browser.
  • The “About This Module” pop up will adjust its width to fit longer titles.
  • Where the Diagram database couldn’t do ‘About This Text’ if its pane had not been displayed yet.
  • Crash when searching for a blank inflected for (“ “) and RANGE command.
  • Possible crashes when reading User Notes files that have not been updated to new format.
  • Updated Help for 13.1.

Searching fixes

  • Where wildcard searches containing parentheses would not work with Flex Search.
  • Words that were variants could be highlighted as hits when searching a Greek tagged text, even if they were not variants of the word being searched.
  • When certain searches wouldn't switch from verses to flex when they should. Specifically, searches that contained an "f" somewhere, and also a "-".
  • Rendering issue with the [HITS=k tabname] command and a unicode tabname.
  • A leading = in a TEXT search would cause the contents to be styled in English.
  • Where extra search conditions for Texts would not be visible unless the tab was positioned at the left of the Workspace.
  • When the plus icon to add extra search conditions could move off the right side of a narrow tab.
  • When displaying hit results in a Tool, sometimes hits would not be displayed.
  • Where selecting an item in a Book Chart analysis would inadvertently open the Intertext Select dialog.
  • If “Intertext” was set as the default Analysis graph class, then a blank graph was opened for a non-Intertext search.
  • Where the Analysis class popup for keyed Texts would take on the opposite value of what it should have been.
  • Analysis graphs would revert to the default class when loaded from file, rather than using the class saved to the file.
  • The title of an Analysis tab would not update when the linked Search Text was changed to a different Text.

User Content fixes

  • The incorrect placement of the disclosure triangle for a Paper item with a hidden outline marker.
  • When the font bar in an Edit window would not update to reflect changes made via the “Display -> Style” menu.
  • Problem with the recent “Automatically update User Notes after editing” feature that caused it to also apply to User Tools.
  • Where “Hidden” (appearance of the linked text has been changed) verse hyperlinks would not respect the preference to open in a Text Browser.
  • Where the “Remove Link” button would not function if the link was the first style in a note.


Version 13.0.5 (April 10, 2020)

Fixes for new version 13 features:

  • Significantly improved the ability to erase pen highlights using the Live Eraser. Shapes can now be erased by clicking anywhere on their actual shape.
  • Multiple issues when undoing and redoing pen Highlights.
  • When some User Files menu options were incorrectly available when in a Tutorial.
  • Cases when Right-click Tutorial actions would refer to the wrong control/Tab.
  • The "Enabled" checkbox in the Highlight palette will no longer become checked when the Highlight file is switched.
  • The state of the "Enabled" checkbox in the Highlight palette will now be retained after opening and closing the "Define highligh styles" dialog.
  • Highlight dialog case when the Highlight after the selected Highlight would be deleted.
  • Where the Highlighting buttons that pop up when text is selected would not change if the selection was changed by the arrow keys.
  • PDF import fixes (NOTE: applies to new imports of PDFs):
    • Improved support for converting decomposed Greek Unicode to Helena, so the accents won’t set the font to Rosetta.
    • Multiple word alignment errors.
    • Field error where words following immediately a verse reference would be placed in the wrong field.
    • Word alignment error where words immediately following a scripture reference wouldn’t reset their language, for determining what is a character.

Searching fixes

  • Significant improvements to the Strongs-GK conversion for Live Click:
    • Issue when quickly loading a module’s contents that occasionally skipped certain parts of the content.
    • Crashes and missing search results for certain key Texts.
    • Improved matching for multi-lexical keys by aligning any of the lexical forms.
    • Improved matching when dealing with minor vowel variation.
    • Where the corrected key number was not used when loading the actual results to display, or when opening the Search tab.
  • Case when picking a Text in the TEXT dialog would not set the entry text to the correct font, which caused Israeli keyboard settings to be ignored for the first character.
  • Where a TEXT command in certain Syntax Constructs wouldn’t be processed correctly and searched, since the calls checking for Intertext weren’t going inside of clauses/phrases.
  • Where TEXT commands linking to unicode Texts would not render the search terms in unicode.
  • Quick Entry issue where the shortcuts shown for search Commands would not represent the actual shortcuts as they appear in the keyboard shortcut preferences.
  • Certain Syntax Constructs that lead to blank analytics.
  • Where a word with two+ key number variants wasn’t searched correctly, as the variant code was only expecting variants in Lex or Tag types.
  • Now when amplifying from a word with multiple key numbers Accordance will use ‘@‘ instead of ‘AND’, since @ is needed for information on a single word, and AND now expects results in different word locations.
  • When opening a Tool verse reference in the Text Browser would not work if only displaying Articles or Paragraphs.
  • Where MTLXX and Syntax data couldn’t be loaded for a search analytics at the same time.
  • Where loaded MTLXX and/or Syntax data wasn’t propagated to the Results used by the Pie or Bar charts.
  • When ‘smart amplify’ing from the Analysis tab would grab the root instead of lexical form.
  • Amplifying to the Timeline would sometimes open a new Timeline tab, even though the word appeared in an existing Timeline tab that was set to recycle, and using the default Timeline dating preference.
  • The Instant Details for search links when the search was for a number would mistakenly retrieve the Instant Details for the paragraph number.
  • Issue with Instant Details from a Concordance if “European Verse Notation” was turned on. Specifically, it wouldn’t work if the book was an abbreviation ending in a period.
  • Instant Details would sometimes not update properly in a Text or Reference List tab where the contents had recently changed.
  • Expanded Instant Details issue where the displayed info could revert to the wrong word.

Interface fixes:

  • When changing the font size in a Text Browser pane would not cause the pane to resize.
  • Improved Interlinear extra width drawing in a unicode RTL text (e.g. Quran) to account for inserted RTL markers and the fact it is RTL, but not reversed characters.
  • For ideographic languages, like Chinese, Interlinear extra widths will now be inserted at any character, rather than looking for a space.
  • Improved Tool picture rendering to not attempt to draw a box if the picture is too narrow or thin.
  • Support for systems localizing their dates in unicode (e.g. Hebrew).
  • When the menu labels “Greek Syntax” “Holmstedt Syntax” and “ETCBC Syntax” would not respect localization.
  • When controls were overlapping the zone title if the "Hide tab area if only a single tab" preference was turned on.
  • Dark Mode improvements:
    • Fixed embedded Tool diagrams’ (e.g. genealogies) draw colors.
    • Text color in the List All Books tab
    • Export color of copied Stack items.
    • The Atlas and Timeline zoom buttons are now inverted.
    • Atlas and Timeline legend.
    • Atlas scale.
    • Timeline frame (archeological period, region, year ruler) and selected item details bubble.
    • Time report background.
  • Significant User Notes in Dark Mode improvements:
    • Restored the theming of user black text to white if in Dark Mode. However, now it also only occurs if their display choices are one of our default themes, so we know the background is good.
    • The initial theme for a User Notes tab will now adjust to Dark Mode.
    • The default text color of the Edit tab to be a true black, to match the other Dark Mode choices.
    • Issues causing User Notes preference choices to not be handled consistently.

User Content fixes:

  • Missing Stack Bibliography information when copy/pasting into a Paper. (Was already present for Drag and Drop, but not the clipboard).
  • New Tab menu where Stack folders of the same level would show up as inside of each other.
  • The first item in a Stack folder in the New Tab menu would always open the current Stack, instead of the Stack at the top of the folder.
  • Missing alphabetization of the Stack subMenus.
  • More reliable and regular automatic backups of Papers.
  • More improved handling of saving large Paper files during certain edit sessions.
  • Where clicking on a Paper wouldn’t remove toolbar search focus.
  • A Unicode encoding error that could occur in Papers with certain foreign language characters.
  • Links in Papers:
    • Unicode encoding errors which could mess up Instant Details and search terms in unicode Texts.
    • Where paper items wouldn't resize after inserting a link.
    • Paper items containing a bibliography link would have all other links improperly point to the bibliography as well.
  • Improved the speed of verse recognition during User Tool import.
  • During User Tool import from a text file where scripture references near the start of a paragraph could go unrecognized.
  • Where converted User Tools could not be saved to “My Toolset”.
  • Some false positives with Auto Linking scriptures: 
    • The words “am be he hi is to gas let man” will no longer be taken for book abbreviations when followed by a space and a number if lowercase. If upper case, or if followed by chapter AND verse, they will be auto linked to the appropriate books.
    • Previously, Auto Linking would allow invalid chapter numbers as long as the chapter had the same number of digits as the max chapter in the book (e.g. Gen 99 would be allowed and would point to Gen 50). This restriction has been tightened and invalid chapters will only work up to 120% of the max chapter. (e.g. Gen 60 will link to Gen 50, but Gen 61 will not be auto-linked at all)
  • Auto Linking a tool where verse references could be ignored if there was a number immediately before them (e.g. “20 Lev 1:1”).
  • Where the scroll bar in an Edit user text tab wouldn’t show up until the first time something was typed.
  • The "Toggle Search" hotkey could set the search field to an invalid value in User Tool tabs.
  • Incorrect User Notes Browser information for notes on certain Tools.
  • Potential searching problems in Old User Notes.

Miscellaneous Fixes

  • Improved error handling when sending Library items to the trash. This could apply when selecting a Stack folder and its subitem, trying to send both to the trash, when the first call to move the folder would also move the file.
  • Missing font style information for certain RTF exports.
  • The location URL could be added when copying from a Text even if the checkbox for that preference was not checked.
  • Where a dagesh at the end of a Hebrew inflected form would be deleted, as it was mistakenly considered as punctuation.
  • Case when starting Speech would exit reading mode.
  • When copying as a Citation, if the “omit entire reference” option was turned on then the space inserted between verses would take on the formatting of the omitted verse reference.
  • Spaces would not be inserted between verses when using Copy as Citation. This only affected users who had never changed their Citation preferences.
  • The “Get Verses” hotkey would be registered to the System even if the checkbox in export preferences was turned off. This could lead to undesired conflicts with other applications.
  • Where a Dropbox sync on quit would not actually sync if the startup mode was set to something other than last session.
  • Where the slide show controls:
    • would fade out even when you were holding your mouse over them.
    • would always reset to the bottom left corner, instead of remembering where they were last placed.
  • Printing issues when skipping Text tabular pages, where the offset wasn’t being updated properly.
  • Construct crash when deleting a clause that contains an Inter.
  • Crash when attempting to delete a picture from a User Tool.
  • Crash if loading a User Notes tab with multiple articles in an uninstalled Tool
  • Crash that could occur in Diagram tabs.
  • Possible crash when syncing Bookmarks via Dropbox.

Version 13.0.4 (Jan. 25, 2020)

  • Intertext issue preventing NOT search logic from working correctly.
  • Where the top pane in a Text Browser could cross highlight or show Instant Details for text that is scrolled up out of view.
  • Improved handling of saving large Paper files during certain edit sessions.
  • Case when exporting a Paper as RTF that would miss the list header markers.
  • Issue when loading a Paper would break Auto Saved sessions.
  • Improved Interlinear to more reliably add space for variant Interlinear columns. These variants end up having multiple columns for one word, so not enough extra space was being added.
  • Where the text in a search was not properly being bolded.
  • Where showing a transliteration text in Instant Details wouldn’t use the correct font, slightly corrupting the characters.
  • Case when unicode Arabic word would be missing from search results.
  • Now the Word List dialog will size correctly for its font - especially needed in something like unicode Arabic.
  • When typing English characters in the Word List dialog didn’t get converted to unicode correctly when needed, such as unicode Arabic.
  • Case when the last character of an entry is a bracket in Hebrew, the cursor would always jump to the end. Removing that jump doesn’t seem to have any adverse effects.
  • Where the right-click Add to Reference List would assume the source was biblical.
  • When the Reference List description could not be colored,.
  • When changing corpuses of a Reference List, if the user declined the change, the old value would not be restored.
  • Where scripture hyperlinks in the User Note for a Tool would not reliably work.
  • Issue that was causing Easy Install titles to not render correctly in some cases where the title was too long.
  • Improved installation of syntax, diagram, and ainter files in Easy Install.
  • Corrected many instances where Accordance wasn’t supporting all GK texts, but only ones containing ‘NIV’. This would leave off Mounce and Leonberger.
  • Minor issues during a first time setup.
  • A hang when trying to load MTLXX data for an Intertext search.
  • A hang/crash when using Copy as Interlinear with a Hebrew passage containing variant codes. In Hebrew, the variant codes just need to be ignored, but no jumping is necessary.
  • Crash if attempting a Copy as Interlinear for too large of a section.
  • Crash that could occur when attempting to auto link scripture references in the User Note for a Tool.
  • Crashes when trying to change the style of the Reference List description text.
  • Crash that could occur after a user was shown a warning about how many Accordance installs they had validated.
  • Possible crash when clicking on a close button.

Version 13.0.3 (Jan. 8, 2020)

Fixes for New Version 13 Features

  • Live Click wasn’t blocked during a Tutorial action of selection or triple click.
  • Improved support for Tutorial menu actions in a localized interface.
  • Where an Intertext search of Hebrew within a Greek text would always default the Hebrew to ‘Literal’
  • Intertext issue with negative searches that didn’t handle the Intertext reference list correctly.
  • Case when an Intertext search would turn off an error dialog, if there is a failure.
  • Various issues affecting the ability to highlight in the Text Browser tab.
  • The Pen Highlight feature now works properly on Reference Tool panes in the Search tab.
  • Where applying a pen highlight didn't turn on the word level highlighting display choice.
  • Where a verse number was 'corrected' twice when toggling a Bookmark in a secondary pane, leading to the wrong verse number.
  • Issue that prevented highlighting within Tool tables.
  • Improved Amplify to Construct when the selection contains two consecutive tags at the bottom of its hierarchy that are not compound forms, such as in the selection הָיְתָה תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ in Gen 1:2 in the HMT-W4 module.
  • Significant improvements to Paper RTF and DocX export:
    • Improved the footnote syntax to not have extra/incorrect braces, which seemed to throw off MS Word.
    • Improved endnote processing for certain cases.
    • Added support for exporting text based endnotes, which do not have a set of source characters.
  • Dark mode fixes:
    • Dark Mode support for the Parallel tab.
    • Issue when getting the theme of an original language text.
    • Display of the Web Browser Close X on dark mode.
    • Corrected color of Construct when NOT in dark mode.
    • Correctly tinted the Mobile Sync Tool Category icons.
    • Blocked the iOS App icon in the Sync dialog from tinting.

Easy Install Fixes

  • Items deleted from the library while Easy Install was open would not show up as available for download after the Refresh option was selected.
