In the Beginning Was the Word

January 16, 2014 - David Lang — This week, I've been encouraging you to explore the various options in the Search menu and its corresponding contextual menu. Today I want to look at the most obvious place to start when constructing a search: with selecting the words you want to find. Most of the time, of course, you're simply going to type the words you have in mind, but sometimes it is helpful to select from a list of all the words in a text. At those times, you'll want to choose the Enter Words… menu item. When you do, a dialog will open with a list of every word ...

It's In There Too! (The Contextual Menu, That Is!)

January 15, 2014 - David Lang — In Monday's post, I explained how everything you need to fill in a blank search entry field is clearly listed and readily available in the Search menu.

It's In There! (The Search Menu, That Is!)

January 13, 2014 - David Lang — Some time ago, the television ads for a brand of spaghetti sauce used the tag line, "It's in There!" The ads would typically revolve around an Italian father or mother chastising someone for cooking spaghetti sauce from a jar, and they would begin listing the ingredients of a true homemade sauce. Each ingredient would then be answered with something like, "Look, Pop, it's in there!" When it comes to Accordance, the "It's in There!" slogan could easily be applied to the Search menu at the top of the screen. Everything you need to fill in ...
