When I search BDB I receive the results as part of the entire book. I know I can press Ctrl+ each time to get the article view, but how do I ask Accordance to automatically show just the relevant articles? I have seen another computer where Accordance does this automatically, however in my Accordance I don't know how to make that happen.


Thank you!

I believe that this is still hard wired into each tool, decided by the developers based on the characteristics of the tool. For example, in some tools the one Entry may have more than one "article" so they prefer to display the entire text so you do not miss any of the entry.

Thank you for your reply. I am not sure it is related to the tool, since I used the same Complete BDB (among other tools) on a library computer (Accordance 10, Windows), and the results there were shown by default as Articles.

The reason I prefer Article display is because sometimes the different results are not in the same place in the Lexicon, making it difficult to jump between them.

You can also use the 'Mk' arrows to jump between hits/articles.
