Here is a couple of great Scrivener Tutorial: http://www.screencas.../mac/show/0275/  and https://www.youtube....h?v=qpAFXQlkQkc  (this by someone going his PhD in Biblical Studies.

Abram,

 

When go from Accordance to to Scrivener I will do a simple copy-paste or a copy as citation-paste.


In Christ,

Tim Hall

I would love for Accordance to beef up its notes and User Tools. Among other things, formatting, outlining, hyperlinking text, and the ability to link not only Bible verses, but Tool contents would be awesome.  That way instead of having to add a map or image into the notes, we just add a link to the resource. 

 

I love Scrivener, but I much prefer to have all my notes within Accordance if works like a launch pad for the content.

Thanks, Tim. And thanks, David, for the tutorial links--I'll check them out!

 

One reason I'll keep using Accordance for notes is that I can tie them to a specific verse. I don't mind copy-pasting the notes into Scrivener.

Abram, you probably know this, but I just found out that with the new Accordance Services if I select the verse at Scrivener I can either open it in Accordance from Scrivener or actually have Accordance insert the entire verse or verses into Scrivener. Really cool.

Pretty cool. Don't tell the inimitable Joe Weaks this, but I haven't been using Services much lately in my workflow. However, that will probably change soon.

I can even search in Accordance from Logos. I can maximize all my resources that way. Really cool.

I must say, using services to search Accordance from Logos does sound ironic ...

Revtim, I didn't want to imply anything by my comment other than I am enjoying the ability to bridges all the resources I have, both in Logos and Accordance. They are both outstanding research tool with very specific differences. One is only better than the other depending of your focus, study styles and personal preferences. There are things that Accordance is better, easier and faster while there are things that Logos can do that Accordance cannot. I am glad that each company have a clear and distinctive approach to Bible software. It is that difference that makes them both important to the Bible student.

So I am not sure why it should sound ironic at all. I wish I could the same thing from Accordance to Logos.

I have and use both Logos and Accordance. I love both programs and I am blessed by how both allows me to dig into God's Word in different ways. I know that many here own and use both too. That is why I shared what I said.

David,

 

I did not mean to offend if I did. I have not worked with Logos. I simply thought searching in one Bible program from another ironic.

Thanks Tim. No worries. 

 

I do have resources in Accordance and I don't have in Logos (Like the WBC and Pillar Commentaries and Mounce NT) and thought it was cool that Services allows me to bridge resources between both software.

Hey guys, I just figured out that with the new URI capability I can also create a link from within Scrivener to something in Accordance. Scrivener appears to automatically detect that what I've typed is a URI. Just for gags I tried this in Scrivener:

 

accord://search/VULG-T?principium

 

After I hit return Scrivener converted it to a link, and when I clicked on it, Accordance came forward and searched the tagged Vulgate for "principium." :-) This could be veeeery useful… Research notes to commentaries, lecture notes to maps or graphics, etc.

 

Tony

David, 

what service do you use to search Accordance from Logos?

Is that a right click option, a service option, or a system shortcut you have setup?

 

Can you describe that and post a screen shot?

 

thanks,

r

Ross, the right click in logos won't give you the Services option. You need to click on the menu "logos">Services and the choose the one you want to use. The only one that works for me is Search Word.

 

But for reason tthe two searches with options won't work for me, no matter what I am using.

Depending on the progress you've made in your decision on Scrivener, you might want to check out the MacUpdate Bundle at:

 

http://deals.macupdate.com/

 

10 days left to get Scrivener bundled with 9 other Mac apps for 49.99.

I note that it includes Bookends, too. That's a great deal.

 

I thought I'd posted more of my reflections on Scrivener here, but I guess I forgot. I did a brief write-up here on using it for a grad school paper.

 

And I use it every week now for sermon prep. Here's a screenshot of how it's set up now:
