I installed the new services posted on July 2. On trying them out my text editor froze. I went on to try and open the services in Automator and got the message that the action could not be loaded because it wasn't found. I am running the latest accordance and osx packages.

 

Maybe these services don't work on a system with German as the system language?

 

In the meantime the problem was solved by a restart - I can now open the services in Automator and tweak them to my delight and use them in my word processor.

The new services are great and wonderfully implemented with 10.4.3. Thank you!

 

I have found an issue with the older Keynote 9 (version 5.3). When selecting a text and attempting to invoke Services it will not complete. You have to press Command-Period to halt. It works fine in the newer Keynote (version 6.2).  I would venture to say many have stayed with Keynote 9, simply due to the newer Keynote lacking all the features of the previous version. I am glad I kept my older Services scripts so I can continue to use these until the newer Keynote gets feature parity with the older Keynote.

 

I have tested the new Services with the older Pages (4.3) and they work perfectly. 

 

Just as a matter of preference, I liked the older "Insert Query ..." which I had modified to work with the NKJV. Perhaps that could be added later with the ability to choose the module as in the newer "Acc - Insert Verses From Any Text"

 

I am extremely thankful that Accordance has chosen to include these with the 10.4.3 install making implementation more seamless.

Tony,

FYI, I just added a new tutorial for how one would duplicate the older "Insert Query…" function using the new Accordance Actions.

Thanks for the new services Accordance!  These are really great.

 

And thank you, Joe for that post.  I am going to try that out.

 

 

Update:

 

Joe, I followed the instructions you have on your blog and everything worked like a charm.  Thanks for the easy and informative instructions.  

 

Instead of creating separate workflows for each translation text would it be possible to add a menu to the dialog box with options in it?
