I don't know if this is Windows specific, as I'm not at my Mac at the moment.  I would guess, however, that this is an internal formatting issue with the module.

 

In Eerdman's Dictionary, I cannot amplify from a Title.   For example:

 

Search Eerdman's for Colossae

Click in the word Colossae in the title for the article

from the Atlas toolbar item, choose an atlas "format" (e.g. Colors).  An error box appears that explains that in order to amplify to the Atlas, the word cannot be in Greek or Hebrew.  (Which it is not)

 

Dismiss this box and return to Colossae in the title.  This time try to amplify to another resource (for example, the Bible Lands Photo Guide)  This time, an error box will appear, telling you that the word does not occur in the Photo Guide,  even though it does.

 

This does not happen when amplifying from the word Colossae in the text of the article.  Nor does it happen when amplifying from words in the titles of articles of other modules (for example the Bible Lands Photo Guide or Holman Dictionary). 

 

This occurs with more than just Colossae, but at least one Title (Caligula) does amplify correctly.

 

I will gladly report a correction if that is the way to go.

The issue appears in the Mac version of Accordance, too, although there I can't get Caligula to amplify, either.

I can confirm this. My guess would be it's an issue with the Eerdman's Dictionary module.

 

Thank you for pointing this out Lorinda!

I checked on this, and actually found a quick fix for it. An update for the module will be released to correct it.

Wow! That was fast. Thanks. I look forward to the update. In the meantime, it's easy enough to work around.
