User Tool Browser
Posted 09 November 2007 - 11:00 AM
After I close my User Tools with a outline for the browser saved, I am unable to edit the outline again. I click the red "T" to unselect a line from the outline, but nothing happens, even when I update, no changes have taken place. The only way to get rid of the red "T" is to delete the entire line and retype it. Should I wait to do the outline, or is their a better workaround?

This may be a wild goose chase, but something to check while you wait for Helen's response. Bore down through the following folders:
HOME/Documents/Accordance Files/User Tools where HOME is your user name/home folder.
Are there any files there that begin with ...? If so, are any of the file names completely or almost completely made up of dots? If so, drag all those files beginning with .. to the trash, and try editing your file again.
Those ... files are left over from the updating user tool process. Accordance is supposed to trash them after processing the update, but sometimes that doesn't happen. I've experienced problems editing user tools when the ... files become too numerous.
Then again, you may be experiencing something completely different.
Running Accordance on:
Mac 10.9 (Mavericks)
iOS 7 (iPad)
Windows Vista Home Premium

Remember also that your block length can be set in the Preferences. Bigger blocks need less frequent updates but they take longer.

I was halfway done with my reply to give you more specifics on what I was exactly doing, and it started working again. I know I am unable to move that initial "T" so I just put my Title in white font, so it gets everything that I want and I am able to retain my format. And all of the folder seem to be fine at this point. Anyway, Thanks.

Everything works fine for a while. Then after I quit Accordance and restart it, I am unable to edit the red "T". If I take it and move it to another folder then move it back, I am able to edit them again??? I did check the folders and nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. Thanks for any suggestions.

Please answer these questions to help us track this down:
1. Is your 'Accordance Folder' (the folder with the application and modules) on your boot partition?
3. Are the user tools/notes you are having problems with located on the boot partition in /Users/(you)/Documents/Accordance Files/ ?
2. Are you logged in as an 'Administrator' ?

Also, I am running OS X 10.4.10, I know that shouldn't mean anything, but it might help.
The new problem. This also should be on a new thread, I think?
When I open Accordance and select "Greek for the Rest of Us" module, then open to edit it, I am missing a lot of information, mainly all the titles that I have entered without text under them. They are not yet in the Browser Outline. After I update and go back to the main Accordance window, all the text is there, but it is still not in the edit window. There does seem to be space where the text could be, but I highlighted it all and change the font color to black, and nothing shows up. I was able to successfully copy everything from the main menu and paste it into Pages, so I have not lost anything. Do you think it would be best to just delete the User Tool and start over to see if it occurs again? Just let me know.
Thanks for all your help.
UPDATE: There is not extra space where the text could be, but it still shows up in the Module, not the edit window???

What font is the text in? Have you tried selecting it all and resetting the font itself?
Yes. I tried changing it all the Helena, then back to Helvetica. So it is Helvetica I am using.

The actual file that Accordance uses is in your user/Library/Accordance files/User Tools. Are you deleting that file? And are you deleting the file in Accordance folder/Modules/Shared User Tools? If you are not going to both locations I suspect that you are not starting with a completely clean slate. Deleting the file from the pop-up menus does not affect the actual files on the hard drive at all.
