When I click on "Map" from the resource palette, I get an error message:

An attempt to read or save data beyond the end of the file "Colors" has failed.

I click on OK and I get nothing.

This is in spite of having selected satellite as my preferred background.

If I click and hold then select anything other than "Colors" it works properly.

It seems that the file "Colors" has somehow become corrupted, but as it is (I assume) a read-only file it is hard to imagine how this could have happened.

Still, I would rather have a one-click map button, with "Colors".

I think it is more likely that one of the settings files in your user/Library/Preferences/Accordance Preferences got corrupted. I suspect General but it could be Maps. Try removing one temporarily to see what happens.

I fixed it by replacing "Colors" with the original file from the installer CD, which I think supports my theory about the file becoming corrupted, rather than the preferences.

I used to get the same "An attempt to read or save data beyond the end of the file…" errors while experimenting with User Tools some while back, which usually resulted in me deleting the file and starting over from scratch. At the time I was frequently adding text to the UT and/or editing it and repeatedly re-saving it.

But I'm confident this is the first time that one of the Accordance-supplied files has had this problem.

God bless!
