When hovering Apocryphal links in the BDAG, nothing shows up in the Instant Details box. When clicking the links, the NIV/GK always opens, even after changing the default and alternate texts for hypertexts in the Tool Display preferences. Is this a bug? Or is this by design?

Last night after making these changes and closing and restarting Accordance, it still did not work. This morning after making this post, it started working...go figure?

I think you simply ran into the old issue, that changing default preferences does not change any currently open windows (we plan to give you that option in a future rev), nor any saved windows or workspaces including the Startup session. Defaults apply to new windows, but can be brought into play for an existing or saved window by changing the text or tool and then changing back to the desired one (and resaving), or of course by using Set Text Display for the window

For those who don't quite get what you were trying to do, the Tool Display lets you set a Text which applies to Scripture references in the tool (whether viewed in Instant Details or clicked), and an Alternate Text (which can be set to show books which don't exist in your first choice such as the Apocrypha, or GNT-T/LXX1 or BHS-W4/GNT-T).

That makes sense. Thank you.
