Since installing 9 last week the program has become unresponsive numerous times. Even though I've updated to 9.0.3 the same thing has happened twice today. The same action caused the freeze both times today: displaying search results for a word (BHS-W4 with English version and LXX as parallel panes) and details pane open on the right (showing table of hits per book). When I click the scroll down arrow in this Table window Accordance becomes unresponsive. The program is still running: Force Quit… in the Apple menu does not show it as being unresponsive. Furthermore, Activity Monitor shows that Accordance is consuming 95-100% CPU; my MBP is running hot and the fan has kicked on. I just tried this same scenario again immediately after launching Accordance afresh, and the same problem happened - i.e. this problem is replicable. I have to Force Quit to quit the program.

Accordance has frozen on me so many times this past week that working in it is frustrating.

I can replicate this behavior as well.

By the way, thanks for posting this issue... much of the underlying code in Accordance has been written from the ground up for version 9 and these sort of bugs are difficult to track down. Once they're brought to the programmers' attention, they are being dealt with quickly.

I also am experiencing the same thing however the freeze I experience is when I make a personal note and then attempt to highlight text with the cursor. (I have already noted this in the thread entitled "Force Quit". It does not do this all the time but today it happened about four times. I would like to think that this behavior will be addressed by the 9.0.4 release.

We've found and fixed for 9.0.4 all of the bugs mentioned in this thread. There was a hang when scrolling the Table, that has now been fixed. Apparently either we missed an earlier report or none of our testers use the table!

Also, Bob, we thought we had fixed the highlight freeze in 9.0.3, but we got an excellent reproducible case for it in 9.0.3 from one of our users. Using that, we were able to find another problem and fix it, and none of us have been able to get it to freeze. Once 9.0.4 comes out, please let us know if it is still freezing, but we believe we finally got it all.

Joel, that is great news! I absolutely love Accordance and Accordance 9 is awesome but the freezing thing did get a little annoying. Thanks for the hard work and thanks for the reply. God bless all of you at Oak Tree Software!

Thanks for your prompt attention. Exciting to hear that much of the code has been rewritten from the ground up, presumably in such a way that will enable Accordance to remain on the cutting edge for many years to come. I use the Table and Analysis windows all the time. It's great now having them appear alongside the text rather than in a separate window. Lots to like about Accordance 9.
