Accordance is Hanging
Posted 02 February 2011 - 04:54 PM
I have a workspace that "originally" had two zones.
I opened a new Search window, which opened in a third zone
I moved it to become a tab in one of the original zones
I set the range, and ran a search. That worked fine
Then I pressed the details button. Suddenly, my workspace window became this very small rectangle in the middle of my screen, I got the spinning beach ball, and I had to force quit.
I tried again; same results.
Then I tried a different variation. Starting with the original workspace, I opened a new Search window in a third zone.
I set the search up and ran it in that third zone
Then I moved that search to one of the original two zones
I never got to click on the details button; as soon as the search "tab" joined the second one, the workspace shrank again, spinning beach ball, and then Accordance suddenly quit.
Any ideas? I'm happy to screen share to sort it out. I'll try to add a couple screen shots shortly, but I need to play taxi driver for one of my kids at the moment, so I can't do it right this minute.

I requested a new text window, which opened in one of my existing zones this time.
I detached this tab
I got an error message that blinked briefly, then the tab.
When I switched windows (command-~) to look for this message, and came back to the newly-detached window, I had a error message that "a word or expression must be entered at the insertion point." The window is grayed out, and there's no way to click the "OK" button.
There is also no way to enter anything in the search box to correct the error.
Nor can I click on the red circle to close the window.
I would really appreciate a response here.

Yesterday late, I set-up a Lectionary workspace like Lorinda's.
Some of my tools in each section are different than hers, however, the basic layout I found very useful/helpful for preparing Sunday sermons/studies.
Problem came fairly quickly, memory seems to be being "used and held", it wasn't long before I no longer had enough to "write" other pages, such as word processor, safari or anything else, computer generally "slowed to a crawl".
As I closed Safari and Pages from the launch bar ( right click-close app ) , not much change, however, minimizing an Accordance Workspace back to launch bar did help.
1. Are we having a memory release issue in Accordance 9 ?
2. Could this be related to the use of the RCL Lectionary from User Tools?
I am going to try it again this afternoon, with and without the Lectionary user tool.
Lorinda, wondering if behavior is the same for you without the RCL Tool loaded?
Hope This is useful.

It doesn't generally seem to be a memory issue for me, except for the hanging that was happening after a specific series of events, that I laid out in my first post. Today, however, I can't reproduce that part.
The problem I mentioned today about detached tabs is still happening.

I am setting up to do the same now, I am wondering if both issues are related to hyper-links or something in RCL "user tools".
I think "user-tools" is getting some attention in an update that is in the pipeline.
Will let you know what I find out.

This time I didn't move any zones around. I ran the search in the third zone, and clicked on the details button, and that's when the window shrank and it began to hang.

-Open a New workspace
-Set the Search text to BHS-W4
-Set the "search for" button to words
-Enter [Count 1] and run the search
-Click on the Details button
Every time I do this, the workspace becomes a small rectangle in the center of the screen, and Accordance hangs.
If I have another workspace open, it remains the correct size. But it happens whether another workspace is open or not.
