I usually use my iPhone Accordance in portrait mode as I tend to hold off my more elaborate studies until I'm on my Mac. But today, I wanted to compare translations of certain passages and, in particular, the English word choice selected in the various translations for a question that had arisen. So I opened Accordance on my iPhone (3Gs), did a go to for the first passage, changed to landscape by rotating my phone, split the screen, and choose the other translation for my first comparison. Worked beautifully. I then wanted to go to a different verse. So I selected the arrow point into a page icon to bring up the go to dialog. I selected my reference and then noticed that the go to button and cancel button were not visible. Apparently the way the go to dialog is drawn in landscape did not include either of the buttons at the top.

The work around wasn't difficult just annoying. I rotated my phone back to portrait, selected the button I wanted, and rotated again to landscape. The problem with the buttons to go to or cancel missing is true even if the screen is not split but has a single text version. I have not tried it with other works other than texts. There was one case which I cannot reproduce in which the buttons did appear. I think it was when I chose the version ESVi for the first text. But other tests doing that failed to show the buttons. At least I have a work around and flipping it back and forth doesn't cause any problems so the workaround really works.

As an extra question, having split the screen and showing two versions of the text side by side, is there any way to change the right hand text choice without sliding the dividing bar to close the right side and then split again?

I also notice that if I use the button to select a new text version while in this split mode, the parallel texts are closed and a single version is shown. Is this the designed operation? I guess I'm too used to being able to change which text is displayed in any pane or window independant on what else is display as I can on the Mac.

Thanks,

Bruce

This is a bug. Unfortunately, a difficult bug to track down because I can't reliably reproduce it. It only happens for me sporadically.

You can change the contents of the secondary pane by tapping on the plus icon in the bottom toolbar again and choosing a different module to display in parallel. Sorry that this was not obvious to you.

Scott.
