Part of Accordance's appeal is how well it fits in with the rest of the Mac/Apple interface. (Hence double-click to highlight text, triple-click to look things up.)

What about ⌘+F for a searching shortcut in a given text or tool?

I see this much is available, via the help files on shortcuts:

 

apple_cmnd.gifF

  • If a Map or Timeline tab is active, opens the Find dialog box

  • If an Edit window is active, opens the Find/Replace dialog box

  • If in the Index pane of this Help, finds the specific Index term

  • If in the Topic pane of this Help, finds the search string in the topic

–Opt–apple_cmnd.gif F

Search for the selection in a duplicate of the active Search or Tool tab

 

That –Opt–apple_cmnd.gif F shortcut is pretty nifty, by the way.

 

But a drop-down menu (as Safari offers) where one could enter text would be great--or is are there things already in place like this that I'm missing? Or perhaps reasons it wouldn't be feasible?

Thanks, Joel.  Looking forward to it.

 

I just found out recently about the –Opt–apple_cmnd.gif F shortcut ("Search for the selection in a duplicate of the active Search or Tool tab"). Glad to know about that!

Agreed.

 

This would be similar, I suppose, to opening the Library window (in Acc 10) and doing Command+F to search for the resource you want.

Battlesman--I had forgotten about that. Now that I have a bunch of IVP resources and other things to wade through, that's a nice way to quickly access things in the Library.
