When using Accordance I am used to triple clicking on a Hebrew or Greek word and having a lexicon pop up at the right in a new window with the existing windows still visible.  Now trying to use the Windows version, when the lexicon pops up it fills the whole screen and the text I was working on disappears with no immediately apparent way to get it back except searching from scratch.  I can't find anything in preferences to solve this problem.  How can I get the program to behave in Windows?

In the Preferences, go to Workspaces.  What is the "default maxium zones" number?  If it is 1, try increasing the number.  If that doesn't fix things, can you post a screen shot?  I'm wondering if the lexicon is showing up in a whole new workspace, or in a new tab in the same zone as the text you are working with.  In my tests, if I triple click on a Greek word, the lexicon opens in a zone to the right of my text.  This is on a Windows Vista Home Premium setup.

Running Accordance on:
Mac 10.11 (El Capitan)
iOS 9 (iPad & iPhone)
Windows 10

[Vista Home Premium before 3/20/2016]
