This is such a simple matter, that I almost hate to ask it; but I spent enough time poking around & trying the help files -- to no avail.


For some reason, my program has started opening parallel texts below the first text, instead of to the right, side-by-side as it always used to do.  Now I find myself having to drag the text up every time.    


How to I get Accordance to behave on adding parallel texts?

There is a small small icon (two small rectangles with alternate arrows) beside the Add Parallel ( below the search entry box ) - just click that.  


You may want to save a default session. Prefs/General (Though I'm not absolutely sure if that saves the actual layout of the window)

Hi Enoch,


Texts default to the side

Tools default to below


So just to be clear is it a text or a tool (e.g. commentary) that you are opening in parallel?


If I have the ESV open and then open the NRSV in parallel it opens to the right of the ESV.

I think that while everything had been opening to the  side in parallel, then somehow my program got the below-disease (my POV).  But now it has gone back to opening things at the side.  I am not sure how it happened or how it got cured.

You can always hold the option key to try and open things to the side.  However, if there isn't room to open one to the side, it will open below.  Likely you had a pane open that was too small to be shrunk any for the new pane.
