My most regular use of General Tools is to search them for each week's passage (that I'm preaching on) (1) by Scripture reference and then (2) by English content and/or Title. (Since the tool may have information relevant to me that is best found with one or the other search.)

 

It wasn't until now that I realized that you can do more than just add a second field for an "AND" search, but you can also select "OR" before you select your second field search. I know this has been there all along, but I just now noticed.

 

So now in one search setup (which I can save), I can have a General Tool return hits for every time a tool mentions either Matthew 28 by reference or the Great Commission in the English content... and even throw in another "or" of "Discipleship" in the Titles.

This will be a small but welcome time-saver for me! Passing it on in case others haven't taken advantage of it yet.

Thanks, Tim! Sure thing.

 

So now for the million dollar question--what is the technical term for that spot where you select AND, OR, or NOT? Is it a "token"?

I think the spot is called a button, but the result is a drop down menu.

... which you select from the "Tools Pop-up Menu."

 

Those help files surely have everything about Accordance. I knew they were thorough, but didn't realize they'd even have a name for every jot and tittle (so to speak).

 

Thanks, D!

The doc is, for sure, generally excellent. Sometimes I wish I could find stuff a little more easily but I've not worked out a way to suggest making that easier in any case where I've had problems. Its really hard to search for a GUI artifact directly when you don't know its name ! and I don't know how to fix that. To find this thing I had to look through screen shots of search related stuff until I found one that had an annotated an image of it. But it does have lots of images in it so it is possible.

 

Thx

Welcome.

 

And I've thought of a cool feature for the Help that would assist here - if you could search for images matching a screen shot of a GUI artifact. Of course its majorly non-trivial to set this up and its doubtless not worth it for the Help files until image matching searches become common, but it would be way cool.

 

Thx

Daniel,

 

Another way to help with most graphics is to use the Window > Window Help menu item.

 

So for this case, with the tool tabs in front, I selected Window Help and Accordance navigated to:

 

Digging Deeper > Study Aids: Tools and Parallels > Using Tools > The Tools Tab

 

Which Identified the Search Entry area:

Then I clicked the link for the Search Entry area which took me to the link you attached:

 

Digging Deeper > Study Aids: Tools and Parallels > Using Tools > Search Entry Area: Tools Tab

 

 

Hope this helps,

Mike

I was thinking if this is a valid idea also for the iOS app.

What if I can search on the app for a english word through Entries and a scripture verse (usually an entire book) through the Scripture filter?

Hey Mike,

 

  Nice one - that helps a lot. I didn't know this. No doubt one of the many things I don't know about Acc.

 

Thx

Ditto--thanks, Mike!


Or, at least, chalk it up to one of the many things one can have learned about Accordance but have "forgotten" due to lack of regular use...a good reminder.
