Is it possible? Assuming it is, where do you start?

 

Thanks!

It is possible, but for me it needs much more improvements. That I hope will come in 11.1 or 11.2. Thats why in my signature stand "waiting on 11.1" Also I wait for improvements on User Bibles.

 

A good way is to look at my posts, I have done a lot about User resources.

 

I hope also that it will come User Lexicons and ePub import, what a competitor has done.

 

Best you start with a Word processor, make headings and give the Bible-verses the abbreviation that Accordance need. See import User Bible in the Help file. Unfortunately european notation is not working at the moment.

 

Then save it as .html and import it as User Tool. This is all written in the Help files.

 

So now what is not written in the Help files 11.0.5:

Word11: Accordance has problems if you are using bold characters. I had made a post about this. bold normal character bug. All Browser didn't have problems only Accordance.

Word preview 15: Accordance crash the import of the html's that are created in this version.

 

OpenOffice and LibreOffice:

Accordance don't recognize the bullets that are made in OO and LO. But the ones from Word11.

 

Word and OO/LO and similar Office:

Links and cross-references, (Footnotes, Endnotes as links etc.) in the same file are not supported till now. Only Links to an extern file or URL.

 

Tables and Pics are not supported.

 

Use only western Mac or greek and hebrew. Unicode is not supported now.

 

Tie and Untie User Tools are not possible today.

 

That was the most urgent, there are more but you'll find out.

 

Conclusion for me:

I wait till improvements are coming. I had done a lot of different test, and I'm not satisfied with the possibilities today. May I create files till then, but I've had ask how to format the files for the future possibilities and I got no answer.

 

Greetings

Accordance has the ability for creating your own tools. There are User Notes, User Tools and User Bibles. In the Help look under "Digging Deeper > Creating Your Own Modules" One of the differences between user notes and tools is that the notes can be shown in Accordance in parallel with a Bible text.

I am having trouble importing a user tool.... I made a PB in Logos...  I tried saving the docx file to html  and import it, it fails... I tried saving it to txt again it doesn't import. When I attempt to paste it in small sections at a time it fails to paste fully.

 

For example:

The Contributors

 

  Rebecca T. Alpert is Chair of the Department of Religion and Associate Professor of Religion and Women’s Studies at Temple University. She is the co-author of Exploring Judaism: A Reconstructionist Approach, with Jacob Staub; author of Like Bread on the Seder Plate: Jewish Lesbians and the Transformation of Tradition; editor of Voices of the Religious Left: A Contemporary Sourcebook and co-editor of Lesbian Rabbis: The First Generation with Sue Elwell and Shirley Idelson. She is currently at work on a volume about Jews, race and sports. She teaches religion and sexuality, the politics of race and gender, and religion in American public life. 

  Marcella Althaus-Reid is Reader in Christian Ethics, Practical Theology, and Systematic Theology at the University of Edinburgh Divinity School, Scotland. She is a Latin American theologian and author of Indecent Theology: Theological Per/versions in Sex, Gender and Politics, The Queer God and From Feminist Theology to Indecent Theology. She writes, ‘I call my style of doing theology Indecent because it denounces the status quo and the complacency with power that theologies had in the past, while claiming to be proper or decent. Meanwhile, they ignored that the only decency in theology comes from honesty and a pursuit of justice in all orders of life. If we call theologies in alliance with systems of exploitation decent, then I want to be an indecent theologian.’

 

Pasting that it ends "Edinburgh Divinity School, Scotland." 

 

And after that it allows me to past a few words only at a time.

 

This is a work for personal use since it is a copywrited work, I wish to access in Accordance. What I can not figure what the issue is. It is frustrating, I admit I have only made a few other UserTools but never had issues before.
