Several users have complained that Accordance window drawing and refreshing was very slow, and getting slower. We learned that this may be due to a corruption in Spotlight's behind-the-scenes files, but we were reluctant to recommend a fix that involved going into the Terminal.
Please give us feedback if you experienced the slowdown, and what helped. Specifically, did 10.4.2 fix it, and should we recommend this upgrade to all Tiger users?

Ooops. I just saw the 6.7 upgrade available on the Accordance site. Thanks!
That did not do it for me. I just had to restart Accordance because it was dragging to the point that it was unusable. And I've got Accordance 6.7 and OS X.4.2. However, I don't know if it's an Accordance issue. I've been having trouble with lots of programs lately. Word spins the beachball indefinitely, Safari crashes frequently (used to never happen), Photoshop Elements stalls on the splash screen. But then, sometimes all of them work fine. It's weird. I'm starting to think that someone switched me to a Windows machine.

One Mac OS utility that I find extremely usefull to keep my system up to speed is Macaroni, from www.atomicbird.com
It simply runs the Unix maintenance subroutines (that normally run between 3-5 AM or so), and wil fix disk permissions, whenever it detects that the computer is idle. They have a 35 day trial available.

After working with 6.7 for awhile I am still getting the slow downs when switching between tabs in a workspace... It seems to be directly related to the amount of information I have displayed in a tab. The more bible versions and notes I have open within a tab, the slower it is to display that tab (an average of 5-10 seconds). Again, turning Quartz off fixes the problem, but Quartz sure does make it easier to read the Greek and Hebrew characters so I find myself turning it on and off frequently.
