When I click on "Map" from the resource palette, I get an error message:

An attempt to read or save data beyond the end of the file "Colors" has failed.

I click on OK and I get nothing.

This is in spite of having selected satellite as my preferred background.

If I click and hold then select anything other than "Colors" it works properly.

It seems that the file "Colors" has somehow become corrupted, but as it is (I assume) a read-only file it is hard to imagine how this could have happened.

Still, I would rather have a one-click map button, with "Colors".

I think it is more likely that one of the settings files in your user/Library/Preferences/Accordance Preferences got corrupted. I suspect General but it could be Maps. Try removing one temporarily to see what happens.

I fixed it by replacing "Colors" with the original file from the installer CD, which I think supports my theory about the file becoming corrupted, rather than the preferences.

I used to get the same "An attempt to read or save data beyond the end of the fileā€¦" errors while experimenting with User Tools some while back, which usually resulted in me deleting the file and starting over from scratch. At the time I was frequently adding text to the UT and/or editing it and repeatedly re-saving it.

But I'm confident this is the first time that one of the Accordance-supplied files has had this problem.

God bless!
