Can't default to "Photoguide 3" from Atlas Maps
Posted 08 July 2008 - 07:20 PM
clicking on any covered names on the Version 2 Atlas 2D map always brings up the Place Names box instead
which is annoying because it seems that Photoguide 3 has the same information but also pictures.
When I click on the Place Names label and scroll down to change to Photoguide 3 using the software
interface and then click on Photoguide 3 the gray overhead area of the window now displays Photoguide 2
while the label in the upper left corner of the window (the one you click on to change to other tools) indicates
Photoguide 3. Is this a recognized bug? Any workarounds so I don't have to choose Photoguide 3 each
time I click on a place name on the map?
Thanks for your help.

I guess the main problem I'm having is that I'd like to be able to use the preferences to cause double clicking on say the word "Memphis"
on the Bible Maps to bring up the entry in Photoguide 3 instead of the entry in "Place Names". Setting the preferences to Photoguide 3
doesn't help- every name I click on still comes up in a Place Names box instead of a Photoguide 3 box, and then I have to individually
change to the Photoguide 3 entry each time.
Is there some way to fix this problem?

In the meantime, a question or two…
Do you have more than one copy of PhotoGuide installed? If so, remove the old one (delete from Browser, and Accordance folder). Set map display again, and if necessary restart Accordance (although the change should take affect without doing so).
When you said, "the gray overhead area of the window now displays Photoguide 2…" did you have more than one PhotoGuide open? If you do, the additional tabs will naturally say PhotoGuide, PhotoGuide 2, PhotoGuide 3, etc. representing the number of tabs open with the same name (that is, if you continue to amplify to PhotoGuide and don't have recycle contents enabled).
If neither of these is the cause of your issue, attach a screen grab and we'll go from there.

Sorry about that, but that is the reality: you must reset the defaults but you must also reset the display of any windows/workspaces/sessions that you have, including your startup session, if you want the new settings to apply to them.

I used the Set Map Display to choose Photoguide 3 and that worked. I had thought that the main Accordance preferences setting that I was trying to use was the correct way but obviously it was not. "If all else fails, read the instructions"
Everything working fine now.
