Improving on the "Details"
Posted 29 November 2009 - 03:37 PM
This prompted me to think about ways Accordance can improve on the "Details" a little bit. There have been many times (particularly preparing for Greek and Hebrew classes) when I've made significant use of Accordance search results- particularly the "analysis" tab.
I've often had to copy and paste the Accordance info to a text file, then do a bunch of find and replaces to get the info to the point where I can bring it in to Numbers or Excel. Improving the analysis results to be in more of a table style would help this out a bit. Also, the ability to place in a different "column" the root form (rather than in parenthesis), etc.
I don't think full "manipulation" in the way Logos 4 has it is necessary— in my opinion that is the work of a spreadsheet program. But offering the data in such a way that it can be seamlessly brought into Numbers/Excel would be great! (perhaps even a button that automatically opens Numbers with the data in it :=)

The current offset format I think is superbly done, but I also think it should have an option of exporting as a tab delim file. I suspect something like that is coming in due time. Until such time, I have released a droplet application which converts various analysis windows into a tab deliminated file.

I agree that the offset format is well done and generally pleasing to the eyes. On this matter- the details and analysis - I'm more about function than looks :-)
