Even after going through numerous video tutorials and FAQs I'm finding Accordance reasonably difficult to navigate. I'm sure it will get better as I become more familiar with it. Can anyone point me to the settings for the default commentary, dictionary, etc?

The first tool listed in each category in the Library window (English Tools, Greek Tools, Hebrew Tools, Reference Tools, General Tools) is the default tool invoked by operations like triple-clicking a reference or a word.

As for the global defaults for the appearance of tools, go to the Preferences > Tool Display.

Default bibles are set in the program preferences, but default dictionaries and commentaries are set by dragging them to the top of their respective sections in the Library window.

Wow! after trying to find the answer on youtube and looking over preference settings a few times I would never have guessed it was that easy.

 

Thanks

Also, in version 11, there is a new Amplify preferences pane that takes place of the old assumptions.  Simply choose your default tools using this preference pane.
