That's a helpful section in the User Manual, though perhaps not clear enough in the "Amplify with a Triple-Click" section. Right now the user is told:
- If the word is not found in a search of the first tool, the other tools in the category are searched in turn until the word is found.
It should probably read something like: "Accordance will amplify to the default tool selected in the Amplify preferences. If the word cannot be found in your default tool, Accordance will continue searching down from the location of your default tool to the end of the library category."
Thus, if Webster's Dictionary is your default tool, and if it's 1/2 way down your "Dictionary" category, Accordance will only search from Webster's to the end of the Dictionary category. Any tools in the Dictionary category that appear above Webster's will not be searched.
