User Tool Editing
Posted 13 March 2006 - 10:22 AM
The formatting changes have been simple, like bold, italics, etc. Could my module be corrupt?

Could it be that you simply cannot see them because of the increasing length of the tool? Try to go to "Preferences" - "Edit Windows" - and set the User Tool Window Edit to "Large (fewer updates"
If that is the case, the performance will really slow down, however. I'm hoping that will be something that is addressed in the next version.

Changing the Block size only affects how much text you can see in the Edit window at one time (as well as the speed of updating). The first point to ascertain is whether text is actually being deleted. Can you see it in the User Tool window at all? Does it come back in the Edit window if you use the arrows?
If the text is deleted, it may be a bug, or the file may be corrupt. If you create a new tool and import the file into it, that should get rid of any corruption. However, if it is a bug, we need you to try and isolate what is triggering it, so we can fix it on the next rev.
This is a good reminder to us all to make back-ups of anything in which we have invested time: user notes and tools, highlight settings (actually all the settings), etc., etc.

Backup, backup, backup. You are so right. Fortunately it's not an enormous amount of material.
In a post from October I mentioned how slow editing of the HTML file of my imported sermons was and I abandoned the HTML for text. Maybe I will give the HTML another try since I have noticed a speed increase in more recent Accordance revisions.
