Squish! Accordance 8.3.1 Squashes Bugs

Just as you're settling into a new Accordance update, here we come with another one. Last week we released Accordance 8.3 with lots of new features, enhancements, and yes, a few minor bugs. As those bugs have been reported, our programmers have been hard at work squashing them. Accordance 8.3.1 is therefore now available for download. Whether or not you've experienced any bugs in 8.3, you'll want to go ahead and download this latest version. And while this latest update is just a bug-fix release, there is one minor enhancement we left out of 8.3: the verse references when you Copy as Citation or Copy as References now use an en-dash rather than a regular dash for ranges (to satisfy the sticklers for typographic accuracy).

You can download 8.3.1 here.

Thanks for the update but it is still acting funny when it comes to recycling windows. For instance when triple clicking on a greek word, accordance will open a new window to search, while also entering the greek word in the recycled window but manually requires me to click enter. Basically it needs to stop opening an additional window and needs to actually perform the search in the window that is set to recycle.

Thanks for the en-dashes! Much nicer than trying to enter them manually! Thanks!

The triple-click will only do what you describe when a different field is being used. It will first try to find the word as an Entry but if that fails it will look in the Content for that language. It will open the second window only if it needs a different field. If it finds both words as entries, I do not think a second woindow will open (if you leave the recycling on).

Thanks for the the update. It fixed one problem I was having before I reported it.

As I was watching the files names wizzing by I thought I saw the name "Helen" in one of the last names. Are you sneaking something on my drive? :)

That can only be the Helena font. Did you guess I named it after myself?

Thanks a bunch that makes sense now, that is actually pretty cool. Is there any way to make it search for content in the recycled window rather than opening a new window if it cannot find the lexical entry?

Sorry, there is not.
