It's Thursday, and this is my first blog post of the week. That's because I've been in Atlanta since Friday to do two free Accordance training seminars. The seminars went well, and we had people who came all the way from Charlotte, North Carolina; Greenville, South Carolina; and Birmingham, Alabama. We also had several representatives of Walk Through the Bible, and one of the attendees happened to be an old friend I haven't seen since he moved from Florida more than a decade ago. All in all, it was a very productive and enjoyable trip.
Of course, all that activity has meant a dearth of tips for you, the readers of this blog. So let me make up for it by pointing you to a helpful resource which was developed for use in the training seminars.
During the last round of seminars, several attendees offered the helpful suggestion that we provide some kind of handout that would help them follow along and refresh their memories about what had been covered in the seminar. A handout also has the advantage of giving them something to do (other than zone out) while I'm answering some obscure question about Greek or Hebrew that may not be of interest to them.
So for this round of seminars we developed a new Quick Reference Guide, which we hope will be of use not only to seminar attendees, but to all Accordance users. This Quick Reference Guide covers the overall interface concepts around which Accordance is built, the organization and use of the Resource palette, tips for working with Workspaces, the layout of the Search window, the use of Search commands and symbols, and more. We've made it available on our web-site as a PDF, and hope you'll find it helpful.
