I'm very excited to say that the seminary I teach at (lbs.edu) has just signed an Accordance Purchase Agreement to get each of our students their own license of Accordance! In light of this, I wanted to turn my lecture notes into a USER TOOL for my students so they could incorporate into their Accordance program and utilize Accordance search feature for my lecture notes.
I am a 10-year veteran of Accordance, but this is the first time I've done this. I was able to import my notes into Accordance by saving them as an HTM file. The import went fine, but my formatting is all awry. Even though I used Word's "styles" feature (to create automatic outline levels in the file), I lost all the indentations in my User Tool. Accordance also did other weird things such as make some bold words into an outline format (where the letters themselves are like block letters, outlined). As I suspected, Accordance also didn't know what to do with inserted pictures or tables.
Altogether, I'm not too happy with how this User Tool is going to work for my students. The hardcopy or electronic (.doc or .pdf) notes are going to be MUCH easier to follow.
Can anyone assist me with the formatting issues I'm running into? Should I save my notes in a format other than .htm? I want to preserve the Biblical hypertext links. Can other formats do this, too?
Thanks for commenting!
