This could just be user ignorance!
I didn't have my instant details window open because I want to conserve screen space. I hovered over note "10" in Acts 5:5 in the NET bible and was trying to get a pop up window to appear. I held down CMD key while clicking on the "10" and it opened a research tab in another zone and gave me the spinning wheel. That was five minutes ago, and Accordance is still unusable. The Research windows says "Searching %@". Clicking the "stop" button doesn't work.
Had to force quit.
