I don't use QS alot in Accordance, cause normally all I do is read the bible in Accordance. When I'm working on a project that is doing alot more interaction, I tend to script it out.
Joe, this would be a good time to ask you. Do you use QS for within Accordance for anything else? (perhaps you could start another thread on it if it is a long list)
I'm impressed with the amount of keyboard shortcuts Accordance puts in, and knowing how to use proxies with QS is great too.
There are two things in particular I would like to do without the keyboard that I can't (I don't think anyway). If I had my NRSV open in a tab and would like to open my Josephus module, I'd like to do it with some sort of keystroke or via QS somehow. As far as I know, this isn't doable. Neither is adding a particular text pane to the front window (or user notes or reference tools). Can this be done?
Basically I would like to be able to gain access to stuff on the resource palette with keystrokes or QS.
I would resonate with your comment about the resource palette. It used to be an Apple Human Interface standard to have nothing in a toolbar that wasn't available in a menu. While we can select submenu titles directly to amplify or open new window using the Resource palette, from the menu bar we only have the option to Amplify. There is no comparable "New" menu with all those submenu options. Hence, can't create direct triggers for then. This is also the case for panes... there's no menu for a new pane.
Let me tell you about one QS feature however that very handy in apps with a bunch of menu items. If you enable the plug-in "User Interface", then you can use the QS proxy "Current Application" - "Show menu items" which brings up a QS popup with EVERY menu item in the entire application. I have this set to the Trigger Control Option M... so, in order to bring up a General Tool, all I do is:
1. Control Option M
If the tool I want is a few from the top listing, just use:
Control Down Arrow
The QS proxy "Current Application" - "Show menu items" is VERY useful.
