Grrrr....I have spent hours now trying to create two workspaces, one for textual comparison and another for Greek/English study. I'm writing this to help others.
I'm using Accordance 12 on a Win10 system. Either the Help files need to be updated, or there are technical issues. (Or perhaps I'm not reading the Help correctly, but I think I am.)
Following the Help file instructions, I created the layout I wanted.
- If I try to use the +- button at the bottom of the Library pane, it only allows me to Add Favorite Workspace: existing workspace name. I.e., there is no way to create a new workspace, so all it does is overwrite the existing one, and so all my work is lost.
- If (following the Help file) I try to use the menu and use Window > Add to Favorites, again there is no option to rename a new workspace, and it just overwrites what the workspace is already named.
- If (following the Help file) I try to use the menu and use Amplify > My Workspaces, that option is grayed out and not available.
HERE IS WHAT YOU MUST DO:
The only solution I can find is to create the workspace I want, then use File > Save As and be sure to use a new name for the file (the default just uses the existing one) and create a new xxxx.accord file.
THEN, and only then can I use 1 or 2 above to add these to My Workspaces.
I have had numerous instances where trying to then open the new workspace causes Accordance to crash, but I am unable to replicate consistently when it does or does not crash.
