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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

You can also rename the workspace in the Window menu and then directly add it to your favorites which also saves it.

Ah, yes! I see how that would work. Thanks.
