Obviously I wouldn’t expect it to be officially supported, but it’s worth noting for beta testers - my Greek and Hebrew texts are now garbled nonsense as it can’t find/render the font for some reason.

Sometimes you can get away with it and sometimes you really need to wait. This time falls under the latter category.

Thanks for letting us know! I'll have to hold off on the update for a bit.

Another app lets me read original languages, but I can’t look anything up because text selection is grabbing whole paragraphs instead of words. My two bible apps of choice (and three 32 bit apps) have all taken a hit for now.

Thanks for reporting. It is correct that we can't support iOS in beta, but hopefully, it will be a quick fix. 

 

Personally, I can't wait to install iOS 11 on my iPad Pro--I think it's the most significant iOS release for the iPad since the iPad itself was released. I got the email from Apple yesterday about availability of the beta, but I am going to (try to) be disciplined and hold off installing until Accordance Mobile is working. This is especially a must since I teach the Accordance Mobile webinars!

Really looking forward to the new iPad improvements to make it a more capable machine.

Rick, my thoughts exactly. The iOS 11 update for the iPad is exactly what is needed (and probably should have been there from the beginning but I digress...). I'm really looking forward to running it on my iPad Pro, though I will try to hold off until Accordance iOS is supported as well.

Agreed. I strongly believe that Apple has always thought of iOS as the successor to macOS, just as we're already seeing mobile operating systems (iOS, Android) eclipse legacy operating systems (Windows, Mac) in regular use. When the Mac was first released, as groundbreaking as it was, it was not nearly as capable as what could be done at that moment on an Apple II. Over time, though, as the Mac evolved, it was clearly the superior system; and Apple retired the Apple II in 1992, slightly less than a decade after the Mac was introduced. 

 

The current transition is not so easy or quick because there are exponentially more computer users today than there were in the 80s and 90s. iPad sales have even slumped, but for two factors: (1) iPads tend to have a very long life and the average person doesn't replace them often. And (2) in spite of some really amazing apps in iOS, the operating system itself has not been capable of allowed to have some of the basic features computer users are accustomed to such as file management and drag and drop. iOS 11 should change that. If iOS 11 is successful and people can ditch legacy platforms for mobile for nearly any task, we might be seeing the beginning of the end for MacOS. Again, I do believe this is where Apple would like to go. 

 

We still need to see such things as full Adobe equivalents for iOS. Also, I predict that we will finally see an iOS version of Final Cut Pro for the iPad. The new 512 GB storage on the iPad Pros announced yesterday suggests to me it is being set up for a very mobile video workstation. However, first there needs to be an Apple-endorsed method to easily import and export large video files directly to external drives. Wifi doesn't cut it when you have a 20 GB file that you need to quickly export. I'm hopeful that we will see that soon, too.

Hopefully 3D Touch will come in the next release next year till Accordance support it.

Just to confirm: the second beta for iOS 11 doesn't seem to have changed anything within Accordance - font issues still remain.

 

To reiterate, I totally appreciate that you're not expected to support beta versions - just keeping people posted in case they're pondering over getting the beta, especially now that the public beta is fast approaching.

Does anyone know if Accordance 12.1 will run on the latest Beta for MacOS High Sierra?

Yes, Accordance 12.1 runs well on Mac OS High Sierra beta. I have not had any issues with it at all.

For what it's worth, Accordance 10.4.5 doesn't work on High Sierra. It launches, but text isn't displayed within a workspace. Looks like it's time for me to upgrade. :-)
