As I mentioned over in another thread, I've moved back to a Mac (my old iMac for now, getting an iMac Pro next year. Helen was so right about my missing a Mac). I had a few questions about getting settled back into Accordance for Mac:

 

1. On Accordance 12.1.1 on macOS Sierra, every time I click a different tab under Preferences, the macOS Alert sound (in my case a loud duck quack) chimes. What would cause this to happen? It didn't happen back when I previously used Accordance 11 on a Mac (this is a clean install of macOS and clean install of Accordance)?

 

2. Is there a way to set Accordance where I can launch it in Full Screen Mode every time I launch it, and is it recommended to do that or can it cause issues?

 

3. Is there a way to hide PhotoGuide 4 from appearing in my list of downloads in Easy Install (it was visible in Windows as well)? Now that I've upgraded to the PhotoGuide Set of 6, I've tossed PhotoGuide 4 from my library, and I really don't need to see it as an install option in Easy Install Either.

 

Thanks!

This is a known bug. I'm not hearing it in the newest testing build, so I believe this has been taken care of more than likely.

 


2. Is there a way to set Accordance where I can launch it in Full Screen Mode every time I launch it, and is it recommended to do that or can it cause issues?

 

I assume you're referring to the macOS mode where your menus disappear. With Preferences: General Settings: Startup set to "Last Session," I just tested this by closing Accordance while in full scren mode. When I restarted Accordance, it remained in full screen mode. 

 

What do you have Startup set to? 

 

 

3. Is there a way to hide PhotoGuide 4 from appearing in my list of downloads in Easy Install (it was visible in Windows as well)?

This has been requested and may show up in a future update.

Thanks for the updates, Rick. Sounds good about #1 and #3. Right now I have Accordance set to a custom session. I'll try Last Session and pop it into Full Screen Mode and see how it goes.

 

Thanks again!

Or do this. I'm not certain if by "custom session" you mean "default session" or "favorite workspace," but either way, set it the way you like it and make that your "custom." So, if it's a default session, set it the way you like and go back into preferences and reset it as your default. Or if it's a favorite workspace, save it again. That should get it the way you want it starting out.
