Quick background: I am a BW 10 user and have just recently gotten Accordance.  I use it for Bible translation work, so I often have several other applications open at the same time, especially Paratext (a Bible editing software program).  I have to move through the biblical text quite quickly in my work.  With Bibleworks I enjoyed the feature that enabled PT and BW to scroll together - just made it that bit faster to move through the text. 

 

I was pleased to see that Accordance had the same feature: "scroll text with other applications".  But it isn't working properly for me.  Every time I even click on a verse in Paratext, I get the error message "A verse range entry with a hypen cannot be used here, or there are extra characters after the end of the verse reference."

 

I have also tried scrolling it with Bibleworks, and it half-works.  If I advance the verse in Accordance, the verse in BW advances too.  But if I try going the other way, i.e. advancing the verse in BW, I get the same error message on Accordance.

 

Is there something I am doing wrong, or is this a bug in Accordance?

 

[P.S. It's a small thing, but notice there is a spelling error in the error message: should be hyphen not hypen. LOL.]

Hi,

 

I didn't know you could do this, and I can't find how to do it, at least so far. Could someone point out where this is in the Help?

 

Thanks, and regards,

 

Michel

Thank you, Orly!  At least now I know it isn't just "beginner's error"!

 

Michael, the setting is under the Utilities menu, second from the bottom.  You just click on it to turn it on.  I don't know which applications are considered compatible though, besides the ones I'm using. 

 

To get it to work, you might have to turn on a similar setting in whatever application you are trying to scroll it with.  In PT you have to select the option "Scroll Scripture with any compatible applications" in the Tools menu.

Is there a similar feature for the Mac version? With BW for Mac and Bibledit?

ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bug, which I describe.
