Great day all,

 

How do I remove the rectangle around a location I added in the map (see attached)?

 

Also, how do I add locations to the search, so that I can find them in the future via search?

 

Thanks.

To answer your first question, to remove the box around a label, select "Byblos" and click the "N" button on the editing palette.

Beautiful.  That helps with the first part, Mark.  Thanks.

 

Also, is this just a problem with Accordance' handling, or why is my site fading into a gray box after I zoom out from it?  I've increased the font size to test this, and it turns out that the bigger the font size I make my inputted site ("Byblos"), the farther I have to zoom out before it disappears.

 

But in this screenshot (attached), you can see that even at about 12 to 14 font size, my site still disappears when I zoom out beyond a certain point.

I've seen that behavior too. I think what's happening is that when you zoom out to a certain point, the smaller permanent locations simply disappear. But the user-created sites don't disappear, so they end up looking like grey boxes. I guess the answer is to either increase the font size of the labels, or live with the grey boxes.

BTW, I don't believe there's a way to search for user-created sites in the Atlas. What I do is create a lot of User Layers and label them appropriately so that I can find user-created items more easily.

It smells like a bug to me. But to replace the disappear with the grey box indicates there is something.

So the search  list should be updated then. Maybe there is also a conflict then with the search in different languages UI.

Thanks for the suggestion on this, but I'd love to have the ability to search for sites I add.
