Hi there. 

I'm using Accordance XII and I'm wondering if there is a way to get a display setting that gives me a "clean" bible view. This view would remove all chapters, verses, and paragraph indentations. It would be similar to the ESV reader or Adam Lewis Greene's Bibliotheca kick starter project. 

Thanks for the feedback!

It is definitely doable. You can change this in the Preferences window under Text Display. And welcome to the forums!!


The screenshots are from Accordance 13 so there might be minor differences, but the Text Display should be the same.

Thank you, revtim. This gets me pretty close! I think I can live with the paragraph indentations.  :D

Chonn on revtims images you see the "Show as" selector. Choose the one without the "Space". 


BTW where revtim shows it is for all Bibles. But you can do this also only on selected Bibles. Use then Command-T, Advanced,...

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

Bring more international Bibles to the store,
fix my reported bugs, even the old ones which never was addressed,
develop my feature requests, the new once and the once I made years ago,
in nearer future.
