Since I have upgraded to 6.9.2 and 10.3.9 it seems that passages are tabbed away from the verse reference. This makes passages, especially poetry, not line up properly. See below... Why?

Psa. 37:3    Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

4 Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psa. 37:5    Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:

6 He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.

Psa. 37:7    Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
do not fret when men succeed in their ways,
when they carry out their wicked schemes.

Psa. 37:8    Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
do not fret—it leads only to evil.

9 For evil men will be cut off,
but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.

When this posted it changed the way it looks in Accordance. Psalm 37:4 looks like this (I hoope it posts right)...

4 Delight yourself in the Lord
and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Still didn't post right. I try and explain. The first line of vs. 4 looks as if it has been tabbed 1/4". The second line of vs. 4 begins, as if it were tabbed, under the "h" of the word delight. I hope this makes sense.

All I can say is that it is very difficult to get poetry to appear correctly in Accordance texts, allowing for variable wrap and font sizes and styles. Each Bible has many different "styles" of poetry and indents, and each text has probably been "coded" slightly differently in Accordance.

In the latest version we did try to improve the handling of poetry.

Since your posted excerpts do not convey what you are seeing, and you do not even specify the text you are looking at, I am not sure what the problem is. It may be helped by changing the font and size, or by using a different verse or reference display. If it still bothers you, you may send me a snapshot of the screen (off-list, please) so that I can try to reproduce the problem and find a solution.
