This week, we’ve released a quartet of Accordance updates across all our platforms: Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Here’s the lowdown.
Accordance 12.2.9 (Windows/macOS)
This update brings major improvements for importing User Notes from BibleWorks. This includes better matching for Hebrew characters, importing single Book folders of User Notes, and more. There are also minor updates related to Unicode, Simple Constructs, User Bibles, User Tools, and localizations.
For more detailed list of what’s new in v. 12.2.9, go to our “New Features Since 12.0” page and our “Bug Fixes Since 12.0” page.
Update your installation of Accordance 12 by selecting App Update on the Utilities menu (Windows) or the Accordance menu (macOS).
Update: Accordance 12.2.9 is also now available in the Mac App Store.
Accordance Mobile 1.2 for Android
Accordance Mobile 1.2 for Android smartphones and tablets introduces a number of new enhancements, especially relating to text selection, copying text, and support for audio playback!
Tap and hold text for Instant Details and the ability to copy your selection. Any content with embedded or streaming audio can now be played from within the Accordance Mobile app. We’ve also added a number of other features such as support for PaleoHebrew, the choice of whether or not to include footnote markers or Hebrew cantillation when copying text, the ability to display more Accordance titles than before, and more.
Update Accordance Mobile for Android Version 1.2 from the Google Play Store or the Amazon Appstore for Android. It can also be downloaded directly from our server but will need to be updated manually.
Accordance Mobile 2.7.2 for iOS
Accordance Mobile v. 2.7.2 for iOS delivers a number of fixes, updates, and improvements, especially to Paper documents imported from Accordance on Windows and Mac.
Now there is much better support for selecting view options in Paper documents to display explanations, contents, endnotes, and bibliographical information. Tap on footnote or endnote indicators to see destination content in Instant Details. From there, choose to go to that content or amplify. External links in Paper documents can be displayed in Instant Details.
Other improvements to Paper documents include better handling of bibliographic hyperlinks to titles not present on the device. Ibid entries distinguish between page and paragraph numbers and properly support Unicode localization. Even better, Paper Display options now update immediately on iPads.
Besides the above improvements to Paper documents, there are updates to popovers on landscape iPhones and better handling of formatting for original languages in User Notes.
Accordance Mobile for iOS can be updated in the App Store.
