What's New

Version 12.2.9

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.


* Massive updates to the BibleWorksHebrewToYehudit routine:
- Support for all the remaining characters, generated manually by comparing the raw fonts and matching as best as possible.
- Changed the incoming encoding to want windows ANSI, as some characters used by BWHebrew aren’t present in MacRoman.
- Fixed some small conversion errors.
- When swapping the order of vowels and consonants, reversed the vowel/cantillation order so it remains logical (Consonant -> Vowel -> Cantillation)
- If a conversion isn’t found, now the source character is retained.
- When swapping the final string, do it line by line, so the lines themselves aren’t reversed.
* Added support for importing a single book folder of User Notes, such as selecting the ‘Gen’ folder directly containing verse notes.
* Modified how research results display when the “Full Text” display option is selected:
- Tools with sub-articles will now also display the sub-articles of hits (up to a maximum number).
- In the NIDNTT, both Greek AND English will be treated as a default field, so that the entire article will be displayed for either.
* Adjusted how paper item indent and gear controls position, in order to prevent an overlap that could occur when the heading text spanned the full width of the page.
* Added the ability to use the character search option (period (.) for inline searching, and the CHAR item in the Construct tab) for Unicode characters for both Texts and Tools.
* Enhanced the construct CHAR dialog box by adding an option to select either ASCII or Unicode characters. This option is only supported for the Simple construct and is disabled for the Greek and Hebrew constructs.
* When pasting text directly into the CHAR item in the Construct tab, the paste style is now ignored.
* Improved case insensitive UTF8 string comparison for Armenian, that has problems with certain characters that capitalize oddly.
* “Copy as search URL” will now convert all component strings to unicode if any of them are unicode, which fixes an encoding issue in “Strong’s Number” search URLs.
* Accordance will now recognize the search field in a URL regardless of if the apostrophe in “Strong’s Number” is a regular apostrophe or a right single quotation mark.
* Increased the hardcoded limit on books in a user bible from 100 to 200, which allows Quran import to go through.
* Improved backward compatibility of Highlights files.
* Filenames of User tools that are converted to tools are now shortened before adding the ° symbol, if they are too long.
* Now if a module is deleted from the library, it is now also removed from user groups.
* Apple deprecated the option to have title bars on the side with MacOS 10.12. Adjusted any windows with side title bars to have them on top instead in 10.12 and up.
* Dialog Localization updates.
* Updated help for 12.2.9
