  1. I tried searching the forums for these two issues but came up short. I'm running Mac OS 10.14.6, Accordance 13.1.7, with Dark Mode enabled. #1 - Editing a User Layer in the 2D Atlas (see Screenshot 1). When I go to edit my new User Layer (Tovar Bible Study), parts of the editing palette that appears are very difficult to see. #2 - Editing a User Note and adding a Resource Link (See Screenshot 2). The text I enter in the "Search" field is very difficult to see (light gray against white background). Is there any thing I can do to fix either of these issues? Se

    3d atlas help?

    For some reason I can't grab a 3d image from the map. I'm running 13.1.3 on macOS Mojave 10.14.6. The screenshot shows the error I keep getting. Is there something that can be done? Thanks in advance.
  3. I use the Accordance Atlas module quite a lot for college teaching purposes, but there is one aspect of it that I find very frustrating: scaling and scrolling. Showing the same region over time in multiple class sessions is made difficult. Also, adding places to the map via search causes the scale to change. For example, suppose I adjust the map so that it’s zoomed in as far as possible while still showing Ur, Haran, and Hebron on the screen. If I then search for Bethel, boom, the map scale changes and now we’re looking at a close-up of Judea and Samaria; even Kinneret is no longer visible, mu

    Atlas Feature Request: Scale

    I appreciate all the fine work that has been placed into this atlas design and functionality. Currently when the Atlas module displays a map — in the lower left corner a scale is shown, indicating one unit on the map is X units on the ground. This is useful and standard. Next to it is a "distance scale" for measuring distance on the map when it is printed or copied for presentation use. This is also vey useful. However, this scale is shown in metric units only. While I acknowledge that metric is the measurement of science (archeology) many lay people think in feet, yards, miles, etc.

    Expanded Atlas

    Is it possible to expand the geographical scope of the Accordance Atlas? I do a lot of work with Ethiopic, Ethiopian Christianity, and Ethiopian Judaism, and being able to make custom maps in Accordance that include both Ethiopia and South Arabia would be incredibly helpful. The lack of this makes it more difficult to use the Accordance Atlas in general, as I have to switch between applications due to not having all of my maps in the same place. Thanks! David

    Crossway ESV Bible Atlas

    I wish I could get this on Accordance: Crossway ESV Bible Atlas https://www.crossway.org/books/crossway-esv-bible-atlas-hccase/
  7. Hi there, I'm aware that there's no way to add custom sites to the Atlas. However, is it possible to convert existing site names into a non-Latin script (e.g. Arabic)? Technically, I'm not looking to create a new Atlas site, but rename an existing one. I'm hoping to help a non-English speaker brush up on his ancient geography. Much appreciated.
  8. Under the File menu when in the Atlas, I am able to choose "Save As Picture" to export a map as either a JPG or PNG bitmap. Is there a way to save a map as a vector-based file, such as EPS, SVG, etc? I have been able to do a partial work around by "printing" a map as a PDF. Unfortunately, the PDF that is generated from Atlas is not very clean and it breaks the map image into "pages." Ideally, I would like to be able to save a map file in a vector-based format so various elements such as labels, call-outs, routes, region names, etc would be editable in vector-based image editing softwar

    Atlas not opening.

    I'm using Acc.12.3.2 on a 13" MacBook pro and I've just noticed an odd bug. Whenever I do a fresh open on Accordance that my toolbar atlas icon doesn't respond and my Atlas folder in Library doesn't have any coloured maps available. I can go into Apple finder and open the maps from there by double-clicking and then I can use maps in accordance as normal, until I close it and then I have to open the maps manually again.

    #160) Josiah's Death

    The latest Lighting the Lamp podcast, #160) Josiah's Death, is up and available for viewing: https://www.accordancebible.com/Josiahs-Death It is a study of this important incident with an emphasis on using atlases in Bible study. The battle in which Josiah dies is centered around the pass at Megiddo, through which Pharaoh Neco must pass if he is to join forces with Assyria to resist Babylon's expansion. The subsequent battle at Carchemish is one of the most important events in ancient Near Eastern history. Remember, this week is March Mapness, so it is a great time to add an atlas or t
  11. The distance measure is very handy in Atlas. However, sometimes it is very easy to forget how to call it out simply by pressing the option key. If there is a icon in Atlas toolbar next to 3D map would be very helpful. Moreover, I think the defined user function has great possibility to make nice pictures in teaching and bible study. I found that one thing can make the map clearer is user is able to adjust the text sizes and colors to avoid the overlap of mixed information. Therefore, in a map, people can easily read the different importance of different layers information. Besides, maybe
  12. Hello. I just installed Atlas 2.2, but only brown and beige can be shown. Other colors is not possible, location of files is asked again and again. Though I already installed and can't install or download again in Easy Install. How can I solve this problem? My accordance 10.4.5. JOY

    Mouse Input for Atlas module

    I really appreciate the updates to the Atlas module that make navigation easier with a touchpad, but I primarily use my MacBook Pro in clamshell mode with a magic mouse. Since Apple users already have an API for the Apple Maps module, could the same commands (shift, alt + swipe) be added to the Atlas module to control zoom, tilt, and rotate?

    Atlas Data

    Hi, I'm wondering if there's a source for the Atlas data, specifically routes, specifically the minor road indicated going from the sea road between Tyre and Sidon towards Dan. See attached file. Thanks.
  15. While creating custom layers in Atlas, could there be an UNDO feature, just in case 3 steps down you realize you made a mistake, and instead of losing all the data/moves you previously made because you didn't click save, you could hit undo for a few steps instead? Also, After CMD-F (Find) on map, I realize that there is no CLEAR ALL SEARCHES button, but what I'd have to do to make all the highlighted "found" cities not be red is to close the map and open a new one. But then, there's all the selections I've also made, etc. When showing a class it'd be nice to be able to clear my searches

    Timeline-Atlas Feature

    Just an idea, but one I think would be amazing... What if there was connection (something akin to the LINK command) between different resources and the Atlas or Timeline....or the Atlas to the Timeline...? Imagine scrolling through a time period and seeing the atlas transform based on the time! This would certainly sanctify the imagination! Thanks!

    #139 Accordance Graphics Bundle

    To celebrate our special sale on Accordance's Graphics Bundle, we have a brand new podcast this week! This podcast replaces an older version (#15), which was produced years ago at a measly 600x400. It was great for the day, but was beginning to show its age. Our latest Lighting the Lamp podcasts are all full HD (1920x1080), so there's lots more space to show off these amazing three graphics resources. Enjoy! https://vimeo.com/164200469
  18. I have heard that you can measure distances using the Accordance Bible Atlas. I have searched high-and-low to find out how. I still don't believe there is an easier way than treating my monitor like a paper map and counting inches. John P.S. Is there any way to convert km to mi within Bible Atlas? Unbelievably frustrating.

    Separate Atlas App

    I've always thought that the iPad would make the perfect tool for a comprehensive historical map of the biblical world. I've often looked in the App Store for something to satisfy my needs but sadly no one has ever done even a somewhat decent job of this, at least as far as I've found. I know that there are plans to bring the Accordance Atlas over to iOS, for which I am very excited. Hopefully this comes sooner than later! I was just thinking that instead of incorporating it into the Accordance App, it may be more beneficial to create an entirely separate app dedicated strictly to the Atla
  20. Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World Edited by Richard J. A. Talbert http://press.princeton.edu/images/j6773.gif http://press.princeton.edu/titles/6773.html Although hard copies of the atlas are prohibitively expensive, an iPad app of it is extremely reasonable. http://press.princeton.edu/apps/barrington-atlas/ It would be nice to have in Accordance!
  21. I have Atlas installed and mostly working, but I am getting an error message when I try to open Atlas in certain backgrounds, or change to certain backgrounds. The culprits are: Infrared, Light Browns, Night Vision, and Satellite. Instead I get the error message: "The file "name of background" can not be used, because it has a different data format from the other Atlas files already opened. Please be sure that all Atlas files available to Accordance are installed from the same CD-ROM" I am using Accordance 11.0.3 and Atlas 2.2 Atlas 2.2 was an downloaded upgrade from Atlas 1 which was boug

  23. I'm thankful for the new info pane in Accordance 11. It looks up the references instantaneously. The cover art on the commentaries is a neat feature. When you click on the graphic it opens up and tracks with the entries. I'm particularly impressed how it works with multiple references. When I opened a workspace of favorite verses, then clicked add parallel and chose info pane, it brought it up in seconds. The shift-click for verses that runs a quick topic search saves time and effort. One question: How do you select all the verses in the cross-reference section
  24. Hi, I'm trying to edit the 'Roman Provinces' Region Set map. What I'd like to do is to display the regions data that comes there but remove the colour fill so that the map can be printed and written on. Can this be done through defining 4 user layers ('My Roman Empire, My NT Palestine, etc.) and then in those layers can I set the borders/colours that I want. Then create a 'set' called 'My Roman Provinces' that combines these 4 layers? Is there a better way to customise colours without loosing the default settings? Daniel

    Atlas module doesn't work

    I recently upgraded my software to include the Atlas module. However, it is impossible to open it. When I try, it asks me where to find the "Colors" / "Vivid colors" / "Browns" / etc. / file. I have looked for it but it is impossible to locate it. If I open Library/Application support/Accordance/Atlas files, "Altitude data" and "Map data" are there, but the "backgrounds" folder is empty (see the attached file). Can you help me, please? Many thanks. Accordance: version 10.4.1 mac: OS X 10.9.2
