  1. A new problem recently arose for me seemingly out of nowhere concerning my Dropbox syncing across my Mac, iPad, and iPhone. On all of them, trying to sync my content crashes the app. I didn't make any changes in my workflow. I had edited one of my user tools, which I frequently edit, went to sync manually with Dropbox, and the app crashed. I then tried it on my iPad and iPhone, with the same results. I thought it may have been a fluke, but I haven't been able to get my content to sync since a couple of days ago. I went to my Dropbox account and deleted the User Tools folder. I also moved the User Tools folder out of my Accordance Files on my Mac. I did another sync, and that worked, basically removing all of my User Tools. I slowly began re-importing my user tools into Accordance. I would import about 50, then sync. This seemed to work. However, after I got about half way through my tools, the Dropbox sync would start crashing the app again. So I tried to isolate a single user tool that may have been the problem, but to no avail. I have tried the 'Remove Saved Session' and 'Clear Download Cache' options in the iOS Accordance settings, but that hasn't worked. Any thoughts? On a side note, it would be really nice to be able to create and edit User Tools on the iOS versions. Editing my User Tools is really the only reason I ever open my laptop these days.

  2. Hi there, I am using Accordance mainly on my iPad and iPhone, I have also installed it on my desktop computer and laptop. Situation: While reading the Bible I usually take notes in "user notes", I also highlight verses and/or words, and so on. After my reading time I usually hit the sync button on my iPad and after syncing I also do the same on my iPhone. This will allow me to have the same notes and highlights on my phone as well. Straight forward and simple. Now, as we all are well aware of, Dropbox had a policy change and charges a fairly high amount of money for subscription. I would like to see the feature to sync all Accordance files via a file folder. The file folder of choice, obviously can be located in a cloud folder, where in turn all files would be synchronized. Has anyone solved the same or a similar problem? Has anyone the same request? Matt 6:33 Blessings, Olivier

    User Notes Directory for Syncing

    Howdy. Dunno if it was the upgrade to 13.3.0 or user error (not improbable), but my user notes have stopped syncing between computers. Where should I locate my user notes for syncing to resume? The only article I found was from 2018, which said Finder>Documents>Accordance Files, but that doesn't seem to do it anymore. MacOS 11.5.2/Accordance 13.3.0 Thanks.
  4. Hello! I use Dropbox on three PCs, my tablet and my phone. I use especially two of my PCs to an approximately equal extent, which is why I've tried to use the Dropbox sync function. I've set it to sync everything except Stacks, Papers and Current Session, and I've unchecked "Automatically Resolve User Note Conflicts" on both PCs. The bug, however, is that User Note Conflicts are being "automatically resolved" anyways. I wrote a comment to a few Bible verses in the User Notes on one PC, and I must have somehow synced the wrong way around, because after syncing on both PCs, the version with the latest additions was removed and replaced with the older version on the other PC without even asking me to decide which version to keep. Perhaps this is WAD, but if so, there should maybe be a warning that sync will overwrite files. A question: What does "sync with Dropbox" exactly do? Does it upload the user notes (etc) from the current PC to Dropbox, or does it download the user notes (etc) FROM Dropbox and overwrite the local Accordance files? Or does it somehow do both? What am I doing wrong? Best regards, Peter
  5. Out of nowhere this morning Accordance is crashing on my laptop upon opening it. It stays open for about 3 seconds, then crashes. I was already having trouble with my papers not syncing from my desktop to my laptop using Dropbox auto-sync. Up until now Dropbox sync has worked fine. I tried uninstalling Dropbox, since this seems to a major culprit according to the forums here. The problem persists. I saw that someone started Windows in safe mode and unlinked dropbox, but when I am in safe mode it just tells me Dropbox is already unlinked. Not sure what do try next. Here is the latest crash log: Accordance Crash Log Crashed at: 11:25:37:969 On: 20 of Apr, 2020 FLE Daylight Time OS: 10.0 build: 18363 - Windows 10 Memory load (MB): 42% Physical: 8056 Avail: 4636 Free disk user (MB): 217535 All free: 217535 Accordance Version 13.0.5 ( Message: Access violation Address: $57242BDC Backtrace: $57242BDC $57242C64 $572430DE $00569C73 $00571C8A $00585E2A $7736444B $77344F8C $77344B2A $7734E16F $77BE427D $00403E5D
  6. Hello, I have run into a major issue with syncing. I cannot sync my papers onto either of my iOS devices. The device specifics are listed in my signature. I am using the latest version of Accordance (Beta track and regular track on my Mac, regular track on my iPad & iPhone). All my papers are accessible on my Mac. Dropbox syncing appears to work on my iPhone X, but when I open up a paper it is blank except for the title information. Dropbox syncing on my iPad crashes Accordance. There are papers on my iPad, but like the iPhone only the title is showing up. User tools and notes appear to be fine on both. I have attempted to sync my papers with both devices via wifi sync as well (using the Beta & normal version of Accordance on my Mac), but none of my user items show up in the list of syncable modules.
  7. Whenever I sync my user notes with the Dropbox and there is something new in the user notes which need to be added to my Mac, Accordance closes currently open workspace (even if user notes are not open in any pane!) and doesn’t reopen it. I end up with empty screen. Just Accordance menu bar. However, when newer items are only on my Mac and they are being synced up to the Dropbox, workspace remains open. Accordance v.12.3.6, macOS 10.15.3 Beta 3 (this bug is already several months old, probably half a year, so even finalized macOS versions are affected, not just this beta version).

    Sync corrupted highlight files?

    In Acc. 12, I had three highlight styles defined: a yellow, a blue box, and a red pattern with vertical lines. I had each of these style named. I would sync these to my iPhone and could add/clear highlights there and they would sync to my desktop- it worked beautifully. I upgraded to Acc. 13. Then yesterday, I added a yellow highlight to some text on my phone. When I clicked "Sync" (to Dropbox), I got an error message that said something about a highlight file that needed to be changed to support the new version, or something like that. Then, my three styles were gone on my phone. They have been changed to "yellow," "turquoise," and "magenta" with no patterns and no longer any labels. When I launched my desktop version (13) this morning, at first it showed me my original three highlight labels. Then it crashed. Then I re-launched and, before my eyes, it changed the three styles to "yellow, turquoise, and magenta." Does v. 13 no longer support text labels for highlight styles? Thank you,
  9. Hi, Recently I noticed that after syncing Accordance 12.3.6 notes and highlights to my Dropbox folder, very often Accordance closes currently open workspace and doesnt’t reopen it. I have to open it anew. MacBook Pro 15.4” (mid-2014), macOS Catalina.
  10. I'm running Mojave (10.14.3) and Accordance (12.3.3) I have a MacBook with Accordance and just added an iMac for my in-office machine. I just installed Accordance on the iMac and want to sync my notes. I store the files in Dropbox and confirmed that it's working by Accordance preferences > syncing > clicked "Link to Dropbox" and it reported "your files are already being managed by Dropbox manually". Here's the weird problem: I noticed that the iMac doesn't see any of my MacBook's notes in Dropbox except one called "Sample notes v2." So I created a new note on the iMac and it drops into the same dropbox folder beside the old notes. Seems to work there. BUT, if I wait for the file to sync, then start Accordance on the Macbook, the MacBook doesn't see the new user file created on the iMac either! In summary, both Accordance installations see an original file, and both installations see new notes created on that machine, but neither installation sees any notes created by the other machine (Again, I waited for the files to sync onto the other machine, then restarted Accordance after that). I tried the Merge button but that doesn't show the files in question either. This sounds crazy to me. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
  11. Hi So I had just finished my finishing touches on my sermon preparation this Saturday night. I had written down and arranged everything on the "Paper". Right when I was trying to synchronise that Paper to the iPad for preaching via dropbox, the strangest thing happened. My paper did not synocronize and I still had an old version of the paper on my iPad. I tried a few more times to hit syncronize via dropbox and it did not work. Then I tried sync with mobile device and the same thing happened (it did not sync to the current version of the paper I had on the mac). Accordance then crashed and after I restarted it, the Mac had lost the paper! It was not even there at all! I went into the accordance files and navigated to the paper. I opened it and it was the same old version that was on the iPad. All my edits for that evening were gone! I however, had the sermon pretty well assimilated and could re-work it again. My concern is what if this happened just before I got up to preach? It could have been worse. Is this something that anyone is aware of? Did I do something wrong?
  12. Hi! Today I suddenly cannot finish syncing my Accordance mobile on iPhone 6 (iOS 11) with the Dropbox. It syncs highlighters, then updates Bible Text Notes and when the progress bar reaches the end, it crash and exit. Tried to sync with the Accordance for Mac, that went smoothly. Again tried Dropbox and again crash. Any ideas?

    Syncing Library Items?

    Please forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere (I did search for it and couldn't find the answer). Is there a way to sync the items in my library between different computers like I can the User Notes, User Tools, Bookmarks, etc.? I have a very large library in Accordance and all of the books are already on all four of my personal computers—I would just like a way to keep the Library Tab organized the same way on each computer. This used to be an easy task when my Accordance Library was small, but nearly impossible now.
  14. Hi, I’ve gotten a hang trying to close Accordance or shut down the computer, with Accordance open, because Accordance wants to do a Dropbox sync before it shuts down. This is all good, and expected, but, it seems like Accordance does not know what to do when I am riding in the car and there’s no internet connection for my MacBook Pro. Dropbox sync keeps struggling to save my session, etc, and it will not let me shut down Accordance. I sometimes have to do a force quit. Is there some way that you can have Accordance check to see whether there is an internet connection available before requesting the dropbox sync? If there is not an active connection available, could Accordance save the session and wait until there is an internet connection before trying to do the dropbox sync? ------ Maybe what we need is for Accordance to switch the sync option from ‘Automatic’ to ‘Manual’ when we are away from an internet connection...? I think this would prevent the endless sync loop that causes the hang. Thanks.
  15. Morning, I recently upgraded to an iPhone 7 plus (running iOS 10.3.1 & the Accordance 2.5.4). When I went to sync with Dropbox (do so on my Mac with no issues) Accordance did not recognize the existing Accordance sync folder in Dropbox and instead created a new one.
  16. The syncing in general works fine for me, both WIFI sync or dropbox, which I prefer. I use iPad, iPhone and 2 Mac Laptops and 1 Windows Laptop. No real problem so far. No I have been looking more into getting more User Tools into Accordance, have written an import script to automate this (https://www.accordancebible.com/forums/topic/20404-user-tool-import—making-it-more-doable/?p=100256) and have create a little structure (folders) ordered by authors. Unfortunately it seems that the structure is not respected during the sync, I would understand it (little bit) for iOS, but even on the other computers all the imported User Tools appear in a single list and no folders appeared. Am I doing something wrong or is there no folder / structure sync at the moment? Would be a big + for me, otherwise the list gets too messy. Thanks a lot. Best Regards
  17. I have never received any syncing error messages, but I continually find "Recovered files" upon restarting my MacBook. There used to be multiple files recovered. I have since cleaned up and removed some sample and user notes files which resolved most of my issues. The remaining file that continually gets recovered is: Current Session.accord. I always close the Accordance program before shutting down my MacBook. Dropbox syncing takes place successfully and it appears to be updated on Dropbox correctly. Any ideas on how to resolve this continual recovered file issue on Mac OS? Acc 12.0.2, Mac OS 10.12.2 (although this issue has also occurred before updating, from Acc 11.X.X & Mac OS 10.11.X) Thank you for your time. Michael

    Syncing with Dropbox

    When I have synced my iPhone (via Dropbox), second time I try to sync it says there is nothing to sync. OK, everything's synced. But my Mac always finds something to sync. Even if I have synced it five times in a row. Could you improve here?
  19. I just installed Accordance 11 on Windows 10 (Surface Pro 4) because I just got a new device. During the setup process the Dropbox link button wouldn't do anything so I continued with the setup without linking to my Dropbox account. Now that it's fully installed and all books downloaded I opened preferences and went to the Sync section in Preferences. I click on the button and nothing happens. If i hit OK it crashes Accordance. If I hit Cancel nothing happens.

    Preference Sync

    I would really like to see Accordance expand its Dropbox synchronization support to the full array of Accordance preferences. For example, it'd be great if my font settings, default commentaries, etc., could be synchronized from computer to computer. It'd also be nice if the organization of the library into folders could be preserved from computer to computer -- for example, I like to put my most used models in each category at the top of the respective folders (commentaries, study Bibles, etc.). But, I dislike having to redo that on my two Macs, because I never quite get everything the same it seems. While this isn't a huge deal, it would be a time saver since I wouldn't have to try to manually keep my two installations in sync.

    You cannot link to Dropbox…

    I am trying to setup Dropbox sync and keep getting the following error: "You cannot link to Dropbox, as your Accordance Fiels are already being managed by Dropbox manually." Any help would be appreciated.
  22. Accordance Windows keeps just deleting my highlight files in Dropbox when I try Dropbox syncing.
  23. Hi. Since I've updated to the new version of accordance my notes no longer sync between my Mac and iOS. They were syncing fine via dropbox before and I don't get any error messages when I sync, but the notes I create on the iOS don't import onto the Mac and vice versa. I've already tried unlinking and re-linking the iOS account. Any suggestions?
  24. Hi, I've just installed Accordance on a new Mac, but am having trouble getting it to sync with dropbox to load notes, etc. from my other devices. When I go to link with Dropbox, I get a message that says, "You cannot link to Dropbox, as your Accordance Files are already being managed by Dropbox manually" along with an instruction to move Accordance Files to their initial location. I haven't moved any Accordance Files - I've only just installed the program on the new Mac. Does anyone know how to resolve this? Thanks, Keith

    Dropbox Oddness

    Hello, When I upgraded to 11.0.3 I suddenly got errors on dropbox sync with several of my user tools: I get the message The text "<filename>" is not currently available to Accordance. It repeats every time Dropbox attempts to sync, there are two files it's having trouble with. Any ideas?
