The thread title is pretty self-explanatory but here's a little more of what I am looking for. I found out, unfortunately, that there is no bookmarking feature which is basically what I need. I'd like to be able to pick verses from say Romans, Matthew, Galatians, Isaiah, and Genesis, group them under a label like "Atonement" and then access this list in the future. What are my options? Is there a standard feature or do I need to use a workaround?

 

I'm kinda bummed since I literally just bought Accordance and it appears the one feature I really need is absent.

Add the verses you need/want to a Reference List, and save the Reference list.

 

To do this, select, or mark the verses you are interested in, and then either
-go the the Selection menu, and choose "Add Selection to" (for a selection) of "Add Marked Verses To" (for marked verses) and then either "New Reference List" or an existing open Reference list. 

-or right click/control-click/two-finger click (depending on your OS and system settings) on a verse and chooss "Add Selection To" followed by "New Reference List" or an existing open Reference list.

A suggestion I would offer to make Reference List more convenient and easier to access. They should be saved into "My Stuff" area as Reference Lists.

 

Question: is there a way to click on the reference to see them in context?

You could also create a custom highlight named "Atonement" and to locate all of those verses quickly use [STYLE] in a search. There's usually multiple ways to do things in Accordance but perhaps it's not always obvious :)
Thanks,

They can be saved as "Workspaces" and then made a favorite workspace. Not quite as handy, as a separate Reference List section, I know.

Right-click (or control-click or two-finger click if you're on a Mac without a two-button mouse) on the verse and choose Lookup... and then Context.

 

Or, click in the verse and then click on the context button in the toolbar.
