  • Accordance Version:10.x

Posted 02 December 2013 - 05:22 PM

Hi everyone,

 

New user here and I have two questions.

 

1.  How do I copy more than one verse to past into a Word document?  Lets say I find 10 random verses on "love" and want to paste them into by Bible Study.

2.  Being a new user I could sure use the assistance of a users manual.  Is there a manual anywhere I can purchase to guide me along my journey into Accordance?

 

Thanks everyone,

Michael

Michael,

Welcome. Kudos to you on riding the forums to get help.

 

I'm trying to decipher why you're having difficulty copying multiple verses. I am wondering maybe the issue is that after doing a search, the text window is still showing ALL verses. If that is the case, if you move the "Context" slider down to 0, it will only display the verses that had "hits" on your search. Then you select all and copy. But, I may be way off on what you're asking.

 

The Help menu has all kinds of great resources. I think the best thing for you would be to start with the Feature overviews at

http://www.accordanc...le.com/Features

 

Secondly, the complete Accordance Help files are the exhaustive help resource (the manual if you will). The "Accordance Help" link under the Help menu. You can see there an outline of all the indexed topics.  That is great to explore areas of interest.  

But also, there is a fantastic menu item under the "Window" menu, called "Window Help".  That item will take you to the page in the "Accordance Help" documentation that pertains to the current window you have open.  Great stuff.

I've read the Seminar Training Manual, even outside of the context of a seminar, and found it a useful quick start guide, if you want something in print. But Joe is right: there's not much those help files don't cover--they're pretty awesome.

Something else to help you to learn Accordance is to check out the Lighting the Lamp podcast, which covers many of the ways you can use the program.

Hi everyone and thanks for your guidance.  I need to clarify my first question a bit.

 

 I know how to copy a single verse and how to copy John 1:1 through John 1:10.  What I don't understand is how to copy random  verses.  Lets say John 1:1, Mark 3:4 and Matt 25:2. Currently I have to copy and paste them one at a time which is very laborious and time consuming.  I need to past multiple verses to the clip board and then paste them as a group.

 

Thanks again.

Michael.

You can add any verses you choose to a Reference List (Selection menu) and then save that tab, display any versions in it, copy and paste from it, delete verses, or use the CONTENTS command to search it in another tab.

1 Type in John 1:1, Mark 3:4 and Matt 25:2 into the search window

2 Make sure the context slider is set to 0 (It's immediately below the search window)

3 Hit Enter to perform search

5 From there you can use cmd-A to highlight all three verses

6 Copy as you would a single verse...

 

Hope this is what you are after...

You can also add any verses you wish to a reference list via Control-Command-R (on the Mac) or Right-click-> Add Selection To (on Win or Mac).  From this reference list, you can copy and paste the discontiguous verses.

I still think the issue for Michael is just that his Context slider is set to All.

Smiling .... You can really tell I am a new user.

 

The problem is not in your answers (which are helpful) it is my wording the question correctly, Let me give it one more try.

 

I just typed in "bondage" in the search menu. KJVS is my bible selection.  I got a hit of 37 verses. While reading through the 37 verses I found four that Id like to paste into my Bible study. I know how to highlight and paste one at a time. What I want to do is copy the four I want  and then paste them all at once.  Copying and pasting them four times is a real chore that is very time consuming.  

 

I should be able to copy the first verse I choose, then copy the second, then the third and finally the fourth. (note, they are in separate books of the Bible)  Then as a last step paste all four at one time in to my Word document. Presently when I try this now it only pastes only the last verse I have copied.

Helen .... I think your answer is the solution to my newbie question.  It allows me to copy and then append that list ... and then paste in one step.

 

Thank you so much for your help.  You have saved me who knows how much time.

 

If you have a fax, I'll fax you a fresh made coffee and a slice of homemade apple raisin bread,,,,,its the thought that counts.

 

Again thanks,

Michael

Just learn something that I think it may work too and it is pretty cool: the Mark selection (CMD+7).

 

Using the mark selection (CMD+7) to select the verses you want to copy, then Selection>Add marked Verses to>Reference list to copy all selected verses and then print it or copy paste.

 

Would that work too?

Yes, David, the Mark-a-verse feature is very cool, and useful for lots of things.

It probably is a little difficult to understand at first, I would think. See my followup in the other thread.

I really like this Accordance feature. To be able to search for multiple verses at the same time is extremely useful.

David, in addition to all this if you are in a commentary or dictionary and it gives you a list of references i.e...
"Hebrew word is found in Genesis 2:4; 5:1; 6:9; 10:1; 11:10, 27; 25:12, 19; 36:1, 9; 37:2.   

If you hover over the first ref you'll get a magnifying glass, then if you press cmd and drag over the rest, when you let go you'll get a handy search list of just those references.

Paul: You are almost correct. You can click and drag to open a set of references, but you can simply command-click (control on Windows) to open all the references in a paragraph. However, Michael was wanting to copy verses out of his search results.
