I would love it if I could copy and paste from Accordance into my document and get a footnote to accompany the text so that I don't have to type it in. What would make this really useful is if the footnote would follow a certain style (i.e. I can make it Turabian or MLA)...

What do you think?

I agree that this would be something beneficial, especially for those of us who are writing papers, or manuscript our sermons with quotes that we glean from our Accordance modules. This is a feature that the Logos software has and I covet for Accordance.

I'll third that one. I used this feature often in my past life...

I think that what y'all are asking for is an automatic customizable bibliographic reference for excerpts from tools modules. It's not really a footnote. It will require quite a bit of work on our part and will have to wait until next year.

We are now working on a customizable citation format for text modules, which has long been demanded. Please be patient with us.

That is great news! Even having to wait, it's still great to know it's in the pipeline.
