[SOLVED!] I search the Bible text, find one verse, tap to see it in context. Now I want to copy 3 verses, but . there is no option for that. Only one verse. Please add here option to select several verses for copying and highlighting.

Agreed. It would be very useful as I have to switch to a different app in order to copy more than one verse, but I would prefer to stay in accordance instead.

Hmm, not sure what the problem is. Let me walk through how I do it.

 

I will use "atonement" as an example.

 

Open the text and do a search

Attached File  Xidasoft-Control-Window.png   305.49KB   0 downloads Attached File  Xidasoft-Control-Window-1.png   386.04KB   0 downloads

click the "Spectacles" icon to exit search results mode, so you can see the context (which is I assume what you did Guntis). At this point you do lose your search results, but they can be quickly recovered just by doing the search again.

Click and hold on the verse reference and the sheet will slide up with the options available, and you can use the triangles to the right and left to extend the verse selection,.

tap copy verse and voila, you have more than one verse copied.

If I have misunderstood the problem, then please let me know.

Thank you! World like a charm :-)
I didn't notice those triangles. My fault, sorry.

That's no problem Guntis. It's easy to miss stuff! I do it all the time.

However, this works only when you are viewing the entire text, not after a search and not after tapping Context even though all the text is there. The triangles are not. I thought that was the original complaint.

I thought copying more than one verse after search. then show in context was the original as well and it's still a great suggestion for a new feature.

Oh, yes! Now I see the problem! I can copy multiple verses only in the main text view mode. Not in the Search or "Show in Context" mode.
