When I triple click a Hebrew word to open HALOT, I can context click to "Copy as User Tool Link." But when I paste it in my user note, the expected Hebrew word shows in English letters that correspond to the Hebrew letters. The same thing happens when I triple click a Greek word to open BDAG and paste in the User Tool Link. I do not think this is the right behavior.

If I understand you correctly, the Greek or Hebrew word is being transformed into English letters in the link reference. e.g. [BDAG, Greek Entry, diaspei÷rw]

This is, indeed normal behavior. From Accordance Help:

The search entry must be in English characters but will work in a different field.
For example, in a text [GNT-T, W, agaph] will open and search the GNT-T for the word for love,


I would prefer it to be Greek and Hebrew letters, but it's apparently not technically feasible to do it that way.

Thanks Lorinda,

You understood me right. It's too bad that this doesn't work!
