I would like to be able to specify the font and font size of Biblical text to be exported to a word processor. I would also like to be able to have the citation for the Biblical text be given in bold or italics or both independent of the Biblical text itself. It would also be nice to have the option of having the verse numbers of the exported text as superscripts with the ability to have them in bold. I love what I am able to do with Accordance, but these additions would make it even better (for me :) ).

Soli Deo Gloria,
Randy

You can't do all of that, but are you familiar with the "Copy as Citation" function, which is quite customizable? You can read about it in the help files.

Sometimes I'm so helpful even I can't stand it.

I have made similar requests before, but I say a BIG +1 to this. I love Accordance, but this is easily the BIGGEST need for improvement. I know it is not as snazzy as new resources or some other features, but what it lacks there it makes up for in sheer volume of usage. I export all the time, and it is a huge time waster to have to superscript fonts and other such formatting after the export. It would be a huge improvement to allow us to create and save multiple export settings. Each should include font, size, highlighting options, allow superscripting of verse numbers, etc.

Thanks Joe. I am familiar with what you have suggested, but it is quite limited in its "customizability."
