  • Accordance Version:9.x

For years I have used Online Bible for Mac to import Bible verses into other applications. I have set up keystroke combination and it works really great. I have yet to figure out how this is done with Accordance. Is there a way to do the same with Accordance? I have included a picture of how Online Bible comes up in other applications. It is really simple. I can chose what version and either a verse or a range of verses.

Hi
well, there is normal copy and paste. Just select your text and press CMD-C or choose it from the EDIT menu and then paste it directly into your application. It even works for Greek and Hebrew.

Alternatively, a more elegant copy option is to use the COPY AS => CITATION option - also in the EDIT menu, but in the COPY AS section further down. THis copies all your selected text into a single block quote and then puts the reference at the end of it. (also accessible via CMD-CTRL-C)

These are both also available in the contextual menu (right click the selected text)

Word doesn't play happily with some of this - especially Hebrew. And Joe Weak's service commands are excellent - highly recommended (you can also find them in the newly updated Accordance Exchange here)

There is a third option which is CMD-OPT (or ALT)-C which does the same as CMD-C but omits the superscripts.

Soli Deo Gloria,
