The request is to have the “copy as” feature work on Bible as it does on other resources…

 

When using the “copy as” feature with any Bible text

…if I choose copy as a citation, I get this

(1 Kings 11:4)

“In Solomon’s old age, they turned his heart to worship other gods instead of being completely faithful to the LORD his God, as his father, David, had been.”

 

…if I choose copy as bibliography, I get this

(1 Kings 11:4)

 

I am not getting this information

NLT (2nd ed.)

 

New Living Translation, Second Edition (NLT-SE)

Note that for other resources, I get all the information

When using the “copy as” feature with any other text (i.e. commentary)

…if I choose copy as a citation, I get this

The Lord told Solomon, it is likely by a prophet, what he must expect for his apostacy.

I understand the need for this but I would still want the option to work as it does at the moment as well

If I copy as citation I get this:

 

“Genesis 1:1   In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.”

(Genesis 1:1–2 NIV11-GKE)

 

If I copy as Bibliography, I get this:

 

(Genesis 1:1–2 NIV11-GKE)

 

Make sure you have this preference set and try again...

I know this still doesn’t give the extended information like publication date etc that you might desire, but you generally only need that once (in a Bibliography) in a paper...can be copied and pasted from the “about this text” dialog.
