Every week paste in sentences and/or paragraphs for other resources in my primary sermon prep User Tool, to organize my exegesis. Many of these resources make references to Scripture passage that Accordance can't decipher.
For example, the following is from the TWOT:
A feminine noun from the root חָקַק “enscribe scribe” or “engrave.” חֻקָּה is used in the combination חֻקּוֹת עוֹלָם (perpetual statute) to designate an ordinance from God which is perpetually binding, e.g. the regulations of Passover (Ex 12:14), Unleavened Bread (12:17; cf. 13:10), Booths (Lev 23:41), Day of Atonement (16:29, 31, 34), the Aaronic priesthood (Ex 29:9), the perpetual light (Lev 24:3), the priest’s linen clothing (Ex 28:43) Blowing of trumpets (Num 10:8), laws for the sojouner (15:15), and laws of uncleanness (19:10, 21).
Within a User Tool, Accordance can't recognize the underlined references above, because the book name is missing. While I can go back and edit these paragraphs to include them, then I no longer have an exact quote, and in my notation of the source I have to add a note that I've edited the quote for Scripture references.
This isn't a horrendous problem for me since my focus is sermon prep. But if I were using a User Tool to organize items for a scholarly article or a seminary paper it would be. It's also proving to be an issue for folks who are creating User Tools from public domain works.
What I envision is a command that opens a dialog that asks for the text as it is to appear in the User Tool and then the properly formatted link. Accordance would then mark the text entry as a Scripture link, and store the proper link to use when the item is clicked, much as standard Accordance modules appear to do now.
Thanks for considering it,
As an aside, I don't know why the Hebrew in the quote above didn't line up properly. I have Accordance set to export Unicode. Maybe it's an issue with Firefox 3.
