I have never been able to use the keyboard short-cut for copying a passage as a citation. I always have to go to the menu (Edit > Copy As > Citation). The shortcut "shift + command + C" seems to not copy anything to the clipboard at all.

I use Accordance 6.5 on OS 10.4

This did not work in Panther for me either. Any idea or anyone else have the same problem? This is used by me primarily for citing passages like the following.

ýComplete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servantţ
(Phil. 2:2-7, ESV)

Thanks in advanced,

You are misreading the modifiers for the copy command. The Shift-command modifiers are used to paste commands into the entry box, so we have to use others when we need to modify key commands. For copying they are:
  • Option-command C copies the selection to the clipboard without any superscript characters
  • Control-command C copies the selected text as a citation
  • Option-command R copies only the references of the selected text
  • Control-command T copies the selected text as Rosetta transliteration
  • Command [ stores the styles of the selected text
  • Command ] replaces the styles of selected text with the previously stored styles (these two may not work on all keyboards)
There is a complete list of keyboard shortcuts in the Reference section of the Help.

I hope this helps.

This link should take you directly there if your Accordance folder is in your Applications folder.

For future reference, I put a key to those symbols up on my blog
