There continues to be a problem with selecting text in Bible text search results.

9.x and earlier behavior:
Enter text search, e.g. Judges 7:1-25
Press command+A to highlight all
Edit -> Copy As in order to get the appropriate format for use

Since 10, continuing into 10.0.2
Enter text search, e.g. Judges 7:1-25
Press command+A to highlight all

Much more than just the intended search area gets highlighted

Manually highlight Judges 7:1-25 by click and drag

Once the window starts scrolling, the area that appears to be selected changes. For example, though verse 1 might still copy, once I start scrolling down verse 1 no longer appears to be selected.

Loss of command+A to highlight just the search result text also seems like a large loss in functionality.

This is a nature of the Auto Context feature in Accordance 10. Most users like the context to automatically adjust to their search, so if they search for Judges 7:1, it shows that verse in the context of the entire text. But, if you don't want to show it in the entire text, take the context slider (left of the 'Verse x of x' text) and move it from A down to zero. That'll limit the display to just your verses, so when you Command-A, it'll only select those verses.

If you never want Accordance to automatically adjust the context for you, you can turn it off in Preferences -> Search Tabs -> Add automatic context.
