Perhaps I am missing a step.  Whenever I copy a sentence or paragraph (as citation) from Accordance, Mac or Windows, and paste the text into a working WORD document with footnotes/bibliography, I never see a citation.  Just the text I'm copying appears.

 

Is there something I am not doing?  I've looked at the Citation/Bibliography Preferences and have kept them with their default values.

 

Thanks for any help.

You just need to highlight the text, right click, and then choose "Copy as Citation". A straight Cmd-C or Ctrl-C (Win) just gives you text. Hope this solves it for you

Yeah, that's what I do.  I paste the text, but no citation.  :wacko:

Can you provide a specific example of what you are attempting to cite? We're due to add support for some new releases, otherwise it should work.

Are you having trouble copying a text or a tool?

 

If it is a tool, check your Preferences>Bibliography to see if you have "Insert citation as footnote" selected.

Well, what can I say?  Now it is working!  Didn't change any settings, just simply copied Bible text and Tool text and when pasting them into Word along came the footnote citations.  Last time I tried... nothing.  And I did have "Insert citation as footnote" already selected.

 

Anyway, thanks for responding!

 

Steve
