The iOS app thankfully punctuates the abbreviated Bible reference when copying a verse (example: "Rev. 20:1"), but the full app doesn't do so when copying citations (example: "Rev 20:1"), so I have to continually add punctuation. An option to add punctuation to abbreviations would be helpful.

I use the European verse notation (in contrast to the SBL standard abbreviations) but it's the same thing here as well. For example, "Gen. 1,3" becomes "Gen 1,3" when copied as citation.

ATTENTION: My bug reports are all with the GERMAN INTERFACE and with the EUROPEAN NOTATION! It can be the English interface has no bugs, I describe.

Bring more international Bibles to the store,
fix my reported bugs, even the old ones which never was addressed,
develop my feature requests, the new once and the once I made years ago,
in nearer future.
