  • Accordance Version:10.x

There is currently only one reason why I still have the Logos & Olive Tree Bible Study apps on my iPhone. When I copy and paste text from any bible translation the verse numbers never carry over with Accordance.

Could there please be a setting to allow for this? Perhaps there could be an option to paste with verse numbers inline and another option to paste each verse on a separate line.

This, I gather, is a relatively straight forward bit of programming, but would have a profound effect on its interactability with other apps.

Hi Andy,

what exactly do you mean? I get verse numbers when I copy and paste...

 

e.g..

 

"Gen. 1:2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. 

Gen. 1:3 ¶ And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. "

 

copied straight out of my iOS app.

Thanks for raising this subject. However, my problem is the opposite. I like having a full reference at the start or end of a Scripture citation, but I don't like the repeated "Gen 1:2...Gen 1:3...etc throughout. If I'm using it for printing off or for reading out or for screen presentation, I need to go through the passage to remove each individual verse reference or replace them with simple numbers, as it looks in a normal Bible.

Ah yes, so this (copy as citation) is available on the desktop app only at the moment. I don’t know if there are plans to implement this into v2. Someone else will need to comment on that.

I would definitely like the ability to copy the citation format.  I keep a copy of PocketBible on my phone for the same reason Andy keeps Logos and Olive Tree.

We will have to look into adding this in a future release, but I agree, it's something we need to iOS.

 

Thanks for the feedback,

This would be super helpful and definitely increase my use of the iOS app.
