Something that would be a huge help for citations / footnoting is not having to hunt down isbn numbers and so forth.

 

For example, if I want to reference something in Tyndale's Commentary, I need to scroll to the top of the relevant volume to read the fine print. 

 

Choosing "About this text.." does not list it, nor the volume currently in scope.

Selecting some text and selecting "Copy as bibliography" does nothing  :huh: .

Just as confusingly, selecting "Copy as citation" merely copies the highlighted text...

 

I would like to cite the portion in a footnote which ordinarily requires a reference to its location in the text, not just the text itself.

 

So, something that would be a huge help (i.e., time saver) would be to be able to look up valid / official information for citation purposes, and thereby be able to refer to the actual book from which the Accordance resource is derived.

 

The nice thing about worldcat, then, is that people could export the bibliographic information relevant for their footnoting manager (be it Zotoro, EndNote, etc). I don't know if you're able to provide to world cat further references not listed.

 

Thoughts?

I think this is partially addressed by changing your Bibliography preference (as noted in the other topic you started). 

 

Next, we have thought to support exporting data that could be imported into Bibliographic Citation software, but as of now it is not supported and I do not know any kind of timeline on whether it might be in the future.
