One of the most common and important ways I use Accordance is to export text into either word processing (Pages or Word) or presentation (Keynote or PowerPoint) documents.  I would love to see the capabilities for this feature to receive some much needed attention, and have asked for this before.  One particular feature I would love to see is to allow us to select any color available on our platform for export, rather than just a few preselected ones.  This is very important when preparing presentations in Keynote, since the colors used for text are often not a preset color (since a specific color will display better on projection screens).  Would it be possible to allow us to select/create any color like in other Mac software?

 

 

In Christ,

When I paste into Keynote and other programs over placeholder text, I always "paste and match style" (keystroke: command-option-shift-v). This always matches font and color automatically.

Rick, I know that can be done, but then I lose the superscripts.  What I am suggesting allows me to set how I want the text to appear in Accordance so that it carries in superscripts, fonts, and colors.  And to be honest, it is easier to paste into Keynote with the superscripts properly maintained, then select all text and select the right color than it is to get the right color but have to select every verse reference and superscript them.  But what would really be preferable is to set the color in Accordance, then when the text is pasted it is exactly as I want it.

 

In Christ,
