When I hover mouse cursor over the linked verses in my user notes, Instant Details show wrong verses in the Latvian Bible. For example, in my user notes I make a link to Ps 77:11. In English Bibles v. 11 is what in Latvian Bible is v. 12. When I press Command key, it shows correct NRSV verse. Problem is that many Psalms in the Latvian Bible have one verse off-set. Many English Bibles have verse 0, Latvian Bible starts immediately with verse 1, thus all verses are one number off. Highlights are shown correctly, probably because application just counts verses from the beginning of the particular chapter. But Instant Details show exact verse number, and here I have problem. How to solve it? Should application use some internal verse translation table? I don' know. 


“Teach the way of God in Accordance” (Matt 12:14, NIV-Accordance edition)
“Those who live in Accordance (with the Spirit) have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” (Rom 8:5, NIV-Accordance edition)

User Notes link whatever verse is labeled there - if you write Ps 77:11, it will open that specific number combination in your requested translation.  I don't believe there is any way to say "Ps 77:11 in NRSV but Ps 77:12 in Latvian".  Generally references are designed for a particular translation, and the support of two texts via the Command key is sort of a bonus.
