I'm having this exact same issue when I paste. This happened at the exact same time I upgraded to Accordance 12. When I paste special without formatting, it's fine. It looks like one of the pieces of text tells word to put a lot of space after it (rending the rest of the text invisible—it's so far off the screen. I'm attaching a picture so you can see). 

Would love an update to fix this problem.

Would love an update with a fix also.  Haven't experienced this issue pasting from any other programs into word - only Accordance 12.

Having just tried this out on the ESVS and Enhanced NIV I get the same problem. However It seems to work OK if you do the following:

Copy as citation

Copy as bibliography

Copy as references


It does not work for standard copy or copy as no superscript. It seems to be something to do with the superscripts. I generally have the references a smaller size than the text and that also causes an issue.


If I copy a selection of text which has no superscripts then the copy works OK. If I have the references the same size as the text then again the issue will not happen (as long as there are no superscripts in the selection I'm copying).
