I open user tool Year A and select the following passges:

 

Exodus 33:12-23
Psalm 99
1 Thessalonians 1:1-10
Matthew 22:15-22
Isaiah 45:1-7
Psalm 96:1-13  Psalm 96:1-9, (10-13)

 

I copy and paste them in Accordance search field. Now they look like this:

 

Exodus 33:12-23;Psalm 99;1 Thessalonians 1:1-10;Matthew 22:15-22;Isaiah 45:1-7;Psalm 96:1-13  Psalm 96:1-9, (10-13)

 

OK, application can search (although there is two syntax errors), but for a human being it would be nice to have spaces after the semicolons. Like this:

 

Exodus 33:12-23; Psalm 99; 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10; Matthew 22:15-22; Isaiah 45:1-7; Psalm 96:1-13; Psalm 96:1-9, 10-13

 

Could Accordance help poor humans a little bit here and add empty spaces for them?

In a paragraph that has multiple verse reference, you can shift-click on a reference to open all of them. Maybe the way to do this would be to add the ability in a future update to highlight multiple references and shift-click to open them all at once in another window.

It’s not so much about opening multiple Bible references as it is about human readability of the Bible references which are already in the search field.

“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)
