Greetings. I'm brand new to Accordance (and Logos too) and loving it so far! But one of the reasons I was excited about Accordance was the "copy as citation" feature that allows copying a citation into a document, simultaneously making a footnote. Of note, I'm using MacOS 10.13.6 and Word for Mac 16.23.

 

Here's what I've done:

  1. Enabled my citation options in "preferences"
  2. Checked "insert citation as footnote" under the bibliography tab in preferences
  3. Copied the text I want to insert using "copy as citation" (CTRL-Command-C on Mac)
  4. Pasted the text into word (tried pasting regularly and formatted). I get the citation copied into the main body as it should, but no footnote. :unsure:

I've tried everything I could think of, but it's not working. I am not getting a footnote in Word (or in Scrivener). This does work in Logos but it's pretty clunky there and takes a bunch of extra steps. Copy as bibliography also isn't creating the footnote. Looking at that seems like an older reference here, this seems like it should be doable (copied a screenshot below of the old Accordance page):

Is this a bug? Anything I'm missing? Thanks and God Bless!

This is working for me from a Tool but not from a Text module. I think it's deliberate, that verse references are intended to follow the text rather than be placed in a footnote.

 

You do, of course have several Formats available in the Bibliography preferences, top pop-up menu.

Thanks for the help! This may be an issue right there - I'm not sure what "module" means here. I'm using this screen:

Ah, right. "Copy as Citation" from a bible text is not going provide footnotes. That only works from anything that's not a Bible (commentary, dictionary, journal, etc.).

Thank you so much! And that makes a ton of sense. I was just testing out the tool on basically the first thing I had open which was a Bible. But just tried a commentary and it works beautifully! Thanks again everyone!!
