When I have a Reference Tool in the secondary (lower or right) pane, I'm getting URLs with locators that don't work. For example, open a Bible to Luke 10:37 and open ACCS in the secondary pane. The new Copy As… Location URL feature works fine, and gives the correct URL, using a paragraph number as a locator: https://accordance.b...Complete#113136. On the other hand, the Share Sheet and Report Correction get a different URL (as follows), which tries to use the run-in title for the paragraph as a locator, and this doesn't work: https://accordance.b...Be_Our_Neighbor

 

With most reference tools I've tried, the incorrect URL (Share or Report Correction) tries to use the verse reference as a locator, which seems more likely to work, but doesn't: the tool opens to the beginning instead of the commentary on the verse. The incorrect URL in this case is https://accordance.b...#Luke_10.36,_37

 

Also in this case, the new Copy As… Location URL functionality gives a correct URL using the paragraph number as a locator: https://accordance.b...ead/ICC-NT#8437

 

This isn't a new bug, but so far I've only mentioned it in the thread on copying a Markdown link. It worries me particularly as regards corrections. Until recently, I thought these links would work, and I worry that some of the corrections I've submitted won't be usable because the bad location URL will make it too hard to find the error.

 

This is with version 3.0.2 of the Accordance iOS app, but I remember bad URLs like this from before 3.0.
