Unable to copy/paste text from Cross-References Info Pane

Hello,

I'm running Accordance 13.0.4 on MacOS 10.14.6 and I'm having the following problem (see screenshot): I'm unable to copy verses in the "Cross-References" section of the Info Pane so that I can paste them into other resources (i.e. My Notes, Microsoft Word, etc). At one point, I recall being able to do this, but no longer. Instead, whenever I begin to copy verses using my mouse, a separate "tab" or "pane" opens up with those verses instead of letting me highlight them to copy/paste.

 

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong, or if this is even possible?

If you select the dresses in the "Cross-References" section of the info pane it will create a new text pane with those verses. You can then highlight a verse go to edit, click on selected all the then "copy as". You can then paste the verse as you like. Here is a screen shot of the last step.

Hi John, thanks for the quick reply! I apologize for not making myself clearer; I only want to copy the verse references (i.e. "Isa. 1:6") that are given, not the text of the verse. If Cross-References gives multiple verse references for a passage I'm reading, I want to be able to easily & quickly copy those into my personal notes.

Unfortunately no, especially if I'm wanting to copy a dozen or more references quickly. See screenshot for example.

You have two options here:

 

1) You can do what John was suggesting.  Open the desired cross-references, then select and Copy As References whichever verses you like from the Text tab that opened up.

 

2) Instead of, or in addition to, using the Info pane, open a parallel pane with your Cross Reference tool (looks to be Treasury of Scripture Knowledge), which you can easily copy and paste out of, and will stay in sync with your other panes.

Option #2 works for me; thanks for the help Joel.

I'm posting here because it seems related. 

 

I Live Click for Word Usage but in the "Copy As" menu, "References" is greyed out. I can simply click "Open" to see the references in their source text, and then Copy As References, but why not save users the extra step and allow "Copy As References" directly from Live Click/Research results?
