Hypertext Links

In many Accordance Tools, User Tools, or User Notes files, you'll find a series of hypertextable Scripture links. This is most notable in the new Cross-References module (included in any level of the Library 6). Here's an example from Genesis 1:1:

 

Genesis 1:1:

Gen. 2:1; Ex. 20:11, 31:18; 2Kings 19:15; 1Chr. 16:26, 29:11; 2Chr. 2:12, 9:1; Neh. 9:6; Job 26:13, 38:4; Psa. 8:3, 33:6-9, 89:11-12, 96:5, 102:25, 104:24-30, 115:15, 121:2, 124:8, 134:3, 136:5, 146:6, 148:4-5; Prov. 3:19, 8:22-30, 16:4; Eccl. 12:1; Is. 37:16, 40:26-28, 42:5, 44:24, 45:18, 51:13-16, 65:17; Jer. 10:12, 32:17, 51:15; Zech. 12:1; Matt. 11:25; Mark 13:19; John 1:1-3; Acts 4:24, 14:15, 17:24; Rom. 1:19-20, 11:36; 1Cor. 8:6; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:16-17; Heb. 1:2-10, 3:4, 11:3; 2Pet. 3:5; 1John 1:1; Rev. 3:14, 4:11, 10:6, 14:7, 21:6, 22:13

 

That's a lot of individual hypertext links, and if you were to click on each one separately, it would take you all day to read through them all. But you know we would never do that to you, don't you?

 

To hypertext to more than one link at a time, simply drag a selection across the references you want to see. A text window (or tab) will appear displaying all the references you selected.

 

Now, for this to work, you need to START and END your selection IN THE MIDDLE of the first and last references. For example, if you want to view all the links above, you would need to start your selection somewhere after the "G" in "Gen. 2:1" and finish it somewhere before the "3" in Revelation "22:13." If you start your selection before "Gen. 2:1" or finish it after "22:13," Accordance assumes you just want to select the text. But if you start and end your selection within the hypertext links, Accordance realizes you want to hypertext to all the references selected.

In another bible program that I have on my windows computer, when I copy and paste a biblical reference into a User note, it appears in the text of the user note as a hypertext (eg Gen.1:1). Please add this feature to Accordance.

Thanks for the reminder of this powerful module. When you drag across them all, they of course can be exported for use in lessons and ministry. The ability to quickly glance across related content in cross references helps you move further into the text itself.
