View Full Version : Pasting Libronix citations into Bibleworks

Hi,
I had the Word Biblical Commentary series on Libronix, and when I copy and past sections out of it into word, it has the useful feature of adding a citation (as a footnote) in Tuberian format (or a choice of other formats).
The problem I have is that when I try pasting it into the editor in BW, the citation doesn't paste into it.
I've emailed tech support, but thought I should see if anyone here has found a solution to this.
Thanks
Dunk

I use a great little utility called PureText (http://www.stevemiller.net/puretext) which will cure the problem. When you hit <windowskey>+V it converts the clipboard to plain text and simply removes all formatting. When that happens the citation remains as plain text after your quote.
Quite handy that one.

Thanks for that,
The download link wasn't working when I tried to download it, so I'll try it later.
It looks like a handy tool, although I imagine that it will loose any greek fonts used. I've also been experiementing with pasting into notepad, and paste special into wordpad before I then copy and paste into BW.

It's funny how this seems time consuming when it's still so much faster than reading from a book and typing into the computer, or even scanning a book in and then correcting all of the mistaken letters!

Hi Dave,
Good to hear from you,
We're a very small urban church plant in London, but God has been very good to us.

B.T.W I went on your site and saw a link to Alpha Omega ministries - I believe that James White is a Bibleworks user too, I read once that he uses it in all his debates.

Peace
