    Default Unable to copy DSS references

    How come when I select the "Copy Verse List (no Text)" option, I get the list of references below instead of the correct ones? The problem can also be seen in the screenshot below. I am trying to get a list of all of the DSS references without the text.
    CD 7:14, 16
    A00 12:7-CD 12:8, 14
    A05 , 6
    A06 , 4, 6, 20
    A09 1:2, 4
    A99 6:7, 11, 21
    B69 1:4, 6
    C27 , 15, 20
    D47 , 10
    D75 1:8, 13
    D90 2:7-CD 2:8, 14
    D90 1:4, 6, 8, 14, 18, 29, 32, 35, 39, 47
    D93 13:3, 5, 7
    D95 14:3, 7
    D95 19:3, 8
    D95 , 11, 13
    D95 , 9, 11
    D95 7:6, 9, 11
    E20 1:6, 9
    E26 2:2, 4, 6
    F27 7:5, 11
    F28 1:2, 7
    F32 5:2, 4
    G75 6:3, 7
    G75 , 7, 13

    I was able to replicate your result (not all items were identical, but close).
    QST/QSM is different from other BW versions. One difference is that it doesn't follow the normal rules for naming books and chapters. Normally book names must be 3 characters, and chapter numbers must be consecutive integers (1, 2, 3, ...). I would guess that this confuses the "Copy Verse List (no Text)" feature of BW.

    I got what appears to be correct results by altering the copy options:
    Choose the "Copy" dropdown button below the command line / Copy Format Options / for Verse List (no text)"
    Check "Add a new line after each reference."
    Uncheck "Merge consecutive references."
    Check "Remove frequency data from the list."
    (see screen shots below)

    This gives a longer list, with one line/row for each verse found, but it seems to be accurate.
    Any deviation among these 3 boxes gave me wrong results.

    I'm assuming you did a search for מלך in the QSM. I get the same results as you do.
    When I right click in the search window results and choose "Copy Verse List (No Text)" I get all the correct references listed.
    That's strange output you have... (After CD going to A... B... C.. D...)

    I am not sure what to suggest.
    Check your BW Options Window > Output Format Opitions > Verse List (no text)
    See what you have there. It will preview what the output will look like.

    UPDATE: I just posted at the same time as Jim did, and he identified the issue.
    You can try other combinations. If you uncheck "Add a new line..." and do check "Merge consecutive references" you will get the correct output too.
    I.e., there is something with the Qumran texts listing that gets mixed up when both the "Add a new line" and "Merge consecutive..." are checked.

    Mark, when I tried the other combinations they didn't work for me. They looked much better than the original list, but on more careful examination had some errors in the result lists.
