View Full Version : Copying a range of verses <Weird>

07-12-2004, 03:24 PM
I just found out that BW does not support copying more than one reference at a time (Tools, Copy Center, range of verses, BW editor)--OK.

BW does, of course, support copying a single reference, ie <John 3:16-25>

BUT, amazingly enough, I am usually able to copy multiple references in a single pass such as whole lectionary selections to either the editor or a word processor using selections such as
<Acts 4:32-35; Psalm 133; 1 John 1; 1 John 2:1-2; John 20:19-31> or
<Amos 7:7-17; Psalm 82; Colossians 1:1-14; Luke 10:25-37> or
<Jeremiah 2:4-13; Psalm 81:1; Hebrews 13:1-8; Luke 14:1-14>

BUT, Israel at BW is not able to duplicate my success at copying multiple references in one pass.

We are both using the most current 6 .... r version although I remember doing it with BW5. I am currently using WinXP.

Thoughts? Does anyone else use this unsupported feature?

I had never tried this before.

I typed in: 2Pe 2:22; 1pe 1:5; Joh 3:16-19; Psa 2 2, in the vs range and copied all the verses into a MSword document.

They showed up all in one single paragraph.

I am using xp as well, and I believe the latest version of bw's.

I am using a similar setup (WinXP and BW6 version r) and had no problems to copy multiple references to the Editor. It did run all the references together so I had to insert a RETURN to separate them, but otherwise it was fine.

I know you were seeking for a solution to someone else's problem, but as a newbie with BW I think this "feature" is a great help for copying multiple sections.

Thanks Al and Clinton; I don't feel so alone now :) :)

Now it doesn't seem to work for everyone (ie Israel at BW central) and we don't know why.

So let's hear from those who cannot make it work--and the error messages you get.
