    Default Need to copy verse text without cross-reference letters

    I often will use a Ctl-C or a right-click Copy to copy verse text from the browse window to paste into a Word document. The problem is that with several versions, particularly the NAU and the ESV, it copies the superscript cross-reference letters. Of course Word doesn't recognize these and gives me a spelling error, and I don't need them anyway. I haven't been able to figure out how to copy without getting them. Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to turn off the notes, called sometimes version notes, sometimes translator notes, in the Browse Window. The little superscript letters and numbers will then not display in the Browse Window, and will not be copied.
    Three ways to toggle them on and off:
    1. Click with you mouse in the browse window, and press "n".
    2. Click on the "hamburger" (3 horizontal bars) button at the top right corner of the Browse Window to display "Browse Window Options". Click on "Toggle Version Notes"
    3. In the Main Window Status Bar, at the bottom of the BW window, if it is displayed, double click on "Tr Notes".

    If you need to copy verse text without reference letters, take a look at the format of the text. If it is in verse form, then the key is to copy the first letter of each line. If it is not verse form but some other type of pattern such as stanzas or rhyme scheme, then copy the first letter of each line and any other letters that are part of those lines. If there are no letters in the text that are part of those lines, then use the letter-fill feature available in Word or Google Docs to add them in. Having this done will make your life easier because you can now navigate through the document with ease knowing that you have all of your references right at your fingertips.One more thing to keep in mind when copying text is to be sure not to change any spacing or formatting, including font size and color. You donít want to accidentally change the way a line looks because something in there may have been important enough for you to include in the copied text. quordle
