When copying a section (clipboard) from a book, eg a commentary, etc, it used to bring the reference AND the page number(s). 

Now when I copy I only get the reference, and have to manually turn on page numbers in the view, then manually find the correct page #. First world problem I know, but we used to have it, and it has gone. I also cannot find any way to reenable in the copying or referencing preferences.

Help? Is it gone? If so, can we please have it back at least as an option? As a student who references all the time (this has to be a lot of us), page numbers are essential when they exist.

Thanks!

What commentary are you copying text from? What is your preferred citation format?

Citation format is harvard (works for my bibliography perfectly). I tried about 10 different commentaries that definitely have page numbers (when turned on in the view, the numbers are there)

eg, When you replied I was reading the new american commentary on Deuteronomy - you can see the page number in the copy here as it is inline in the text now, but it is not in the reference.

sovereignty of a god, but to serve is to express commitment to that sovereignty in a practical, tangible way. Israel had been redeemed from bondage or service in Egypt in order p 148 to serve Yahweh. To serve other gods, then, was to reverse the exodus and go back under bondage, thus betraying the grace

Ok - your reply gave the hint. I changed it to Chicago manual of style, and the reference is there. (below). Can i change the harvard style to have the pages?

I may be wrong but doesn't the Harvard citation style put the page number in the inline note rather than the end note citation?
