It would be very efficient to be able to right mouse on scripture references in notes and find a "set as anchor" option.

I usually write the notes and then after proofing, go back and enter all the anchors. Lot of back and forthing. Right mouse option would be tremendous.

I don't have L8 so I really don't know what this means exactly, but I'm a huge advocate for right mouse options. L3 made tons of important options immediately actionable with the right mouse click...things which take 3-8 or more clicks in all subsequent versions. Make more use of the right mouse!

When you write a note in L8 and add a scripture reference it automatically hyperlinks it to that verse. Then you have to go to anchors, and hit "add" then write in the verse, when you do that the verse populates in a drop down box at which time you click that, then hid "add". Then finally, you have your anchor.

My suggestion is after you have added your scripture verse reference and it auto-links, it would be great to be able to Right Mouse over the link and have and "add anchor" option and cut out all those other steps.

In ≤L7 lingo, this would be "add attachment point". I think this is a great idea, but how about also adding an option for "All Recognized References" in the Add Anchor dialog which would add an anchor for all references that have been recognized in the content area of the note?!

Here's a mockup of what I was envisioning. The section could expand/collapse (that should "stick") and individual references could be selected/deselected before adding the anchors:
