I would like to make my own Copy Bible Verse format to do the following:

  • Verse reference after the verse
  • Verse reference with a compact 3-letter format (e.g. 2Sa, 1Ti, Mat)
  • Verse numbers in brackets, or superscript
  • No verse number for the first verse (the verse number is obvious from the reference at the end)

Why? Because it is a compact style, and I am used to that layout after using e-Sword (which had multiple verse copying layouts)

Is there a guide to the keywords or code examples for the Copy Bible Verses Tool? For example, since there is a keyword "FullPassageRef", does this mean there is something like "CompactPassageRef" available? Since there is a keyword "ForEachVerse", does this mean there are other keywords like "ForFirstVerse"?

This is my progress so far, which just puts the reference at the end:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=ForEachVerse
<b>[VerseNum]</b> [VerseText]

=Footer
 <b>[FullPassageRef] ([Version]) </p>

Hi, and welcome to the forums!

First, here's a page detailing the syntax for CBV: https://wiki.logos.com/Copy_Bible_Verses#Copy_Bible_Verses_Syntax 

Yes, there's a compact reference code: [ShortVerseRef]

The code [VerseNumInContext] should take care of the number on the first verse.

I got this:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=ForEachVerse
<b>[VerseNumInContext]</b> [VerseText]

=Footer
<b>[ShortPassageRef] ([Version]) </p>

SharingTheGospel:
Verse numbers in brackets, or superscript

Here it is with verse numbers in brackets:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=ForEachVerse
[<b>[VerseNumInContext]</b>] [VerseText]

=Footer
<b>[ShortPassageRef] ([Version]) </p>

And then with superscript:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=ForEachVerse
<sup>[VerseNumInContext]</sup> [VerseText]

=Footer
<b>[ShortPassageRef] ([Version]) </p>

Hope this helps!

Can we change the font?

Joe Mayden:

Can we change the font?

That would have to do with the style codes:

%HeaderStyle = My Style Name Word style for header
%ForEachVerseStyle = My Style Name Word style for verse
%FooterStyle = My Style Name Word style for footer
%FootnoteStyle = My Style Name Word style for all footnotes, including citations
%CitationStyle = My Style Name Word style for citation footnotes

I don't use Word, however, so I've never used these.

Thanks Levi, this is exactly what I was hoping for! I should have searched for "syntax" rather than "keywords" and "code". Perfecto!
