In Libronix Copy Bible Verses allowed for multiple verses from various texts to be copied and pasted. This does not seem to be the case in Logos4 -- For instance in attempting to copy and paste 1 Cor. 13:1-3 and 8-13 I had to copy verses 1-3 and then copy verses 8-13 in separate sessions of the CBV in Logos4. What am I missing.

Also, why do I need to click on the reference for the verses I type into the CBV window?  If I want to copy 1 Cor 13:1-3, I must enter the text in the CBV window, then click on the verses that appear in a highlighted window or it will move back to whatever the active bible window is set at.  Not very helpful at all.

I just did this by typing 1Cor 13:1–3, 8–13 in the CBV command bar. I hit enter and I'm good to go.

To change this behavior: in the CBV open the panel on the left and at the link set choose "None" (the default is "Follow" which does what you're describing). Logos assumes that if you're at a certain place in your Bible and want to copy a text, it's probably the text you're looking at.

The "Follow" was my problem (Just gotta love these undocumented features) and the reason it wouldn't accept multiple verse sets -- turned it to "none" and it does it easily now!

Thanks for the quick help.

For the Wiki page you may want to add CTRL+ALT+B opens the Copy Bible Verse dialogue in your Windows application.

Thanks for doing this, Steve.

BTW, typing semi-colons between non-contiguous passages also works. This is the convention for doing so, when introducing a new book or chapter, as in Acts 2:42; 6:4; 1Tim 4:16. You may want to include that in the Wiki as well (I don't really have time to edit there right now).
