Using the Copy Bible Verse pane, and selecting "Quotation" is what I recommend for my students to use, since it is close to MLA format.  However, is there a way to place the final punctuation after the parenthetic reference to match MLA better?  Or perhaps two formatting options for MLA Inline Quote and MLA Block Quote could be created?  I haven't tried creating a custom format as I'm not sure what all that stuff means - give me some Hebrew and I'm OK, computer code I'm lost Wink

Hi Doug

Not sure exactly what you mean.

Below is a screen shot generated using the Quotation style (on Windows but I think this is the same on Mac)

Do you want the final closing double quotes moved to the end or something else?

Doug,

The period here is technically part of the text of the verse. We could add a period after (Reference, Version) but you and your students would still have to go and delete the final punctuation mark from the verse being quoted.

Here is the code to do it

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=Header
<p>“<i>

=ForEachVerse
[VerseText]

=Footer
</i>” ([FullPassageRef], [Version]).</p>
