In L4 to copy Bible verses, I enter the verse(s) in the Copy Bible Verses window, then must click the Go arrow or hit Enter to make the verse(s) active, then click Copy or Copy and Paste.

In L3, I could enter the verse(s), then hit Enter and my entry was Pasted into my word processor.

As I write studies, I'm very frequently inserting verses so those extra key/mouse actions take considerable time in a day's writing . . . so, is there a way to have L4 Paste with less steps.

Thanks in advance for any insight or assistance,

Jerry

If you want to avoid the mouse clicks, you can use the keyboard shortcuts, Alt+C or Alt+P, for Copy or Copy & Paste, respectively.

In 4.0b (which is still in beta), there is also a new global shortcut command, Alt+Ctrl+B which will bring up Copy Bible Verses from within your Word Processor.

One thing you can do to perhaps speed yourself up is that when the copy bible verses window is open, simply highlight the text in your Bible and the text automatically shows up in the tool.  Then it's just one click to copy and paste it.

And if you only want to copy one verse, all you need is for that verse to be the active verse (as displayed in the navigation box) in an active Bible window. I notice that CBV doesn't change the version using either your method or mine, but it does change the verse to be copied.

It would VERY NICE if we could Alt-P worked without first having to bring up Copy Bible Verses.  Right now we have to type Ctrl-Alt-B then Alt-P to copy & paste.  I would like to do this in with a single shortcut.
