When you add a note to a word in a Bible verse, there are two ways you can do it. If you right click on the word, you get the following dialog:

 

If you select the word first, and then right click on the selection, you get the following dialog:

 

Can you see any difference in these dialogs? They seem to be doing the same thing, however, if you click Add a note to "My Notes" in each dialog, you get two different results. For the first one, where you have just right clicked on a word, the note becomes:

 

For the second one, when you have selected the word before right clicking on it, it becomes:

 

Is there a reason for the difference in the way this is handled?

Interesting, the first example adds a note the verse without selecting reference in the right click menu. I tried this and noticed that the yellow box appeared in multiple Bibles. The second way actually attaches the note to the specific word in a specific version.

On one hand #1 allows you to make cross-bible references with fewer clicks, but on the other it is inconsistent with the UI...

I've complained about his before too.  It's confusing.  I recall Bob saying they are considering changing the behaviour.

If there was no selection, doesn't it make sense that you aren't offered "selection" as an option? Therefore it isn't labeled or applied as a selection but rather is treated as a reference?  And in testing this, I found another bug. Thanks.

But you are offered selection as an option as the top image shows. That's one of the things that causes the confusion.
