Hi all

I noticed that ALL Bible Spanish versions using the Copy Bible Verse Tool uses a period (.) instead of a colon (:) between the Chapter and the Verse. i.e

Génesis 1.1 En el principio creó Dios los cielos y la tierra. 

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 

However, Spanish bibles quote passages using a colon between the chapter and verse, not a period. 

This is really annoying since I want my quoted verses to have a colon instead of a period. I looked all Replacement Token references but I dont find any option or style to make it work. The interest thing is that this style affect ALL and Spanish bibles, none in English

Thank you for your Reply. God bless you all in these trouble times

That is annoying and I don't know why the software presents it that way

You can configure a style to do what you want:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=ForEachVerse
<p>[ChapterNum]:[VerseNum] [VerseText]</p>

Thank you Dave

As much as I tried I wasn't able to create the style that I wanted but I appreciate your suggestions. I wonder why in the world all Spanish bibles have this format, a period instead of a colon between chapter and verse. 

God bless you richly
