Mike Binks:
You may well be right Hugh but perhaps changing the Keyboard shortcut to Cmd+Option+Ctl+E for 'Replace with Passage' in the Services menu as Livi has suggested might help a little.

To make life easy I changed it to Ctl+. using 2 keys is much quicker and easier than using 4 keys.

The beauty of InstaVerse wasn't, IMO, the ability to paste a reference in to a document - it was its ability to pop-up a scripture text in a preferred translation as you read virtually any webpage. 

From the developer:

"InstaVerse recognizes scripture abbreviations like "Jn 3:16" in web pages and email documents, and if you point at an abbreviation with your mouse, it pops up the Bible text for that reference."

IOW, as you read along in any webpage and you come to a biblical reference, say, "John 3:16",  instead of having to open another program, or website, or search engine to find out what the text of "John 3:16" says, you simply hover the cursor over the reference and up pops a window with the text in it. No coding required as in RefTagger - just any plain biblical reference.

Simple, easy-peasy, uncomplicated, worked like a champ.  Began to break down when Windows 8 came along (or was it 64 bit Windows? who knows?). 

HERE are three screenshots that give an idea of how it worked (click on the screenshot icon(s) to open them up for viewing).

Point is that WS just gave up on a fantastically useful little utility - is anybody at FL/Logos listening?

JRS has left the building.

Actually JRS they gave up 2. Instaverse and Lesson Maker. I also hope Faithlife is listening.

I would agree. Instaverse was my most used button. A brilliant option,

Two Years ago I spent over a week trying to find something that replaced instaVerse in that you could put your cursor at the end of a verse and press a command and it would automatically paste the scriptures.  

I reached out to customer support at Faithlife / Logos  and was essentially told if I recall correctly that they would consider updating or re-releasing. 

My Pastor still uses Windows XP Just for InstaVerse.   

I'm on a Mac and have been looking for something similar without having to load a large program just for this functionality.   

The closest I've come to on Mac is Alfred with the PowerPack purchase and the ESV script found here:    This lets me hit Control Space and type in ESV and the passage or passages and it'll copy the verses to my clipboard.  You can also go into the settings for Alfred and Workflows and double click on the clipboard action within the ESV workflow and set it to paste so you'd just put your cursor where you want it and hit Control Spacebar and type ESV and the verse and it'll automatically paste it wherever you are.

Still hoping InstaVerse comes back however and becomes cross platform.

I know I'm late to the party so to speak... but... InstaVerse is not something I used much at all... I tried it out and did use it a time or two... here and there... but not regularly. And if I remember right, many used it like I did (not much). 

On the other hand..... ZipScript... I use it all the time, even today. I will truly be feel the pain if ZipScript stops working. I use it in many things in Logos, MS Word, Excel, Emails and just about any place  whereby I want to enter a biblical passage.

I pray FaithLife will see fit to make ZipScript work with Logos Bibles or just the NKJV!!! Wink
