Hi,

Hope someone can help me.

I am working on a Copy Scripture style and can' seem to get  a break in there right.

I want it to look like this:

Colossians 4:14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
15 Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church that is in his house. 16 Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.”
18 This salutation by my own hand—Paul. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.(NKJV)


BUT what I am getting is this:

Colossians 4:14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.

15 Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church that is in his house. 16 Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea. 17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.” 18 This salutation by my own hand—Paul. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.(NKJV)

Notice I aam wanting eac versee to start on a different linebut it is nott working that way.

Anyone know what I can do to get this:

Colossians 4:14 Luke the beloved physician and Demas greet you.
15 Greet the brethren who are in Laodicea, and Nymphas and the church that is in his house. 16 Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.
17 And say to Archippus, “Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.”
18 This salutation by my own hand—Paul. Remember my chains. Grace be with you. Amen.(NKJV)

Thanks for any help you can give.

You can use a </p> (or any valid close bracket) on it's own rather than a <p> it seems, and it sort of works like a break. This helps with the double line a <p> </p> gives.

However that will still need to be in the =ForEachVerse section, so that will drop down either the first verse if at the top, or drop the version down a line if placed at the end, which is what I have pasted below.

Best I can think possible unless undocumented options/tokens, such as %AppendLastVerse. Maybe someone else has some idea.

=Header
[FullBookName] [ChapterNum]:
=ForEachVerse
[VerseNum] [VerseText]
</p>
=Footer([Version])

If you choose "Lines", on the copy verses options "Styled", "Lines", "Text Only", I believe you will get what you are looking for.

Thanks Kevin,

That works great!

But one thing...  how do you get rid of the superscript number for footnotes?

Where do you put this?

%NoFootnotes

thanks

%NoCharFormatting
%NoParFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes 
%NoCitation

It just posts above the other section.

Yeap that got it Kevin for the footnotes.


And like you say, if I could somehow get the Version to append to the last line it would be "perfect."

But I can work with it a lot better than it was before.

THANKS

Leon

well I learned something new about custom styles.  Sorry for my lame response.  I did not know about styles until now.

No problem, I gave the lines selection for custome styles and it did not quite give me what I was looking for.

But hey, the only way we learn is to jump in and give it a try.

So thanks for your response!
