Hi Tes

If you open the "Power Lookup" tool when you have the verse highlighted you will get all of the cross-references listed there:

If you click on the top one and then click on the bottom one while holding the shift-key down all of the verses will be selected.

You can then use the Copy function to copy them to the clipboard.

You can then open a new Passage List, select the "Add ... clpiboard" function and the references will get pasted into the Passage List.

The problem with this is that they will get entered twice as there are more than one references to each verse in the Power Lookup Pane. But it's not difficult to delete the entries you don't want.

I can't, at the moment, think of any easier way of doing this.

Actually there's a slightly easier way. You don't have to go via the clipboard. Once you have highlighted the text, as described by Graham, you can open a new or already existing Passage list and just select the "Add ... selected text".

You will still end up with double instances but provided your passage list is sorted it's quite quick to delete the doubles.

Or, if you find it easier: once the text is selected in the Power Look up-window you can just click it, drag it and drop it on top of an existing Passage List. That will add all the references to the PL. Pretty amazing, if you ask me.

Hi Tes

I have just tried this - selecting the text in power lookup and "Add from selected text" in the Passage List and it doesn't work here either.

Does the method I outlined initially work for you - selecting the text in power lookup, pressing the Copy button and then "add from clipboard" in the Passage List?

EDIT: Looking into this a bit further, the wiki guide on Passage Lists (http://wiki.logos.com/Passage_List) says - regarding the copy selected text option - "Select a block of text in a resource that has multiple references. Click Add >... selected text. This will add the references cited in the selected text."

It may be that it isn't designed to pick up selected text from tools such as  Power Lookup but just resources.
