if I Right Click highlighted Bible Text and select copy from the right click menu the subsequent paste does not work for me. I am on a Mac running Mojave on one machine and Laptop running High Sierra. I am able to use command C and command V as a work around.

It does work for other resources besides a bible.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I'm not on a Mac so I can't speak to that, but it is working on Windows.

Then Moses said to the people, “Remember this day when you came out of Egypt, out of the place of slavery, for the Lord brought you out of here by the strength of his hand. Nothing leavened may be eaten.r Today, in the month of Abib,D,s you are going out.

r Ex 6:1; 12:8,42; Dt 16:3

D March–April; called Nisan in the post-exilic period; Neh 2:1; Est 3:7

s Ex 12:2; 23:15; 34:18; Dt 16:1

 Christian Standard Bible. (2017). (Ex 13:3–4). Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers.

Seems to be working OK for me.

Is it, perhaps, a feature of one particular bible?

The problem I have does seem to limited to certain bibles, like ESV, NKJ, NASB.. They are the ones I tried and can't not get the copy from the right click menu to work Maybe because these resources are tagged with interlinear data.

Also, I had to enter into the command box "show copy bible verses" to get the copy bible verses window. It does not appear as an option in the tools menu??

It should appear as the first item under the Passage section:

You can right-click on any tool in the menu, and (de)select "Pin to top" to control which tools appear at the top of the menu.

Still unable to replicate the problem  :-(

The ESV works ok

And who shall stand in his zholy place? 

aHe who has bclean hands and ca pure heart, 

who does not dlift up his soul to ewhat is false 

and does not swear deceitfully. 

z Ps. 2:6

a [Deut. 10:12; Isa. 33:15, 16; Mic. 6:8]

b See Job 22:30

c Ps. 73:1; Matt. 5:8

d [Ezek. 18:6]

e Ps. 31:6; 119:37

 The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Ps 24:3–4). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

The top entry in the 'CopyLess' panel shows the clipboard being populated by text using the Right Click menu.

The second entry (a few moments before) shows the clipboard being populated by Cmd C.

Both methods paste ok. I also tried the NKJ and it too copied using the right click menu and Cmd C.

Thanks Mike. I don't know why mine does not work? At any rate I will just use CMD c..
