An important feature of a good UI is consistency so that the user knows what to expect. Showing heroic constraint, I ask that Faithlife fix this instance and check the remaining Context Menu left side entries for consistency.

Select a Sentence type entry on the left side and Copy reference: Search on the right. It provides the following text which corresponds to what is used in the Searches one can initiate below.

  • {Section <Sentence = Declarative>}
  • {Section <Sentence = Imperative>}
  • {Section <Sentence = Interrogative>}

However, select a literary type entry on the left side and you get things such as:

  • <LiteraryTyping ~ Novella>
  • <LiteraryTyping ~ Prose>
  • <LiteraryTyping ~ Saga, Abraham>

Notice that these are in standard datatype format. However, if I use them in an everything search, I find almost no results. However, if I initiate a Search, I get the same format as I got for Sentence type

  • {Section <LiteraryTyping = Novella>}
  • {Section <LiteraryTyping = Prose>}
  • {Section <LiteraryTyping = Saga, Abraham>}

Please treat Literary Typing (and all other datatypes requiring the Section extension) in the same way that Sentence is handled, using the Section construct in both the Copy and he Search.
