The Copy reference entry is available for most Context Menu entries -- I use it heavily. However, it is missing for {Addressee <Person Abraham>} and {Speaker <Person God>} . Please add it in ASAP

it is missing for the datatypes <Speaker nnnn>and <Addressee nnnn>

Those aren't data types.

Okay, the correct forms are {Addressee <Person Abraham>} and {Speaker <Person God>} but my point remains  It fact it is strengthened because I could use copy reference: search

So there can't be a "Copy Reference" entry because these aren't references.

think what you're asking for is (a feature request) to copy the Search syntax for Reported Speech data; is that correct?

Thank you Bradley. I see that "reference" (URL, Search, Text) is being used with a different meaning than I was applying. You are correct that what I want is a new feature that covers a different subset of the data available through the context menu.

Note that Labels do have the Copy Reference option.

That's because Labels are a datatype reference.
