Post Copy Verses formatting
I'm messing around with the formatting in the Copy Verses feature for copying verses to Microsoft Word. I have it close to how I'd like it, but I would love to be able to make the verse reference (book, chapter, verse) be in italics. Does anyone know if there is any way to do this?

There is not a feature to make these italic. But you could put some tags in your placeholders that you could do a wildcard search and replace on to convert to italic text.
Just an example of what I mean.
At step 4 in the copy verses window, where it says before each verse you could put
<i>%v </i>


This would give something like this, which you could then search and replace in Word (wildcards checked)
\<i\>(*)\</i\>

Replace

\1

Font italic set in the Format.

Can this process be made automatic somehow, JG?

Thank you. Good idea. It would be nice if this could be worked into a future version. The option for bold text is in there, so it doesn't seem like it would be hard to also add an option for italics.

Thanks for the idea, though.

It probably can be added in the future. When that time is I don't know. That is why I do suggest workaround for things.
In Word it should be easy enough to make a macro and icon so that the process can be somewhat automated.
Or we must be content with what we have.
