Post Clipboard cleared after close of theWord software
For years, this problem has bugged me but I never got around to contacting anyone about it. I've been "dealing with" the problem for more than 10 years at this point, AFAIK.

I often bring up theWord to copy a scripture reference, then paste it as a reply online, or in a Word document for sermons. Unfortunately, if I use the Copy Verses... option (which I always do), the clipboard is cleared when I close theWord.

I have closed the app, expecting to paste my scriptures, and the clipboard is blank! Then I have to open theWord again, and do it all over again, keeping theWord open while I paste, then close it again.

I know that Microsoft Word asks if you want to keep the contents of the clipboard when you have copied and then attempted to close Word. Can't this either be a request like Word does, or an option in the settings to ALWAYS keep the clipboard contents when closing theWord?

I have not found it to be the case on Windows 10. The data is there for me to paste.

Also on Windows 10 you can activate Clipboard history. You copy in the normal way. That data is stored in a clipboard history which you activate with Windows logo key +V. A window opens with clips which you click on to insert in your document or web-page. There are third-party alternatives to this.

I use Windows 10 exclusively, have more than 5 PCs at home, and work from home. I have tested this on at least two laptops, one server, and multiple PCs, all running the latest version of Windows 10 updates.
I do remote PC repairs from home, and for reasons of consumer privacy, I cannot enable clipboard history, as it would present a potential security breach.
Perhaps you can try with clipboard history off and see what happens.

I have never been able to close theWord after copying (again using Copy Verses..., Copy and close) then close theWord and paste anywhere. I just tried again. I am using theWord 5.0.0.1450.

I did not have the Windows clipboard on actually, that was just a suggestion.
I was just a little quick on my paste after closing theWord. When I waited a few more seconds, paste did go grayed out.
However the latest stable beta appears to have the behaviour you need. I don't recall when this changed. So if you are comfortable with the beta (I am), try it, or wait for the released version. No idea when this will happen. I suggest making a new compact install with the USB option selected so you can try this out in isolation from your main install. See the links in my signature for instructions.
