Is there a way to copy multiple verses (ex. John 3:16; Isaiah 53:5; Rom. 6:23) all into a Word document without having to copy each verse individually?  I often need to copy multiple texts from different books into a document, but it's tedious to have to jump back to E-Sword and copy each verse over separately.  Is there a way to make a "batch copy" of various verses?  I remember this feature was very helpful back in the "old days" with my ancient copy of QuickVerse.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

e-Sword doesn't. The best you have is the Paste into whatever editor is being used, and the ability copy multiple verses. And that's about it.

 

Sorry I can't be of any more of a help to you.

Yes there is a way to do this that was introduced with e-Sword 10.2

You can paste multiple references to a verse list as long as they are separated by a semicolon ;

From the Verse List window you can of course copy all the verses....

OR

As you are using Word, you could install the e-Sword macros for Word and use that to process each verse reference. But this way only does one verse reference at a time and you have to select each one... press the 'Convert scripture reference' icon.

Macros are from the official e-Sword site https://www.e-sword.net/extras.html

 

OR

Once you have the macros installed you can use ESM in ToolTipTool NT the utility that can be used to make modules. It has a menu feature ESM (e-Sword Macro) that has the item 'Auto Fill'. You paste your references to ToolTipTool NT and select them, then 'Auto Fill' and they will all be processed as per your e-Sword copy verses setting.

Or you could use Hotkey in ToolTipTool NT, this has many features that you would need to explore....

What a dipstick!!! I forgot about the verse list. I should've known. Its the one glaring obvious thing to use, and it never entered my mind. Reckon after that, I seriously need a cast iron frying pan in between my eyeballs. Thonk!

 

Thank you Jon.
