I've been looking for a way to copy verses that appear in the windows that come up when you hover over a link in E-Sword. Even though I've been using E-Sword for a while, I'm still clueless to its many uses. It's really arduous to click on the link to bring up the passage in another window, and then go back to the original passage after I've copied the linked verse, especially if I go through a series of passages. Any help would be truly appreciated.

You can press F4 and it should copy exactly what is in the popup window

Hi Tim,

The e-Sword User Guide (which really should be called the "e-Sword User Manual) is seriously that one should have. It actually answers nearly all of the questions that even gets asked on this site. Like you, I've been using e-Sword for quite some time [16 years to be precise]  and I'm still finding stuff out about the program that I didn't know, and that comes as a result of the User Guide. I would, at a guess, say that the Guide would answer about 98% of problems users have come against with e-Sword. About the only kind of issues that the guide doesn't answer are PEBKAC, Hardware and Operating System issues.
