Copy and Paste

How do you copy and paste a bible verse or range of bible verses to the clip board? I use the Export/Copy verse(s) to clip board but when I go to paste it in an email or text file there is nothing in the clip board.

That should copy to the clipboard. Exporting a verse or range on right-click in the Bible Panel copies to the clipboard as well, or it should. Let me know if that doesn't either.

I just tried Copy to File and Copy to S-pad and that works fine but not copy to clip board.

I also select a Bible verse in the Bible panel right click and select copy selection but nothing goes tot the clip board

Probably a conflict somewhere. I will try to sort it out and post an update by next weekend.

For waht it is worth, I cannot reproduce this. I right click in the Bible pane and select a range with export, and it pastes properly to email, text editor, as well as the S-Pad.

Brother Mike,

Thanks for your input-- for what you say and from some experimenting with other Linux native Bible Software the problem seems to be in all the Linux Bible Software-- I use theWord also which is windows program under Wine and I can copy and paste fine with that. I can also copy and paste with any other Linux software but not the Bible programs. So I am clueless as to the cause.

I think I may have mis-read your issue. I CAN copy and paste by selecting a vers and then doing a right-click to get a menu.

If I do a File (menu) => Copy / Export verses, and copy to clipboard, this does NOT work. I usually do not use the menu bar items, so I did not see this before. Try the right-click and see if that works.
