Normally I copy verses with highlight/ ctrl c. However, if the verse has a foot note, on hitting ctrl, a window pops up on the note. As long as that window is up, the verse will not copy -- not in any way, ctrl c or n, or a drop down menu. The pop up window has to go away first. This is accomplished by rolling the cursor over the window, and then hitting ctrl c. So... it took me a long time to figure this out. I guess it is basic knowledge, but I did not know it.
