As you’re working in a versified book (primarily Bibles and commentaries) you’ll find yourself constantly typing Bible verses in its reference box. For example, if you’re in a Bible you can type Ps 23 in the reference box, press the Enter key and jump to that location. Here are a couple of little tricks to help out in that reference box:
- You can press Ctrl + G (PC) or Cmd + G (Mac) to select all of the text in the reference box. This saves you from having to constantly move the cursor into the box and manually select text.
- Make sure to use abbreviations: Jn 3:16 or jn3.16 or jn3 16 all will take you to John 3:16.
- Use a ‘super short’ reference to navigate within the same section of a Bible or commentary. For example, if the reference box contains John 10.2, press Ctrl + G or Cmd + G to select the text, just type 10, and press the Enter key to jump to John 10:10! Type 17.1 to jump to John 17:1.
