    When I use biblegateway.com to copy and paste verses, I get this...

    That's not just this site but it's from BG, unfortunately. I've always used BG to get Scripture to copy and paste on forums and I've been finding issues like this. It's putting in the codes to those little colored blocks that are over the highlighted text. It's really frustrating, I know!

    And when I use biblestudytools.com, I get this...


    11 For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people.
    References for Titus 2:11
    12 It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age,
    References for Titus 2:12
    13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ,
    References for Titus 2:13
    14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
    References for Titus 2:14
    15 These, then, are the things you should teach. Encourage and rebuke with all authority. Do not let anyone despise you.

    Can these be fixed? Under the other BB format, there was not this problem. Please fix this. Please?

    You can avoid some of it by using the "paste as plain text" option but I have no idea what to do about the rest. :)

    Sister Annsni said she was having this problem with BG prior to the software change. Bummer. I really like using it to copy and paste and will continue to do so, but the "<:&[email protected]*" in between words is a bit tiresome. :(

    How are you doing your copy-and-pasting?

    I just tried it and it works great for me. I'm using Firefox and I simply highlight the desired text by holding down the left mouse button and running it over the text, releasing the left button and clicking the right mouse button, selecting "Copy" with left mouse button, then coming over here and clicking right mouse button, and selecting paste.

    Easy-peasy.

    That's what I am doing, too. Left click and drag the mouse to highlight the verses I want. I think right click and chose 'copy'. I then come back and right click, choose paste and this is what I get...

    How do you do this? Where is that option? I just get 'copy' and 'paste' and other options when I right click....but never have seen an option 'paste as plain text." :(

    When I right click on a highlighted area I get "cut, copy, paste, paste as plain text." If you are not getting that try holding down <shift> and <control> and pressing <v>.

    The only options I have once I right click is copy, paste, delete, select all, and inspect element.

    The <control>, <shift>, and <v> didn't work either. :(
