#24 - Using and printing S&H cross-references in Concord for DOS
by Robert Nguyen Cramer
This BibleTexts website administrator has very much enjoyed questions and insights that have been emailed to him ever since this site was launched in September of 1996. On this page I share with BibleTexts browsers a few of the questions, insights, and responses, so that we all can further learn from and with each other.
Question/insight #24: "I am unable to figure out how to copy the cross-references for S&H & Prose Works, so they can be printed out in text in Concord. Do you have time to lend a hand?"
As described near the top of each "topics" webpage (e.g., http://www.bibletexts.com/topics/b.htm)
"These webpages are formated, so that you can
(1) copy (Ctrl-C) and
(2) paste (Ctrl-V) the references into a text file such as c:\sp\notes.txt, which you can easily
(3) import (Ctrl-R) into a Concord notebook file.
(4) Then you can use Concord to look up all of the references."
Here are some additional notes:
Highlight the references you find in the BibleTexts webpages. (Do this either by dragging your mouse-pointer over the text OR by holding down the shift key while using your arrow keys.) For instance in this week's Bible Lesson, we have the 2nd Beatitude with the footnote that leads you to the http://www.bibletexts.com/topics/b.htm webpage, where you find the following:
Highlight everything from and including "Mat 5:4" to "My 295:1". (You can practice with the references above.)
Then press: Ctrl-C (the "Ctrl" key and the "C" key simultaneously).
if in Windows 95, or Windows 98, or Windows NT client, click on your "Start" button
if you are in Windows 3.1, click on "File" near the top-left of your screen
Then click on "Run"
Then type: NOTEPAD and click on "OK"
Then press: Ctrl-V (the "Ctrl" key and the "V" key simultaneously).
Then delete any strange characters at the very end of the text that you just imported.
Then click on "File"
Then click on "Save as"
Then type: "c:\sp\notes.txt"
Then if prompted, click on "Yes" when asked if you want to overwrite the file that already exists.
Then open Concord to a new or existing Notebook file.
Then press: Ctrl-R (the "Ctrl" key and the "R" key simultaneously).
Now press the "+" key to begin reading the references.
