I don't think this is addressed elsewhere in the forum -apologies if I missed it. Does anyone know how to do accomplish the following:

The software looks very useful and I appreciate the features in it. I would like to select a block of verses and then copy those, preferably the verse/passage reference along with the verse/passage/version itself, to a list or folder on a given topic. And then port or copy this somehow to my Mac.

So far (new iTouch and new Mantis User), the Bookmark function and the Global Note feature seem almost there. But the Bookmarks function doesn't seem to handle the list as a list that I can review or turn into a text file. The Global Note feature doesn't include a scripture reference when I copy and paste a verse into a topical notes folder. The notes feature allows me to type additional notes, which is useful though not essential for this purpose.

As for copying to my Mac, the online notes editor looks helpful in this regard, but it doesn't appear to handle Bookmarks. I haven't figured out the local server option, but will look more for directions on that.

I use Online Bible software on my Mac, which allows me to select a block of verses and with a single menu stroke move them to a list that is saved as a separate file. I am hoping for something similar with Mantis.

The software currently doesn't do that exactly, although you could copy/paste a range of verses into a global note.

We are working on a new way to deal with notes in a future update, so we'll take your comments into account as we design this.

Thank you for considering it and for a prompt reply. I'll work with the current version and look forward to future updates.
