How to Enable the Copy to Clipboard Feature
One of the newer features on the Blue Letter Bible website allows users to more effeciently adapt Scripture references for their own purposes. This is performed through the use of the clipboard. When material is copied, it is placed into the clipboard, then the user may paste the contents of the clipboard into their own document. This FAQ shows users how to enable this feature for their own use. For instructions, please select the appropriate browser below:
