When speaking about references, we refer to the list of references available in the references window. It is a list of verses, e.g. Genesis 2:2.

How to load references?

References are loaded in the references window.

References can be loaded as a result of:

* A search operation.

* Opening a list of references, through menu View / References, then click [actions] and then "Import a list of references".

* Checking.

* Getting them from a projectnote.

When a list of references is opened, up to three words can be chosen to be highlighted in the text editor, when a reference is activated in the references window.

How to go to a reference?

The references list is used to quickly navigate to the verse referred to. Just click on the reference and Bibledit presents that verse in the text editor.

Navigation aids:

* Next Reference (F6): Actives the first reference, or if one is active already (except the last one), the next one.

* Previous Reference (Shift+F6) Actives the first reference, or if one is active already (except the first one), the previous one.

A list of references can be saved through menu, File / Export. See information about exporting data.

How to hide references?

Any references that are at present in the references window can be hidden for the future. Click [actions], then "Hide ... from now on". It won't come back in the future.

The list of references that has been hidden can be seen and edited via [actions], then "Manage the hidden references".

How to go back to an original reference?

When working in a text and going to another reference, it is important to have a way to go back to the original reference.
