Re: A different question about copying.
I think your suggestion of prepending the copied selection with the reference is an excellent idea. To my knowledge, none of our Sword frontends does this.

BibleDesktop does something like what you are asking in a couple of different ways.

Unlike the other Sword frontends, BibleDesktop is geared toward the passage and not the chapter. You can display just what you want to see.

When you enter something in "Show Passage", each contiguous set of verses is titled. You can then copy the title along with the verse.

You can also choose on the View menu: View -> Verse Numbers -> Show Book, Chapter and Verse Numbers. You can further modify this with View -> Use Small Verse Numbers (to turn off the default) and with View -> Start Verses on Separate Lines (off is the default). This will produce the following:

(Acts 28:23) And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.
(Acts 28:24) And some believed the things which were spoken, and some believed not.

You can use Ctrl-C to copy a selection and Ctrl-V to paste (or Cmd-C/Cmd-V on the Mac).
