      When I run this clip it inserts the text of the clip itself into the text at the cursor location.

            You had me wondering there what was going on ... your examples had "--"
            separators in between them so I hadn't attempted to make it "safe" at
            end-of-file.

            If you change the trailing \r\n in the find clause to optional ie:
            (?:\r\n)? it should work either way. (Note the 'w' in 'rwsai' options
            means process start of file not from cursor. Selected or not selected
            would only be relevant if an 'h' option were include (eg rwsaih)

            so clip becomes (again it will wrap in Yahoo):
            H="work test"
            ^!replace "(\w+\x20\d+:\d+)\r\n(.*?)(?:\r\n)" >>
            ""[COLOR="DarkRed"]$2"\x20--$1\r\n" rwsai

            btw: interesting that Don's solution focused on subject knowledge (names
            of the Gospels) while mine focused on the format of numeric identifier.
            I haven't tested his but assume it works too :-)

              I'm wondering if Craig had the clips wrapped ... the command is all on
              one line.

              I was going off of some prior bible work we did around here and if I
              remember correctly some citations did not follow that data format ... so
              I figured books might be the safer bet.

              Alec, if you don t include the ^ at the start, then you will find the citations again on a re-run and things will be all out of whack, I think ...
