ESV Microsoft Word Plugin

Jason shares a Microsoft Word plugin he wrote that uses the ESV Web Service to insert a passage into a Word document.

The plugin is a Word template (.dot) and macro that adds a toolbar to Word:

The toolbar has Show Passage, Create Passage Link, Footnote Passage, Insert Passage, and Options buttons.

Let’s go through each of the buttons.

Show Passage

This button pops up a window containing the text of the highlighted verse reference:

A dialog box shows the text of Mark 4:1.

Create Passage Link

This button creates a link to the Bible Gateway.

Mark 4:1 is now linked to the Bible Gateway.

Footnote Passage

This button adds a footnote containing the passage text.

A footnote number appears next to Mark 4:1 in the document. It points to a footnote containing the text of the verse.

Insert Passage

This button inserts the text of the passage directly into the document. First you confirm the passage you want to insert (it defaults to any text you’ve highlighted):

A dialog box asks you to confirm the passage.

Press OK to insert the text:

The text of the passage appears in your document.

Options

Finally, you can choose some options to control how you insert the text:

Turn on and off things like footnotes and verse numbers.

Installation

Download it here. You might need to lower your security settings temporarily to let the macro run. You can do so from Tools > Options > Security > Macro Security (button) > Medium. Just remember to raise your security settings again once you’re done.
