Scriptures in Microsoft OneNote

Postby jeffvand » Mon Jul 30, 2007 2:52 am

I originally posted this on my blog, but since I only started it a couple of weeks ago, I am going to try this here in hopes of getting more responses. :-)

Does anybody know of a way to import the online version of the scriptures into OneNote? I use OneNote extensively for my gospel study and love the hyperlink capability (not to mention the ability to tag, highlight, annotate and so much more). I have been slowly manually copying and pasting over the scriptures into OneNote, but it is a slow process… I am still debating about what would be best, but here are the two options I am thinking of.


1. Create an offline HTML backup of the entire scriptures.lds.org with a tool like WinHTTrack. Then try to edit the HTML and add tags that will put the books in separate sections and the chapters as pages and then find a way to import. I don’t really know how to code so this is proving to be a bit hard, and then I’m not even sure how to import a bunch of HTML at once.
Potentially this would be the best if I could change all the href link to lds.org and make them specific to the local copy in OneNote.


2. Find a complete PDF version of the scriptures and use a tool to import them all at once again. Or even chapter by chapter. I am a bit more inclined to this one because then I still have to physically navigate to the page I am looking for (helping me to remember where things are instead of instantly linking there). But again, I can not find a complete copy of the scriptures in PDF format. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for all your help!

I'd check out this site. It has "unofficial" copies of the scriptures available in various formats.

You can find PDF of Triple Combinationat and Bible at the links below:

http://lds.org/languages/gospeldoctrine/Triple_Combination.pdf
http://lds.org/languages/gospeldoctrine/oldtestament/Holy_Bible.pdf

If you need a Html version go to the link below with Internet Explorer:
http://etext.virginia.edu/etcbin/toccer-new2?id=BooMorm.sgm&images=images/modeng&data=/texts/english/modeng/parsed&tag=public&part=all

Then go to the File menu select "Save As.." when the dialog box comes up change the "Save as type:" to "Web Archive, single file (*.mht)".

If you want the text in OneNote open and get new page.
Goto etext.virginia.edu web page of Book of Mormon type Ctrl+a (Select all text) then Ctrl+c (Copy selected text).
Goto OneNote new page type Ctrl+v (Paste text into OneNote).

Note all these are not "official" sources.

Have you tried finding your answer on the LDS.org Help Center page or the LDSTech wiki?
