BibleWorks is close to perfection for all this, including exportation. Just
to be scrupulous,  I  may note that sometimes the selection of a word or a
sentence is not immediately done on the first click : perhaps already
corrected for the next version ? I own 3.5.51. Unfortunately, there is no
accentuation of Hebrew text.
To palliate this, I have The Holy Scripture from Davka Corporation : superb
text with all accents but strict limits to printing and exportation : one
psq at a time, no more.  It means long preparation for classroom.
I add for a Swiss citizen that you should be careful with Davka products for
keyboard : I can't make serious research with their 'Holy Scripture' because
it doesn't handle azerty keyboard.  This is also why I use Dagesh as a word
processor : no problem with keyboard, perfect word-wrap and really
multilingual (50 different keymaps) with free mix of languages, characters
and text direction in a single document. Six main menus language, including
French and English.
