Copy from anywhere (Guides, Search Results, Resource Info panel)

Add the ability to select and copy text from all the places we used to be able to in L3: Passage/Exegetical Guides, Bible Word Study, Search Results, and Resource info panels.

        Anonymous, this isn't a good place to help you, but ask on the forums and we'll help you out.

        I am not sure I fully understand the problem with allowing copy/paste in every area of the software. I have been using only Bibles for years, copying and pasting my search results into docs or spreadsheets so I can reorder, filter and comment under or next to the verse. I eagerly jumped into my new Logos app, after putting off for years the major expenditure, and I find I can't do this most basic function: copying and pasting from search results en masse. I began doing them on verse at a time - putting them into a notes document but then realized, unless I am wrong, I can't export or copy and paste from that document either. I've tried every trick, searched through the wiki. If someone can tell me that I am all wet and I've missed an obvious option--I would love to hear from you. Frankly, I just can't imagine what the concern may be with Logos, in prohibiting a foundational function like this.

        More ammunition for this feature request: copy from guides needs to be refined more. You can copy the entire Word by Word section of an Exegetical Guide, but that is probably overkill. What if I only want to copy a definition. We should be able to select any text in a Guide and right click on it and copy it. See https://community.logos.com/forums/t/100070.aspx

        I would very much like to copy ALL aspects of Interlinear translations (i.e. English, Greek/Hebrew, morphology, etc). If there is a way to do so, I've not found it. It is possible to "capture" the screen with 3rd party programs and paste the resultant "picture" onto a document, but it would be much preferable to copy & paste text as text.

        Yes Please, a formatted copy from search results is critical to having an efficient sermon preparation work flow!

        I would like the ability to copy text from just about anywhere any Logos 4. I especially would like that feature for copying search results. I could do this in Quickverse (when I used the program) but this is not an option in Logos 4.

        I would also like to add that the font sizes for Search Results, Resources, and the Info panel are very small. So is the parsing information. I would like an option to change the font size in anything in Logos 4, not just books and bibles, etc.

        I miss the macro in L3 that enabled me to simply AND QUICKLY type the Bible reference in my document, and it appeared. No copy and paste. Please get the macro enablement for Logos 4

        Restore copy text from Text Comparison. This function ceased with the 4.1. Please add back.

      • Rosie Perera commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Most of this is a moot point, now that we have the "copy to clipboard" in the new Export feature in 4.1. But I still would like to see Logos bring back the ability to select and copy any text from the Resource info panel (either in the Library or in the Resource itself).
