At one point in years past, when we would copy or print (with footnotes) selected resource text, Logos was smart enough to show only one time for each abbreviation all the "footnotes" that are generated by abbreviation pop-ups.  Then I think we lost this feature, but then it seems like it came back, but not as thoroughly applied as I would like to see.

Any news on this feature?

Sorry, your description doesn't "ring any bells"

Thanks, at least I'm not missing something.

Can you be more specific about the issue e.g.  a screenshot would help

[Bump]

This behavior is still bugging me, and I finally have the right combination of time, motivation and examples to follow up.

I think Logos resources are typically tagged with pop-ups generated from the tables of abbreviations and sigla of the particular resource.  These pop-ups turn into footnotes when text is copied-and-pasted into a Word document.

There was a time (now many years ago) when Logos would have been smart enough to produce only a single footnote occurrence for such pop-ups.  If the same pop-up appeared multiple times in the same block of copied text, Logos would generate a footnote for the first one and ignore all the others.

E.g., there would have been only one footnote for "[" and "]" in the first image, or for "BH" in the second, or for "n.", "adj." and "e.g." in the third.

When I copy with footnotes, I definitely want all the true footnotes, and often I need a few of the pop-ups explaining abbreviations and symbols.  I'm willing to delete manually the pop-up footnotes that I don't need, but it is a big time-waster to delete the same pop-up footnote again and again throughout a Word document.

Any other long-term users out there who copy-and-paste to Word frequently, with my same memory?

Any hope for (a return to) the helpful elimination of redundancy in footnotes generated from abbreviation and sigla pop-ups?

This issue is discussed in https://community.logos.com/forums/p/131635/856782.aspx - and as far as I can see there isn't a way to do what you are looking for. 

But I agree that there should be!
