Is there a way to export from a commentary or other book that has Scripture references and NOT have the Scripture references be hyperlinked to Logos? I understand that would be useful at times, but at other times I do not want the hyperlink nor the formatting that comes with hyperlinks (blue underlined). I realize that I could probably remove all hyperlinks in Word (Select all and then Control+Shift+F9) but I don't always want to remove all. And it does not change the formatting. It would seem to me that there has got to be a way to stop the hyperlink insertion. Help!

In short, No!

Export to XPS document does what you want but you have then to convert to Word format (browse for XPS to Word free)

Have you tried a simple copy/paste from Logos to Word instead of using the Export command? It doesn't bring the hyperlinks across.

Here are three examples:

1. Copy (Ctrl+C) then Paste:

2. Export > "Copy to Clipboard" then Paste:

3. Export > "Send to new document: Microsoft Word":

Control + C is difficult for items longer than a paragraph or two (and screen breaks are a big problem).

I'm surprised that Logos does not have this option. It would seem a no-brainer.

Have you tried using Print / Export to copy to the clipboard and then - in Word - selecting the Paste Special option "keep text only"?

It seems to give what you are looking for - my screenshot is from Office 365, may be different depending on version

You can click at the beginning of where you want the selection to start, then scroll down to where you want it to end and do Shift+Click to make the complete selection. Then Ctrl+C should work.

There is a limit to the length of text you can copy this way, though. Not sure what that limit is.

That would lose all the formatting.

I guess Ctrl+Shift+F9 to remove hyperlinks would be my preferred workaround for this, though you've already said you don't want to do that in case there are some you do want to keep. You'd have to eyeball it and selectively go through removing them only in the paragraphs that had nothing but Scripture references.

Yes, I agree, there should be an option to export without the hyperlinks. You can post a suggestion for that feature on UserVoice and post back here on the forums to recommend that people vote for your idea.
