See the attached screen print from Word for an example. In the first pasted verse I went to Logos and used the copy Bible verses tool to copy the verse and pasted it. In the second example I used the "Replace with Passage" service.

You can see two problems:

1. Notice that the verse numbers are no longer superscript. This is a bug that has continued I believe since Logos 4. It would be great if it were fixed, because it would speed up my workflow significantly. For some reason Replace with Passage does not properly follow the formatting for the verse.

2. The "Replace with Passage" does not use the font being used in the document (in this case Times New Roman), but changes the font to Helvetica. This requires changing the font on the paste to match the document font.

The Replace with Passage service would be really helpful on Mac if only these two bugs could be fixed.

I suspect we don't have control over the formatting used in this situation, but I'm checking with one of the Mac developers.

Here's something that's even stranger....

Using Pages 5.2.2 the "Replace with Passage" service will maintain the superscript but will revert the font to Helvetica 12 point in all cases.  Word 2011 "Replace with Passage" service loses both the superscript and font.  I'm also running the MS Word 2016 Preview and will check later to see if the same "Replace with Passage" anomaly shows up.

By the way, just as the OP stated, this has been going on at least since Logos 5.

In Christ,

Charles

Can you confirm this Tommy?
