Sometimes I  copy a passage from Logos into Word, and what gets pasted is in Greek. For example: I copied the highlighted passage in the first screenshot, and what came out in Word is reflected in the second screenshot - Just a two letter Greek word. It's even more weird because what's pasted doesn't even reflect the number of words I copied!

This behavior was also present in Logos 6. I thought it might have stopped in 7, but now for the first time, I'm experiencing it again. It seems like it only happens when I'm copying from a Bible, not when copying from another resource. For example, I copied from the Handbook in the panel next to the Bible, and it copied into Word fine.

This only happens when I right click and select "copy." It doesn't happen if I just do Ctrl C.

Next time this happens to you, right click again and check to see what you have selected on the right side of the context menu. Most like it is the lemma, manuscript, or root value rather than the surface text.

Thanks Andrew. I do see that on the right menu, but I don't see a place where I can choose surface text instead, even when I scroll further down the list. Isn't this odd behavior to default to? Or did I at some point accidentally change a setting somewhere?

The "surface text" should be above,the reference 

Can you scroll up?

Ah yes, ok. It doesn't say surface; it just has the first few words of the passage. I choose that and it copied over fine. Yay! It's been a minor annoyance, but I kept forgetting to ask about it.
