Hi,

When copying/pasting text from Logos 6 to MS Word I ran into the following problem. Besides the original footnotes made by the author, Logos is also including its own footnotes transcribing abbreviations, such as

mt Masoretic Text

lxx Septuagint

e.g. exempli gratia, for example

VTSup Vetus Testamentum Supplements

NICOT New International Commentary on the Old Testament

AB Anchor Bible

NAC New American Commentary

CBQ Catholic Biblical Quarterly

ZAW Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft

JSOT Journal for the Study of the Old Testament

ZAW Zeitschrift für die alttestamentliche Wissenschaft

ICC International Critical Commentary

WBC Word Biblical Commentary

VT Vetus Testamentum

... And so on

Before I was able to turn it off in settings by disabling the "Copy Footnotes" option, while leaving the "Copy citations" enabled.

But now if I do that Logos will not only not copy extraneous footnotes mentioned above, but will also leave out the original footnotes made by the author of the text.

So the question is: is there still a way to copy and paste the text without the Logos added footnotes, while keeping the original ones? It's very inconvenient and time consuming to "clean up" the document from all the extra footnotes.

Thanks!

Hi Mykola.

I can reproduce this in the New Testament Use Of The Old Testament when copying into MS Word:

In L7 I managed to lose the "extraneous footnote" by doing as you said - Copy Citations "Yes", Copy Footnotes "No".

I found that after changing the settings I had to re-select the text before copying and pasting to get the desired outcome. 

Perhaps this is a bug in L6?

Hope you get it fixed!

Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me anymore. I lose the original footnotes as well.

AFAIK all "footnotes" are excluded. Why should it distinguish "original footnotes"? Provide an example.

I think what he wants is normal behavior ... the notes that are in the resource remain as notes and the Logos tagging does not appear as footnotes. This is a bug either in the resource or the program as the example shown in the replication above should NEVER occur.

No, there is not. The "Copy footnotes" setting controls both kinds.

The problem is that these are not footnotes - anywhere. And they do not show as footnotes in page mode. And no academic style has you use both an inline reference and a footnote.

Was there ever a fix to this? I've encountered the same problem. Very frustrating, especially when using Beale and Carson's commentary on NT use of the OT.

Yes, this is an issue that needs to be addressed. I have to allow one whole day of my assessment, to 1) get rid of these extraneous footnotes. 2) change the style to that required by my University, as they use a modified version of SBL or Chigago. It is a pity we also can't create the University's modified style.  Secondly, the footnotes format can at times be quite different from the other footnotes, so I have to check whether they follow the same format as the others (like sometimes the Christian name will be after the surname, the edition number will be goodness knows where). And then in NIDOTTE there is no volume number.  This causes me to lose marks with my lecturer as I am not correctly footnoting and of course he can not easily check that I have not cheated and am correct in my referencing to prevent plagiarism.

I was able to paste without the footnotes by pasting it through Paste Special....  and then Pasting it as an Unformatted Text...hope that helps.
