I am also having the same issue.  

(RE-EDITED AND DELETED A SECTION LATER HERE)

Addendum:

I got it to work finally....had to copy an entire sentence from my Logos source and then delete out what I did not need.  In short, copying and citing just a few words does not work.

JoshInRI:

Why O Why are the simplest most obvious things challenging to do in Logos.  It used to work??!!!!

In this case, you're dealing with two different applications, developed by two different companies, and a change in one program affected the other.

Things break at times, which are outside of FL's control, and FL fixes issues in upcoming releases.

While this particular issue may be a nuisance for you at present, it doesn't hurt to be thankful for word processors and bible study software that we didn't have a couple of decades ago.

This is by design - and has been the case for a long time. I believe the lower limit is about 40 characters

As far as I know, the only people having problems are those who subscribe to the Office Insider program, which is basically the Office 365 Beta program. So, chances are, the issue is a Microsoft one, not one with Logos. 

Also, someone mentioned doing a "Paste Special" and pasting as RTF, and that does work, placing the footnotes at the bottom. It's an extra step, however, it takes less time to Paste something in then copy and paste into a manually created footnote (going step by step to create it). 

I am perfectly okay with a few extra steps, especially knowing that it was my choice in joining the Office Insider program that probably caused this to not work.

A word processor that does work well both with this feature and when working with Hebrew text is Mellel.

UPDATE: Please ignore the suggestion of Mellel since it does not export to .docx format.

But can Melel save in docx format?

Jack,

Thanks for asking, I thought Mellel did export to .docx and it looks like it does not export to .docx at this time. I would not  have suggested the app if I had realized it couldn't. I thought it had added that feature recently, but it looks like its still being requested.

I am having the same issue mentioned by Jon Bradley as well. I have tried pasting using "keep source formatting," and "match formatting." but it no longer copies with the citation in the footnotes. It just copies like it used to when I would copy it as text if I didn't want to keep the footnote. Now I can't get it to make the footnote with the citation unless I manually copy the citation into a footnote. Please fix this.

The only way I was able to get it to work like it used to was to paste using RTF, but as Jon said that is a a couple extra steps and less convenient since the old way used to work just fine.

I'm in Santa Rosa Beach, FL.  Not having any problems but I'm using Microsoft Word version 14.7.0, so it might be your version.

Hope you get it worked out soon.

Blessings!

Susan

Susan this maybe because you're not on office subscription?

Thanks for letting us know, Philana. I am looking forward to this being figured out as I complete my thesis (complete with Turabian formatting) this spring. I am praying for Microsoft's cooperation in correcting this.

I also am having this issue. I am using Word for Mac and have an Office 365 subscription as others have noted. I haven't tried the RTF work around yet, but will see if that works for me.
