  • First find some text with B.C. or A.D. in it in small caps (e.g., BECNT: John, p. 370, in the second paragraph under exegesis and exposition of John 12:12-13, about halfway through the paragraph: "They were a prominent feature at the rededication of the temple by the Maccabeans in 164 b.c.")
  • Open a Clippings file.
  • Select that text with the B.C. or A.D. in it.
  • Right-click and select "Add a clipping to..." (your open clippings file).
  • Now go to the clipping and select that text which just got added to it.
  • Right-click, select Copy.
  • Open Word and Paste (with Keep Source Formatting).

Result: The small caps formatting on B.C. or A.D. is lost and it becomes b.c. or a.d.

Note that if you copy directly from the original resource and paste into Word without going through the step of adding it to a clipping first, the formatting is retained. And the small cap formatting is retained in the clipping. It just gets lost when you copy from the clipping and paste somewhere outside of Logos. If you copy and paste from a clipping to somewhere else within Logos (e.g., a Note), that formatting is retained. So it's something to do with Logos's clipboard rendering for other apps when the clipboard source is from a clipping.

I have confirmed this, thanks.
