Out of the 3994 hits out of 3751 verses,  for the word "but" in English the concordance tool supplied a result for the KJV1900. Is there any way to export them back into the text of the KJV to mark them with the highlighter tool?  or has that been asked again? Our pastor aways speaks of his "But" bible  as it exists; yet I have not found one on the market The steps to export it into  to a MS WORD or PDF might make a great retirement gift. Yes they never actually retire, but when he is not FT pastor.

I imagine it will be a daunting task even on the best PC for the most Logos saavy it was perhaps  a pipe dream for the past  but it seems plausable, for someone with the know how-- any thoughts, I have visited the Logos pro videos. Thank you.

Matt, are you wanting to export the entirety of the Biblical text with the "buts" highlighted, or only the verses that contain the word? If the latter, a simple search followed by print/export should do the trick. If the former, you'll probably just want to create a Visual Filter.

Please reply back if you have any further questions or clarification!

The entire text of bibe with the "but" s highlighted, just the biblical text, Chapter/verse and it would be EXPORTED then presented back to him as an editable document, where he could later edit it or comment on it,  Does that answer your question? A passage list merged with every other passage from Gen-RevI am a novice on this, thankfully he is still preaching so I have a while as long (as he gives us) Lord willing to work on it.

Basic packages are free => Basic and => Verbum Basic that enable Visual Filter highlighting of "but" in bibles: e.g. KJV

Caveat for copying into Word is careful selection of highlighting since Logos and Verbum have more highlighting options.

Heard last week of a preacher who read Psalm 103:14 "He knows that we are but dust" when a little girl asked her hard-of-hearing grandmother in a loud "whisper", "what is butt dust?" I had shared this story with a few people before including that reference in my message on Sunday. I used a translation that omits the "but", but that did not keep some smiles from appearing on the faces of congregants who had heard the story.

I am including a snipping of the Logos search that indicates which translations include the "but" to keep this post relevant to Forum guidelines.

This is exactly the type of report on the visual filter to produce the text.  THANK YOU I have been able to produce a 100-page doc and got it to pdf. However, I think there is a learning curve thing on my end. is there a switch or parameter or that would stop the printing of this document to 100 pages? or is that a limitation of the print export capability of Logos 7. or is this simply what is most likely my inexperience and'driver error"? thank you Christmas is getting close.Sad the end result is the limit of my export was 100 pages perhaps 199 pages if the file is considered double sided output

It is a limitation (I assume put into place on behalf of publishers' interest which don't want users excerpting 100% of large books). There's no switch or setting to go beyond 100 - but the functionality takes into account font size and paper size - i.e. more text fits into 100 A2 pages at very small font size  than into 100 A5 pages at very large font size. The actual printing done from Word or Adobe to your actual paper may vary from the 100.
