Can someone please tell me why the Kregel Charts are not able to be exported to Word and keep their original form?  I almost feel like the Kregel charts were a waste of money now. Step up your game, Faithlife!

Worked fine for me.  I just copied and pasted with Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V into Word.  Font, font format, and table all came over just fine.

All I did extra was:

(1) select the entire table from the top left corner of the table, and add "all borders" from the table design ribbon (about 2-3 seconds of time), and

(2) adjusted the left and right indents of each column (about 30 seconds total).

For me personally, I would hardly consider that something entailing Faithlife's lack of game or a waste of money.  Presumably you're not trying to copy and paste numerous tables at a time.  But even then, we're only talking a few extra minutes of adding "all borders" to each table and adjusting left and right indents for each column.

I'm trying to add a picture but not sure if it'll come through for some reason...

Does not work for me. Such a shame.

Can you post screenshots showing their original form and how they appear when you export them?

I think this is what Karl is referring too. I used CTRL + C and CTRL + V to paste into Word, the GIF picks up from there:

Granted, it's not perfect in formatting, but it is workable. Alternatively, you could try to print/export the pages of the chart you want. 

P.S. Thanks for bringing these resources to my attention! I had no idea they existed and I'm always doing these kinds of charts myself... Today I was working on a chart comparing Peter Abelard's commentary on Romans to Thomas Schreiner's.

You can skip steps 4 to 6 if in step 3 you open the HTML file in Word, because Word can open HTML files directly. You might want to Save As a Word document after that step, though.

Programming-wise, and adding to David and Rosie, moving structure from one app to another is an iffy game across changing versions. An intermediate language that does a 'lock' seems the solution (here, HTML). In my cross-Bible-softwares, that's how I ship to Word to PBs. But most users would expect copying, not a programming language. Ergo the coders at Bellingham Central.
