That's great, Bill, but where can we get the Smart Tag again. Through the process of canceling and then later re-opening MS Office, I lost mine and can't find where to get it back.

Michael, I would refer you to Mark's comment/link above on how to set it up.

One of the things that is often overlooked with Smart tags is that Logos has to be open and running for the Smart Tags to work. I just went to MS Word and tried it without Logos running in the background and the Scripture replacement for the reference did not work (as I suspected it wouldn't), however, when I have Logos running in the background, the Smart tags work as expected. They are great time savers.

I cannot find,in the link that Mark gave, how to set up Word to accept the Replace with Passage option.

Michael, it has been so long since I first enabled Smart Tags that I have forgotten exactly how and where I got that information. When you first open MS Word, scroll down to the "options" tag and open to a dialogue box that has several options. The option labeled "Add-ins" opens to a list of those available for use, if Logos Bible Software is not listed, then that option needs to be made available (and unfortunately that is the part that I cannot remember when/where/how I was able to accomplish that). Hopefully, someone else might be better at recalling how to do that.

I guess that I've been very fortunate to not losing that availability.
