When I print / export a PBB from Logos the links to bible verses would appear in the document. Now that functionality seems to no longer exist. Is this a change or just some sort of glitch?

Claude, I just tried this with two of my PBs. I used print/export and then "Send to New Document (Word)" and the bible references that were in the PB carried over to the resulting Word documents as ref.ly-links. Is that the functionality you were expecting?

If yes, this works for me in Logos 8.17 Beta 1, but I don't think this has changed at all in the recent past. Maybe check the Logos settings - they may control this functionality. I have

It is the functionality I was expecting. I have the same settings. What I do not have is Logos 8.17 Beta 1. If I understand correctly the latest release to users is 8.16.0.0002, which I have and no longer sends over ref.ly-links. Is there a time frame as to when Logos 8.17 Beta 1 will actually be released?

I would expect the standard six week cycle.

Hi Claude

I've just tried this in Logos 8.16 and it worked fine.

So I don't think you should expect 8.17 to fix this - we need to look further at why it is not working.

Are you able to upload a short extract from the personal book that demonstrates the problem?

I don't think that Logos 8.17 will solve your issue. This functionality hasn't changed for a long time, and release notes don't indicate that there's anything new in this area. Users who run a 8.16 stable version might be able to confirm one way or the other. EDIT: I see that Graham did so while I was typing /EDIT

Maybe something else is going on. You aren't on a Mac machine, are you? Can you share a portion of the PBB you compiled and the Word document you exported? Any screenshots that show the PBB in Logos, indicating where and how the bible verses are active?

I am using Windows 10 Pro i5-3470 CPU @3.20 GHz 3.20GHz 16-0 GB (15.9) usable with 2TB, which I purchased specifically for use with Logos.

Here is a sample:

Daily Bible Readings

MONDAY During Trouble, Maintain Hope in God (Psalm 43)

TUESDAY Benjamin Sent to Joseph with Gifts (Genesis 43:1-15)

WEDNESDAY Stolen Cup Found in Benjamin's Grain (Genesis 44:1-13)

THURSDAY Brothers Offer to Become Slaves to Joseph (Genesis 44:14-17)

FRIDAY Judah Pleads with Joseph for Benjamin (Genesis 44:18-26)

SATURDAY Jacob Will Die Without Seeing Benjamin (Genesis 44:27-34)

SUNDAY Joseph and His Brothers Reconcile Their Differences (Genesis 45:1-15)

Except when I post to Word from Logos no links? This was posted from the document.  Thanks for your help.

Upload a sample of your docx file, as this is more helpful.

I exported a PB to Word 365 and got ref.ly links as expected (Windows 10).

By the way, let me say that I really appreciate you, heavyweights all, looking at my issue. Your advice over the years has been invaluable when trying to get the most out of this software. Grace and peace be upon all of you and your families.

I compiled this and the links were active in the Personal Book. When exported to a new Word document, the links were ref.ly, needing CTRL+Click to open in Biblia.com.

Same here. The Word file exported from Logos has all the ref.ly links opening biblia.com when followed
