I'm giving Logos' sermon editor a try after having used Word for years. One feature I've enjoyed with Word is when I drop a quote from Logos directly into Word, it automatically footnotes it for me. That way I have the bibliographic info close at hand, but it's not mixed in with my sermon text. So far I haven't figured out a way for the resources to automatically "hide" in some way when I quote them, thereby cluttering up my preaching manuscript (if that makes sense). Obviously, I still want to know the source, but is there a way to footnote it or hyperlink it in some way so as not to have to manually remove it, reduce its size, etc.? I hope this makes sense. I've included a picture of my notes to give you an idea of what I mean.

Hi Jeremiah

It makes total sense but I'm afraid is not currently supported in the Sermon Builder.

When you paste text in from a Logos resource, it should put it in a special quotation block with a link to the source. I'm curious why that didn't happen for you.

If you'd like to support requests for manual footnotes and hyperlinking, you can vote on these:

Thank you for getting back with me. Yes, that quotation block shows up about half the time for me. Not sure why.

I'm actually having the opposite problem, my footnotes are no longer appearing in Sermon Editor at all. I used to just reformat them when exporting into word, but now when I copy and paste something into SE I don't get any footnotes and have to manually input them. Is this just me or did that go away?

As Bradley points out above:

Is this what you are not seeing anymore?

I've seen it a couple of times but 99% no. Before L9 it did it every time, just not in the quotation block (which I don't like at all and have to reformat in Word). My preference would be to see it footnote like it does with Word but I'm sure that's a bridge too far.
