I have two questions:

1) When I copy in any paragraph style, there are two spaces after every verse. I do not like this at all. Is there a way to get rid of that and only have one space after each verse?

2) Most English versions translate YHWH as "LORD" in all caps. Is there any way to get copy verses to either substitute "LORD" with simply "Lord?" Or even "YHWH or Yahweh?" 

I know why translations do it and do not wish to debate. I only want to know if it is possible to substitute.

2) You can't get CBV to substitute. Choose an appropriate bible instead e.g. Lexham English Bible uses Yahweh, Living Bible uses Lord, Jehovah

1) Try this style

%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation
%UseBibleParagraphs

=Header
<p>[FullPassageRef] ([Version])</p>

=ForEachVerse
<p>[ChapterNum]:[VerseNum]<tab>[VerseText]</p>

No way to do it in Logos, but if you're copying to paste into Word, you can do it once it's pasted. You could even record a macro that does it and assign it to a keystroke so it's just one swift press to do the conversion after you've pasted.

Just replace LORD with small caps formatting with Lord without any formatting. (To search for formatting in Word, click Format > Font in the Replace dialog.)

Recording a macro assigned to a keystroke is a bit more involved, but you only have to do it once and then you're set up. Let me know if you'd like instructions. There are probably plenty of places online that explain how to do it that you can find using Google.
