This looks like an awesome feature, but unfortunately I'm not seeing this in my system preferences. What version of OS X are you guys running? I have Snow Leopard. Maybe I have something else shut off or on that is preventing this feature from working.

What application are you using?  We've already established that it won't work with MS Office for Mac 2008.

I had to select the ref first before the shortcuts appeared and worked. At first I couldn't figure out it why it was intermitten before I realized that I had to have the ref selected .

On Leopard, you may need to reboot, the services menu is generated from your applications when you log onto your computer.

On Snow Leopard, you can update your Services from the System Preferences (or rebooting)

System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Click on 'Services' then disable and reenable

Reboot if disable/enable does not work

Rebooting the computer worked for me. Thanks, Glenn.

Soli Deo Gloria,

I am using OS X 10.6.6 and Logos Bible Software 4.2a SR-1 (4.21.5.0790).  Other than turning it on in the services menu I didn't have to do anything... to get it to work.

I do also have parellels and Logos on there, but this doesn't get activated when I use it.

It looks like it works inside facebook comment boxes as well!

Found a conflict in Chrome.  Shift-Command-J brings up the downloads window.  Any ideas how to change keyboard shortcuts for Chrome?

Apparently, it's not possible at this time.

If an app has a conflicting shortcut, it wins.

The Services menu will strip the shortcut keystroke. You may be able to adjust your system keyboard preferences, but I suspect some other app will potentially win that race too. You can always use the mouse to select the services menu.

Sorta like digital rock-paper-scissors!  I figured I would have to attempt to find an alternative shortcut.  Thanks (again!).

This is a great little feature in the new Mac release.  In an y application that lets you use the services menu (e.g. pages) just highlight a verse reference such as Mark 1 and click [Shift] [cmd] e.  Viola!  The verse/s appear as though you had used the copy bible verses function, although with ludicrously fast speed!

This is is going to be a great time saver.  It is worth noting it may not be available/turned on by default.  It wasn't for me.  To get it working go to your Mac system preferences, select keyboard.  Choose Services from the box on the left.  Then scroll down the list on the right until you see Copy Bible Verses & Replace with Passage.  Click them to make them active.

I've attached a picture that may help.  Thanks Mac Devs for this addition

That's weird. I don't have those options in my control panel. Did you have to manually add them? Thanks.

 

I fixed this by rebooting. These options are now available.

Garry, I am having the same problem:  activating Parallels and Logos (PC), bypassing Logos (Mac).  If you find a solution, I would to love to hear it.

Ditto for me - launches Logos 4 through Parallels rather than my Logos 4 MAC install.

 

2015 13" MacBook Pro - 2 Ghz Intel i7 - 16 GB RAM - 500GB SSD - 2018 iMac Pro - 3.2GHz 8-core Xeon - both systems running OS 10.14.3 (Mojave)

I might add that in my case launching Parallels and then Logos4 (PC) occurs even though I have uninstalled Logos4 (PC), so I constantly get an error message once Parallels has loaded in Coherence mode.

Hmmm, I tried the copy Bible verse feature, but it brought up the Online Bible, which I don't even have anymore. It was just blank. How do I get it to switch over to Logos instead?

We are looking into this issue and will update this thread when we have more information.

Follow up:   Garry, Mark, and Michael -- What version of Mac OS are you running and what version of Parallels?  I'm not able to reproduce the problem with Mac 10.6.6 and Parallels 6.0.11994.
