  I'm trying to get set up for a manuscript study and that requires scripture verses simply be numbered on the page. No verse numbers, no references or other markings.  Just the text of the Bible with line numbers.  Is there any way to do this from Logos 4?  I would like to use ESV for this, but there are loads of footnotes etc. that need to manually deleted.

I'm using Word but not locked in-- I just need to print this out for 10 or so people.

Thanks for any help.

Blessings,

David

That's  little unclear to me.

You can customize the Copy Bible verses tool in a number of ways. Here is an example using the following settings:

(I'm using L5, but it works the same way in L4.)

Here's a sample of what that produces when pasted into MS Word:

You'd have to add line numbers in MS Word if what you mean is a number to the left of each line of text.

Not sure what you mean by line numbers. Here's a copy verse style that does not include verse numbers, you could leave out the verse ref, but then you'd have to note manually on the page the reference or verse numbers you want to include (this is the style I use most often):

Begins after this line:
%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=Header
<p><i>

=ForEachVerse
[VerseText]

=Footer
</i> ([ShortPassageRef])</p>
Ends before this line (copy what's in between).

This works great.  Thanks for pointing out the Copy Bible Verses tool.  I thought I had looked that over, but has missed it.  This method accomplishes what I need.  Thanks Guys!  Awesome response time.

Blessings!

I got this figured out.  Man, Logos 4 is nice.  I love the ability to customize the print layout and formats.  And, once I have the set done, it's saved for future use.  A real time saver.

Blessings,
