Hey Bro. Mike, 

Didn't expect to see you here! I do agree with you that that would be the ideal solution -- Ive also posted on the forums of some of the devices that are "in the pike" to see if they would make sure they support running logos. Unfortunately, I've seen more than one such device fall by the wayside before reaching production in the past several years. So I keep hoping for one or the other. Praying for you all in Greenpoint.

I may have missed it, but I would welcome this especially if it allowed me to just "export in kindle format" and not necessarily require me plugging my kindle in. I can email books to my kindle.

I use the kindle reader on my iPad and on my desktop frequently and I'd love to be able to read there. My old iPad is really slow when running the verbum app and I'd love to be able to use the kindle reader on it instead when I'm simply reading through something like a Robert E. Brown text.

I would be much more willing to buy Logos titles if I could export them to my Kindle. I don't like being restricted to a single platform.

Welcome to the forums Michael! Smile

Although this feature would be very nice (I hope it comes!), I wanted to point out that you can already export to Kindle. Mark Barnes wrote an excellent guide found HERE.

Amazon has "print to kindle" function that can be used to export to kindle rather conveniently. 

The installation file for PC is here http://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle/pc

For Macs http://www.amazon.com/gp/sendtokindle/mac

Although the printer appears in the list from the print/export dialog in Logos, I was not able to send directly to kindle from there. What worked for me was the 2 steps method: (1) From the Logos print/export pane: save as file (doc, docx and rtf are supported). (2) Right click on the saved file and click on "send to kindle". In the dialog that appears, pick the device where you want it sent (if you have more than one). Done.

Obviously this works too for other documents on the pc/mac (unconverted pbb files).

I have not had the chance to test extensively. If someone finds a way to print directly from the Logos print/export, I'm sure many would like to know.

Almost 1.5 years after this thread started, it is here!

5.3 Beta 3 has the feature. I have tried it, but my Kindle is home so I have yet so see the results.

Thanks Logos! My most-requested feature is now a reality.

The results are perfect IMHO.  I am now able to take some of the more casual books along for a read.

If you make highlights on a kindle do they show up back in Logos or vice versa?

No, the personal archive documents will sync across Kindles and Kindle apps but not across to Logos and back.

As David said, No. However you can access your highlights at https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights and manually recreate them if you feel the need.

You can also access your Kindle highlights by plugging in and navigating to \documents\My Clippings.txt

That file contains all your highlights.

This is actually better! I can export my highlights to Evernote from here! With Logos highlights, I'm only able to view the truncated highlight.

What about Scripture hyperlinks??

Yes, Scripture hyperlinks are there.  when you click on the scripture, it will take you to the scripture. Same thing with footnotes.

Strange thing is that the table of contents is not hyper-linked, but if you go to the very beginning of the book, after the book cover you'll see another table of contents which is hyper-linked.

Great! Thanks David. I'm hopeful they will straighten out the rest of the hyperlinking.

Now, if you don't mind switching to the Beta channel. I have been using 5.3 since Beta 1 with zero issues.

Otherwise, who knows? I would guess 3-8 weeks. But I have no idea, really.
