The title says it all. If I use the Replace With Passage service in Mac the passage is not inserted with the proper formatting. In my particular case, the verses are not superscript as they should be according to my format. If I manually go over to Logos and copy the verses using the CopyBibleVerses panel then they are formatted correctly.

Then by all means, include the title in the thread! But alas, it didn't. What OS are you running? What program?

I'm on 10.9. In my case, it's a problem for me in Microsoft Word. This is a long running bug though, it's not something new.

It is fundamentally a limitation of Word smart tags that you only get plain text. Logos could improve it but Microsoft has been burying Smart Tags with each release since Office 2007!

You did not read my post. I'm using Mac, not Windows. I'm not using "Smart Tags."

Could someone from Logos comment as to whether there is any plan to fix this bug?

Anyone know the proper way to report this as a Logos bug?

"Replace with Passage" in MS Word is a Smart Tag action in Office 2007. It may be called something else in later versions

The OP is talking about the "Replace with Passage" service on Mac OS X, which is unrelated to Office Smart Tags.

Replace with passage is working OK here, superscript or subscript.  Are you using any special formatting other than the standard?  The only problem I've had with the passage replacement service is that it doesn't pay attention to the font I've designated. It always defaults to Helvetica.

I'm using a 2013 iMac with Mavericks and MS Word 2011 for the Mac.

Charles,

This is the code for my style:

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

<p>
=ForEachVerse
<sup>[VerseNum]</sup>[VerseText]
=Footer
([FullPassageRef] [Version])
</p>

When I paste, the superscripts do not come across. I'm on Mavericks using MS Word 2011 as well. I'd be curious what your style looks like.

Wouldn't the first line in your code preclude the superscripts from coming through?

I use Verbum with an 8-Core Mac Pro (2013) and a MacBook Pro (2017)

Yes, but the <sup> formatting should ensure superscript text for the verse number.

BTW you have responded to an old post.

This is an old post, but unfortunately this bug persists. It is still a problem in the current version of Logos. I wish they would fix it because it would save me from having to switch to Logos and use the CBV tool rather than being able to insert verses directly in Word. I'm not quick sure why this one hasn't been fixed. I know it's at least 2 years old and I'm guessing it's a simple fix.

Re-post the thread in Logos 6 and provide some screenshots that illustrate it.
