If I highlight some text in a resource, right click and select copy, then paste that text in a Logos Note or some other program, the accompanying resource citation is not in the form I set in the Logos Program Settings. This is a nuisance. If I copy and paste in an outside document where I keep my research, I have to go back, select Information and copy the citation in the format I want and replace the citation the copy/paste placed in my research notes. Is this a problem for anyone else?

I'm using Logos Bible Software 5.2 SR-5 (5.2.0.0121)

Have a great day,
jmac

Yes, I have the same problem. No solution yet?

I haven't noticed this particular issue, but the citation part of L5 leaves a lot to be desired...

I was JUST noticing the same! I was trying to copy and paste from a couple commentaries onto a Pages document and there was no citation along with it.  Funny because I was specifically hoping it would cite because I wanted the family member I was going to send it to would see the source the info came with.

I believe that particular issue is an actual limitation with Pages, there was another thread somewhere talking about it.

Thanks! I'll give it a read and then try to copy/paste into word instead. I thought I remembered being able to directly copy text into pages within logos? I'll read your link and see what answers I find.  Appreciate the help!
