A few years back when I was still using Logos 3, there was a feature that allowed you to take much of the content from the passage guide, choose what content you wanted, and then print it as a sort of lesson plan or study guide that you could hand out in a Bible study group.

You can sort of do that in Logos 5, but I don't see a way to expand the content from that guide so that it's not abbreviated when printed.  For example, under the "Commentaries" section, all you currently get is the names of the commentaries as hyperlinks, but what I want to print is the content from those commentaries.  Another example is the "Biblical People" section.  You get little thumbnails when printed but I want to be able to choose certain images (e.g. a family tree) and expand it when printed.

I supposed I could copy and paste content into Word to format it like what I'm talking about, but I thought this was something that Logos 3 used to do.  Is this something that will be possible in some upcoming feature update?

Crickets chirping.

Wow.  I'm alone in wanting to be able to restore the feature for printing out complete (i.e. non-hyperlink text) Logos content without having to copy and paste it by hand into Word?

I never used Libronix, so I can't speak about past features. In L5, you can print out "complete Logos content." I don't know what you mean by "non-hyperlink text."

To print something out, use the resource's menu (book cover) and use "print/export."

I'm referring to the guide content (e.g. Passage Guide).  Try printing one of those out and handing it out to someone in a Bible study and see how (not) helpful it is.

I think this thread speaks about the feature you are looking for and the last post includes a link to Bob's insights into the issue.

That's the feature!  Thanks for helping me find the name of it as well as what the state of it is.
