Currently if I highlight a passage in any resource, right click, and choose to share the quotation with, say, Facebook - all that generates is a biblia link to the book.  Well that's nice, but shouldn't the quote I highlighted be pasted into the comment? 

Please paste the highlighted passage/ quotation into the comment field when sharing with Facebook the way you do when sharing with Twitter.

Hi TC

It looks as though this is (at least, was) a Facebook restriction - http://community.logos.com/forums/p/49036/369426.aspx#369426

Great memory Graham.  I had forgotten that I ever read that.

Copy and Paste works. At least for me it does. I don't use the share on facebook button, I simply copy and paste into my status. It cites it and everything. Smile

As far as FB is concerned, this is what I do (and I use it quite often).

I have 2 custom "Copy Bible Verse" styles for Facebook. One for multi-verse and one for single-verse. Most of the time, I use the multi-verse regardless of the number of verses I post. Once the verse is selected, just use the "Show Copy Bible Verses" and "Copy" from Logos. On Facebook, just create a post and paste (CTRL V).

The Multi-Verse Style

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=Header
<p>[FullPassageRef] ([Version])</p>

=ForEachVerse
<p>[VerseNum] [VerseText]</p>

The Single-Verse Style

%NoCharFormatting
%NoRedLetter
%NoFootnotes
%NoCitation

=Header
<p>[FullPassageRef] ([Version])</p>

=ForEachVerse
<p>[VerseText]</p>
