[This chain started back with Logos 6, where I originally posted this message.]

This behavior is still bugging me, and I finally have the right combination of time, motivation and examples to follow up.

I think Logos resources are typically tagged with pop-ups generated from the tables of abbreviations and sigla of the particular resource.  These pop-ups turn into footnotes when text is copied-and-pasted into a Word document.

There was a time (now many years ago) when Logos would have been smart enough to produce only a single footnote occurrence for such pop-ups.  If the same pop-up appeared multiple times in the same block of copied text, Logos would generate a footnote for the first one and ignore all the others.

E.g., there would have been only one footnote for "[" and "]" in the first image, or for "BH" in the second, or for "n.", "adj." and "e.g." in the third.

When I copy with footnotes, I definitely want all the true footnotes, and often I need a few of the pop-ups explaining abbreviations and symbols.  I'm willing to delete manually the pop-up footnotes that I don't need, but it is a big time-waster to delete the same pop-up footnote again and again throughout a Word document.

Any other long-term users out there who copy-and-paste to Word frequently, with my same memory?

Any hope for (a return to) the helpful elimination of redundancy in footnotes generated from abbreviation and sigla pop-ups?

I replied in the other thread and said:

This issue is discussed in https://community.logos.com/forums/p/131635/856782.aspx - and as far as I can see there isn't a way to do what you are looking for. 

But I agree that there should be!
