Hi, I'm using Logos 4.1 SR-3 (v4.10.4.5986). In this latest version, I can no longer select text in the Text Comparison window (I usually select the texts to copy to MS Word for my study). Is this an intended feature or a bug? I can still copy the texts using Ctrl-P (Print/Export) -> Clipboard, though that's a few extra steps.

Also, is there some way that text copied to the clipboard (from Text Comparison) can be made to keep the Logos font settings? Once pasted in MS-Word, it seems to default to Times New Roman, and that makes original language verses look rather awful. I have to manually change the original language bits to Gentium/SBL Hebrew. Again, not a huge problem, just that it takes a few extra clicks in MS-Word to rectify. =P

It's not stated in the Release Notes) and I've never tried to copy the text before. If you edit your thread title (after right clicking More)  to be Bug:Cannot select text.......it should attract attention from Logos.

Hi Martin ~ The context menu items (Select All and Copy) are not working correctly in 4.1; they are grayed out. This problem has been reported to development. As a workaround, you'll have to click the link in the comparison tool to open the Bible to that location and copy from there.

Edit: I've added this to the known issues in the 4.1 release notes.

Try starting your selecting one line before what you want - CAN NOT start on version name

Selecting all (ctrl-a then ctrl-c)
