Hi all, I need to change the default font that Logos uses to export scriptural passages into PowerPoint. I find the default settings to be utterly useless for my needs. I know that I can change the font once it has exported the text, but that requires a good bit of extra work and simply put, there are other software packages that would work better if I cannot find a workaround with Logos.

So...how do I set up a new style in  Logos with the size, kind and color of font that I need for PowerPoint? Thanks!

Unfortunately you cannot.

Ouch...so with Logos, I have to go and edit each individual slide? That would take forever.

That is true. I can't think of a fast way to change font, size, and color all in one fell swoop in PowerPoint, but I'm not a power user.

I know I'm digging up an older thread here, but has anything changed with all the recent updates? We can change how Logos exports to Word, but not to PowerPoint, why not?

Logos, would you please consider giving us this option in a future upgrade? Right now, I'm having to use another companies Bible software to complete my weekly PowerPoints.

I am just starting to use Power point (2010) for Sunday school class. I don't export, but Copy and past. I did not like the export results. How doese the export feature speed up preparation of your powerpoints?

Sorry J.D. about the delay in replying. When in Microsoft Word, you can hit ctrl, alt and "b" on your keyboard to bring up a specialized Logos window that will allow you to paste verses into Word. However, when using this feature to work in PowerPoint, the text that is pasted there is a very small (unreadable in a presentation) font. My desire is that I would be able to set what kind of text shows up in PowerPoint (style, size and color). As of right now, there is no way to do this without changing every single slide in PowerPoint and obviously that approach takes entirely too long.About the only solution that I have currently found is to drag and drop from Logos and then hand type the titles into each slide. Or, paste the text into Word (which will also allow me to create my titles - biblical references - the way I want) and then drag and drop into PowerPoint.
