Bob Rockhill:

Hmmm, I tried the copy Bible verse feature, but it brought up the Online Bible, which I don't even have anymore. It was just blank. How do I get it to switch over to Logos instead?

Just a quick observation on Online Bible (which is brilliant, but not as all encompassing as Logos).

It has a Command-7 feature which allows the verse(s) selected (even if only part is selected) and then Online Bible offers a list of open apps for destination, to which your selection then switches to your cursor location in that app. A simple paste completes the process.

So what you are experiencing is the Command-7 still being attached to Online Bible. 

As reported above, changing the system settings in System Preferences should resolve this to your choice.

We are looking into this issue and will update this thread when we have more information.

Follow up:   Garry, Mark, and Michael -- What version of Mac OS are you running and what version of Parallels?  I'm not able to reproduce the problem with Mac 10.6.6 and Parallels 6.0.11994. 

Melissa, I have the same versions of Mac (10.6.6) and Parallels (6.0.11994).

I have the same version of Mac (10.6.6) and Parallels (6.0.11994) and the same problem with Logos opening in Parallels instead of Logos4Mac--even when the Mac version is already open and Parallels is not.

Thanks for getting back to me. Are you sharing any folders Logos 4 uses on the Mac with your Windows VM or vice versa?

As far as I can tell (but I confess I'm quite illiterate in these matters :-)), I am not sharing any Logos 4Mac folders with my Windows VM.

Not that I know of.

I know Fusion has the option to launch Windows apps from within the Mac, sort of like if you click to open a wmv file on your Mac it will launch Windows Media Player in the VM and send the file there. I assume Parallels has something similar. Try turning that off?

Yes, thank you Chris. I thought I had found a setting like that in Parallels for my VM, but it was enabled and it was still working correctly for me, so there must be another setting I didn't find.

I'm aware of two different settings - one to share files with the VM, another to actually launch applications in the VM. You can share files without any problem, but launching applications can be an annoyance if one doesn't realize it's enabled.

That worked for me!  For the benefit of others, here's the steps I took to turn that option off:

Once Parallels (Windows) is loaded, on the Parallels menu bar select Virtual Machine, then Configure...

Select Applications from the menu on the left, and then make sure Share Windows Applications With Mac is unchecked.

Thanks, everyone, for the help!

It does not work..and even if it did, not sure it is that much of time saver than highlighting, command c, command tab, command v...which all takes about a second anyways.

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about version of Logos (or Verbum), Pages, and OS X.

Can replicate Copy Bible Verse and Replace with Passage services not working in Pages 4.1 and Pages 5.2.2 for Verbum 5.3 Beta 1 on OS X 10.10 Public Beta 3.

I'm running Mac OS 10.10 with Pages 5.5 and it only works for me if I 1] highlight a text [so I type in Ps 23], 2] go to the menu and 3] manually select from Pages/ Services / Replace with Passage from this menu. There is no shortcut listed there now. I disabled Copy Bible verses. But even when I had them both enabled I could not use the short cut for Replace with Text. Strange. 

EDIT: Update - I changed the shortcut and now it works :)

I'm using IMac with Yosemite OS. I checked both "Copy Bible Verses" and "Replace with Passage." Opened Pages in my Mac, typed Mark 1, then highlighted the passage and held down shift/command p, (nothing happened) then tried shift/command e (nothing happened)

Any suggestions? Thanks

Ron, that worked, have you found a shortcut, yet?

Sometimes what happens is that the shortcuts conflict with other shortcuts. Shift-Command P is (at least in Pages) the shortcut for "Page Setup." Try assigning a different shortcut.

I tend to use more Control-Option-Command shortcuts because they are still easy to type, and rarely used by other apps. e.g., my shortcut for "replace with passage" is Control-Option-Command-B.
