When a collection is open and the list of books in that collection appears, and your mouse is over a book in the list, information appears in a box with the picture of the book. Could you please make it possible to export this information for printing purposes?

I thought this would be possible, either from Library or from the resource itself -- but it seems not.

Then I thought I would suggest you vote for Copy from anywhere (Guides, Search Results, Resource Info panel) -- but it turned out Logos has tagged that as 'Completed'...SurpriseHmmConfused

Doesn't look completed to me...

If I right-click in Resource Information on Windows, I get a "Copy" command, which copies it to the clipboard.

the picture of the book

Sorry, I didn't read your original post very closely. The picture is not copyable.

So do I on Mac, now that you tell me about it.Smile 

The question is, how is anyone going to figure that out, without being told about it, when a) the text isn't selectable, as text normally is when it can be copied, b) there's a little 'Copy' link further down by Citation, but none up here, and c) it only works in the resource, not in Library (or Collections, where the OP saw the text)?

Great call. I agree. Besides I do not want to copy and paste one at a time I want to export all this information. I have our 3600 resources and I honestly can not keep up with this information, and would like something to thumb thru so I can utilize what I do have in Logos. Cope and paste will not get me there.

Bradley, one thing we here in the forums request a copy of all the time (especially this last month with the 'prioritized Bible doesn't update' bug going on) is the resource Support info. I just tried right-clicking on it, but no 'Copy' popup appeared. Nor is there a 'Copy' button. Nor is it selectable. We really need to be able to copy this without having to go through all the trouble of a screenshot.

On Windows, I can select it and copy but when I paste it into the forum (as below) it is formatted slightly strangely and so I normally end up doing a screenshot.

Better support for this would be really helpful

So we have yet another feature parity bug. Thanks for letting me know.

A perfect illustration of how confusing this is to users: Is there any easy way to copy out the text of the book description field?

Logos 5.1 Beta 9 on OS X 10.8.3 still lacks Copy and Select All right click for Support Info.

Logos 5.1a RC 3 on OS X 10.8.4 still cannot copy Resource support information.  Wonder about adding a Copy button like Citation ?
