I'd like to print the TOC of the Battles translation of Calvin's Institutes.

I've tried to highlight them to copy paste, some other things.. I can't figure this one out.

Anyone have a suggestion?

Two ways:

1. The preferred method from within Logos: select or scroll to the TOC, then click the panel menu icon (upper left of the Battles resource) and choose Print/Export...

Make sure the Contents checkbox (and only the Contents checkbox) is checked, and then click Print.

2. An alternative: You were on the right track with highlight, copy/paste. You can copy/paste to Word and then print from there:

(highlight, then Ctrl+C, then switch to Word and Ctrl+V) -- substitute Cmd where I said Ctrl if you're on a Mac

Yes, thank you. 

However, this isn't entirely what I meant. 

So I did see the ability to print the 'Contents' but this is only showing the Chapter numbers and titles, and passes by each section under the Chapters. For instance Book 1, Chapter IX's title is Fanatics, Abandoning Scripture and Flying over to Revelation etc. Then, 1. The Fanatics Wrongly Appeal to the Holy Spirit, then 2. .. etc. follows.

Is there a way, besides an elaborate series of screen shots, to simply copy the entire TOC? I'd love to get all of these sections and titles together.

Ah, now I see. You're looking to copy the multi-level TOC that appears in the TOC panel to the left (with all of the sub-sections expanded), not the "Contents" that is within the resource itself.

Unfortunately there is no way to copy that from within Logos. As you've suggested, the only workaround would be an "elaborate series of screen shots" but I'm guessing you want the actual text, not just images of it.

I use a great little tool called ABBYY Screenshot Reader which lets you select a rectangle on the screen and grabs all the text from it using OCR. It costs about $30 and it is well worth it because I use it all the time. It depends on how badly you want this and whether you think you'd use such a utility program again, but I do highly recommend it.

It's not always 100% perfect, and you do need to edit the results to put back in the indentation, for example, and occasionally some carriage returns, but it does a pretty good job on this first page worth of the TOC (a few minor OCR errors, easily fixable). You would, of course, have to page through the whole TOC, expanding all the sections manually yourself, and then screengrab each page worth using this tool. It leaves its results in the clipboard, and then you can paste to Word or wherever.

This works for books but not for the media course materials.  Is there a way to print the Table of Contents for the Courses?  Thanks for your help.
