Logos has the potential to be great for copy/pasting scripture passages into forums, blogs, and websites, but so far as I can tell there's no way to get the "Copy Bible Verses" tool to give me raw HTML or Markdown.

This would be a wonderful feature (and pretty easy to implement too!) for anyone who regularly participates in online theological discussions. I'd love to see it as an additional dropdown option alongside the varieties of word processors already available.

Would anybody else find this useful?

I can see how it could be useful, though I probably wouldn't use it.

I would have expected this option to do what you're looking for, but it apparently doesn't. Seems to just spit out plain text.

A workaround would be to copy/paste into Word and then Save As HTML.

Interesting, your list is much longer than mine. I don't even have HTML Editor as an option, nor "other"! Is this a Mac/Windows thing? I'm on a OS X.

Based on the syntax used for making custom templates, I wouldn't be surprised if the tool actually generates HTML and then parses it to come up with the various output options. So it should be fairly simple to just get the un-parsed output.

Markdown would be especially useful. A lot of forums these days (e.g. Reddit) use it as a simple and user-friendly markup language.

I'm on Windows 7. That could be the difference.

You won't see this in Logos 5 though, as Logos 6 is the only version that is being enhanced.

Bring this discussion to the General forum and also make the suggestion in UserVoice.

I think Dave meant the Suggestions forum (second from the top, right below General, on the main Forums page).

Well, No! If a suggestion is on UserVoice the General forum is the best place for discussion & getting votes.

Oh, OK. I thought other users read the Suggestions forum too and commented on things there. Maybe we have different ideas of what the General forum is for. But sure, this would be fine to go there.
