I was fond of being able to click on a highlighted scripture in Logos 5 and it would appear in the information tab.  Then I could click on the passage, click COPY and then I could paste it on my Word document.  Can I do this in Logos 6?

Hi John - and welcome to the forums

John Paul Watson:
I was fond of being able to click on a highlighted scripture in Logos 5 and it would appear in the information tab.

I'm sorry but I don't understand this. The "Information" tool provides information about individual words not whole passages and doesn't work in the way you describe.

Are you aware you can simply select a passage in a Bible and copy / paste using standard OS controls (Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V) on Windows?

Or are you looking for something else?

I use commentaries with scriptural references.  In Logos 5, when I hovered over it with my mouse, the Information box in Logos 5 would display the passage and the reference.  I could then highlight that reference, click on the Copy tab at the top of the Information window and paste into my Word document.

I would like to have that ability to do the same - copy and paste - scripture references from Logos 6.  I just downloaded it so I am definitely a rookie with Logos 6

I believe you are referring to the use of other references as shown in the wiki https://wiki.logos.com/Information . I'm not sure whether this is an intentional change or a bug.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Try this instead:

  1. Right-click the reference in the resource panel.
  2. On the context menu, select the reference on the right-hand side. (This will usually be right after the first horizontal line and will say "Bible" next to it.)
  3. On the top-left of the context menu, select "Copy". This will copy the text of that reference to the clipboard in your most-recently-used Copy Bible Verses style.

You don't need the Information panel open for this; hopefully it might even be a little faster.
