This isn't possible since Word can't support the variety of markup styles that Logos has.  PDF is the best option for that.

But newer versions of Word allow you to open PDFs (right-click the file, "open with") and I think that will keep those highlights intact.

I think you are mistaken. If Word doesn't have the ability to utilize the highlighting style, it doesn't matter what format you bring it in with.

You are right - but not completely. I think there are a couple of options. If you don't need to edit the Bible text in Word, you could

  • Print to One Note, where the pages of the text become images, which you can then copy or export to Word
  • Print to PDF, then use any freely available converter to export to image files, which you can import in Word
  • Print to PDF and convert to DOCX using calibre. This will turn the pages of the PDF into images in the Word file.

If you need the text to be able to change/re-flow the text in Word, it gets more tricky.See these threads:

I have done some testing just now. Using Word to directly opening the PDF or converting the file with free online conversion tools, will preserve visual filters as pictures, but some of them end up in wrong places or have other problems. In the threads above, Sascha seems to suggest that a conversion using an Adobe subscription (https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/landing/exportpdf-pricing-b.html) leads to better results.
