I select a verse, then Visual copy. It breaks it up onto two slides. I'd like to decrease the font size and have it on one slide, to use for memorization. No option. I search all over the place, right-clicking and all. No option.

Help has inaccurate info as far as I can tell. It says:


  1.      Click Tools | Visual Copy
  ...6.      Click Actual Size or Fit in the toolbar to change the size of the viewed image.

But there is no Tools | Visual Copy.

How can I do this? Or is there a better Logos tool to use for memorization?

There is no such menu command in L7 either. To use Visual Copy you select a bible verse and right-click.

In the upcoming VC-Tool you can select the font and size:

EDIT: For clarity: In thew upcoming Media Tool (which now works for Visual Copy) you can select the font and size once you click in the Body Text area down left: /EDIT

Hope this helps a bit.

At the beginning of the Visual Copy section in Help it explains that Visual Copy is in L6 only:

Visual Copy [L6] [Net]

Visual Copy remains in version 6 only. It was replaced in version 7 by the Media tool, which also incorporates all the functionality of the "Media Browser" feature which was briefly available as part of a Faithlife Connect membership.

Sorry; are you just agreeing that my note is in error? That note was from within my Logos 8, in which I select a verse, right-click it, and have Visual Copy as an option. When I select it, it opens in Media. In Media, I can't change the font size. I did a search in help, and what I quoted to you is what I found.

Sorry if I'm being slow.

If you click in the "Body Text" area you should then get the option to change font, font size and a  range of other things.

Sorry for not catching this in the very first instance - I posted again and I edited my first reply - : In thew upcoming Media Tool (which now works for Visual Copy) you can select the font and size once you click in the Body Text area down left

After you clicked the Body Text, a new menu line appeared above your picture, which gives the font, size, color and 'style'. Where it says 112 in your screenshot, I changed to 40.

That's not actually a font size issue - it's a layout one.

If you delete the new lines - and additional spaces - in the text it will all adjust to fit on one slide

Maybe. But still you can choose to change the font size to smaller and it's much less troublesome. It's only weird that Logos doesn't show this menu line from the beginning and has no indicator where to click to activate it.

Thank you all. I made it, saved it, tried to open it, it now looks like this. Not the way it was when saved.

That's because the body text is still displaying as well as the image you saved and uploaded.

Delete the text in the body text field and you should be fine.

Apologies - I'm aware we didn't respond to this part of your post.

Try looking at the Memorize view in Passage Lists.

No apologies! I so appreciate you, NB.Mick and Levi patiently helping me. I'm in your debt.

I'll check that out forthwith.
