If I am reading a Bible text in the reading pane and see a word I want to know more about I look at the Exegetical Guide. In the Exegetical guide there is information that I would like to cut and paste into a Word document, but I cannot do that. I have to take another step and open a resource like BDAG, find the information and then copy it. Could it be possible to copy and paste content from the Exegetical Guide? Or is there a better way to complete this task that I do not know about?

Right-click an expanded section header and you have the option to Copy.

Dave,

Thanks! I think I have tried that but it copies an entire section of material. I am trying to copy Hebrew or Greek spelling, phonetic spelling and definition of one word at a time.

When I right click an expanded header section I do not receive any options. I have three dots on top of each other that I can click on for export options.

I agree that it would be helpful to be able to select and then copy to the clipboard, from many places in Logos.

I would like to be able to select and copy from the Search Results page, from the Information Tool, from the Power Lookup, from the Bible Word Study Guide, from the Text Comparison Tool, etc. 

That would save a lot of time and the effort involved in clicking on the link, going to the resource, and then selecting information and then copying to the clipboard .

Right clicking on the header and then copying always gives me way more information than what I want.

Maybe in Logos 9? Also, drag and drop would be a nice addition to the Logos interface. Has anyone started a Logos 9 wish list yet?

Right click on an original language word or Sense and you will see Copy.
