Jack Caviness:

Graham, do not believe the options in your screenshot exist in MS Word for Mac.

Thanks Jack, I wasn’t aware of that. But I had noted that Daniel was running Windows so it would be available to him.

Jack Caviness:

Also, according to Adam's post, those settings will not correct the problem. Text from Logos would still paste in Calibri.

True - but using the “Keep Text Only” option would paste in the required font although it would lose other formatting. So the best option will vary based on need.

It is my honor, Mike Binks, to accept your apology.  Your attitude demonstrates, to my way of thinking, that you are a true Man of God.  Thank you for being such a shining example of our Lord's humility on this earth!

Summa Theologica by Aquinas does not show up in systematic theologies anymore.

It still seems to be in the systematic theology dataset

I have the English version of the book

Group: Medieval

• Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica (Latin)

• Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica (English)

I just tested and mine does show Aquinas ... it must be specific to your installation.

Well, I rebuilt the index and started Logos over, and Summa Theologica (English version) is still not showing up in the Systematic Theologies.

I am using PC and Windows 8.1 and everything else seems to work fine. The Logos version is 8.9  (8.9.0.0023), not beta.

*****

I bought Summa Contra Gentiles to test, and that is working, Thus my computer has nothing particularly against Aquinas.

By the way the Rebuild Index was fast: less than half of the time, (possibly a third) I expected!

I guess it now utilizes the CPU cores better. Thanks a lot to FL! Cool

Okay, I was dense - only the Latin appears not the English for ST

There might be a typo in the newest dataset update.

I assume it is easy to fix.

It's not new, but up to 6 resources are indexed at a time, using 6 cores/threads (provided you have 5 GB or more RAM).

Thanks, Adam. I'll attach my Word 2010 setting. If I drag and drop or Ctrl + V, I still get Calibri.

I really think this either needs to be reversed, or we need an option to reverse it. My major use is in BibleWorks, and I have to re-format each Logos pasting. This is new and unwelcome behavior.

Same settings as Daniel, but when I Ctrl-V from a commentary in Word, it pastes it in as Calibri 12pt. My Normal style is Arial 10pt. If I right-click in my sermon, and select "merge formatting," it pastes in as Arial 10 pt.

Well, a new dataset came today, but it keeps the same problem: not showing Summa (English) under the Medieval section in the Systematic theologies in the Passage Guide

Thus I made a workaround: I bought the Latin version and use the English as the parallel resource. This may sound like a drastic decision, but I've been thinking to have the Latin version.

Daniel J. Phillips:

I have keep source formatting.

Hi, Daniel. I apologize for the trouble. This was an intentional change as part of the fix for the problem reported here. We had our "default" font set as Times New Roman (which, happily for you, coincided with your target font). Most Word users, however, use Word's default font, Calibri, and we intentionally changed our default font to match the default for the majority of users.

Ultimately, whether to respect the font of the copied text is up to the receiving application.

Is it impossible for you to allow the user to set "[ y ]our 'default' font"?

With this latest update, does it paste into Word in the users normal font choice, or is it still coming in as Calibri 12pt?

That is happening to me also. I end up having to manually change the font.

Bumping this thread to advocate for the solution of being able to set a personal default font for pastes.

I don't do most of my serious work in Word but Nota Bene, where the default is still Times New Roman. I do not want to switch to using Calibri for academic writing. That Logos thinks I should whenever I do a paste is somewhat annoying.

It is possible to do a paste that strips out the formatting, but it strips out all the formatting, such as italics in the original.

Please reconsider and fix this.

Amen!

Also, since this bad change, when I use the Logos tool to copy Hebrew text and paste it into BibleWorks, the first word is always a different font from the rest of the quotation. So I always — ALWAYS — have to re-format just the first word. As so:

My copy of Logos 8 reports that I have version 8.14.0.0010. When I submit the Update Now command it reports there are no updates available. Also, when I download the installer, it reports that I am running the latest software. How can I update to 8.9?

You are running 8.14 which is more recent (the current version) than 8.9
