The title says it all. It is easy to copy the original word used in a verse but is there a way to copy the transliterated word? This seems like it should be obvious to do but for some reason I cannot figure out how to do it either in the right click panel or the interlinear pane.

Well, you won't like this answer. But sure saves time, if you're writing for non-hebrew-ists or greek-ists:

Includes both hebrew and greek. The reason this specific title (not the other Strongs, etc), is because you can right-click any lemma in hebrew or greek, and it does a quick lookup. The bigger lexicons also, if you have the pocket-change, but this one easily fits in a layout corner for quick access, either language.

That is the best option so far. I was hoping for something that didn't require opening another resources, but maybe that is the easiest way in Logos.

The inline interlinear view will copy all the information that is displayed for a word, which I normally use, paste into the text processor and remove what I don't need. An alternative to that would be to just have it display the transliteration (surface or lemma, whatever you need) and copy from there:

I feel really dumb but how do you copy all of the information in the inline interlinear? I can only figure out how to copy the surface English text or the actual Greek.

Copy the original language word and use the Text Converter tool.

Sorry, my bad. I thought this had worked with copy/paste when I posted earlier, but I must have tricked myself. Actually I know about this limitation and even posted about it recently. Embarrassed You need to use Print/Export and then write to an XPS file, from there you can copy nicely

I found this a few years ago...I love it. FWIW, here's my usual workflow when studying a Greek word (I always put the transliterated word in my notes):

Right-click the word, make sure the lemma is selected, and open the Bible Word Study guide.

The lemma is already selected in the BWS reference box (this is convenient!), so I type CMD-C to copy.

I keep the Text Converter in a sidebar on Logos (I use it all the time), so it's easy to click it and then type CMD-V to paste in the original language box.

I click Copy (right below where I pasted) and I'm off to my word processor.

Then I come back to study the word in BWS. (This is why I usually don't select "Copy reference...Text" from the context menu, which is another way you could do this).

I love good workflows!
