I've searched the forums and found much discussion on IMPORTING epub files into Logos, but I am interested in EXPORTING my books in epub format, for reading on an ereader like reMarkeable.

Possible?

not directly, but you can export into Word format and then there are many converters out there to ePub format.

Would love for an easy way to do this for reading on a Kindle Oasis... how are you liking the remarkable?

I don't have one.

I bought the Onyx Note 3 two days ago for the specific purpose of using it as a reader for my Logos books, since it supports Android apps. I found two things pretty quickly: 1) I am really going to like writing on a reader-tablet like this, and 2) the tablet is very lacking in many other ways. Among them is the Logos app really doesn't work very well on it. The whole system seems unstable, lots of crashes and hangups, and it's only 2 days old. Other apps, like the Kindle app, also leave much to be desired.

So...I wanted to return this and buy a reMarkable instead, which gets great reviews and seems to be more "stable." But it only supports epub books. This is why I was asking the question, before returning the Onyx and buying the reMarkable.

So, if I can access certain books in my library it's a go. I don't need to access all the features, but if I'm reading in a few books, I really don't want to continue doing that on an LED screen. ReMarkable ordered, I can let you know how I like it when it arrives.

As for the workaround (copying into Word and reformatting into epub), that will be tedious, since Logos limits copying to 100 pages at a time (don't I own the books?)

yes, id like to know what you think about the reMarkable when you get it...

one thing to make it less tedious is to make the page size as large as possible and the font size as small as possible, and then you get more bang for your buck re the 100 pages limit. there's a thread on here somewhere about the process. will try to find it if no one else comments with it that has it handy.

Use the “print” feature to create a .docx file. You will need to find a converter from there.

You can use this as a guideline: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/124007.aspx 

Instead of using the Send to Kindle software, you convert the MS Word file to EPUB using calibre or another converter.

If I recall correctly, one of our users created a utility to convert between EPUB and Logos.  You might be better served taking a look at his utility.  Message Jan  Krohn, and see where he stands in his development cycle.

Alternately, I suggest the method of saving to a docx file, then using Calibre to convert it to EPUB, It's not as laborious or lengthy as it sounds.
