NB: I'm able to do what I need to do by using the "Save as file" option. It produces xml fine. I haven't tried csv. So I'm reporting this just because it does seem to be a bug.

The options "Send to new document" and "Paste into new document" do nothing useful. Behaviors are different depending on whether or not I have Excel open when I try to export.

To produce:

Open the library as a floating window.

Specify search criteria: I typed in "Syriac" and got a list.

Select "Print/export" from the menu. The Print/export window opens. Printing is not available, only export.

The "paste into open document" option was inactive if Excel wasn't open, active if it was. In the latter case, choosing the option had no effect.

The "Send to new document" option was active whether or not Excel was open. If it was open, choosing the option produced no effect. If it was not open, choosing the option caused an Excel worksheet window to open. After a delay of perhaps 20 seconds it closed. The Excel worksheet window that opened had no cells in its body, just the ribbon stuff at the top and a featureless body. I saw no evidence that a file was actually created.

So far as I can tell all the software is at the latest version.

It works fine for me (with Excel v2106, build 14131.20320).

Logs might show the failure.

(Note that due to Windows security features, sending to Excel will not work if Logos or Excel is "Run as Administrator".)

Excel 2016 is not Excel 365.

The bug has an easy workaround. If Logos support requests the logs I'll send them. Otherwise, I'll leave it at having documented what I encountered.
