I do a lot of copying and pasting of Bible texts.

I used to have a real nice Hebrew font when I printed Bible verses.

Now I'm getting something that looks like somebody wrote them by hand rather than having a genuine print font.  

What happened and what can I do?

Thank you

Is this when you're printing them from Logos or from Word (or another program)?

The best way to check if people have answered questions you've posted is to click on the Your Discussions link on the main page of the forums:

The subject lines of any threads that people have posted to since you last looked at them will show up in bold/blue.

Note that this will include any threads you've commented on too, not just the questions you've asked. But you'll probably recognize the subject lines of the ones you're waiting for answers on.

I have hundreds of notes that have completely lost my previously chosen Hebrew font and reverted to some clunky sans serif font that is annoyingly hard to read. Also, I can go back into those notes and choose to apply the SBL Hebrew font to those notes, but even after I do so, that only changes the font in the note input window...when I hover over the note icon, the Hebrew in the pop-up window is still a sans-serif font. I have also noticed that text copied from Logos into Word loses many formatting and markup choices. This is unacceptable behavior, but FL has allowed this condition to continue for months (perhaps it's more than a year now). I can only conclude they don't care and have only contempt for their users.

Hi Rosie

I often paste Scripture passages from Logos to Word.  I used to get a font that looked majestic for Hebrew.  Now it's like scrawl.   I changed no settings. 

I think you may have told me before about how to find discussions.  It's just that when I don't get notifications like I used to, I get busy on stuff and then I don't check them.  How often should I be checking them?  Every hour?

Thank you.

I think you see what you call the good font and the clunky font in this screenshot, just to clarify the terminology.

In the interlinear I was able to copy an interlinear line and paste it in Word, and it gave the good font.

I am using the latest version Logos 8 in my desktop. My first guess is that the problem is related to Logos 9?

Hmm, I don't think I can help you here. I was wondering if there was some font you needed to have installed for Word that's separate from what Logos uses, but when I copy and paste Hebrew from Logos (e.g., from BHS) into word, it comes out looking fine. And when I select any of this text in Word, it tells me it's in Times New Roman, which evidently has the Hebrew letters in it. Interestingly, however, the spaces between words are in SBL Hebrew (which is my default Hebrew font in Logos). Do you have SBL Hebrew in your Font dropdown in Word? If so, what happens if you select all the text you pasted in and set the font to SBL Hebrew?

Once a day should be sufficient. But I think you need to sign up for notifications on each thread you're interested in getting notified about. Click the "Email me when someone replies" button at the top right of this thread, and see if that works. I've never used that feature, since whenever I check the forums, I look to see if I have any replies on my active threads, especially if I know I'm waiting for an answer on something.

I have had innumerable problems with my notes from L4 to L9, but this particular Hebrew font blunder is something I have only noticed since updating to L9.

I can't reproduce it.

Does this happen simply when you select some text in a Hebrew Bible (say BHS) and copy (Ctrl+C) and then paste into Word, or are you using the Copy Bible Verses tool?

What version of Word?

What version of Windows?

An idea for Bible text font(s) is installing font(s) in the operating system for all applications to use: e.g. Society of Biblical Languages SBL BibLit => https://www.sbl-site.org/educational/biblicalfonts.aspx as SBL BibLit True Type font includes English, Greek, and Hebrew unicode characters followed by verifying SBL BibLit appears in your preferred word processing application as a font choice (some forum users have replied about SBL BibLit not being usable in various MS Word versions). If SBL BibLit is usable in your preferred application(s), then can launch Logos/Verbum => Program Settings to choose Default Resource Font, Default Notes Font, Greek Font, and Hebrew Font:

Thankful for SBL BibLit FAQ => https://www.sbl-site.org/educational/BiblicalFonts_FAQ.aspx FWIW: LibreOffice is my choice for Office docx.
