I just tried to copy text from The Works of John Knox. This resource has the excellent feature of being able to display either modernized spellings or the original spellings in 18th century Scottish  English. But when I copy to my notes, the clipboard gets both, interspersed, no less! So I can't directly copy one or the other, but I get both without having to untangle them.

When I copied and pasted into a Logos note, I got this jumble (but not in bold):

But when I copied to this forum, I got this straightforward version (without bold): That ye may the better perceave and understand the manner of my doctrine in this my Confessioun; first, will I collect and gather the summe thairof in a breif and schort Syllogismus; and heirefter explane the same more largelie. The Masse is Idolatrie. All wirschipping, honoring, or service inventit by the braine of man in the religioun of God, without his own express commandment, is Idolatrie: the Masse is inventit be the braine of man, without any commandement of God: Thairfoir it is Idolatrie.

I didn't know that feature existed in Logos ... thanks for mentioning it.

I've created a case for this, and included a link to this thread. Thanks for the report!
