How come when I highlight a word or phrase in English like "a Sabbath days journey" and past it anywhere including MS Word, this is what I get "σαββατον"?

Well it's the latest version of Logos on Win 8.1.

I tried it with several other passages with the same results.

Windows has a built-in tool called "Snipping Tool". It is very easy to learn and use.

Select the words you want to copy and right click on them. A menu opens up. On the right side, you will see the English word at the top, but Greek below. Click on the English word on the right side, then on "copy" on the left. 

We can also use the English text to copy the underlying Greek word. That is what you are doing.

Αre you sure you copy the selection and not the Greek lemma (e.g. from an RI enabled bible)?

I stutter some too. Stick out tongue I don't know how that happened.

I can't "snip it" because the open "right click" box closes.

I was looking for an image of a bottle of paste (as in glue, library paste, etc.) with Greek lettering on it, but this was the closest I could come. I appreciated the fact that I could recognize ΚΟΛΓΚΕ'Ι'Τ as a Greek transliteration of Colgate. I guess Crest would have been ΚΡΕΣΤ. Glad you can "smile even though [you] use Crest." Does that mean you don't really trust Crest to make your teeth nice and white? Smile

Sorry, Rick, for hijacking your serious thread with this silliness. Try using the free Jing to record a screencast of you doing the copy and paste so we can see what's going on.

You have the root selected on the right hand side.

Select "a sabbath's day journey" at the top and you will be fine

Rick Ratzlaff, thanks for posting the screenshot, that helps us see what's going on. Notice what Rick Carmickle said. That's your answer. You have to click the top right option there in the pop up window that comes up when you right click. After you select the english "A Sabbath's day's journey" then you can click "copy" on the left side of the pop up window. Basically the menu items on the left half of that popup correspond to what you have selected on the right half of the pop up window. If you don't understand that principle, then I could see how this would be confusing. So yeah, first select what you want on the right half, and then select what you want on the left half. Notice how in your screenshot, you have the Greek selected on the right half of the popup, that's why when you select "copy" on the left half, it's copying the Greek. Does that make sense? I hope this helps.
