Is it possible to copy a book's outline and paste it into word.  I am studying a commentary and want to create the outline and then summarize my notes for each point in the outline.  Do you have any suggestions?

If the commentary has an outline you can select that, copy it and then paste it into Word.

But I guess you are asking something different. Can you please expand a bit further?

what do you mean by Outline? You can mark everything in the Commentary and export it to Word?

When you open a book at the top left there is double arrows >>.  When I click on them, the outline for the book opens at the left of the text.  I cannot seem to highlight or copy any portion of the outline.  I am wondering if it is possible to copy or export it to Microsoft Word.  I have been manually copying the outline but I think there must be an easier method.

The outline that you are trying to copy is the Table of Contents. If you navigate to the resource's Table of Contents, you can copy/paste from there.

If you notice there is more to the outline than the Table of Contents.  In the example you posted the Table of Contents lists Chapter 14 along with the title of the chapter.  Looking at the outline we see numerous points and subpoints.  I am looking to capture all of them.  It appears to me though that the only way to do that is to manually enter them in my Word document.

I fully understand your dilemma now. Unfortunately, I don't know of any way to print/export those. It sounds like a very good idea though. Sorry that I can't be of any more help.

You could play a bit with the Export/print Tool but the only Way I see is this. I find no way for export with just Heading

on the other Hand...if you export the whole Book you could easy delete the Text between the Headings by search only the normal Textformation and delete.

A partial answer may be to use the Windows Snipping Tool, but it only gives you a graphical image, not editable text in Word.

Implementation of "Copy from everywhere" was already started 2 years ago:
