I don't think so. There was a feature Smart Tags that worked with L3 that could open Libronix directly from a verse reference but it doesn't work with Logos 4.

I think so. This should give you instructions for installation.

Is this going to be  a Logos 4 feature?

I hope so. I have been doing it the old way with BW5 because I never knew you could do it this way.

It increases my desire to go back to Logos 3. If it weren't for the floating windows of Logos 4, I probably would.

Logos has indicated that they are considering options to link from Word to Logos 4 but the issue is complicated by the fact that Microsoft is moving away from Smart Tags. Check out the discussion on this item on the UserVoice forum http://logos.uservoice.com/forums/42823-logos-bible-software-4/suggestions/508367-smart-tags-for-logos-4?ref=title (and perhaps place your vote for this item if you want it)

EDIT: be sure to follow the link that Bradley posted on the UserVoice forum. It states that in the 2010 versions of Word and Excel a smart tag must be triggered manually be the user, the programs no longer automatically recognize text. This would make Logos smart tags of limited value!
