Hi there

I am using the Sermon manager and have a reference in the document of Exod 6:2-3.  This correctly shows the word Lord in small caps:

However when I export this to Powerpoint it appears as Lord without small caps.

and 

Is there any way that I can get the Powerpoint to show what is in the text?

thanks


Paul

double click on the word "Lord" then click on the font options [see yellow circle]

then click the checkbox for Small Caps

Thanks for the reply David, my point is not that I can't alter it in Powerpoint but rather that Logos is not exporting the text correctly.  Logos should export the text 'Lord' as small caps but doesn't.

What is the font in Logos and in Powerpoint? I ask only because not all fonts support small caps.

Thanks for the reply MJ.  I am simply choosing fully rendered so have no confrol over the text.  Therefore I assumed that Logos would choose a font which supported small caps.

If I export using the 'Editable text' option it arrives in PPT using Arial, which does support small caps.

So that's my reasoning as to why this is a bug.

Since this is not a problem that other users can remedy, it may be better to email your request to Faithlife personnel.

FWIW, this seems to be an issue of font "effects" which to the best of my knowledge is not supported via export (strikethrough, double strikethrough, Superscript, subscript, and All Caps are also not supported).

Agreed, however of that list I think that only small caps is used in the particular text I am interested in.

Thanks for the report, Paul. I have added it to our internal queue of bugs/feature requests and am investigating what it might take to support small caps in our export. I agree that preserving the visual distinction for "Lord" is important there!
