I am starting an M-diV program at Crown College and they use APA 7, which is new to me. I previously had the Logos settings set to Turabian. When I copied text from a logos source and then pasted it in Word, it perfectly left the sequential number of the quote at the end of the pasted section and automatically put the reference information at the bottom of the page with no hassle. 

So I switched the program settings to be for 7th edition APA and restarted Logos. When I pasted some text into Word, it still showed the little number at the end of the quote and placed the reference info at the bottom of the page like you're supposed to do in Turabian, but not the in-text citation that APA requires (at least it appears to list the reference info in the proper order)  Is this a microsoft word issue? Is there any way to have pasted stuff from logos automatically generate the (Smith 2002) at the end of quotes, perhaps then pasting the reference info in the body at the bottom of the last page of the document? Or is this something I'm going to have to manually do?

I don't think this is possible to do automatically at the moment - hopefully someone from Faithlife will comment as to whether this capability is planned
