Interesting question.

If you open a Bible, select some text, and choose Fie | Print, the Page Range (in the Print dialog) Selection is unavailable. What it seems to do is to print the current chapter.

Hopefully you've found the Copy Verses button in the System Tray (bottom right of screen.) You can then paste into Word, and print it formatted the way you want (font, with/without words of Christ in Red, etc.) If that's too slow on your system, perhaps you can use Notepad instead of Word.

Alternatively, you could type the passage reference into Word (e.g. Jn 3:1-16), and use Smart Tags to get Word to replace the reference with the verses from Logos. See http://www.logos.com/support/article/530

(In practice, you need both Word and Logos open for Smart Tags to work swiftly.)

Does this cover what you needed to do?

Uh, maybe I'm missing something but: open Bible, select text, right click, print?

Since you asked the question on the Mac forum, I assume it concerns printing from the Mac version. I selected portions of text in the ESV and executed the print command from the keyboard (Cmd-P). I did this for two different selections, and Logos printed the selected text each time.

Hey guys, 

Thanks for the help, but both Randy's and Jack's suggestions just aren't working for me.  Let me get specific.  I was trying to print the text of Genesis 4-9.  I open up the Bible text window, hightlight the chapters, when I do go to File-Print, in the preview and on the printer, it only prints two pages. Genesis 4 and a footnote page, but it does not print chapters 5-9.  Obviously I could print each chapter seperately, but I would think there should be a way to print all 6 chapters without jumping through that Print hoop 6 times.

Any other ideas are welcome!

This may be due to copyright restrictions. The same situation exists in the Windows version and with resources other than Bibles.
