I really like the concept of the clippings in Logos 4. My problem is that I don't seem to be able to get the footnote references to work correctly when using clippings.

When I copy text directly into my word processor in Logos 4 it works properly. The reference citation automatically saves the correct information in a footnote. I set the citation style in my program settings to Turabian and it works great.  However, when I copy the same information into a clipping and then copy the clipping into my word processor no reference material is copied into a footnote. Also, when I flip the clipping to view the Bibliographic Info it always defaults to APA style instead of Turabian. In addition, even when I manually tell it to use Turabian is does not properly use the Turabian citation style when I copy and paste the material.

This will limit the usefulness of clippings for me when writing formal papers.

As a work-around that you can use while you wait for more help, I would suggest you click the hyperlink that the clipping captures and it will take you to your resource and the correct section. You can then simply copy it from the book (or resource) and get the reference in a footnote.

A great suggestion! I had not thought of doing that.
