  • Open a book that has footnotes in it.
  • Go into paged view (Columns = 1).
  • Turn on "Show footnotes on page"
  • Page to a page that has footnotes on it.

Notice: you can select text in the body of the book, but you cannot select text in the footnote.

There is a workaround: Find the footnote marker in the body of the text and click on it; you can select footnote text in the pop-up. So it's not crucial that this be fixed soon, but I just wanted to document it anyway, since it should work as expected. I was trying to do this just the other day. Came across a book title in a footnote and wanted to see if Logos carried it, so I tried to copy it from the footnote, but no dice.

I'm hoping that the text I just happened to have highlighted in my screenshot is a harbinger of things to come in Logos. Smile

Agreed, and it's on our backlog. I don't currently have an estimate for when this might be implemented.

Bump. It's been over a year since I reported this problem. I'm still bothered by this, and am petitioning to have it fixed in the next release please.

You haven't given it enough time. Please come back in 16-24 months. Surprise

I'm sorry Rosie but I do not have an estimate when this will be implemented. Sad The good news is that there is still an active case for this, and I will update the case with your recent post to let the developers know about it.
