What does it do?

Visual Copy allows you to create elegant, share-worthy slides in seconds. Right click a text, image, or quote, and instantly convert it into an image for stunning presentations and inspirational social-media posts.

How does it help?

Come across an interesting infographic, verse, or quote? With a click, add it to your next sermon to engage your congregation. You can also customize your favorite quotes and verses with colorful templates. No more late Saturday nights working on your presentation—now you can craft your presentations while studying.

Open in Logos 6

This feature is available in Core Crossgrade and higher and in Starter level base packages and higher

I just downloaded and installed Logos 6, when I select text from Spurgeon and click visual copy I get a message saying some templates were unavailable and when I click retry nothing happens. Thanks!

We're working out some server hiccups with the heavy load this morning; please bear with us, someone will respond to this thread once the issues have settled down. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Custom backgrounds has definitely been discussed for a future version, but not in 6.0. Thanks!

I suggested something similar during the Beta cycle. Logos indicated then as Eli has indicated in this thread that it is something they have discussed for a future release. 

Keep in mind that if you copy or export you are exporting an image. You can customize that image based on the limitations of whatever image editor you may be using.

i loved using visual copy during beta testing for quick and easy export for lessons I was teaching. Very good feature. Glad I don't have to keep it hidden anymore

Does Visual Copy "send to" Keynote?

It does not support send to Keynote at this time. There is a copy button that could be used to copy and paste into Keynote.

Keynote is not one of the options.  I'm not familiar with it in particular - but You can send it to Proclaim or Powerpoint, you can also save it as a graphic on your desktop, or COPY it to your clipboard.  I presume from there you could do anything.

Thank you for the quick responses! 

So does "send to" essentially simplify copy and pasting? Or does it add some formatting specific to the targeted presentation software?

I think it just speeds up the copy paste.  I've not really noticed anything fancy happening in powerpoint with it.

Sending to PowerPoint and copying to the Clipboard essentially exports a single image with the embedded text. Images sent to Proclaim include the background image along with the text field(s) information. This allows Proclaim users to further style the text, change the margins, edit the text, etc.

Awesome! Thanks for answering my question.

Not a big deal, but I hope Keynote is integrated into Visual Copy sometime. I love Keynote and have been using it for years. I look forward to using Visual Copy when I upgrade to Logos 6.
