What is Print/Export?

This feature allows you to print and/or export sections of resources and the output of many tools in Logos, similar to a document processor.
It opens as a floating window and has various options for printing, exporting and previewing its output.

How to open Print/Export

  • You can print most of the items from: resources, tools, documents, etc
    and the method for opening the Print/Export window is the same.

From the Panel menu

  1. Open the Panel menu of the resource.
  2. In the drop down menu, click on Print/Export.
  3. The Print window will open.
    Logos will only allow one Print/Export window to be open at a time.

Using keyboard shortcut

  1. Click in the resource that you want to print from.
  2. On your keyboard use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P/Cmd+P to open the Print/Export window.

Selecting what to print

  • There are a few ways to determine what will be printed, depending on the resource or tool type.
  • So this wiki subTopic is broken up into 3 minor Topics to try and cover these situations.
  • These may not be fully inclusive of all resources or tools. But in these examples you can see
    what you might expect in the Print Preview window when trying to determine what will be printed.
  • Note that Favorites and Copy Bible Verses do not have a Print/Export option, and some other tools are Export only.
  • When printing from a Guide you will need to expand/open the individual sections headings that you want to be printed.
    • If you have the Print/Export window open and then change the Guide view,
      use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+P to update the Print window.
  • When printing Notes or Clippings, Logos does not permit printing individual notes or clippings.
  • When printing a Passage List and you have multiple Bibles selected, Logos will print it vertically or horizontally
    depending on how it is showing on your screen, so adjust your Passage List window for the view you want.

From text resources

  1. Choose what you want printed:
    • you can select text; or
    • you can filter the resource e.g. from a Passage List; or
    • just locate the section you want.
  2. Open the Print/Export window.

  3. When the Print window appears, notice that one of Use selected text, Use filtered text or Use these sections is chosen,
    and you see the text in the preview area.
  4. Depending on your resource type you may see a scripture reference, a word or a page number that indicates the active reference.
    You can click in the box to change the range:
    • Page numbers must be consecutive e.g. Page 544-546.
      Be aware that the number of pages that you select may be different than the number of pages printed (look under the preview page for the number of pages to be printed).
    • Enter a scripture reference range like you would in your Bible resource e.g. Mt 6:1-8.
    • After editing in the box, click on the blue arrow to update the preview page.
  5. You can choose Use these sections to customize what will be included in your printed page(s).
    The items that appear here are what you would see in the Table of Contents for the resource that you are printing from.
    Be aware that not all Bibles (or other resources) show every heading.
    • Instead of checking every subsection, you can right click on a heading that you want printed and choose Select all (or Clear all).
  6. Finally, choose whether you want to print in Columns:
    • Single is the default
    • Auto will select the best choice for number of columns; usually 2.
    • The preview page will update when you make a choice.

From some tools

  • Many Logos tools and some resources may give you a more limited set of options for selecting what you want to print.
    • Some tools where this may happen: Guides, Information, Cited By, Power Lookup, Workflows.
  1. Open the Print/Export window after you have run the tool:

  2. Select the output format that you want and then view it in the preview page.
    • Print as shown on screen is the first Print option.
    • Print as exported is the alternative Print option,
      the preview page shows the single format for the Export methods.
  • Collections provides output formats that apply to both Print and Export.

From other tools

  • When opening the Print/Export window for some tools or resources you may notice that there are no print selection options.
    • Some examples where this might happen: Search, Factbook, Atlas, Highlighting, Text Comparison, Explorer, Notes.
  1. Open the Print/Export window after you have run the tool:

  2. Notice there are no print selections available. If you find that your preview page is insufficient, then:
    • Try using the Export method(s) along with a word processor or a browser.
    • Or bypass using the Print window and use Copy/Paste from your resource into a word processor.

  • Logos provides a condensed view and a zoomed view to preview your document.


  • The default view is Fit but you can zoom in to Actual Size to get a better idea of how your document will look before printing:
    • Notice that the cursor changes to an open hand when over the document.
      Use this to drag the zoomed document into position for viewing.
  • Notice the page number under the document preview.
    This shows you the number of printed pages that you can expect.
    • You can click on the arrows to change the preview page of the document.
    • Or you can use the arrows on your keyboard to change the preview page.
  • You can scale the size of text in the Print window, but it will not effect the actual size of text in the document:
    1. Open the Print window’s Panel menu.
    2. Use the slider to adjust the window’s text size.

Setting up the printed page

  • You will want to setup how you want your document printed before you actually print your page.

Font Size

  • To change the size of text for your document within your print preview window you need to change
    the size of text for the resource/tool prior to opening the Print/Export window.
    1. Open the Panel menu of the resource/tool.
    2. In the drop down menu, adjust the text size slider to get the required text size.
    3. Then click on Print/Export in the menu.

to the printer to the clipboard, or selected document processors.

Note that some tools allow export only e.g. Library, Concordance.

  • You can export your document to the windows Clipboard for pasting into Word, Excel, PowerPoint or some other editing software.
  • Option is similar to Paste into open document (below) except for Citation.
    • check your Footnote and Citation options in the Program Settings tool.
