SMART Tags: use Logos in MS Word!

Looking up Bible texts is a thing of the past with Logos SMART tags! You type a Bible reference in Word, e.g. Gal. 3:1, and without leaving Word you can import the text of that verse from Logos. But that's not all ...

When you type a Bible reference in Word document, Logos Smart Tags recognizes that reference and gives you four options. You can then:

  • replace the reference with the text of the Bible verse; 
  • Open the relevant text in your preferred translation in Logos;
  • Open 'Copy Bible Verses' for more copy options; 
  • open a Passage Guide in Logos for the appropriate Bible reference.
