I'm imagine I'm missing something silly...but for some reason when in DBL Greek, clicking on TDNT ref  entry numbers it no longer opens up TDNT and goes to the reference.  I can see it in the mouseover preview....but won't open when clicked.  Thanks for any help!

I emailed this problem to customer service a long time ago and never got a helpful response. There are other problems with hyperlinks in other reference works as well. Some of the journals that are cited are hyperlinked but not the page numbers or volume numbers so the link is ineffective. It's frustrating because I will have to copy and paste the info into the library search box to open the article.

Prioritize TDNT above DBL Greek as follows, using Advanced Prioritization

Because ESL and LN have similar interaction  with DBL Greek, you could also include those.

For DBL Hebrew, you can similarly  prioritize TWOT and ESL (Hebrew Strong's).

Please post a screenshot (using the paperclip icon in the forum editor) showing where you are clicking in DBL Greek and the results. I've just tried it on a few samples and it worked fine

Dave's suggestion worked....thanks Dave!  I'm not sure I understand why though!

If DBL Greek is your preferred lexicon, it will be prioritized higher than TDNT, and it will "steal" TDNT links away from TDNT (and it will do the same for Greek Strong's numbers).

So TDNT needs to be prioritized higher than DBL Greek. But if you prioritized TDNT normally, then it would steal lemma links away from DBL Greek! Advanced Prioritization overcomes that by specifying that TDNT is restricted to TDNT links.
