I'm having trouble adding an additional note anchor attached to a Greek headword.  Here's what I did:

  • click "+ Add anchor"
  • click the "Reference" radio box
  • copy and paste headword from dictionary
  • click on the hyperlinked pop-up of that word, choosing it to fill the "Reference" text box
    • [I get the same results when I just copy-and-paste into the text box.]
  • click "Add"
  • voila, new anchor!

But the note icon doesn't appear by the additional anchor headword.  And when I click on the hyperlinked anchor in my note, the Power Lookup tool opens, searches for the headword, and finds nothing[?!?].  (When I click on the hyperlinked original headword anchor, it takes me to the dictionary entry, as expected.)

I don't think it has to do with these two lemmas being related.  I originally created this note as an attachment to the selected words in my NRSV (using that great new feature for reverse-interlinear texts).  Then I tried adding second and third anchors for the two headwords.  In that original note, both of the hyperlinked headword anchors generated Power Lookups that found nothing.

So I started over, created this current note as an attachment to one of the headwords in BDAG, and then added a second anchor to the selected words in the NRSV, and then a third anchor to the other headword.

In summary, it appears that headword anchors only work if they are the original anchor for the note.  Secondary headword anchors "look good" in the note itself, but apparently don't function at all.

Sorry for the tiny print in the screenshot.  I'm afraid I'm trying to show a lot at one time.

I am also having the same problem today with a secondary anchor attached to an English headword.

Although the initial anchor can be a headword, the secondary anchor dropdown doesn't support headwords. Hoping this will change, as I've also wanted to add a secondary anchor to a headword.
