Is there a way to open all your lexicons at once like you can with your commentaries.

Super fast and efficient.

The video demonstrated what I mean - VIDEO

I don't think opening them all at once really is a good idea once you have more than ten or a dozen. Anyway. The information tool most probably is what really helps much without being in the way.

An alternative, especially if you want to see muchg text from many lexicons, would be to open them and arrange them as you see fit, aligning all of them with a link set. When you use that same link set in your bible (note: must be a full-functionality one with an RI dataset), one click on a word will have all the lexicons set to that lemma.

Once it looks like you want it, save as a named layout.  

Does this help?

Put either the BWS Guide (with it's Lemma section) or simply the Lemma Guide section into a linkset with your Bible. There's nothing faster or more convenient in my opinion. I personally prefer the BWS, since I want to see my translation ring as soon as I click on a word in my Bible. You could, of course, create a custom Guide with the sections that interest you. Once you put a Lemma based Guide or Guide section into a linkset with your Bible, the behavior will be the same as Mick mentioned with Lexicons (a single click on a word in an RI Bible will lookup the underlying lemma in your Guide, Lexicon, etc).

------------- -- thanks - Yes I have been doing it that way for a long time- I just noticed the "Commentary Tool" that you can pin to the shortcut bar and I thought this kind of one-click tool to open a LIST of my lexicons would be super fast and effective. I am looking for a tool that will open a list of all my lexicons so I can click on them faster - Just like the Commentary tool. -- thanks my friend. I do appreciate your help.

I like this. Thanks - I can see a list of the Lexicons this way. thanks

Once the guide is open you can link it to your bible and it will populate when you single click on a word in the linked bible.  Just in case you did not know this.

I feel like I should take the time to figure out what's being described here. It sounds useful.

If you watch the very short video I made and linked above, it shows what I am referring to.

Please, let me know if the video helps to explain. Also, I uploaded a video right after that one on how we solved the problem using the suggestions in this stream.

Here is a link to that one also --

Hi Wayne:

I saw an article that may be helpful. I have not done it myself with lexicons, but I used the methodology with Bibles and it works:

https://support.logos.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018068751-Parallel-Resource-Sets

So in theory you could do your collection putting all the lexicons that you really like.

Then you just have one open, that would be the target to the hyperlink to the word you are interested in.

When you want to see the other lexicons then you just use the arrows to have that tab change to the next one in the collection.

You could then go forward and back in the collection to show the parallel resources and theoretically it should be in the same word location.

If the technique works, then please let us know. I do not know how to make a gif of the working of the method. I know it works with Bibles.

Peace and grace.

Yes it does work Sometimes, but not always.  - Here is a short video demonstrating the feature and the problems I came across:

I sent that guy in link you sent me this video to show what solutions I have found.

Gregorio Billikopf:

1. I am getting inconsistent results when I try the right arrow to change Lexicons. Sometimes it works and at other times it does not. What am I doing wrong?

2. As I move from one Lexicon to the next, my word may be changed without my permission and then I never get the original word back. 

Example: 

Lets just pick any word, such as הַמַּ֜יִם. And lets assume that I can get it to move from Lexicon to Lexicon. At some point it may reach a Lexicon that only has, say, מי, and from then on, I no longer get my original word הַמַּ֜יִם. Suggestions? 

--- I sent the following to the guy in the post you sent me. 

Here is what I found to explain the solution.

Short Video demonstrates. Video Click here
