It is a powerful Feature if it would work properly

Parallel resource - Maybe I am not doing it right,

Short Video demonstrates the feature and problems associated with it.

Apparently there's not too much interest in your query Wayne. I've not experienced it because I'm really not familiar with it.

Wayne likes videos a lot but we don't do Google. So. (Just explaining.)

It shows only parallel resources that have a milestone reference for your current location. That's why you'll see the number fluctuate up and down depending on what article you're on in your current resource.

In your lexicons you had Greek Strong's selected in the reference box. The parallel resources menu always looks up what's in that reference box. In this case that meant only resources that were indexed by Greek Strongs showed in the Parallel Resources Menu. If you had selected the Greek lemma in the reference box, you'd have had a much longer list of lexicons, as far more lexicons are indexed by lemma.

With Greek Strongs selected (a short list):

With the lemma selected (a longer list):

 If you had 'no parallel resources' show up when you're in a lexicon, the chances are that you had the page number selected in the reference box – if you did, you're effectively asking Logos to 'show me all the resources that have a page 252'. Logos knows that's pointless so it just ignores that request. (That said, occasionally you'll get 'no parallel resources' anyway. If so, just scroll up and down a little and try again.)

To show in parallel resources, a resource must be:

  1. Either of the same type as the current resource or in a collection alongside the current resource.
  2. Have the same approximate reference* or the same headword as what's currently selected in the reference box.

* For performance reasons, an exact check is NOT performed when creating the Parallel Resource Menu, so occasionally some false-positives can occur. (This is a long-standing frustration that I wish would be fixed.)

It always takes much longer to respond to a video than it does to a normal post. That's probably why Wayne had to wait a little longer for replies.

Thanks - You guys are the best - I kinda understand what you are saying, but something strange is happening. The Louw_Nida shows up in the Shared Collection only if I open it manually. Why is it not there when I want to simply use my arrow keys and flip through the Collection which contains the Louw-Nida. Short Video Demonstrates. 

Just confused as to why it shows up in the collection being shared when I manually open it as opposed to being listed in the collection without me manually opening it up.

The Collection I am sharing to the Parallel Resouce contains both the WSNTDICT and the Louw-Nida

When I select the Strong’s Greek #3709 for the WSNTDICT the Louw-Nida is not visible BUT,

when I select the Louw Nida 88.173 and open the Louw-Nida - I can still see the WSNTDICT in the list. 

Why is it showing BOTH when I click on the Louw Nida 88.173 Louw-Nida info and not showing both when I click on the Strong’s Greek #3709 for the WSNTDICT

That is what is confusing me.

I get it now - When I right-click the Greek Word in my Bible and select the "LEMMA" then I can see all the Lexicons that have that particular Word. I have to select the proper thing (Lemma in this case) in order for all the Lexicons that contain that Lemma to show up in the Shared Resources. 

Sorry that it took me a while to understand -
