Used to be we could click on a Bible word and get a list of references like TDNT, TWOT, LSJ etc.  This morning I tried to access this info and all I get is a totally different and unfamiliar list of useless information (like 'fruit' is a noun.  What's happened now with this latest update?

You still can! Just expand (select) the carrot next to Look Up on your Right-Click menu.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

i.e. the dictionary list is collapsed until you click the "down arrow"

After that, you use the inverted "v" or caret to collapse the list.

When I right click on a word in the NASB, and expand lookup, all I get is a list of English dictionaries.  This is not even close to what it used to be.

Gee, Scott, I get greek and hebrew lexicons. Oh wait, I'm on Logos 7.

I read your by-line. $30k is pocket change at Bellingham HQ. I look at the issue as other Logosians funding my software for me (appreciative; I'm also approx $30k and now, mainly non-Logos purchasing).  Every 2 years, I can review the Logos software; see if it's up to my standards. Smiling.

Did you select lemma from the left side of the menu?

There is no option for lemma on the right click menu.

We're talking about NASB95, right?

expanding the greek word behind reed , kalamo, give lemma, root and all the other nice things. Lemma then allows lookup in BDAG etc.

If this is supposed to be an "improvement" Let me go back to the previous version. This is in NO WAY better than it used to be. Why must the software designers only mess up what is working fine???? Rant over.

The big difference is that you don't see "Lemma" when you hover over a Greek/Hebrew word in the Menu. You have to click to see "Lemma" on the other side. If you don't see "Lemma", click another Greek/Hebrew word. After a while you will get used to the icons used for "Lemma" vs. "Root" vs. "Manuscript". Once you select "Lemma" it will be displayed for the next word you right-click.

Hi David,

Welcome to the Logos forums!

David Strawn:

Do you feel that it's worse than before (missing functionality), or merely different (requiring an adjustment)?

Looking forward to hearing more specifics. Thanks!

I don't think there is missing functionality, just a difference in the menu. It's reversed for all intents if you are used to Logos 4 through 7.
