Hi again.

Please see attached screenshot.

I have changed some of my Prioritised books, and now it seems like the right-click menu's layout changed. Previously the lemma and so on was on the right-hand of the menu and now it is left.

I don't think it bothers me but I want to understand where Logos grabs the information from to populate this menu?

The layout of the Context menu changed with the release of Logos 8.7

Here is a link to a video overview

There are several sources of the data which is dependent upon what datasets, features and resources you own. What is shown depends upon what element you have selected on the left-hand side.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

It both seems so long ago and just yesterday.

Changing your prioritized books only affects the resources displayed on the RHS (right side) of the menu, assuming you have Logos 8.7 or greater (prior to that resources and actions were on the LHS).

The LHS of the current menu is populated from resource data and the datasets that you have, as they present information relative to the text you have selected. The RHS displays actions dependent on what you selected on the LHS.
