I am studying rhythm in the Greek New Testament and I am wondering if there is a way to display Greek accents and syllables in an interlinear.  There are 2 datasets that seem relevant (https://www.logos.com/features/greek-accents-syllables), but so far my attempts at a visual filter don't display the accents on the right syllables and I can't seem to figure out how to display the "Graphemes" label ("Each syllable in the active word, separated by a dash").

The best way to view the Syllables and Accents data is using the Information Window (Tools -> Information). I have mine set to update on click (the three-vertical-dot thingie, aka "kebab", has the settings). Then one can click on a term and see something like:

The information is attached to the word and sub-word highlighting of search hits is not presently possible. 

Hopefully this helps a bit. The Info Window is one of the most useful things to use to peek at the data available for a particular word or reference.

Thank you.  I have created a feature request for sub-word highlighting: https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app/posts/sub-word-highlighting

Are there any resources that include the Greek accents?

I'm sorry, that was a dumb question.  The accents are in the Greek text but I believe the notation is slightly different: ~ instead of ^

Displaying the individual syllables would still be helpful (ie. displaying the "Graphemes" label"

the look of the circumflex accent depends on the Greek font you use - e.g. Gentium Alt will maybe look more familiar to you. Just open the Program Settings (either from Tools or the application help menu) alongside your GNT and toggle the Greek Fonts in the Text Display section to find one you like:
