I'm looking at 2 Corinthians 1. I'd like to quickly  get to a map of Corinth just to see how that works.

I have New Bible Atlas and Nelson's Map Collection besides the Logos map sets. The former two seem not to have the names of cities or lands indexed so you can get to them without thumbing through the maps.

If I right click on Corinth in the Bible text, I get some look-up links and a list of my top Bible dictionaries, but nothing that goes directly to Bible Places or to maps, even if I select "Place" on the right context menu. Is this a matter of prioritizing my resources so maps will show up?

I have a guide open that has "Biblical Places". In the guide, Biblical Places seems to have Logos map images but not the others I mentioned.

Can anyone speak to whether this is going to be the norm? Does anyone know that the NBA and NMC get indexed some day? Or if the right-click-on-Bible-text will link to maps (or perhaps there is a way now, and I am not using it?)?

Have a great day,
jmac

I get a link to biblical places on a right click. What base package do you have?

The menu snatcher strikes again.

It's a shame that Bible Dictionaries do not have the same lookup.

I don't know if anyone else has the same frustration, but after happily linking to the map-series, you're left staring at the whole map and wondering where the desired place might be. If before linking, you quickly do a copy on the place-name, then using the 'find' on the Bible Places, it zooms in to the specific location similar to Google maps. Now, if they would sort the bottom-strip of maps in some sort of logical sequence. I did a search on the internet for alternative mapping and didn't find anything close to what Logos has.

You can zoom with Ctrl+= and Ctrl+-

Zooming with control +/- does indeed zoom. I was mentioning a previously expressed problem in that zooming in doesn't land you on the desired location similar to Google Maps. Instead you have to scan around manually (or use the find, as described). The one I was having trouble with was a location Solomon built on the trade routes well east of Palestine.

I think the following option would help if it were made available whenever a map that is searchable is displayed.

Yes that would be great.

I must have misunderstood you.  But the Find doesn't automatically Zoom to every location and then one has to manually zoom and scan eg. Gilgal is sometimes automatic but you can use Jericho (near Gilgal) at other times!

Phil's suggestion for "Zoom to location" would be ideal.
