I have a custom layout for my Greek studies that I used while taking Greek I and II this past school year.  I've been thinking about adding to this custom layout and indeed have (i.e. I included BDAG).  Can I have an area in this layout that includes the sentence diagramming tool?  Or, is the sentence diagramming tool only accessible as a floating window?  Thank you and Lord bless!

You can choose where new windows open up in Logos in two ways:

First, instead of clicking on a menu item, you can drag the menu item to the place in the layout where you want it to open:

Or, you can right click on the menu item, and you will see a menu with choices for how to open the new window:

Selecting "in a new tab" will open it in the main window layout instead of a floating window. Note, that some menu items will default to a new tab and some will default to floating windows by design.  The first item on that menu (the "New" option) uses the default, which is the same as clicking on the menu item.


Remember, though, each sentence diagram uses it's own tab/window, so if you put a sentence diagram in the layout, it's just that one diagram.  New ones will have to placed where you want them each time you open them.

Could you share your layout with us????  I would be interested in what you put together.

My layout for Greek studies is very simple.  I have three panels.  The first panel is on the left hand side and contains all my Greek bibles.  The second panel is on the right hand side and takes up 50% of the right.  This panels contains English Bible translations.  The third panel is below this panel and contains BDAG.  I have linked the Greek and English panels.  That's my very simple Greek New Testament Study layout.  I'm sure it can be improved and am willing for some suggestions.

For Greek study, like to use visual filters for Logos Greek Morphology with Lexham Discourse Greek New Testament (LDGNT), then open other resources as desired:

My custom styles in "GREEK MORPHOLOGY" highlighting palette reflect grammatical usage; many Greek words have 2 or more highlights, need to look carefully for discernment.  Am aware of Greek spelling paradigms, but do not have them memorized.

Displaying Louw-Nida #'s provides contextual (semantic) gloss, with right click option to choose lemma, then open other lexicons (including BDAG, if in top 5 prioritized lexicons).  Thankful Scholar's Gold and above includes United Bible Societies (UBS) handbooks with translation insights.

Louw-Nida numbering is later scholarship than BDAG, dreaming of a reformatted BDAG for Logos digital use that is much easier to read (integrated with Louw-Nida #'s would be awesome).  When BDAG does not include verse reference in scholarly notes, then BDAG is like several lexicons and dictionaries with list of word meanings, need to consider context for appropriate meaning.

Thankful for revised edition of "The Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament" that includes Louw-Nida # grouping with all occurrences of a Greek word plus cognate words (with right click option for lemma).  Blog announced => Revised Edition of the Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament
