On the desktop, i often follow this path:

  1. Select a word in the English Bible text (e.g. "lowly")
  2. Right-click to do a Bible Word Study on "lowly"
  3. In the Greek Words section, select the sense of interest from the word ring (e.g. ταπείνωσις)
  4. This lists the lemma and some references. The lemma is hyperlinked to Bible Word Study, from which i can then follow links to Louw-Nida and other lexicons, see how else this word is translated, etc.

On the iPad, i can effectively do the same three steps. But now in step 4 the lemma is not hyperlinked, so i can't get back to the Greek lemma.

Am i missing something? Does anybody have another way to make this circuit? I can always use an interlinear text for my English reading, but then i don't get very many English words in the display (and i don't seem to be able to turn off the transliteration, Strongs, and other lines that i don't find helpful).

 On the iPad the Scripture references below the ring are hyperlinked.  You can go to them and then do a Bible Word Study on the lemma.

That gets me back to other verses that use the lemma, but since my preferred Bible is English, those texts are still English. So that just puts me back at step 1.

That is not a current feature of the mobile app.

Do you mean from Louw-Nida, BDAG, etc? If you click on the "Bible Word Study" button at the bottom, it will take you back. Is that what you were wanting?

Interlinear display options in mobile apps would be appreciated => Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear - can't display Hebrew ms only

My understanding is that you want to start with an English word that may have several different Greek words associated with it and do a Bible Word Study.  Then you want to be able to go from the Bible Word Study by way of a hyperlink to a lexicon and then come back to the Bible Word Study and hyperlink with a different lemma to a lexicon and then come back to the original Bible Word Study etc.  Because if you do what I suggested you lose the original Bible Word Study.  Is this correct?  We can't do that as far as I know, but it would be a nice feature.
