I Love the new root search function. I do however notice there is no option for Bible Word Study or to my lexicons from the right-click menu when I select root. I also note that in analysis view there seems to be no way to click a word (lemma or root) and generate a Bible Word Study. This feature was available in L4. Does anyone know if this is coming or not?

This is a great question Michael.  At the moment you can select root from the right click menu as you stated but you are forced to launch a BWS on the lemma and then launch a separate BWS for the root after the report runs from the BWS root section.  This is certainly redundant when you could just do this from the right click menu under root in the first place.

Hopefully this gets added soon.

We are considering adding the ability to run a BWS on a root in a future version of the software.

We don't currently allow opening a lexicon to a root from the context menu. This is generally because most dictionaries don't have good articles for roots and/or we haven't created an alignment between our root analysis and dictionary entries (to open the resource to the correct location).

This sounds like a regression; I will check if there is a bug report filed for this and open a new one if not.

Here is a reason that you might consider opening a lexicon to a root from the context menu IN CERTAIN CASES. If I click on mishpat in a Hebrew Bible (or on justice in a RI), I cannot link to the Theological Lexicon of the Old Testament article on sh-p-t which contains information on mishpat and is the only TLOT article to do so. It would be great to connect the sh-p-t root to the related article in TLOT. This will also need to be done for TDOT when it finally arrives in Logos form.

This is the same issue reported here: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/60243.aspx

I will respond in that thread.
