Power Lookup isn't producing any results for me.  Anyone else having issues?

It's working for me on 5.2b beta 3 for Windows.

Can you provide some more details - ideally a screenshot - showing an example resource where it isn't working?

Maybe - I thought I wasn't get results then couldn't recreate it.

Just played around with it a bit.  If I have it linked to A, and a bible linked to A, it works.  But I thought the function used to be that it would lookup based on which verse or word was clicked.

5.2b Beta 3 Mac OS 10.9.4

That was the way it worked last time I used it, but now it has become nothing more than a poor substitute for the Cross Reference section of the PG.

Sounds like the Information tool - have you tried that?

Yes. That's what I switched over to.  Interesting though that unless it is linked with a bible, I can't get it to display any results.

Can you expand on that?

I don't know what you mean by it being "linked to a bible"

In the screenshot below I am using a commentary and clicking on words in the commentary affect what is displayed in the Information tool

This is linked to "A": 

This is not linked to anything:

When I am in a Bible I get sparse results in Information - only when I hit a footnote. In other resources, my results are much more prolific. I have it set to Follow rather than a specific link set.

Sorry, I thought we were still talking about the Information tool not Power Lookup

You and I are both confusing the Information pane with Power Lookup. You might want to read http://wiki.logos.com/Power_Lookup

Thanks Jack.  It was definitely operator error on my part. The wiki link was helpful.
