Is there any way to do a Factbook search from within a resource? Instead of a copy and paste or typing the word after you open Factbook, it would be easier to right-click a word in a resource and go from there.

Agreed. There is usually a link to a topic guide which will link to factbook for more information.

I find that the Factbook is more thorough than the topic guide. I mean it's not a big deal. Maybe I'm too used to point and click and the extra step of first opening Factbook is more of a personal impatience thing than anything else. My glass house. :)

I agree with you... just offering  workaround in the interim.

A second workaround would be to right click on the word then click on "search everything" and the fourth category down contains results from Factbook.

But I agree having a "Factbook" option in the menu would be nice.

If you right click and there is a tag of a person place thing or topic click those in the contextual menu then it gives the option to open that topic in the Factbook.  Hope this helps.

What I was meaning is that this option is already there.

As David said, it is already there if you select something that would have a Factbook entry on the right side.

But it doesn't show Maps. When I clicked on "Gennesaret," and then clicked on Factbook, it only showed 3 from the Atlas but none of the original maps that we had. And those 3 from the Atlas really were not that helpful.

Oddly enough, that option doesn't show up for me even on that exact same verse.

Did you click the tag?

I'm glad this thread is here... I was just thinking it'd be good to have a Factbook search available for any word, via right click.

Factbook is a curated subset of Biblical data: Topics, People, Places, Things, Events, Biographies, Cultural Concepts. It won't have data for arbitrary words.

As David and MJ mentioned, any tag that can be opened in Factbook will have a Factbook entry if you select the correct item in the context menu.

I'm using the NRSV. But I just checked with the NIV and ESV and nothing changed.

There is no tag, that's the problem. Here's a screenshot:

You need the Biblical Referents dataset, which is available in L6 Silver and up. If you have it, you'll see something like this on the About Logos Bible Software page. Can you check and see if you have this?
