Hi, sorry if this has been covered, but I'm REALLY struggling with a change that I just noticed, as I think my Logos must have just updated.

I usually right click on a word and my favorite Greek lexicons usually pop up on the context menu. It makes it super easy to look words up in my favorite lexicons.  Where did they go?!  I right click on it now and it shows a bunch of stuff...but my lexicons are gone entirely.  I really need this back.  If there is something I am missing, please, please help.

I am extremely visually impaired, so these little changes make a huge difference for ruining my experience.  Please help.

The context menu did change quite significantly in Logos 8.7

The right/left sides have changed - so words are now selected on the left and resources are looked up on the right.

Lexicons are still available but they all appear on one line (in the "Look up" section) instead of each one being on separate lines

I include a screenshot showing this with the lexicons outlined in red - apologies if you are unable to see this due to your visual impairment

Lovin' my L7. I am SO stubborn (and happy)!  That left side looks to a L8-newbie, like 'maybe I need something more efficient.

Appreciate all your work, Graham. Too often, I see a question, and think, oh wow, this one's got to be either Graham or Dave.

Aaron,

Something you might find really helpful, at least I did.

Open your preferred Bible and your Bible Word Study Guide

Set them both to Link Set A.

Then click on the word in your Bible and the guide will open to that Gk/Hb word and you will have your Lexicons along with translation wheels, etc.

Just a thought.
