For training purposes I have prioritized the resources below. So, when I right-click on an English word, like parable (in Matthew 13:31 NIV), I would expect the All Nations Dictionary to be given as an option under Look Up.

However, that resource is ignored in the Look Up section, even though it has an English Headwords indexing scheme.

What is wrong in my setup or in my expectations?

- I have checked the indexing scheme
- I have checked that the word parable is in the All Nation Dictionary

Any chance you are indexing? I do not have that resource to try and duplicate the behavior and cannot find it on the Logos store.

I don't have the required dictionary. Can you show its Index portion of the information panel so I know it has an English headword index. Then can you do a context menu on parable to show that it is properly tagged as a headword?  Okay, you can just check for yourself but those are the actions that most likely provides the explanation.

Yes, it has the English headwords indexing scheme, and the word parable is also a headword.

The prioritization should work. The dictionary doesn't appear to have a Reference box and/or there may be an indexing issue.

Hide the dictionary, restart Logos, and then unhide it. It should re-download. If it doesn't index, type reindex All Nations Dictionary in the Command/GO box and hit Enter.

Is this a Personal Book rather than a Logos resource? (I noticed the unfinished comment). Any chance that error messages in compiling would point us to the problem?

I did both things, but it didn't work out.

It is not a personal book. It is a part of a special collection Translator's Workplace, made for SIL International. But it still is a Logos Resource.

Does it have a reference box, where you input dictionary words?

For training purposes I have prioritized the resources below.

As an aside, your Prioritization could be improved.

The IVP Bible Background Commentary is listed under "Top Versified", but it clearly has headwords, as it acts like a "Top Topical" resource. You can used Advanced Prioritization to restrict it to Versified references, as below

Right click it, select "Set prioritization.....(advanced)" and select Bible as shown above. Now, it won't respond to headwords. You might do the same with the 2x UBSH resources, if they are also versified.

Thanks, Dave, I was indeed troubled by that as well ;-).

Yes, it does. And it even has the other resources as parallel resources!

This should be fixed now.
