Here is an example of what I get on a Latin or Greek non-Biblical reference:

However, a similar Syriac case behaves quite differently. Data missing on the left hand side. Notice lookup option on the right hand side. Try it. Hey, the information is available after all - it's just not showing. This kind of inconsistency makes it nearly impossible to learn to actually use Logos ... one is always having to inspect the screen to see where it got hidden this time, or if there is missing coding to report, or . . . And the task that I am trying to achieve is relatively simple - make a list of the transcriptions available in my library.

It's not similar.

In the former case, the Latin resource has a morphological analysis embedded in the resource. (This may have been autogenerated, hence the high number of alternate morph codes that are shown, but I'm not sure.)

In the second case, there is no morph/lemma associated with the Syriac text, so nothing appears on the context menu. Your top Syriac dictionary happens to be an analytical lexicon that gives morph and parsing information. 

A similar situation would be hovering over "VULGANLEX" under "Look up" in a Latin resource and seeing what a Latin Analytical Lexicon offers.

I understand but would question the usability/consistency from the user perspective. However, since it is Syriac it is not worth perusing.
