Hello 

I've digitized a Greek Qur'an. Now if I double click on words I have different kind of output. For me a totally mess. 

First: Logos find the word in a lexicon. For example ἀλήθεια

Second: Logos find the word in the LALS, if it is konjugated or declinated. For example Αποκάλυψη

Third: The search opens if the others have no entry. For example προσπαθούν

I understand that it opens the next from the list above if one is failed.

But why I'm not able to choose what I want? For example I want the LALS with the word ἀλήθεια. Why is there no short cut if this is the second on the list. 

Or I want to see ἀλήθεια in the search. Why I cannot make a right click and choose the serach instead of the lexicon which come up by double click?

For me this is a total mess.

Fabian:
First: Logos find the word in a lexicon. For example ἀλήθεια

Lemmas like this will be found in lemma-oriented lexicons like BDAG, DBL Greek

Fabian:
Second: Logos find the word in the LALS, if it is konjugated or declinated. For example Αποκάλυψη

These will be found in Analytical lexcons like LALS  (Septuagint), LALGNT (Greek NT), TDNT - but usually NOT in lemma-oriented lexicons

Fabian:
Third: The search opens if the others have no entry. For example προσπαθούν

That is not found in any lexicon (I couldn't find in any of my resources!)

It can't be helped that there are two or three types of lexicons and some words will be unique to GNT or Septuagint or non-bible Greek resources!

Prioritization determines which resource is used e.g.

DBL Greek - has ἀλήθεια

LALGNT - has ἀλήθεια

TDNT - Theological lexicon (does not have all the lemmas of GNT) - has ἀλήθεια

LEH LXX   (Greek-English Lexicon of the Septuagint) - has ἀλήθεια

LALS  - (Analytical Lexicon of Septuagint) - has ἀλήθεια

because I prefer GNT words to Septuagint, ἀλήθεια will open in DBL Greek.

But it is not a good idea to prioritize an Analytical lexicon first. So:-

LEH LXX   (Greek-English Lexicon of the Septuagint) - has ἀλήθεια

LALS  - (Analytical Lexicon of Septuagint) - has ἀλήθεια

DBL Greek - has ἀλήθεια

LALGNT - has ἀλήθεια

TDNT - Theological lexicon (does not have all the lemmas of GNT) - has ἀλήθεια

would be better.
