In other words, it would sometimes be nice to be able to have more than your first five dictionaries available from the right-click menu...especially when you've got a lot of specialized ones that you are juggling around (Bible Character Encyclopedias, Theology Dictionaries, Thematic Dictionaries, etc).  In light of some of the great suggestions from the blog lately that have to do with using prioritized dicionaries (thematic dictionary suggestion recently, Exhaustive Dictionary of Bible Names recently), it would be nice to have the option to choose between 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10 dictionary "slots" on the right-click menu.

Also, it would be nice to have a few slots dedicated to commentaries, rather than having to "give up" one of your Bible slots for use as a commentary slot if you want to utilize it that way.

*bump*

Does anyone else see any value in allowing an option to customize the number of dictionary slots available in the right-click menu?  Is it worth my putting it on UserVoice?  I know that if I want more than 5 dictionary entries, I can do a power lookup, but I really like as much information as possible being "at my fingertips" with a right-click.

Kknight78:
Bible Character Encyclopedias

If it is a Biblical persons name it will show up at the bottom on a right click as "person" so you can access Biblical people, places and things.  If you select that, a long list of dictionaries appears on the left side of the menu.  It would be nice if that happened for other words likely to show up in a Bible dictionary.  You could just call the right click category "Dictionary".  However, I suspect Logos would have to tag every word for that to happen.  I created a  guide just for Bible dictionaries which I access by a right click.  I love the access we have to our resources via a right click.  Anything done to improve that would get a ya-hoo from me.

Edit: I forgot to add that the long list appears for Biblical places and things (that are tagged) also.
