Right clicking on a word brings up amongst other things, the Lemma of a word. Doing that, I see five dictionaries there. Is there a way that I can get more than what is there and how? Will appreciate your help. Thanks!

I don't think you can get MORE resources, but you can change the resources listed… by prioritization.

Thread => searching strong's numbers has a prioritization example so right click lemma has a list of 5 resources while Strong's number has a different list of 5 resources.

For what you want, your best bet is to keep a Power Lookup window over on the side.

Then in the right-click menu, select that and it dumps mucho lexicons, complete with short blurbs.

Another alternative I tried, worked in REVERSE. I made a BWS with only a lemma section. That produced THREE lexicons (with room to spare). The right-click menu at least produces FIVE!

Another trick I use is to prioritize the least likely first (e.g. TLOT) and the most likely last (analytical lexicons).

Why don't you give me a screenshot of what you're telling me so I can be sure I'm following you. Thanks!

- I'm assuming you're using something like ESV (in the image below) or NRSV. 

- On the right-side of the screen is a Power Lookup panel from my Tools menu. Normally in its default opening, it simply 'follows' your Bible text. So in the first image, its looking up various note references in the ESV shown (prior to me selecting a word).

- I right-clicked 'creature' in the ESV, and selected lemma as you mentioned

- Then I selected on the left column of the popup, 'Power Lookup'

- The second image below shows the result, with a long series of lexicons listed by priority, along with initial blurbs.

Right-clicking an ESV word for the lemma and then selecting Power Lookup:

Resulting Power Lookup with a list of lexicons for the selected word:

Besides the other fine advice, if you open any lexicon, you can click on the parallel resources button (dark grey with two parallel lines, next to the 3 circle icon on the top of the panel), and instantly move from one lexicon to any other with the same entry. You can also create collections within which you can look for your favorite lexicons, or to stream-line your work-flow.

On the Power Lookup idea, you may notice some performance degradation if you have "Follow" selected (click the little triangle pointing down on the top of the tab). For the suggestion and instructions above, not following anything (i.e., select "None") works perfectly and won't slow down Logos' response. (The same can be said for other Tools in L4/5.)
