I am using still Logos 4.6c SR7.  I was trying to use the Word List generator to create a word list of Greek lemmas with English glosses.

Problem1: Limited resources shown.

I open the Word List window (File > New/ Word list) and click on the "Add" button at the top of the window. But when I try to select a resource from my Library for the "Add lemmas from" option, Logos displays only 2 options: NA26 (Nestle Aland, 26th edit.) and LHI (Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear). (The default resource offered initially is the ESV, which I have selected as my default Bible. But if I change it to one of the two available in the drop down list, it is not available to change back to the next time.)

Problem2: Fails to generate lists from Greek NT.

 If I select NA26 for "Add lemmas from", and the enter a "Reference" (like John 1:1-14, for example), it does not create any list. Neither does it create a list if I select that portion of text in the Greek New Testament (NA26) and choose the "...selected text" option under "Add words from".  If I select text in the Byzantine/Majority Textform Greek NT, and the choose "...selected text", it generates a list of the Greek lemmas and lists the count for each word, but includes no glosses. (The Greek lemmas display in the Card Front column, while the Lemmas column remains blank.)

What am I doing wrong?

I have in my Library perhaps 15 English Bibles, maybe 5 Spanish Bibles, 3 Greek NT versions, and BHS (in addition to the LHI).  

By the way, I am able to generate a Hebrew-English word list selected LHI for "Add lemmas from" and then typing a range of verses in the "Reference" box, complete with "Gloss" in English.

Thank you for any help!

Welcome Big Smile

Curious about OS X version ?

Logos 5 is free, but needs OS X 10.6.8 or newer => https://www.logos.com/support/logos5/mac/install

I'm sorry, I should have included my operating system. I am running on Windows 7. Is it possible to upgrade to a Windows 7 version of Logos5 for free?

Yes, it is available from https://www.logos.com/support/logos5/install 

And the Logos 6 core engine is due to be made available for free next week

OK, I now installed Logos 5 (5.2b SR-8) on my Windows 7 laptop.

However, I still am encountering the same hangup trying to generate Word Lists.

Problem1: Limited books from my library shown.

I open the Word List window (Documents > New/ Word list) and click on the "Add" button at the top of the window. But when I try to select a resource from my Library for the "Add lemmas from" option, Logos displays only 2 options: NA26 (Nestle Aland, 26th edit.) and LHI (Lexham Hebrew-English Interlinear). (The default resource offered initially is the ESV, which I have selected as my default Bible. But if I change it to one of the two available in the drop down list, ESV is not available to change back to the next time.)

Problem2: Fails to generate lists from Greek NT.

 If I select NA26 for "Add lemmas from", and the enter a "Reference" (like John 1:1-14, for example), it does not create any list. Neither does it create a list if I select that portion of text in the Greek New Testament (NA26) and choose the "...selected text" option under "Add words from".  If I open Byzantine/Majority Textform Greek NT, and select some text, and then choose "...selected text", (and leave the "Add lemmas from" set to ESV) it generates a list of the Greek lemmas and lists the count for each word, but includes no glosses. (The Greek lemmas display in the Card Front column, while the Lemmas column remains blank.)

What am I doing wrong?
