I am a Logos 4 owner (mac edition presently running) and am having trouble getting the Bible Word Search functionality to work as it is shown on the Logos website.  I would like to be able to access the original language and, specifically, see Strong's information and definitions as shown on the picture on the website.  Right now, I get the modified pie graph and, if I click on a section, I get the cross references but no easy way to get to the definition.  To get definition information, I have to copy, paste and search the original language and then scroll through the results to find the right resource.  Based on what I see on the pics on the site, there has to be a better way.  What am I missing?

How are you getting to the Bible Word Study? The image below is from a Bible Word Study on λόγος. You can do a word study on a Greek word by using the Greek keyboard (an iPhone feature, not a Logos feature, enabled in the iPhone's Settings app) or using the transliteration prefixed by g:, e.g. g:logos. You can also touch and hold on a word in a Bible with interlinear data to bring up information on the original language word and do a Bible Word Study from there.

Thanks for the reply.  I see the problem I was having now.  The Bible translation I was using is not interlinear (HCSB).  Switching to the ESV works.  Separate question though, do you really get the audible option to pronounce the word?  Or is that a future feature?

Thanks again.

Yes, pronunciations are implemented.

A couple of quick questions based on this thread: I have Scholar's edition, so I assume I have the resource cited above. ("Pronunciation" does show up in the Tools menu.) So how then do I get the pronunciation option to show up in the iPhone, as shown in the screenshot above?

Also, how do I switch from Hebrew/Greek to "Translation," as shown in the screenshot above? I am using ESV. Even seached on "Word" to try to duplicate.

Try searching for "g:logos". The translation section shows up when you search for a Greek or Hebrew word, which is also when you'll see the pronunciation icon (though I think we only have Greek pronunciations at the moment). The Greek/Hebrew sections appear when you search for an English word.
