What is it?

With this feature jump from an English translation to Greek and Hebrew lexicons with one click. Build a layout you'll come back to over and over again by linking your favorite lexicons to your English Bible. You'll move seamlessly from the Bible you're reading to expanded definitions and discussions of the original Greek or Hebrew word behind the English translation.

How does it work?

Open your favorite Bible and lexicon side-by-side, add them to Linkset A in the panel menu, and begin clicking on words in the biblical text. 

Where can I learn more?

God Bless,

Where does one sign up to receive a post or link to the new features for Logos Now and how they work. I receive the email each month, but I do not see a link for haw the new features work. As a Logos Now subscriber, why am I constantly taken to the marketing page for Logos Now? I find that a bit annoying. There should be a page for subscribers to go for tutorials and information , and not to a marketing page every time they need to leartn more about Logos Now.

Thank you, have a great day!! God Bless You!!

We don't have an email sign up for this. But we do maintain a list of all the features, how they work, and tutorials on this page. Each time an email notification for new features goes out, know that you can go to the page I just linked to see the updates.

Nice! Which German Bible and dictionary are you able to link together?

I just got around to playing with this & found some unexpected behavior in my preferred layout...

My layout has several lexicons open, & each Greek lexicon is already paired (serially) with a favorite Hebrew lexicon so I don't have to worry about additional screen space when doing a lookup. I still know where to find them.

The 1st one that I set was BDAG, which worked perfectly. So I tried setting all the other lexicons to the same link set. I was unpleasantly surprised when the all opened to BDAG (instead of opening to the same word in the lexicon I wanted)!

For me, this behavior isn't what I want, though I'd like to be able to use the feature. How is it supposed to work when multiple lexicons are desired?

The Grace & Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

In this case, use the Multiple Resource feature: I created a series with HALOT and BDAG. Then created Multiple Resource sets for each.

This one for BDAG

And this one for HALOT

With 7.3 Beta 1, when I switch between NT and OT, I must then select the saved layout I need

It appears that the saved M-R sets is still a work in progress.

Saved multi-resource sets are working as intended. Similar to saved reference ranges in the search panel, they provide a quick way to select a set of resources that you've used before.

What you are running into here is that series navigation intentionally preserves the initial multi-resource settings when switching between resources in a series. Imagine how annoying it would be to have to set up the same multi-resource configuration for each book in a commentary series. In this case, you start with BDAG with a certain configuration. Then you switch to HALOT. It tries to preserve the multi-resource configuration, but is unable to do so because the two resources don't share a common type of milestone index. I believe this behavior has been around for a while.

I'll create a case to see if we can find a better way to handle this situation.

In that case, someone from the design team should try using this feature in a real-life Bible study

Erweiterte Interlinearbibel zur Lutherbibel 1984 has original language tagging that can be linked with Lexicons.

I'm running into the old "not responding" using this. I tried it with an older layout, unchecked Inline Interlinear, clicked on a word ... it works then clicking on another one and up comes the "not responding" again.

I tried opening a new layout - one bible opened with Vines and BDAG. Linking these altogether, I get the same problem. Put quickly, it's not working for me. Anyone with an idea as to why?
