What is the best way to incorporate the Lexham Theological Wordbook into word studies with logos.I can't get it to show up on my bible word study guides. On a verbum training video, it was suggested that i could set send hperlinks here with that dictionary, and simply double click on a word in my bible and it would jump to the term.  However that is not working. Thanks in advance.

Looks like you are seeing the same bug Dave flagged at https://community.logos.com/forums/p/153439/934228.aspx - and Faithlife are looking into that

That should work if you click on a word in LTW. Can you give an example where it doesn't work?

An example would be if i am in NASB and have open the Lexham Theological Wordbook set to "send hyperlinks here", when i double-click on a term such as "troubled" in John 14.1, it doesnt jump to the term.  Rather it opens the Complete Word Study Dictionary by Spiros Zodhiates.

Having thought about this a bit more I don't think it is to do with hyperlinking but more to do with resource prioritisation.

The word "troubled" in your example isn't in the LTW index (as far as I can see). How about if you try the word "love" in John 14:15?

As Graham noted, the concept of trouble isn’t among those presented in the LTW. I think you’ll find the LTW very limited in the coverage you seem to desire due to its intended audience. I recommend, if you have access, resources such as BDAG and/or NIDNTTE which are available through the right click menu as shown:

Logos Series X Pastor’s Library | Logos 3 Leader’s Library | Logos 4 Portfolio | Logos 5 Platinum | Logos 6 Feature Crossgrade | Logos 7 Essential Upgrade - Large | Logos 8 Methodist & Wesleyan Platinum and Academic Professional

My workaround to get more use from LTW is to make it a "guest" panel in Multiview with TLNT as primary for the New Testament.  For the Old Testament in a separate Multiview tab make LTW a "guest" panel with TWOT as primary.  Assign to the same Linkset as your bible. One needs to have the Starter feature set or a Logos Now subscription for Multiview and link lexicons features. I find LTW will sometimes have an entry when TLNT, TLOT or TWOT has an entry for a word.

I also put TLNT and TLOT in a Series I typed a name for, in their book info (resource information), so that its one Multiview panel can respond to NT or OT Bible words selected in the bible.  Your collection of theological lexicons or theological wordbooks may lend itself to this approach.

Hi Kristine,

I use the same work around except the TLNT is much more limited in scope than the LTW. So I use the Lexham Analytical as the main window with LTW as the guest. I have the TLNT as a guest of BDAG. Just a suggestion to try if you have the other resources.
