In Accordance I can have the GNT up as well as several translations. If I hover over a word in the Greek text it will highlight how it was translated in the other versions on the screen. Can you do this in Logos?

Hi Michele - and welcome to the forums

Michele Lewis:

Yes - using the Corresponding Words Visual Filter as shown below. Note there are a range of matching options - for what you describe here the best would be matching on the lemma. And also note you can choose whether this corresponding selection works by either hovering over the word or clicking it.

Then hovering over a word in the GNT causes the translation to be displayed in the various versions.

You can also hover over the English word to see the associated word in the Greek text.

Any matching words in the original resource or the translations will be displayed - not just the one you are hovering your cursor over.

If you just want the specific word, choose the Corresponding Selection Visual Filter. For this, you actually need to select the word, not just hover over it

Hope this helps - please post back if anything is not clear

Graham

  1. Select Visual Filters
  2. Set corresponding words options to your choice and/or
  3. Set corresponding selection

I have a similar question. When I hover over a word in my Greek text (NA28) I want to see the little gloss pop up. It used to do this (and in fact still does if I hover over a word in my English text), but it has gone away and I cannot figure out how to bring it back.

Update: After searching the forum some more, I see the there were specific problems with NA28 and the hover feature. However, I am having the same issue regardless of Greek text (Byzantine text or NA27).

Strange - I get the popup for NA27, for example

Do you have the Information Tool open? That would suppress the popup

Oddly I just discovered the opposite: When I open the information tool, then the popup returns. (I normally like to save screen real-estate by keeping that closed.)
