A very useful feature of Logos 9 is to look at a Greek word in the NT and in the same layout (in a second 'translation' panel) access that same word in the LXX. 

Is it possible to do the reverse? That is to be in the OT, look up a Hebrew word and Greek in the LXX (in separate 'translation' panels) then in the same layout select the corresponding Greek word in the LXX and get a list of the places where that same word is used in the NT?

Try clicking one of the segments in the LXX translation ring and then click the heading of that section to open another BWS

This actually produces a BWS with no results in the translation ring (I'm not sure if this is expected behaviour - it seems strange)

Click the word in the box at the top and select the lemma from the resulting dropdown

This will then populate the BWS with the information I believe you are looking for

Thanks very much. LXX to NT is not as good as Nt to LXX but this certainly helps. This is definitely helpful. I hope that one day Logos will provide the function to do this directly.

Martin,

If I'm understanding correctly, here are four more things you can try in addition to Graham's suggestion:

1) look up a Hebrew word in the Lexham Analytical Lexicon of the Hebrew Bible and scroll down to the "Greek Alignments" at the bottom of the entry;

2) look up a Greek word in the Lexham Analytical Lexicon of the Septuagint and note the "Hebrew Alignments" near the top of the entry; 

3) look up a Greek word in the Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament and note the Hebrew lemmas near the top of the entry;

4) open the Swete Septuagint and hover on a Greek word while noting both the Greek and Hebrew lemmas and parsings at the bottom. (The Septuagint with Logos Morphology shows only the lemmas at the bottom of the page.)
