Greetings!

  1. When I double-click a word in a Greek NT (e.g. NA27) it only opens one lexicon, the first on my priority list. Is there a way to specify the number of lexicons I want opened, like there is in L3?
  2. Is there a way to change the lexicon used for the definition in morphologies? For example, the NA27 automatically uses L-N in the morphology pop-up window. 

Thanks!

No. You can prioritize a number of Lexicons but the double-click will only open #1. A maximum of 5 lexicons will appear on the context menu after you right click a word and select the Lemma tab on the right. Choose any of these.  Alternatively create a Parallel Resource set of your lexicons and use the right and left arrow keys to move between lexicons in the same tab.

The LN number that is shown is included in the text and provides a context sensitive definition for the lemma; right click to see all the "hidden" information**. The morphology code eg CLN has a default expansion based on a system file.

** there is no alternative to the L-N lexicon for LN numbers, but you can still switch between other lexicons as described above.

As Dave said, it will only open the most highly prioritised one. But when it does, you can double click in the blank space on its tab to open the next one, double click again to open the third, and so on.

If you mean the English gloss that appears when you hover over a word (along with parsing information, etc.), this is hard-coded into the resource. It's not coming from LN, it just is written next to the LN number. Different resources will show different glosses (or no glosses at all). I suspect it's come from the same source as The Lexham Analytical Lexicon to the Greek New Testament.

Another little trick is to keep a folder in favorites with your favorite lexicons in it. It is best to drag them from the library into the folder.  Then, with the folder closed, left click and hold it down and drag the whole folder to the pane you want it in.  Then all of your favorite lexicons appear where you want them.  You will then need to link them, together.  If it is helpful, you can do the same with Bibles, Bible dictionaries, study Bibles, etc.

Another trick that sounds pretty useful, but doesn't seem to work on Mac...

Probably because it's undocumented. :-)  The Mac devs need to read the Undocumented features thread.

Yeah... I'll make a Mac thread about a number of these small things some time later, when I find the time.

Or wait... You're not saying this is the same trick that's in the Undocumented features thread? I got the impression that that one was about double-clicking in the blank space to the right of the open tabs, in order to open in a new tab, while this one was about double-clicking in the blank space on the open tab, in order to open in the same tab. Did I get that wrong?

Double clicking on the open tab does nothing.  I'm pretty sure Mark was referring to double-clicking in the space to the right of the "+".

OK. Good to know. One thing less missing in Mac. Though I still think it was a pretty good idea, even if it was a misunderstanding... Wink

Thanks everyone.  Except for being accused of being lazy, these were helpful tips.  I'm still learning a lot of features as I go along.
