Where did 'report a typo' go? I used to be able to right click a word and use the item in the context menu, but it's no longer there... That's where Help says it should be found. I think I've just been updated to 6.3; did it change then?

It is still there - but only works online.

Did you have an Internet connection when you tried it?

Yes. I have Tools > Program Settings > Use Internet set to 'YES'. But I don't see Report Typo any more...

OK, it's there... But that's waaaay too subtle. What's the reasoning behind having a scrolling context menu?Confused I think this is the first one I have ever encountered. It's not like there's not enough screen space to accommodate showing the whole list...

I haven't seen the reasoning behind it addressed in the forums (or elsewhere). Perhaps you should start a thread addressed to Faithlife about it?

Try putting the paragraph that contains the typo in and the report will show up. It works for me.

Would 'a thread addressed to Faithlife about it' go in the 'Suggestions' forum?

That depends upon your monitor!

The height of the context menu is designed to be half the height of your monitor - there was a brief discussion of this at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92662.aspx

Thanks for reference to the 'reasoning,' Graham. I wonder if 2/3 the height of one's monitor would show the whole list for a whole lot more users? Be that as it may, I submitted a Suggestion that basically recommends making the five(!) 'Search' items available with the more standard hierarchy-expanding 'arrow' that opens a sub-menu. That would collapse six lines into one, increasing the space available for the remaining context menu items currently hidden off the bottom of the scroll list.

I had the same issue reporting a typo in the LEB and it took me a bit of time to notice the scroll bar. I have a 17" monitor on my laptop but it was not big enough. Sad

Would 'a thread addressed to Faithlife about it' go in the 'Suggestions' forum?

That would be a good place for it, as would the Logos 6 forum, in which case you might want to start the thread title with "Dear Faithlife" or something to that effect.

Glad(?) it's not just me... You might want to share your experience here: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/106238.aspx, where I made my 'Suggestion'.

That link doesn't work Paul. Below is what I get when I click on it.
