How do I get Philo's Greek morphology to show the high lighted word referenced in BDAG?

In BDAG under the word σημαινω Philo is referenced. But when I open Philo's morphology or even in the text translated into English, the word in both English and Gk. are not high lighted.

It's not a big deal if you can read the original languages (my Greek is way better than my Hebrew) but I was just wonder if there was a way to have the original or even the English come up high lighted.

If it's not doable, then how do I know which word in the English translation is the original Greek word? I can see it in the Greek text, but not the word that is translated into Philo's English.

I thought I'd take a swing at your question: haven't a clue.  Sure, I wasn't aware, absent a search or Bibles, there'd be cross-highlighting. And of course, I had to prioritize Philo-morph, just to make sure I didn't know.

Plus there's my broken Explorer panel that doesn't lead or follow, no matter the choice of links. Sigh. Your question hasn't been easy.

But a big thanks to you, I was unaware of this curious volume: https://www.logos.com/product/5891/new-testament-backgrounds 

I had no awareness Philo and wealth were not synonymous. Who'd of thought?

The Visual Filter "corresponding words" may work provided:-

  • The Philo Greek resource is open at, or near, the reference in the lexicon i.e. the word is visible in Philo
  • you click/hover the word in the lexicon; and
  • they are the same word (only surface text is supported for lexicons).

The Visual Filter "corresponding selection" works with words, but does not apply to lexicons. It could work between Philo Greek and Philo English, provided:

  • The English resource has the underlying Greek
  • both resources are at the same reference; and
  • you select the appropriate word.

e.g. Lake's Apostolic Fathers in English vs. Lake's Apostolic Fathers in Greek

Thank you, Dave!  'Logos Now'.  And yes, Philo-morph doesn't match at the surface.
