One of the more useful features of Logos USED TO BE how easy it was to look at all the occurences of a Greek root word. This way I can EASILY see how it used throughout the NT and get a range of meaning. I'll admit the menu system actually looks like it could be faster and better in L4, but do I really need to search " 'o" 6,000 times? For whatever reason, Logos has now inserted the article over any word with one. So you right click on a word, click on the strongs number and find all in this resource, and instead of looking up the Greek word I wanted, I find the 6,000+ occurences of "o." Really? Why would I want to do that? This seems to something that anyone who wanted to use this tool to study the Bible would NOT want. So how did it get programmed into this software?

All that to say, can you please take the articles out so that I can easily search the Greek word. Yeah, I know there are other ways to do this, but this is counterintuitive and is one of the MANY reasons why L4 just doesn't feel right, like the people who made it don't actually use it.

You need be be sure you are clicking on the correct Strong's number after you right click.  If a noun in English has both an article AND a noun associated with it in the interlinear, both words will show up in the right-click menu.  Unfortunately, the first one listed is usually the article (since it comes first in the text)...the second is the noun.  Make sure you pick the right one:

Does that help?  Perhaps you understood that already, but I think the article needs to stay there, otherwise how would you access it? and it would be misleading if it wasn't (the article is important).

Thanks for that clarification. The interesting thing is my screen does not show as much information as your picture does. So that second Greek # is not listed as on your screen. I'm not sure why that is, but there are several things that don't seem to fully appearing in boxes on my Logos 4

You probably have a very small display (are you using a netbook)? You may need to scroll the context menu to see the second lemma.
