When I have NA28 or UBS5 open and hover over a Greek word, at the bottom of the pane the parsing of that word appears as well as an English gloss. However, what exactly appears seems to differ per resource in terms of order and components:

  • NA28/UBS4: parsing - Greek word - LN - English gloss
  • UBS5: parsing - Greek word - English gloss (no LN)
  • Tischendorf: Greek word - parsing - English gloss (no LN)
  • Elzevir: Greek word - Strong - parsing (no LN, no English gloss)
  • SBLGNT: Greek word - parsing - LN - English gloss


  1. What determines which info is shown in which order for which resource?
  2. Is it possible to change the info that's being displayed?

I could ask similarly for the Hebrew resources.

You can't change it. It's built into the resource.

You can change glosses in a Word List, but that is a user document and shouldn't affect the metadata in the software.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.
