Okay, I'm trying to prioritize the LEH Lexicon so that it is used only for LXX texts, and BDAG so that it is used only for NT texts. I thought by putting (respectively) the ranges "Genesis - Malachi" [I've also tried the LXX order: "Genesis - Odes"] and "Matthew - Revelation" that I would achieve my objective, but at the moment it is using only LEH for all biblical texts since it is listed above BDAG.

What am I doing wrong?

The "in this range" box must match the "of this type" box. So you can only put Bible passages in "in this range", if you have "Bible" selected as "of this type".

What you need to do is leave those two boxes empty, but change "from this resource" to the LXX resource for LEH, and to the Greek NT for BDAG. (Actually, in practice you could probably just set the LXX one, prioritise that above BDAG, and leave BDAG to hoover everything else up).

The only problem with this is that you can't specify collections on the "from this resource" box, only individual resources. So if you use a couple of LXXs, you'll need a new entry for each one. And if you use Gottingen, you'll be there for a while :-)

Yes, I was afraid of that. I have Göttingen and was trying to avoid cluttering my priority window, but it sounds like I don't have any choice.

Thanks for your help.
