Here is something challenging. The „Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia: A Reader's Edition“ has a beautiful verse division, which helps your to see the structure of the sentences and the poetic form.

What they do is actually very simple. They separate every sentence according the masoretic tropes. For example, division after: Pitecha, Zafek Katon/Gadol, Segol and Etnachta.

Could logos make the same layout for the LEH? If a visual division is not possible because of the empty space it takes, than I suggest to colour the verse parts with different colours or by just hovering over them with the mouse. What do you think? Here more samples:

Mendel Itkin:

I had hopes that the cantillation coding could be used to create a visual filter that did this. Unfortunately, the cantillation coding is supported in the Syntax Search. See 

  • Brannan, Rick. Lexham Hebrew Bible: Cantillation Analysis Documentation. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2017.
  • Lexham Hebrew Bible: Cantillation Analysis Graphs

But it is clearly possible, perhaps as a built in visual filter. Enter a request in the suggestions forums.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
