Can you do a Greek word Find using greek transliteration (g:xxxx) or is that only for the main Search box?  I can't seem to use the g:xxxx trick in the locator bar box of a greek lexicon.  Thanks!

I never tried that before, but apparently that isn't possible.  You could, however, do a search of a Greek bible then click on the word.

Or use basic search and restrict the search to just the lexicon you wish to use and then click on the result to open it.

Or type into the main command box   look up g:xxxx       and the drop down will link to your prioritized lexicon at the appropriate place.

George, did you know you can double click on the lemma in your reverse interlinear Bible to open your prioritized lexicon?

Since I never use an interlinear, NO.

Or do a Basic Search in a Lexicon collection.

Wiki page Example Collections has some lexicon examples (personally use type:Lexicon)

If it's a lexicon entry you want, and you don't want to switch to a Greek keyboard, I would think the fastest way would be to open the TOC and locate the word there.

I do the same. However a g:xxx search would be much easier.

The easiest is to switch keyboards.  All it takes is (on my computer) <alt-lft sft-2> to switch to Greek and <alt-lft sft-1> to return to English (Well, any Latin based script).  What could be easier?  Certainly not searching the contents panel for a word.  I'm not sure that the g:xxx method would be any easier since I'd need to transliterate from the Greek as I typed.  No, switching keyboards is the best solution.

I certainly agree with that. Though if I just took the time to learn where to find the non-obvious Greek letters, it would be pretty easy to do it with a Greek keyboard as well, switching with cmd-spacebar. It doesn't seem to care about the accents (I just checked), so one wouldn't have to worry about getting those right.

Hebrew, of course, is a completely different matter... For me. Not for you, obviously.
