Original Languages Keyboard Selector Added to Search

If you work in the original languages of Hebrew and Greek then you may very well appreciate the NEW keyboard selector added to the Search panel in the recent Logos 8.8 update.

Check this out:

  • Click the Search icon in the Go box (A) to open the Search panel (B)
  • Set the search type to BibleBasic, or Morph (C)
  • Click the new keyboard icon in the far right of the Search box (D)
  • Notice you can select a Hebrew or Greek keyboard (E)
  • Click Greek as the keyboard (F)
  • Type logos in the Search box
  • Notice the Greek letters appearing in the Search box (G)
  • Select an item from the drop down list if you so desire (H)

For even more power, you can move through the various keyboards with this keyboard shortcut:

  • PC: Ctrl + Alt + Space
  • Mac: Ctrl + Cmd + Space

Please note, everything I just discussed applies equally to Inline Searching!

  1. this is great.
    except that if you already have the logos keyboard software installed, they are not the same. the Logos keyboard software uses phonetic placement, not the international layout.

    • Thanks for the feedback, Brent. We went with the SIL layout for the first iteration of the keyboard selector. We left open the possibility of adding more keyboard mappings in the future, so you would be able to choose which one you prefer.

  2. Stephanus Karnadhi says

    Thank you for this keyboard selector.
    Years ago I installed Hebrew greek keyboard software, and it messed up my default keyboard, and it is still messed up even after I uninstalled the software. So, this new feature will safe many from possible incompatibility.
