Thinking Look up had been removed from the redesigned 8.7 Context menu, a fellow Logos user emailed me asking, What’s up with Look up?
Actually Look up is still on the right-click menu, and it’s better than ever!
Let me show you:
- Open an interlinear Bible like NASB (A) to a passage such as Ruth 2:1 (B)
- Right-click on a word like Naomi (C)
- Click Selection Naomi from the left side of the Context menu (D)
- Click the arrow to the right of Look up (on the right side of the Context menu) (E) to display up to 5 resources containing an article about Naomi (F)
- Rest the cursor on a resource abbreviation (G) to see a preview of the article (H)
- Click the resource abbreviation to jump to the article
Pretty cool, eh? You can control the resources being displayed through your prioritized resources in the Library.
Now try this:
- Right-click on wealth in Ruth 1:1 (I)
- Select the Hebrew lemma (the word with the ring icon) on the left side of the Context menu (J)
- Notice abbreviations to Hebrew dictionaries in the Look up section on the right (K)
Just in case you didn’t know, Look up is a “shortcut search,” which means “look up my word in a dictionary.” I think you can see that shortcut got ever better with the new 8.7 right-click menu!
The 8.7 update contained numerous changes especially a new selection menu and a redesigned context menu. You can go here to view a FREE webinar regarding these menus.
