What is the Power Lookup tool?

   Please watch the video Power Lookup

  • This tool will display references and footnotes from a resource as shown below.

    .
  • To open Power Lookup tool:
    1. Click on Tools in the top menubar.
    2. Click on Power Lookup in the drop down menu.
      .

        

 

Why does it jump from book to book?

  • As with Bibles, Commentaries and other resources it can be linked. There is a new link type (other than A, B, C, etc) which is called Follow. This is the default link for Power Lookup. So when the link is set to Follow, Power Lookup appears to jump from book to book.

    

  • Follow will display the references and footnotes for the current active resource. So if you click in a different resource, Follow will update its display for that resource. When in this mode you will notice a red Astrix in the tab.

              

  • You can set the link to None and right click on a resource and select Power Lookup in the pop-up menu to have it statically display info for that particular resource.

 

Power Lookup from the right click menu

  • In your resource if you right click on a word a pop-up menu will appear.
    Notice on the right that there are several category choices (Selection, Reference, etc).
    These categories vary depending on which type of resource that you are in.
  • Using the right click menu provides you with information on the word, reference, Strong’s number, Louw-Nida number, etc.
    See the categories below which you can use to open the Power Lookup tool to retrieve your information.

    • Note: In some cases you may not see your category on the right side of the pop-up menu
      1. Make sure that the resource that you are in supports the category that you are looking for.
        (e.g. Bibles don’t have Head Word, Dictionaries don’t have Lemma)

      2. Also don’t forget to check for a scrollbar in the category area



        1. Notice that the categories fill up the area

Linking Power Lookup

  • Linking Power Lookup works the same as most tools in Logos.

Follow

  • Follow allows Power Lookup to follow which ever resource that you click (resources which are navigated via Bible passages).
  • When Follow is selected, an Astrix appears in the window’s icon as shown below.

A,B,C,D,E,F

  • When linked to one of the standard Letters, it follows the Bible passage which the resource has in its reference box.
  • See Linking Resources.
  • If you are not familiar with Linking, please watch this video Bibles and Commentaries. About half way through it discusses Linking which is a feature that links different resources together so that they will track each other (as you move along in a Bible then if the commentary is linked, it will track where you are in the Bible).

None

  • When None is selected, it tries to lookup info on passages in your open resources.

Pop-up Menu

  • When you click the right mouse button in a resource, a Pop-up Menu appears. Now if you select Reference (on the right side of the Pop-up), you should see Power Lookup on the left side of the Pop-up Menu. Then when you click it, Power Lookup will show info on passages in your open resources.

 

Examples using Follow

  • When you have the Power Lookup tool open and set its linking to Follow, the tool will update whenever you click in a different resource.
  • Below are a few examples. Try opening a variety of resources and see how the Power Lookup tool works with them.

In NKJV

  1. In this example we have the New King James Version of the Bible open.
  2. We have the Power Lookup tool open with its linking set to Follow.
  3. Notice the footnote e, when you hold your mouse over it the pop-up reference appears. Also note that in the Power Lookup tool the reference e is present.
  4. Notice in the Power Lookup tool the reference e is present and the references that it referred to are shown under the reference.
  5. On the page showing in the NKJV there are 3 other references (f, g, h) visible. These are also shown in the Power Lookup tool. But the last two references are not visible in the tool. You can scroll down in the tool to see these references.



  • As you scroll or page down in the NKJV, the Power Lookup will update to show the references which are visible on the page you are viewing in the NKJV.


In Bible Knowledge Commentary

  • When you have Power Lookup open and set the linking to Follow, you can click in your commentary (the BKC is shown in this example) and the Power Lookup tool will show references that are visible on the screen of your commentary in the Power Lookup tool.
