What is the Right Click Menu?

  • The Right Click menu or Context menu is a pop-up menu which appears when you right click on a word in one of your resources.



  • It provides access to commands, guides and tools within Logos to help you with the word that you right clicked on.
  • On the right side of the Context menu are information Tabs.
    On the left side are the Commands which are available to the selected Tab.
  • You will see more or less Tabs depending on the word you right-clicked.
  • On both sides please pay attention to the scroll bar (if visible)
    This will appear when there is insufficient room to show all the Tabs and Commands.
