Thread: Linking to Logos-Liddell-Scott-Jones

  1. #1

    Default Linking to Logos-Liddell-Scott-Jones

    Dear all,

    I've carefully read the threads on this, but I must be missing something. I'm trying to be able to look up a Greek word from BW7 to my LSJ in Logos. I've got it to the point where it will open up the Libronix platform, but even though I've tried several different ways to get it to go, it will not open LSJ. When I manually open LSJ, it also will not bring up the Greek word in question.

    Any thoughts (besides, "you should have waited for the LSJ module on BW to come out!" I couldn't wait. Now I wish that I had!)

    puzzled in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

    Default Linking to the LSJ in Logos

    Hi Chris.

    The first step is to open up the ELM (External Links Manager). Do this by either clicking proper button: , or go to the "Resources" menu item and select "Edit external links":

    This will open up the ELM:


    Click the "New" button.

    Select options and enter information as shown in the screen shot above [note fields in the red boxes]. Copy the following line of code into "Web page, file to run or executable to run" field.

    Code:
    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.30.25
    Another option is to open your ShellExec.txt file. This file is found in your c:\program files\bibleworks 7\init directory. At the very bottom of the text, paste the following code.

    Code:
    //
    // External Link #24
    //
    [Liddell-Scott-Jones (Logos)]
    Operation = Open
    Directory = NULL
    File = libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.30.25
    Parameters = NULL
    MenuLocation = Browse Window Greek
    TextType = Greek Text
    MapToVersion = NULL
    Lookup = Lemma
    MenuText = Liddell-Scott-Jones (Logos)
    Enabled = 1
    You will probably have to renumber the "External Link #" (second line, in green). Make sure this is a unique number sequential to the number of the previous external link.

    Save the file.

    You should be able to right-click a word in a Greek text, select the "Liddell-Scott-Jones (Logos)" option, and open up to the correct entry in the LSJ in Libronix.

    Note that this "right click" will only work in versions that have a corresponding morphological version (e.g., BGT & BGM, PHI & PHM, etc.).

    For more information about linking to Libronix, see the Logos documents: Linking to Libronix books from other applications and Web Linking to Libronix.

    Default BDAG, EDNT, TDNT links

    I forgot to note that you can also link to BDAG, EDNT and TDNT using a similar set up.

    To do this, you would have to replace the last set of numbers with the appropriate code.
    Code:
    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.30.25
    Replace the red text given in the link with the red text below:
    46.30.18 (for BDAG)
    46.10.26 (for EDNT)
    46.10.16 (for TDNT)
    You would have to make a new entry in the ELM for each dictionary.

    Hi Jim.

    Thank you for your reply. I followed your steps, and it appears that I was on track in my previous attempts. Having retraced my latest attempt by going through your steps, it appears that I had done everything as you are now recommending.

    Still, however, as before, when I right click on "Liddell-Scott-Jones (Logos)" after I've highlighted a Greek word in BGT, it will open Logos (since it wasn't previously opened), but it will go no further. It won't open LSJ, and it (obviously then) doesn't open up to the requested Greek word in LSJ. Any further thoughts? I've double checked my code in the "Web page, File to open, or executable to run" window, and it matches the one that you gave.

    Chris

    Default Link to another Logos resource

    Hi Jim
    Thanks for your wonderful instructions here. It worked first time for me.
    Now, can I border you with a further question on how to link to other books within libronix?

    I would like to link to EDNT - exegetical dict. of the New Testament. This one should be tagged as well so I can call up the word in question directly.

    What do I chance in the line code?

    Also, what if I want to call up all other non-greek resources - like my IVP dictionaries - can that be done from the English text in BW? I guess I am asking for two things:
    - can I look up 'carpenter' in a specific libronix book as well?
    - can I search all my libr. books for 'carpenter' - from within BW?


    Thanks!

    Morten

    Default also...

    I have not been able to figure out how to do a general "search" from BibleWorks into Libronix. You would probably need to find out from Libronix how to do this. You may want to check out the documentation on their web site, and post a question to their newsgroups.

    Hi, thanks Jim
    Well, the general search might be a problem then, if you could not figure it out!
    However, while your setup works perfectly for LSJ, then it have a problem with the EDNT. It keeps calling up the same word (psyke..., for some reason).

    I have typed in the exact same information as for LSJ with the exception of the line:
    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|la ng =el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.10.26

    Can you see what is going on here? Why does it call up the same word?

    Default Not sure what to tell you, except for the spaces...

    Here's the entry in my ShellExec.txt file:
    Code:
    //
    // External Link #27
    //
    [EDNT (Logos)]
    Operation = Open
    Directory = NULL
    File = libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.10.26
    Parameters = NULL
    MenuLocation = Browse Window Greek
    TextType = Greek Text
    MapToVersion = NULL
    Lookup = Lemma
    MenuText = EDNT (Logos)
    Enabled = 1
    This code works for me. I noticed that in the code you copied that you have spaces in the file link (see red underscores in "...|la_ng_=el|..."):
    Code:
    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|la_ng_=el|scheme=beta|res=LLS:46.10.26
    Check your code to make sure that there are no spaces. I tried the code as you have it, and it just opens the EDNT without going to the proper lemma.

    Try copying the entire ShellExec entry that I have above. Be sure to rename the External Link # so that you do not duplicate an External Link number in your present ShellExec file.
