Can somebody help me.

I am trying to link BW 8 to Libronix Gesenius Lexicon.

This is the link I am using, but this do not open the Lexicon on the lemma I am searching:

// External Link #26
[Logos Gesenius Lexicon]
Operation = Open
Directory = NULL
File = libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|lang=he|scheme=beta|res=LLS:GESENLEX
Parameters = NULL
MenuLocation = Browse Window Hebrew
TextType = Hebrew Text
MapToVersion = WTT
Lookup = Lemma
MenuText = Logos Gesenius Lexicon
Enabled = 1

I think there is a problem sending Hebrew lemmas from BW. The last I played with it I couldn't figure out what it was sending. Also, one would need to know in what format Libronix expects to receive a Hebrew word (font character set, left to right or right to left, vowel pointing, etc.). Then of course it would depend to which lexicon entry the lemma is linked.
(see http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3353 )

Eventually someone may understand it enough to write an intervening conversion script.

Another approach would be to run the Libronix Exegetical Guide for a given verse. For a way to do that from BW see thread http://www.bibleworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3402
