FACTBOOK: DICTIONARIES ARE IGNORED

There are two problems with factbook
1. first, factbook does not always pull up entries in ABD. sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't even though in both cases there is a specific heading in ABD

2. second, factbook NEVER pulls up entries in some dictionaries like:
https://www.logos.com/product/6374/a-dictionary-of-the-bible even though they are priorized to the top I resources

    yes, Logos search does not shows every 'main article' on a topic of all the academic dictionaries I have, such as:

    Encyclopedia Britannica
    Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek
    Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics and Philosophy of Religion
    Pocket Dictionary of Biblical Studies
    Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms

    Even the everything search does not show everything. Why not?

    On 1): if you find cases where ABD linking doesn't work the way it should, please email data@logos.com or post on the forums (with an informative subject line like "Factbook page for <subject> doesn't link to Anchor Bible Dictionary") so we can investigate.

    On 2): DICTBBLHASTINGS5 has greater coverage and is in a comparable number of base packages, and has LCV annotation. So to date the cost to also annotate DBHASTINGS hasn't been justified.
