Is there a way to search for ALL the places in the Bible? I know there is a biblical places tool (or similar) in Logos, but I want to study all the Scriptures that indicates a place. Please let me know!

Did you try <Place Jerusalem>? {Substitute the place you are seeking for Jerusalem} This command even finds places that are referenced but not specifically named—Accuracy of results does depend upon FL's tagging.

Tools => Factbook can be useful to show Place information, which has option to save "tagged" references as a passage list,

Includes other reference names for place.

Thank you for the help!

I tried finding some places using Factbook. But for this, I have to know all the places in order to find all places. Right? (I might be wrong).

But, I found this website today which is very helpful - http://www.openbible.info/geo/

Until someone smarter comes along with a better answer, these two might hold you over. 

Using Louw Nida, you can very easily find all the NT places using the semantic domain range for places (see LEFT)

Using Factbook, you can search for the generic datatype <Place>. (You'll have to filter out the ones that are not places)

Hope this helps a little.

This does not do what you think it does. It actually is the same as typing "Place". It looks for any Factbook entry with the word "place" in the title, which certainly does not include all places.

+1 

Concordance Tool would be my recommendation for this, though Clause Search for place:ANY would also work.
