the screen shots are too small and blurred, but you lost me with your explanation.

But thank you.

You're right, but there's no way I would be able to duplicate this without some serious study, which I just don't have the time for.

But thank you.

Which was my earlier point. I hope the FL folks are paying attention. If they want to expand their market to more non-specialists, this needs a solution.

There's a line somewhere between the ability to do a task and having a usable interface to do the task. Ask Bill Gates how much the latter is worth. (I would have said 'Jobs' but he's not available to ask.)

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

By way of explanation, many articles can be found by searching Heading OR Large Text for a topical keyword: e.g. Old (for Old Testament). After finding Old in an article title, this search looks in the next 88 words for prayer OR petition in Heading, Large Text, OR Surface text (so prayer OR petition can be part of the article title OR appear in the article).

([field heading,largetext,surface] prayer,petition) AFTER 88 WORDS ([field heading,largetext] Old)

OR

([field heading,largetext] Old) BEFORE 88 WORDS ([field heading,largetext,surface] prayer,petition)

FYI: article titles can include Chapter heading OR sub-heading OR a Journal entry. Caveat: some resources do not return any results for Heading OR Large Text (as the same smallish font is consistently used without heading tagging).

Concur Logos and Verbum have tremendous search capabilities while user interface and automatic search execution make building a complex search challenging. Thankful can save Search in Favorites (for quicker reuse).

Dreaming of Right Click menu revamp for faster performance and easier use: e.g. customizing left hand side section order (currently alphabetical so more useful sections require scroll down for access).
