Hello,

I'm new here, I was wondering: when I search a word (e.g. "apostle") if there was an easier way to see how many exact results are in a book than going through the "graph results" and scrolling over the pie-chart (e.g. 1x in Mt, 2x in Mk, 6x in Lk, 28x in Acts, etc.) ? Biblegateway.com shows this easily, as does E-Sword, can someone show me how it's done in Logos? Thank you!

in Him,

tim young

Hi Tim - and welcome to the forums

I'm not sure which type of search you are running - sounds like it could be a Basic Search - but try running a "Bible" search (outlined in red below)

Does this help?

Welcome.

To follow Graham's answer ...

Note the 4 options Grid Verses Aligned Analysis.

Try them all. You might prefer one over the others.

Don't forget f11 brings up the reading screen, and CTRL + P allows you to print the list.

Hello Graham and Stephen,

Thanks for your suggestions, I think what I'm looking for is something more like this:

https://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=apostle&qs_version=ESV

...where on the right side there's an easy-to-read list of books they're found in, and how many results are found in each book.

Hope that makes sense? Is there anything like this where I can see numbers instead of going through the graph-view where I need to scroll over the visuals?

in Him,

tim young

Hi Tim

I'm not sure there is anything exactly like what you are looking for.

Some options (although I note the information on the left is incorrect which I'll follow up separately)

Edit: The information on the left is actually correct. It is explicitly matching "apostle" whereas the search on the right is matching "apostle", "apostles", etc. You can change this in the search on the right but not - as far as I can see - on the left.

If either of those look helpful we can talk you through how to generate them

Hi Graham,

The view on the right looks like what I mean! When I do the search on my Logos though, I do not find a "book" column; 

Any suggestions of how I can get there?

Thanks!

Try right-clicking on a column heading and choose the fields you want
