Dave Hooton:

But you can do it in 4.0b with title:jesus in a collection of media files (type:media) and maps (type:map)

Dave: How do you create that collection that you just mentioned?

Thanks

Two ways of setting up the collection rule for that. Either of these will work (they are synonymous):

type:media OR type:map

type:(media, map)

Thanks Rosie. That worked. The syntax "#image@jesus" still gives too many false hits. I am seeing geographical maps when searching the entire library, and getting 90 hits. When I search the collection created using the "title" field I get 41 results along with several maps from the "Logos Deluxe Map Set". The description field seems to yield the best results. Still some false hits "Mount of the precipitation" from Images of the Holy Land , but the maps have pretty much disappeared.

The syntax "#image@jesus" performed on the entire library, misses many books, in particular "The Bible and its Story". Restrict it to the collections using the description field, and it picks them up. 

The first syntax will search dictionaries and find images, so you may need to use both.

I don't think Dave was suggesting you search for that "#image@jesus" syntax in a collection creating using the "title field. He was suggesting that you search in a collection of maps and media (the one I showed you how to create; well it sounds like you don't want to include maps in it, only media) for title:jesus

When I do that, the results include only maps and images and hymns that have Jesus in their title.

That was what I was suggesting. Just to add to the mystique of the #image 'operator'  I found that

description:jesus OR title:jesus

seems to provide the same images in that collection as

(#image ANDEQUALS jesus) OR title:jesus

even though the number of hits is different.
