Steve Mehaffey:
But it looks especially funny if the two words are together (like "the" and "LORD") and the extra element shows up twice in a row..  Would you want it to be coded so that highlighting that changes text font/color/etc. is applied to both words but extra elements like Label Text are only applied to one word?  For example both "the" and "LORD" could be highlighted in red but only "LORD" would get the superscript label.  That would require some extra level of distinction to tell which work gets which parts of the highlighting.

Yes, that's exactly what I was suggesting. But I'm sure some people prefer the existing method for other searches.

Pretty cool.

However, I find that it does mess up the LHI. So in the LHI I unselected the visual filter that included that entry and all returned to normal. The AFAT (Andersen-Forbes) does this too.  My version of the BHS doesn't have an issue. I don't know if any other Hebrew texts would be affected.

It would probably be more efficient to apply the visual filter search just to a collection of English Bibles.

Or at least non-original language Bibles. The filter also works in the one Spanish reverse interlinear (RVR60) as well (though it uses Jehová - reducing the need for the identifier). As far as I know, the RVR60 is the only reverse interlinear in a language other than English.

Mark Barnes:

Here's a string, which ought to work, but doesn't

(<Lemma = af/he/יהוה> ANDEQUALS Lord) AFTER 1 WORD the

It adds the "Yahweh" in twice - once for each word. Is that a bug?

The search works but double-counts the results from the ANDEQUALS expression. I don't like it but Logos wants to count each word ie. by design.

EDIT: sorry, wrong context!

It would be very cool if search could be given the ability to search all highlighting fields, including custom ones now.

The only other problem I see here is that you probably will want to limit this to only English Bibles. When I applied it to all Bibles it changes my Hebrew texts.

As discussed above, visual filters can be restricted to particular collections to achieve exactly this.

Hmmm... For some reason I did not read/see that there was already a post about this above. Weird, I must have been sleeping.

Tom Geswein:

I tried tying the filter to "the LORD" and it seems to be working and replacing "the" as well.   Please correct me if I'm wrong:

This also seems to work for bibles that do not have a reverse interlinear.

Tom this would work if Yahweh was the underlying word behind every instance of "The Lord" in the OT. But it isn't. There are times when Yahweh is not translated: "The Lord". And there are times when "The Lord" didn't come from Yahweh (See my example from Is 6).

Joe Miller:
One filter finds all OT occurrences of "the Lord" in English and the second creates the insert for YHWH.

Except they don't always match, do they?

If you do it this way, they match:

That gives me:

And if I set the color to white and the size to 20% (in addition to the superscript) in the first style, I can make the original text practically disappear:

 

(Although having a white style in the styles list also makes the style entry seem to disappear Huh? )

Yes, good solutions.  I started working on this a few weeks ago and was doing a strikethrough of the old text, but I also like the superscript solution you have used better. :-)

Todd, can you do a screen shot of your settings for the custom Highlights?

The solution is particularly helpful (time saving) for English Bibles that do not distinguish between the translations of YHWH and adonai (such as, inexplicably in my books, the NKJV).

Jacob, I love the filder for doulos (= slave instead of servant). Wished I could do this in my print Bible!

The other one I have often wished for but might be trickier to implement even in Logos 4 is to signal which second person pronouns (you) are singular and which are plural and to do so in a way that is not visually excessive (or perhaps the focus should be on verbs, not pronouns). Considering how the initial idea was even improved in this thread, perhaps the collective wisdom can come up with a wonderful idea for this too?

Thanks again, Jacob, Todd and others for sharing.

Blessings,

Francis
