Bug: documentation provides argument values that don't work:

• Structure ~ "..." — the poetic organization of the Psalm, one of:


• Acrostic — the first words of lines (or groups of lines) start with each letter of the alphabet in succession
• Chiastic — also called "onion" or "concentric" structure, where earlier sections are rhymed thematically by later ones
• Strophic — the Psalm is divided into strophes


Verbum Help (Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2016).

Neither "chiastic" not "stophic" returned results - chiasm and stroph did. No only is the documentation on these search spread across Help and Manuals; the documentation may be wrong. I am not happy.

Help needed: Can I simplify this search? {Label Psalm WHERE Structure ~ "stroph"} OR {Label Psalm WHERE Structure ~ "chiasm"} OR {Label Psalm WHERE Structure ~ "acrostic"}

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

You can use {Label Psalm WHERE Structure ~ "Chiasm" AND Structure ~ "Acrostic"}, but OR is not allowed. So, the only simplification is to use comma for OR, but you lose the colours in the results.
