In doing a Morph search, you can ask for other resources to be listed in addition to the one being searched. I have been able (occasionally) to get just the ESV bible to be listed, but if I save the workspace and relaunch it, ESV is interpreted as all the resources containing ESV in their short title, making two extra columns. I've tried creating a collection with just the ESV bible, but that didn't work. I don't mind hiding the audio resource, but I would like to be able to access the ESVSB.

Thanks,

Skip

Have you tried creating a Collection with just the ESV Bible, and then picking that Collection in the Morph search?

I have, and it failed. I tried indicating that in the initial post. Smile

Hi Skip - and welcome to the forums

I've tried to replicate what you describe but I don't see where you get the additional options.

Are you able to post some screenshots (use the paperclip icon in the forum editor) to illustrate what you mean?

Hi Greg,

Does this help?

Hi Graham,

I probably showed you the parts you knew about. In the picture, you can select one of three options for the results of the search: verses, aligned, and analysis. That needs to be set to verses. When you do that, you will get a link that says Add versions. That's where adding ESV causes me pain. In the actual search, specifying the whole bible adds hits in the Apochrypha, which I didn't care about. My Greek Bible is a Collection of NA28 and Lexham LXX.

Hi Skip

When you add ESV in the "Add Versions" what options do you get in the dropdown?

I get the options shown below - which don't give me the ability to include the ESV Audio or Study Bible resources

The "BHS, LXX, ESV" option is the name of a collection I have created and if I choose that I get all the resources contained within it.

I'm wondering if you are seeing something similar - though note you tried it with a collection just containing the ESV

Adding ESV in the "Add Versions" area won't change the scope of the search.

The search is conducted against the resource(s) in the search box - in your case NA28 and Lexham LXX (and it is the latter of those which will give you hits from the Apocrypha) - while adding in extra versions simply shows the results of the searches in those versions.

Graham,

I think I found the problem. My dropdown includes an entry for ESV Bible and a Collection  named ESV, which is where I think the difficulty lies. (I don't remember creating the collection, perhaps Logos did.) Here's what it looked like before,

After changing the collection named ESV to MyESV I think the problem is fixed. Thank you very much!

That had the potential of causing confusion!

Excellent.
