I want to make sure I'm not missing anything here. Even though I can open the library filter faceted view, I still cannot get results by combining search parameters in the "Find" box, right?

For example, I can type

Type:Commentary Mark

and bring up all commentaries that have "Mark" somewhere in its description.

But I cannot get anything with the following "Find" text

Type:Commentary Title:Mark

This combination works well in the desktop application.

I don’t understand what you are asking, but I can search for what you provided

Thanks JT. What do you get if you type the following in the "Find" field.

title:mark type:commentary

In other words, my question is completely about the "Find" field.

Why are you trying to test that? The point of the new feature is so that you don't have to do so! In any case, the reason for the trouble with your filter is that the mobile app can't resolve the two word "Bible Commentary" for type. My results are identical across all devices when I use the following syntax: title:mark type:com (where "com" is an abbreviation of "Bible Commentary")

I get the same results when using the picker for "type" (Bible Commentary) and the syntax title:mark

My reasons for wanting to do this are not germane to why it isn't working as it should. It seems to be a bug.

Besides, I didn't try the two word "Bible Commentary" for type; that was not part of my original question. My point is that named parameters do not work in combination. It might be that I'm on Android, because the search you suggest does not yield any resources for me.

I'll report the bug.

See! that's told you 'bama!

JT (alabama24):
I use the following syntax: title:mark type:com (where "com" is an abbreviation of "Bible Commentary")

I get the same results as you right up until I type the final 'y' in 'commentary' then all the results disappear.

It happens even quicker if one reverses the order  :-(
