I would just like to do an inline search in this commentary, but the search options seem to be for a Bible search ("All Passages"). I'm sure I just don't know what I'm doing. Win 10, 8.9.0.0030.

I think this actually indicates a Basic Search

If you compare different types of inline searches in a Bible you see that a Bible search refers to "All Bible Text":

and in Basic mode it refers to "All Text"

So I'd just go ahead and run the search and you should be fine.

Thanks, Graham, but I'm still stuck. I think you meant to show something different in your second screen shot. At any rate, this is what I'm seeing as the search parameter options, and the results which look like bare verses. Again, this is a commentary and I want to search all the text. Is there some way the type of search can be set for inline?

I believe it is correctly operating as an inline searchSmile

In your first screenshot I believe you have clicked on the "All Passages" dropdown. You get this because the commentary (like all Logos-edition commentaries) are indexed by Bible verse and this allows you to restrict the range of the search. So if, for example, you entered "Judges 10-12" at that point you would only get results from the sections in that commentary commenting on that passage range.

Your second screenshot is correctly showing the results of your search. The results are displayed on separate lines as you have "Sentence" selected in the Inline Search line. If you change that to "Paragraph" for example you will see more easily-readable results.

The verse references shown simply relate to the sections in the commentary 

Does this help or am I missing your point?

Yes, you are totally correct, it is searching the entire book. I chose a phrase from the preface, and it was found when I searched. So it's a little confusing that it appears to only be searching a Bible verse range, but really is searching the whole commentary. Hope someone else finds this explanation later. Thanks you, Graham!
