Is there any way to view multiple Basic search hits on the same note file using the "Grid" or "Aligned" views available in the Bible search feature? It is difficult to find specific strings when I have to search for something, make a list of the notes that returned a hit, and then search again within each individual note. I'm guessing it's not available so this is worded somewhat as a suggestion, but I would be very happy to find out I was overlooking something! Any help gladly appreciated.

What I see in the Basic search:

The format I want to see in Basic for hits in my notes, but currently only showing up in Bible search:

I recognize that there are no tags in the notes file (e.g. headings) for separate results in search like there are in the Bible (references), but even if it could just display nearby text for a brief check before the user decides to open the notes file, that would be a huge help!

Best case would perhaps be that Grid view begins with the sentence where the hit occurs, and Aligned could just work as-is. Then a click on a search result would navigate to the nearest preceding paragraph break in the notes file and highlight the searched string.

Hi Josiah,

No, this isn't possible. But you might try this as a workaround. You can open and search within the Notes Tool. That filter can be saved as a shortcut or in your Favorites Tool. So you could in a sense use that to save a list. You can then clear the search and search again. This screen recording illustrates what I am talking about.

Let me know if this is helpful.

In Christ,
