My Logos 4 searching ability has stopped working on my laptop and desktop.  Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

Steve

what do you mean by "stopped working"? Does it just not show any results? My guess is that you need to do a full re-index. Not sure why this would be the case for both computers, though. How long ago did searching work?

Philip,

I noticed that it stopped this week.  When I type in a word to search I get nothing, no results.

When search doesn't work, or returns no results, this is almost always an indexing issue. If you're indexing is still running, that's why.

If it's done running, or not running then you'll need to rebuild the index. Here's how: when you have the time (a few hours away from the computer - overnight?), make sure that you're computer won't go to sleep, or hibernate and then type rebuild index in the command bar and let it complete.

Thanks Phillip and Richard.

I am rebuilding my index now and hopefully that will take care of the problem.
