I'm used to doing search like <bible in "genesis 2:3"> , but neither the "in" nor the "near" search terms work in L4.

Do they work if they are upper case?

NEAR works. IN doesn't.

I would suggest something like pressing ALT + Down arrow brings up something like the Morph assistance box that has the various options in it.

Bradley Grainger of Logos has told us that search syntax is not yet documented for Logos 4. So trying is the best we can do. Some search syntax is exactly as in 3.0 but the <> brackets are not used. Holy WITHIN 5 WORDS Spirit is one that works.

Specifying the data type is often unnecessary, because Logos 4 can usually figure it out: there's really only one thing (ignoring versification differences, which are handled automatically, anyway) that you can mean by "Genesis 2:3". For a data type reference search, enclose the reference in angle brackets:

<gen 2:3>    <G3056>

etc. To force an exact (not an intersecting) match, use an equals sign:

<= Jn 3:16>

If you need to distinguish ambiguous references, you can still specify the data type name/alias, optionally followed by an operator, then the data:

<LN = 1.10>   <tdnt = 1.10>    <LN ~ 33.98>   <LN 33.98>

Wow--thanks, Bradley! Where would I find tips like this--help? help videos?

Blessings, & THANKS for all you do for us!

It will be in the help... eventually. (I think one of the items on my tasklist is to review and flesh out the existing help on searching but I haven't gotten to it yet...)

It seems that <luke 13:1-9> gives the same results as <bible in "luke 13:1-9"> used to in L3

Yes, both are an "intersection" search.

<luke 13:1-9> is the "friendly" syntax for <bible ~luke 13:1-9>    -  see http://wiki.logos.com/Search_HELP
