I'm a new Verbum Master owner and have downloaded some of my library to my Android device. I cannot seem to perform a search of only my downloaded resources. I can not locate a training video for this and checked some threads here to see if they answer my issue, without luck. Can I get some direction on performing a search only on downloaded books? Thanks.

Hi David,

Currently, the only way to perform a search on downloaded resources is putting your device in airplane mode or otherwise disconnect it from the internet.

If I do a basic search for a word such as "peace" with the internet on I get some relavent results although these results include all my books and not just the downloaded ones.  With the internet off the search gives me only the downloaded books but the results are no longer sorted by relevance and the results are useless to me.  For instance, I have the Amplified Bible downloaded and the results I get for several pages are all from the Amplifed BIble and I am looking for results form more topically based works.

I would like to be able to search by collection and have the option to just search my downloaded resources so that I can get much more relavent results on just my local library.  It would be nice to search my local books for the word "peace" in just my topical books so that I don't see hundreds of references from my bibles throughout.

Agreed! Yes This would make searches more meaningful and save time. It is tedious on a mobile device to scroll through all the Bibles, if you want to find something in a reference book.
