I have basic search function that can easily be done in Bible Works but I’m struggling to figure it out in Logos and would love some help. 

I regularly need to identify all words in a specific passage which appear 10 times or more in the GNT. For example, I need to identify all the words in 1 Cor 1-3 who’s lamma appears in the entire GNT 10 times or more.

Further, how do I create a visual filter that will work with my NA27 (or 28 when its ready) to show me what words appear 10x or more?

You may already have this work in your library.  It is helpful if you wish to work on increasing your vocabulary so that you know what is more needful to learn.

If not, it's cheap enough

Yes, I have this resource.  Is there a way that this resource can be linked to a specific passage to tell me what words in my passage appear 10 times or more in the GNT or do I have to look up every word in the passage individually?

If you prioritize it high enough you can right-click on a word and select the resource.  I tested this by prioritizing it to the highest level so it works.  Now I'll de-prioritize it.

This thread (http://community.logos.com/forums/t/75791.aspx) discusses and links to an instructional video in Hebrew. The Greek process is the same.

The Word by Word feature of Exegetical Guide is helpful but you have to set it to show words that occur 9 times or fewer because the words that occur 10 times or more will be greyed out in the passage summary, but It is restricted to the amount of information it can show in 100 verses I think. Still it is the best option as you have to create two Word Lists each time, merge them and sort the resulting list e.g create a Word List for 1 Cor 1-3, then another for Matt - Rom, 1 Cor 4 - Rev 22 -> except I couldn't create one for such big ranges!

Several things here have been helpful. 

My project was somewhat more complicated then typical so I'm going to describe how I did it and see if anyone has a better suggestion.

Task: Create a word list of all Greek words that appear in 1 Corinthians which also appear 10 or more times in the GNT.

Here is how I've done this:

I've used the "Word List" function under 'documents.'
See here for discussion and videos on how to do this: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/75791.aspx

First I made a word list of all words in Matt-Rev 

Then I made a word list of all words in 1 Cor

I then deleted all words from the Matt-Rev list that appear 9 times or less (this caused great problems in that logos crashes nearly every time I tried this).

I think used the merge function and choose "intersection."  This produced a list of all words in 1 Cor that appear 10 or more in the GNT.
