I'm using Logos 4 and have little understanding of word searching beyond right-click -> "search this resource". In Judges 4:6, I wanted to search the collocation       וַתִּשְׁלַ֗ח וַתִּקְרָא֙, but I didn't want my search to be limited to the feminine singular. Is there a way to do that?

Hi Joshua - and welcome to the forums

Joshua Clarke Cushing:
I'm using Logos 4

My first recommendation would be to upgrade to Logos 6 (assuming your system meets the requirements) as Logos 4 is no longer supported. The free engine is available from https://www.logos.com/install 

The particular reason why this would be useful is that "phrase searching" was introduced in Logos 6.7 which gives you what you are looking for.

In the right-click menu below you will see options to search for the phrase with or without specifying morphology

The resultant search - without specifying morphology - is shown below (with the search string being "lemma:וְ BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:שׁלח BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:וְ BEFORE 4 CHARS lemma:קרא:1")

and - for completeness - with matching morphology you get

If, for some reason, you can't upgrade to Logos 6 you should be able to paste the search string into a search window in Logos 4 and get the same results

Hope this helps, Graham
