I watched the how-to video on creating a visual filter for figurative language and how to apply it to all the Bibles.  The question I have is what other visual filters available?

I am trying to create a visual filter so I can see all the OT quotes Paul uses in Romans.  Is there a command for that?

Many thanks!!!!

Hi jedi008 - and welcome to the forums

One way of doing this is to use the "intertext" label - see helpfile for a description

So you would do something like:

And create a Visual Filter from that search

Does that help?

Yes, thank you Graham.  That is exactly what I was trying to do!!!!  

Can you create a visual filter from a search?  I just created a new visual search from scratch.

Oh, and I figured out that the "L" in label has to be capital.  It does not work otherwise.

Thanks again!!!

Excellent

Yes - click on the icon at the top-left of the search panel and select "Save as Visual Filter"

That creates a new Visual Filter with the search string populated to which you can apply the highlighting of your choice

Awesome!!!!  Many, many thanks!

One last request: is there a list of labels or parameters?  There is no way I would have guessed that "intertext" was the right label!

Thank!

Pete
