The following new NOT operators were added to 7.10 Beta 1: NOT INTERSECTS, NOT BEFORE, NOT AFTER, NOT WITHIN, NOT NEAR

  • Also added aliases for some existing operators:
    • NOT AND is the same as ANDNOT
    • AND NOT is the same as ANDNOT
    • NOT ANDEQUALS is the same as NOTEQUALS
    • NOT EQUALS is the same as NOTEQUALS
    • EQUALS is the same as ANDEQUALS

Good.

Now what we need is ALL/ANY for tagged entities (e.g., <Person ALL>) and searches can be fully functional.

Excellent news.

Bonus points to the first person to create and post an authentically useful search string that employs all five of the new operators.

Sweet! I am so happy to see this.

A rough and ready Visual Filter for anarthrous Greek nouns is now possible:

   @N NOT AFTER 1 WORD @D

It is not perfect, since it does not take into consideration that the article may be separated from the noun by more than one word. But as a visual filter it saves a lot of time.

Now, if we just had command line morphological agreement....

Command line disagreement is doable for anarthrous Greek nouns => Anarthrous Greek nouns Visual Filter

Faithlife Group Logos Visual Filters has "Logos Greek Morphology - Noun: Anarthrous (English)" and "Logos Greek Morphology - Noun: Anarthrous (Greek)" shared documents.

True. But it is time consuming and error-prone to have to enter every permutation of word combinations.

For what its worth, Bible Works has a concise method of specifying morphological agreement/disagreement of desired morphological features in command line searches. The Graphical Search Engine (which is similar to what was in Logos Libronix 3.0) is more powerful, but at least the possibility is there in command line searches.

Concur creating visual filter searches was time consuming plus checked/verified article/noun combinations several times for agreement correctness. Thankful anarthrous visual filters can be freely copied (and modified as desired: e.g. highlighting). Due to word order differences in English and Greek, created different visual filters.
