I purchased the Works of Edwards but am unable to do any searches in this collection. Search results continue to come up with no hits. All of the books are accessible and have downloaded. Any suggestions?

Additionally, when I search everything for {Label Sermon}, only one collection produces hits despite my knowing I have tons of Edwards, Calvin and Owen sermons that should be surfacing. 

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Hi Blake - and welcome to the forums

Have you allowed indexing to complete? If not you should see a message in the Search pane indicating this

Can you post a screenshot showing this? Please use the paperclip icon in a reply to this thread

PS: This is probably best in the Logos 7 forum and it may be moved there

Welcome Big Smile

Please elaborate on search terms (allow others opportunity to replicate). Thankful can use paper clip to attach screen shot.

For Edwards, know of 13 resources that have Sermon labels while did not find any for Owen:

Likewise know of two Calvin resources that have sermon labels:

Screen shot shows my Library has some Owen resources with sermons, which currently are not labeled, but could be searched.

Hi Graham!

Just as you suspected- it must have been indexing. I didn't see anything showing that it was not done- but once I restarted my MacBook and searched again, like magic, they appeared:)

Thanks so much for getting back to me! 

God Bless, Blake

Hello Keep Smiling!

Thanks for the screen shots. I copied your searches and got the same results. Apparently it was not indexed yet. Good tip on Owen and Calvin Sermons. Yes, Owen must not be labeled despite there being sermons in there.

I need to do some boot camp for Logos. I'm pathetic and need to learn to use the operators. It's like flying the Starship Enterprise but not knowing how to go to warp! 

And thanks for the reply- even the forums can look intimidating- all these super advanced questions and I'm embarrassed I can't even execute a search:) I'll keep smiling though! 

Thanks so much!  God Bless, Blake

Hi Blake

Glad you have it working - and please don’t be embarrassed about asking questions. That’s what the forums are for, Graham

Concur. Thankful can search for Bible references in Owen sermons:

(<Ps10> OR <Ro4>) AFTER 222 WORDS ([field heading,largetext] Sermon)

Thankful for many friendly forum discussions: have learned a lot plus have a lot to learn. Search discussions help many.
