Peace, brethren,

We have this wonderful list of datatypes of the Church Fathers here:

https://wiki.logos.com/Author_Datatypes

...but, unfortunately, have to specify author AND individual work in a milestone search. In other words, this search for "Christ" in the Orations of St. Gregory works:

(Christ WITHIN {Milestone <GregoryNazianzen Gregory Nazianzen, Oration 1-45>})

but this search for Christ in ALL of the works of St. Gregory does not:

(Christ WITHIN {Milestone <GregoryNazianzen>})

If the wonderful Logos engineers can enable wildcard searching so we can search through ALL works of an author datatype, it would be absolutely perfect.

Thank you kindly

I use Verbum with an 8-Core Mac Pro (2013) and a MacBook Pro (2017)

"Data type wildcard" searches have been requested before, e.g., https://community.logos.com/forums/p/148253/921339.aspx#921339

Your suggested use case is a good one, so I've added a link to this thread to our internal feature suggestion discussion.
