Using Luis González, Justo. “Justin (ca. 100–ca. 165).” Edited by Justo L. González. Translated by Suzanne E. Hoeferkamp Segovia. The Westminster Dictionary of Theologians. Louisville, KY; London: Westminster John Knox Press, 2006. as an example

The Headwords are not coded with LCV entries pointing to Factbook: Yes, I know the picture is selection rather than headword but the behavior is the same in this case.

This means that I get a search argument of "Justin" rather than "<Biography = Justin Martyr>". I would much prefer the latter to the former.

Is this the only resource this is true for and if not how would you go about finding the others? What would be required to remedy this issue?

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

I would expect it to be generally true of headword resources.

I don't know the internals of the source code. I suspect that a change to the tagging process would be required but it would require more human intervention to determine the correct value where there are ambiguities.

I found this to be true for the AYBD for the same Headword. Moreover as a side issue when I attempted the search <Biography JUSTIN Martyr> All Resources it crashes consistently. I too believe an option should exist where you can quickly search for the alternative from the right click menu. FL would you like to comment?

Have you tried making the operator explicit <Biography ~ JUSTIN Martyr>?

No. But <Biography Justin Martyr> performs as expected. I'll try your suggestion as well.

That results in a crash as well.
