I could not recall what chapter of Mark "He hath done all things well." So I went to my bible search. When I search KJV it will not find any NT verses. The search criteria is "Search All Bible Text in Entire Bible in KJV for"

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Robert - and welcome to the forums.

It does work here - see shot below:

it could be a case-sensitive setting if you are starting your search string with "he" instead of "He" and if you have the search characteristics set to match case, selected in the drop-down menu at the top left of the search window

Alternatively if your system is still indexing (possibly after a recent download) some searches won't work.

Does any of this help?

Thanks Graham, however, I could not get it to work. I even tried searching for "Jesus" and could not get any results.  Logos has only completed 4% of indexing, so maybe that is the problem.

When I change the bible version to Authorized Version, it locates the NT verses with no problem.

Hi Robert

Indexing is most likely the issue here - searches are not reliable while indexing is going on. It sounds like it has been going on for a long time for you!

You see, Logos knows when you call it by its proper name and when you're being ... common.  Big Smile
