I must be missing something. I was curious about how often the words 'house' or 'temple' are used in the NT. So I did a search and got answer. Out of curiosity I used the 'Graph Results' button ... 

The number of hits seemed OK in the bar chart but I wondered how this is affected by the size of the book so I tried the 'verses with hits / verses in books' option.

The search suggests 2 John as one hit, the hits bar confirmed this, but the 'verses/verses' bar is huge ! What am I not understanding? One hit should be one verse which divided by almost anything must be a number less than 1?

As I started to write this post, I re-sized Logos so that it filled half the screen so as to make a smaller screen shot ... and as I was resizing the scale and bars changed so that they are now giving completely different results than they did when they filled my entire screen.

When I hover over the Revelation bar it suggests 12 hits (lower chart) but the scale suggests 7.5 hits (!) ... why?

When I hover over the 2 John result, it gives an answer of 7.692 (upper chart) ... why?

 

Thanks.

On my PC this bar, when hovered over says "7.69%" it is a density rating that, in the smaller books isn't probably all that helpful. It's like saying 7.69% of verses in the book contain this word. If a verse contains the word multiple times you couldn't run the math just off the raw hit count.

I suspect there's a bug here in how the Mac version resized that needs to be addressed. I was not able to reduplicate on Windows.

Let me know if I missed something:

Using Logos 4.5c Beta 1 on OS X 10.6.8 am unable to replicate Bar Chart issue:

Observation: Hebrews and Revelation have some verses with two search words found.  The Bar Chart graph for number of hits in a book appears correct.
