This was first report in 2010, but it's still a really frustrating problem. It doesn't seem like it would be difficult to fix, but it would make a big difference to the usefulness of morph searches, particularly those initiated from the Bible Word Study.

Put simply, the bug is this: it's not possible to choose non-Bibles from the "Add Versions" dropdown, even though there are many, many morphologically tagged resources that are not Bibles.

In an ideal world, it would obviously be great if the Add Versions button only gave resources that could be used as parallel resources to the references found in the search results, but I appreciate that might be technically difficult to implement without dragging the performance down.

But surely it's possible just to allow any resource to be added?

(I know there's an issue here in that this picker - which is borrowed from Bible Search and Text Comparison - allows you to choose multiple versions, whereas the normal picker only allows you to choose one version. But personally, if there was to be a restriction on morph searches, I would rather the restriction be that we're limited to one version. Those who wanted multiple Bible versions could always flick to the Bible search.)

For Morph search use the same picker as for the main resource as this lists collections of, and open resources that are, non-bibles and has  "All Morph Resources" in place of "All Bibles"

To clarify. My response was a suggestion/fix for Logos to implement.

This will be fixed in 5.1b Beta 1.

Although you can now add non-Bibles, they're not displaying results properly, as the screenshots below suggest:

This resource doesn't show up at all:

And this one uses a different datatype in the first and second columns:

I have created a new case for this issue.

It's slated for an upcoming release, but I don't have an estimate on when that will ship. We haven't lost track of it, don't worry. Smile

The menu hasn't been fixed, so you still have to type the title. There is no improvement AFAIK! (I can't test the Works of Josephus or Philo as I don't have the Greek versions).

I don't understand what this means; can you elaborate? (The word "menu" doesn't occur previously in this thread, so I couldn't tell if you were referring to a previously-discussed issue.)

The resource "picker" still doesn't show "All Morph Resources"

I understand now; I'll submit the suggestion.

Thanks for doing this. I can confirm that the first book is indeed fixed. However the second bug remains. Please don't forget about that.

I said earlier that the second bug is that the two columns often use different datatypes. Actually that's not quite right. The bug instead is that the first resource is displaying the wrong information, regardless of whether the second resource is shown, or not.

In that screenshot, the left hand column finds a result in Antiquities 1.2. But it's actually displaying the results only from line seven, not from the whole section. Worse, in an AND search, it will only find results where the two words appear in the same line, not when they appear in the same 'verse'.

Correct: the indexer is incorrectly dividing the resources into "verses" whenever it reaches a new Volume/Page/Line milestone.

This will be fixed in the next beta (not Beta 5). Unfortunately, because it's an indexer issue, not a resource issue, you will have to "rebuild indexes" to get the fix.
