This was first discussed in https://community.logos.com/forums/p/98025/675937.aspx#675937 looking at ways of searching for occasions when Jesus refers to the poor.

It appears that when searching on "senses" within Words of Christ some false hits are returned. The other thread summarises some of these.

When just doing a straight text search the "Words of Christ" seems to work correctly as shown below

Examples shown are from the NIV but the same happens with NRSV

This is using 6.0b beta 3 on Windows 8.1

EDIT: This is not just a beta issue, I can reproduce the behavior described in the original post in 6.0a SR3

Looks like when a <Sense> search is run, Logos is ignoring the designation to limit your search to the "Search Field" of "Words of Christ". The results are the same when the Search Field "Words of Christ" is selected as when "All Bible Text" is selected (to easily confirm this, just run the search on the entire Bible, instead of just the NT).

In the meantime, the new L6 version of this search is still working correctly: <Sense poor (generic)> WITHIN {Speaker <Person Jesus>}

That looks to be what is happening - nice diagnosisSmile

WOC is ignored for  <Person>, <Place>, <Thing> and {Extension} searches.

But <xxxStrongs> datatype searches and <LouwNida> return zero results in WOC
