Dear Sir/Ma'am

I tried to search Galatians 5:22-23 using my "Galatian Collection" yields NO results. The entire Library option is also missing. See print screen below.

Please advise!

Thank you  and God bless!

Dear Pastor Dong,

Try putting angle brackets around the reference. What you're doing there is a textual search for the word "Galatians" and the string "5:22-23". It is quite possible that those two search terms do not appear exactly like that in any of the resources in your Galatian Collection.

But if instead you search for <galatians 5:22-23>, that will do a reference search, so it will search for all places in that collection that refer to the passage in question, whether they refer to it as Gal 5:22-23 or in a passage that overlaps those verses, e.g. Gal 5, or Gal 5:22-26. If you really only want places that refer to the exact passage Gal 5:22-23, not larger passages that happen to contain those two verses, then use <=galatians 5:22-23> as your search term.

Thanks, Rosie.  I knew something had changed - I remember having to use the word Bible inside the brackets and having to use either an equal sign or tilde to specify the type of search wanted.  Thanks again.

Blessings,
Floyd

Nothing has changed in this regard

These options are defined at https://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help#Searching_for_Bible_Verses_and_other_References (scroll down about a page).

The syntax Rosie gave is shorthand for   <bible ~ reference>
