Mitch Davis:

Go to the Help file in Logos and view (and then try) some of the examples. It just might turn out to be one of the best treasures when working with Logos on a daily basis.

The current contents of Help on this feature shows (and yes there are several changes from https://community.logos.com/forums/t/3227.aspx):

Command Box

The Command Box is for those who prefer to type quick commands to get results.

1. Click into the Command Box on the Toolbar at the top of the program window.

2. Type a command and press Enter, or first choose the exact command from the suggested matches displayed as you type. An example is create visual filter, which opens a new visual filter document.

3. You can also type just the name of a feature, such as ‘home’, ‘passage guide’, or ‘history’, and press Enter to open those features. This is equivalent to typing the command ‘show’ in front of the names. An example is library, which opens Library in a floating window.

  • search (basic), bible search, morph search, syntax search
