Is there a way to search for words based on number of occurrences within a passage/book? I'm beginning a new whole book series (1 & 2 Samuel if it matters) and would like to have key words highlighted on my first read through. Any suggestions?

You know about the "Interesting Words" in the Passage Guide, right?  You can see them in English or Hebrew as you wish and according to the passages you want to include regarding "key" words.

If you are subscribed to Logos Now, you could use the Concordance Tool:

In the case of both suggestions mentioned above, you still need to make a visual filter of the words to get them highlighted in the text.

Wow, thanks. That's exactly what I wanted, now to decide if I want it bad enough to pay for a subscription...

How would you suggest making a visual filter from the "Interesting Words" feature?  Thanks!

On a similar vein, is there a way to use the highlighting tool to highlight a specific word at every occurrence, say for example, the word "therefore"?

David & Taxee -

1. Documents ==> Visual Filter

2. Edit name

3. Add words and highlight (note it follows the Search's Match case, Match all forms ...)

4. close

5. Make sure it is turned on in the Bible of your choice (3 balls symbol)

MJ. Smith:
1. Documents ==> Visual Filter

This highlights the text on a temporary basis but does not have the same effect as highlighting the text with the highlighting tool.  Correct?

It isn't the same as using the highlighting tool - in that highlights are not stored in a notes document - but it is "permanent" in that the results of the visual filter will allows show in the resource unless you disable the visual filter.

One other difference is that visual filters can't currently be used in the mobile apps

Thanks for discussing the concordance tool in this thread.   I was wishing that I had something like that.... and then read this thread and bingo! I had it all along and thanks to this discussion...  I can now use it!

Thanks again!
