Is it possible to search my library by index type? I would like a quick way to show my books which have only a page number index or no index at all without having to check each book individually.

I don't think so, but out of curiosity, why are you interested in doing so?

Hey AlabamaBig Smile

I'm just working on doing some further refining in my prioritizing, parallel resources, and collections.. I  wanted to see which books need to be in collections for searching- page only indexes and no indexes- and which books could be made into parallel resource sets- versified and topical indexes. I didn't think there was a way, but around here it never hurts to ask. I have been pleasantly surprised some times by what I thought couldn't be done. I ran a library search on "vyrso" and it yielded 91 books that had no index. I think I will make a "vyrso collection" so I will be able to search those books as well.   Thanks for your help

There is a much better way to build a collection or filter your library for Vyrso books. Use the syntax edition:e. I believe that there may be a very few Vyrso resources with page numbers, but not many. You can consider that gospel.

Lonnie Spencer:

"topical indexes" could be filtered by title:topical

"Topics" are usually filtered by type:(encyclopedia, concordance) but some type:monograph also have headword indexes - I tag those and have a collection filtered by:-

(type:(encyclopedia, concordancede) AND myrating:>2)  OR  mytag:topical

"versified" is usually type:(commentary, bible) but then you have English, greek and hebrew bibles. To what extent do you want to filter?

As far as bibles go, I am just concerned with a PRS for my English bibles. I only use the NA 27 for Greek and I can't read a lick of Hebrew. I like your suggestions. Thanks for your help Dave.Big Smile
