I know that there is probably a simple explanation for this, but I cannot see any way of changing my search range in a Bible search.

There should be some drop-downs to select above the search text box, but they seem to be lost.

Help!

I couldn't recreate what you have here. Maybe try and restart your computer and Logos?

Thanks, Keith. I tried your suggestion but it didn't help.

Funny thing is that I get the dropdown for search ranges above the Search Box in the other kinds of searches.

strange! I tried everything I can think of to reproduce this error and I could not. Maybe some of the big dogs can.

Are you on Beta?

Did you click on the little arrow below the blue "all passages" or on the blue "all passages". in the bible search. That is how I change my verse ranges.

Try resizing your panel.

Thanks for your suggestion, but I can't do it!

If you look at my screenshots, you'll see that there are no blue dropdown in the Bible Search. I have many saved ranges, built up over years, but I cannot access them from the Bible Search

Beloved:

Try resizing your panel. 

Thanks, but I tried that to no effect. I've tried changing layouts, even searching from a blank layout. It makes no difference. I wonder if some setting has been tweaked "under the bonnet" during the last update?

Here are my Settings.

Any thoughts, anyone?

Dave, Thanks for the suggestion. After I posted the screen shot I noticed that my scaling was set at 120%, and tried reducing it to 100%. It made no difference. What I really can't figure out is why it is only the Bible Search that doesn't have the menu bar above the Search Text Box. It's available in the other types of search. Every blessing Alan

As Sgt. Schultz in Hogan's Heros used to say "Verrrry interestink."  Try running a search without any parameters then try it again.  Perhaps it will jar something loose.

Thanks for the suggestion, George. Unfortunately I can't do any Bible search and alter the range parameters. Bible search is locked into searching the Pauline epistles only! Because I cannot access the menu bar, I am unable to remove/alter those parameters.

BTW. I seem to remember "Verry interesting" from Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In in the 1960s. As I recall the little German soldier's face appeared from behind palm leaves and said, "Verry interesting … but stupid" as a critical commentary about the previous sketch/remark on the show.

You should contact Technical support. Unfortunately they don't take direct calls anymore. You must contact them by email tech@logos.com. In the mean time, one more idea. Close Search and open History; select another Bible Search from the list and open it. As George says, maybe it will jar something loose. Smile

Yes, you are correct.  The German soldier was Artie Johnson.  My mistake.  Sgt Schultz's remark was "I know nothink."

If it's locked into the Pauline epistles, you should be able to search the Pauline epistles without any change I would think.

Try a Bible Search from the Context Menu ("Search this resource") as that will alter parameters.

Thanks. Bible search within both Context Menu search and Inline search work fine.

See my screen shots:

Inline Search

Result:

Context Search

However, neither is as nimble and multifaceted as the Bible Search proper.

Furthermore, this is not just a problem on one Mac. Both my Ministry iMac (Retina, 5K, 27-inch) and my Academic iMac (Retina, 4K, 21.5-inch) as well as my MacBook Air behave in exactly the same way. None of them displays a Menu Bar for Bible Searches.

Hi Alan,

Both those searches look like they are inline to me. Searching just that resource (not inline) should display the other search types like Basic, Media, etc. A customer called with this behavior last year. I had them run a search just in that resource from the context menu and that fixed the behavior in that situation.
