Hi, I'm trying to use the webapp from time to time and I appreciate the massive steps forward that it has taken. I'm having issues with search though. I'm not sure if it's a bug or just a 'coming soon' feature but I can't seem to search except for entire library. If I try to select all bibles I can't select it. I can search for particular books and if I click them I get a popup with their cover but they are not selected for the purpose of the search.

I would find it extremely useful to be able to search by collection for example? It it were even possible to put 'type:grammar' or 'type:monograph' etc into the library panel that would be a giant leap forward for accessing content. I'm currently finding this only possible on biblia.com.

As a work around I can open a particular book and search that way but unless you have an small starter library, searching the entire library yields a proverbial haystack of results.

Thanks so much,

John

Search is definitely an area of the web app that has not yet received a large investment; support for collections and filtering will be coming in a future update to the system.

However, searching Bibles and individual resources in the search panel are currently supported, and I've confirmed that they're working on my system. Could you provide more detail about what exactly happens as you attempt these operations. Screenshots, in particular, would be most helpful. (if you press Command-Shift-4 on a Mac, you can select a region of your screen, and the screenshot will be saved to your desktop)

Thanks for getting back to me. You can see from the image that CD V is highlighted but no amount of clicking or anything else moves me on from here. I click the book and just get this extra popup. If I click off to the side to make the menu disappear then I'm back to searching entire library. The same happens if I try to select 'all bibles' for a bible search. I can only search within a particular bible by first opening it from the library.

I'm using Firefox 49.0.2 on a mac with sierra. I've just tried Safari and Chrome and search works perfectly on those - which confirms it isn't user error.

Thanks, John

I can reproduce this issue on Firefox. We'll get it fixed soon.
