Can anyone help please.

I am wanting to do a 'milestone' search within my lexicons using the lemma headword. Have tried it out a number of ways but just can't seem to get it to work.

If you go into any of the lexicons and right click on the lemma, the third choice on the right hand side of the contextual menu identifies that the lemma and the info associated with it has been tagged as 'Headword'.

I am wanting a quick way of finding a passage under the relevant lemma entry.

All help appreciated.

This isn't a search, but if you enable the "Emphasize active references" visual filter in your lexicons, then the Bible reference(s) in your open Bible(s) will be highlighted automatically as you scroll through the lexicon entry. This can help you quickly identify if the lexicon comments on your current passage.

Hey Bradley

Thanks for the response :) that’s my current modus operandi. Just looking to save some time by getting to the relevent reference under the Lemma via a quick search. I understand I could also do this via a proximity search but thought that a milestone search would be far better. 

Do you know of anyway of doing a milestone search within the lemma headwords section Bradley?

I think what you want to search is the lemmatext or headword AND bible reference. Here is a search that does that using πνεῦμα and the book of John.

https://ref.ly/logos4/Search?kind=BasicSearch&q=lemma:%CF%80%CE%BD%CE%B5%E1%BF%A6%CE%BC%CE%B1+AND+%3CJohn%3E&match=stem&in=raw:LibraryCatalog%7CQuery%3dtype:lexicon%7CResourceKind%3dNone%7CSupportedResourceIds%3d%7CSupportedTypes%3d%7CTitle%3d36%2520resources%2520with%2520type:lexicon

It searches for resources that is type:lexicon with lemma as the headword and within that definition includes any reference to the book of John. Not sure how you plan to use this, but I think it accomplishes your objective. Milestone search is really for commentaries etc. that are reference based resources. Lexicons are lemma based for the most part.

Hope this helps.

To clarify, the provided search does not search for articles with the specified headword. The search just looks for articles that contain the tagged lemma and a reference in John. This may miss some results, and may find some incorrect results.

Unfortunately, it's not currently possible to search by headword milestones like you can for reference milestones.

Thank you to all of you for the input. So I am right in saying that you can’t use a milestone search using the Lemma (Greek or Hebrew Headword) within a Lexicon?

If not this, could be an incredibly useful milestone search capability to include in a future release.

Happy to vote for this, unfortunately I don't think it will be a priority with the wider audience.
