Note that the resource is simply chosen as an example and that it is annotations only ...

Question 1: Why is the chart not tagged so that it appears in a chart search?

Question 2: Why does the right click menu bring up information regarding the non-existent text of Mk 5:23 for the heading of a chart? It appears that it fails to recognize the boundary between the verse commentary and the broader (generic) table. Many of the items on the right click menu refer to the non-existent text rather than the commentary text which is what actually appears in this resource ... not particularly helpful clutter, IMHO.

Becuase Media search is searching for images that are charts, not text charts.

I'll look into why this is tagged this way.

Thank you. All these years I've thought "charts" meant "charts" in the more inclusive sense. No wonder I've never found what I wanted. But then what are "tables"?

We were just having this discussion at home the other day.  I personally say chart=table for non-science uses.  So does my spouse......What I was looking at called a graph a chart.  Uh-uh.

Tables tend to be information represented in rows and columns of a table. Charts are information represented in other ways. In my opinion, some of those tables (family trees) should be marked as charts.

Thanks Andrew. I'll try to revise my memory correctly :-)

Hi M.J.,

I just wanted to follow up. I talked with the team who creates the resources and they indicated that the table is tagged by the reference because it was in that section.

Thanks, Philana, that confirms what I suspected - another quirk of Logos tagging not necessarily intended by the authors.
