Am in the process of tagging all of my Logos resources and it would be helpful to be able to filter by "Indexes".  Have tried both "Index:<index type>" and "Indexes:<index type>" and these don't seem to work. Is it possible to create such a filter?  If so, what is the syntax to do so?

Apologize if this has already been discussed elsewhere - couldn't find anything, though.

Thanks.

It's not possible, sorry.

The data is available in the library catalog (as 'traits'), but traits aren't currently visible or searchable. It's been asked for before, as part of a more general request. There's a thread here if you'd like to add your support: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/70687.aspx

You would have to do it knowing the index for a resource or resource type.  And then it depends how technical you want to be as, for example, there are many 'Bible' datatypes. For overall 'Bible' datatypes, you could use:

type:(Bible, Bible-Commentary, Bible-Notes, Bible-Apparatus, Bible-Cross-Reference, Bible-Harmony, Study-Bible) OR mytag:Bible-Index

type:monograph and others like type:devotional require filtering and tagging for those with bible milestones. You can search them using {Milestone <Bible Gen-Rev>}, and then tag the resulting resources appropriately (mytag:Bible-Index).

For other indexes, you just need to know the datatype and then apply a {Milestone ...}  search as above (with an appropriate range).
