Is there not a way to automatically search owned systematic theologies without the further upgrade of the Lexham Survey of Theology? (Which I will certainly do when able)

I just purchased the Bronze Base package and have now discovered that this feature is not included and it seems no search accesses any of my systematic theologies unless I specifically pull them up and perform the search in the book itself. Is this actually the case, or am I just not understanding the process?

I have looked at many tutorials to no avail. I am trying to be patient but this software is rather challenging especially when it seems most of the tutorials are either using a different version altogether or a base package far above mine.

I am hoping (and almost certain) this is operator error, and if it is please forgive my lack of knowledge

Thank you in advance for any helpful replies.

The most basic feature of Logos is the ability to search. You can search a book, a collection, or your entire library. 

In the above screenshot, you can click on the blue hyperlinks to edit your selection. If I understand you correctly, you will want to click on "all resources" and change it to either 1) all open resources or 2) a named collection. Have you learned how to create collections yet?

Hey David, what types of searches were you hoping to achieve? If we knew exactly what you are looking for we might be able to help you with a workaround.

To add to what's already been said, you can restrict the set of resources you are searching within the search window itself

If you click the All Resources button and then entry type:"systematic theology", Logos will give you the option of selecting all resources in your library of that type.

Select that and run the search and you just get hits from within those types of resources
