I need help with advanced search capabilities in Logos 8.

I want to be able to search for specific search terms in specific chapters of a non-Bible book in Logos.

For example, in Berkouer's "Study in Dogmatics: The Return of Christ" I want to search for the word "parousia" in only chapter 5.

On the "Search All Text for", I tried clicking "All Text" to see if I could limit the search to the given chapter(s), but it doesn't seem to be there.

I found a post on a Facebook group that suggested changing the default "Article" to "Search results". But in Berkouer I only see Sentence, Paragraph, and Article as drop-down options.

I thought in the search field there might be some advanced search operators I could use, for example:

parousia <chapter=5>

But that didn't work either.

Any I idea how to limit searches to the given chapter(s) in non-Bible resources in Logos 8?

Thanks so much!

The answer varies from resource to resource but you analysis is generally accurate -- you need to enforce the limitation manually.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Unfortunately Basic Search (in 8.17 Beta 2) lacks Passage filtering for Berkouwer's "Study in Dogmatics: The Return of Christ" so can only search the entire resource. Concordance Tool can specify a page range for Chapter 5 (pages 140-169) so "parousia" occurs 88 times.
