Yes, I am about to make a number of suggestions to improve the Search function - incremental improvements - but first I want users to indicate their priorities by voting on any or all of the following feedbear search suggestions:

Add multiple search scopes for Bible search | Faithlife Feedback allow more user control to search phrase, clause, sentence, verse, paragraph, pericope, chapter ....

Add faceted browsing sidebar to Search | Faithlife Feedback - the concept is using facet constraints to narrow results ... great if well-implemented but could be misleading/abused if not

Accept known alternate spellings for place names in Atlas | Faithlife Feedback a no brainer but part of a larger issue of synonyms in Factbook which users must have a means to report and see the disposition of.

Make all Search parameters and argument visible at once | Faithlife Feedback this has been an irritant to me for over a decade ... the match options hidden in the panel menu should be visible on the Search panel so that one sees the entire search parameters.

Search for People by attribute | Faithlife Feedback a solid suggestion that I would like to see extended to events.

Restore L7 Search cookbook content | Faithlife Feedback Not in place of new templates but in addition to ...

Add ability to sort Basic Search by Resource Prioritization | Faithlife Feedback a non-brainer from my personal perspective

Add interactive section to Everything search | Faithlife Feedback okay, this reflects my own obsession with completeness

Additional "Common Divisions" in Bible Browser, Bible Search (and Bible Book Explorer?) | Faithlife Feedback okay, I may have gotten carried away based on the current inability to limit to New Testament or Old Testament but ...

Quick Clear for Search | Faithlife Feedback another no brainer ... this particular UI issue doesn't bother me but if it bothers you or your friends ...

Add Vertical Bar | for OR searching | Faithlife Feedback in the same class as the request above

Sort search results by original publication date | Faithlife Feedback another no brainer

Sorry if I omitted some of your favorites, I omitted any that were general rather than specific requests, those that I hadn't seen requested multiple times over the years, and those that I couldn't envision a practical implementation. Others applying the same criteria would probably highlight different requests.

I've voted for most of these good suggestions. There are so many projects that Faithlife could undertake so it is very helpful for people to vote to help determine that priority.

A couple of these overlap and some suggestions are too broad/vague. I've commented accordingly.
