Hello fellow Logos users!

I've dug around here a bit but can't figure out a bug in my Logos 9 software (9.2.0.0014). I'm using MacOS  Big Sur.

Here's the issue: when I search for a term, it searches for more than just the term I ask it to.  For example, I was doing a search of all my resources for "habit" and the search included "habits", and "habitation" even when I put "parenthesis" around the word "habit."  Or when I search for "command" in the NT it also brings up the words "commanded" and "commandment." I don't think this was happening yesterday and before!!  How do I fix or change this?

I did index my library based on another thread I read here.  But that didn't help  Anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks in advance.

Anyone have any suggestions?

1. Open a new Search panel.

2. Click on the triple dots.

3. Uncheck "Match all word forms"

4. Enjoy!

Thank you!  I wonder how that got unchecked? I haven't touched it.  Hmmm... Oh well, works now.  Have a good day!

SineNomine answered your question, but for clarification: These “” are quote marks. These () are parentheses. I wasn’t sure if you called quote marks by the wrong name or used the wrong syntax. 

If you want to find an exact phrase, you will use quote marks.

Actually, the problem is that it was checked. You want it to be unchecked.

Yes, thanks for the correction. I meant these: " " - quote marks.

Match all word forms can be checked while using [match all] OR [match exact] to restrict search: e.g.

[match all] habit
