I am trying to create a collection of works that reference Theodotion, and then make that a collection to refer back to when I researching certain passages to see if Theodotion made a recension of the passage.  

Other than adding them one by one (there's a lot) is there any way to create the collection from the search results?

Wow! This would really be useful. Unfortunately, I can offer no solution. I bet this would get votes as a feature request. I hope one of the MVPs can wizard a work around.

I tried doing something similar just today and the best option I had (which is still not very efficient) was to drag and drop items from search into a Bibliography. From the Bibliography you can export it to a collection.

Not ideal, but still faster than creating collection rules.

I am not at my computer right now, but I thought you could create a bibliography from the results, and then from that create a collection. Perhaps I'm making that up in my heard. I'll check when I get to the house if no one else confirms/denies before then.

An accurate collection rule would be favored as this search in my library has 1,430 resource results.

I think, if I was to do this, is to utilize tags.  It's still a slow process, one by one.  

From the search results, bring up the resource, then bring up the information pane, and add your tag "Theodotion" or whatever to each resource.  Then create a collection using mytag:Theodotion.   It's still time consuming, but just an option to consider.  Even though it's still time consuming, it seems a better approach than trying to add in possibly hundreds of resources into a collection.  

Just a thought.

I found some interesting ways to add to Bibliography in the add menu that might make it easier.  I tried copying from clipboard but nothing popped up.

I've found that saving a bibliography with thousands of items into a collection bogs down in Logos.  For instance, I created a bibliography of over 5,000 resources and tried to save as a collection.  Logos really bogs down.  So, be careful about adding in large amounts of resources in the collection without a rule, and just using "Plus these resources".

Mine turned out to be about 80 resources.  So I opened them all and clicked add to Bibliography.

Meeshell, I'm glad you were provided with a workable solution to your question. That's why I don't let a day go by without searching the forums for useful tips and novel ideas. Blessings
