I was trying to do a textual search after looking up a greek word in the bible word study tool.  I wanted to see what the 8 references were in the works of Josephus.  However, the search-morph tool is not allowing me to bring up any of the English translations of josephus's work to display in parallel with the search results.  I know this used to be possible while I was in the middle of my greek exegetical classes, but right now, it's not letting me choose anything else that has the name josephus from the add version.  Has anyone else hit this issue?

Welcome Mike,

Morph Search has a problem recognising translations that are Ancient Manuscripts. Faithlife know about it, but there is no time for it to be fixed.

I appreciate the information. That would explain a lot as I last really used this for my Greek classes back in logos 7 or 8, so it seems that version 9 broke this feature.

Work around idea is two tabs: Morph Search & Multiview Resources (Greek & English Josephus in parallel)

I am not sure if this helps you, but I often use the right arrow key to get to the same place in the English translation of the Greek document (assuming that I have the resource in both language).

I'm still on L7, and indeed one can match up Josephus morph search results with english version (earlier this week, Philo too).

That said:

- The menu doesn't seem to know which resources have Josephus indices (displays anything with an index, looks like)

- The matchup is barely helpful, but does get the requisite text block having the search word (do a visual search in the english text block)
