Is There a Way to Find Notes Tagged with "Books Read" OTHER than Using the Filter Facet "Tags"?

While reading a book in Logos, I create a note so I can put my highlights and insights there. Once I've read the book, I tag it with "Books Read."

Right now, I don't have that many tagged "Books Read" so lots of other tags are listed above this tag to the point that I have to click the "more" button under the Tags filter so I can even see it.

Is there a shortcut or another method for quickly locating these notes tagged as "Books Read?"

In the search panel, perform a basic search in Your Documents. Search for:

mytag:"Books Read"

That works, and I can use this method for now, but I had hoped to find a way to search for the notes WITHIN the Notes Tool. Oh well...if that doesn't exist, I just need to get busy reading more books so that the "Books Read" facet will rank higher in the Tags list. At that point, this will no longer be an issue. Smile

Thanks!

Is it possible to make Paul's search into a shortcut?

Sorry to interrupt Sharon, but I believe you are right in thinking you should be able to search for a note within the Notes Tool.

Why else is there a search box in the Notes Tool. You can't use it to locate a particular note or anything else that I know off? What is it for? I have tried asking this in the forums but no one has answered yet. Hopefully someone will see your post (or mine) and be able to help us both learn something about this feature.Wink

Any thoughts Mike?

Great question. You would think the note tool could search note tags. Perhaps someone knows a way.

I also don't like the fact that tags are sorted by count instead of alphabetically. No option to change that that I've found.

I have other gripes about the note system which I why I avoid Logos notes and use other methods.

If you are hoping to use a search in the Notes tool to find Notes with your tag, then you are in luck. Use the search button just to the right of where it says "Filters" and type your tag. This will show the tag for you to click to narrow down your list of selected notes to those with that tag. This even works for tags that aren't in the first 25 that would normally show up in the list.

The top Search box will locate a word or phrase within your notes (not tags)

The Find box under Filters can be used to find an entry in the sidebar e.g. a Tag value that is hidden (click the Search icon to reveal the Find box).

Whenever I finish a book, I tag it "Read Completed."  When I want to find what books I have finished, I - 

  1. Open my library
  2. Type "read completed" in the search bar
  3. Sort my library by "My Tags" and all the books I have completed are listed there

I find that this works very easy and quickly

Thank you Dave for addressing my search box issue.

Have you tried this? It doesn't produce any expected results.

I have tried to search a word and a phrase  and Bible reference, but unsuccessfully. I have tried searching my note from within my Mark notebook on Mark 11:1-11 and it brings up many Mark notes but not that one.

If I search "light to the gentiles"  without selecting a notebook or from in my Mark notebook it brings up all kinds of notes and I still have to scroll down though to find the one with that phrase

Same thing with a word

Not helpful at all, so what am I missing?

I'll move this to a new thread

That's what I was looking for. Works great! Thanks, Dave! Smile

Dave explained the same thing, too. Got it! Thanks, Andrew!

Thanks for the suggestion, Ronald. I considered tagging my books read in the way you described, but it would mess up my tagging system because I categorize each resource in Logos AND I only want ONE tag per resource.

But Dave and Andrew explained how to use the "Find" within Notes. I'm all set now.

I'm wondering if some of these people that know so much.... actually started using Logos on the Mayflower when they were coming to America?  Geeked

xn = Christan  man=man -- Acts 11:26 "....and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch".

Hate to break it to you, but I had an ancestor on the Mayflower and the story that's been handed down says that wi-fi was terrible mid-Atlantic.

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

Got a chuckle out of that  ..... and if I was a betting man (which I'm not) but if I was.... I'd bet you are right!!

I got to know wi-fi and Logos after coming to Australia during the brain-drain era in England. OTOH it might have been the ten pound passport and passage costs!
