Recently, it seems as if the Fuzzy Bible Search function has become less usable. In the past several days, the majority of my searches have shown NOTHING at all under the Fuzzy Bible Search, when in the past, it has almost always populated something, even if the wrong passage.  

I recently did an everything search for "never leave you or forsake you" and it came up with nothing (searching the ESV). But it gave me the suggestion to search "never leave you nor forsake you" (emphasis added) and it found it right away because that's the exact wording. I thought the Fuzzy Bible Search was for when you couldn't remember the exact wording. 

Has anyone else noticed this? I hope it's not just me...

Were you expecting different results?

I get a lot more (no very helpful) stuff if I change to a Basic Search.

That's what I have it on, a Basic search, searching everything. 

And yes, I was expecting more, as up until very recently, I always got a lot more through on the Fuzzy Bible Search. I could type in "imitate Christ" and get a result in the Fuzzy Bible Search that would match the ESV search below it (see screenshot). And I used "imitate Christ" just as an example for this post).

I don't think it is the exact wording when translations use both for the same passage i.e. it is fuzzy.

That's the point I"m trying to bring up. I used to be able to put down a ramble of words related to a verse I was trying to find, and 90% of the time, the Fuzzy Bible Search found it. Now, I put near exact words down, with only one word off, and nothing in the Fuzzy Bible Search (FBS for short). I am really thinking something changed in how the FBS works.

Sections collapsed to save space...

Do you have your whole library downloaded?

Are you saying that if you expand the "Fuzzy Bible Search" section, that you don't see any results listed? Nothing will show up for Fuzzy Bible Search unless you actually have the section expanded. Other sections behave differently and will show a summary of results even if collapsed.

Actually, I just restarted logos, and it's working just fine again. I forgot the first rule of fixing anything on a computer...turn it off then back on again...

Yes, even with the Fuzzy Bible Search expanded, it was showing nothing. Sorry about that screenshot, I didn't realize it was collapsed when I took that screenshot. But, all is well now.
