I need to search text for a Question Mark. But if I enter a ? then it's treated as a wildcard search. Is there a way to search for the ? character

Unfortunately there is no way in Logos 4 to search for punctuation. If you were to post what the point of your search is we might be able to suggest an alternate path to what you seek.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm assisting with a study on "The Questions that Wesley asked"

I need to find in his journals each time he asks a question and the easiest way would be to simply search for a '?'

The only only workaround I can think of is to copy the text to Word and then complete the search from there.

I agree, that is probably the only way to do it for a regular book.

I don't have Wesley's works, so I don't know whether his journals come in one resource file or several. But it looks from the product description page that they are likely in one volume. Thus you can open that volume in Logos, scroll up to the top, press Ctrl+F (for Find), type ? into the Find box, and press Enter. Press Enter again and again to find the subsequent question marks. You can also use the up and down arrow buttons to the right of the Find box to search up and down in the resource.

Ctrl+F works well. Thanks.
