It would be real nice if we could collapse related search results in V4. So that if, for example, we sorted our search results by book we could expand or collapse the results from one book. It would make finding the result we want much easier.

James, you are most definitely not alone in this desire....

 

The search results "By Book" should look like this:

Yes, I'd suggested this on another thread and am delighted others concur.

Yes please! And give the option to drop the book icon. Or function like the library page where you can choose which fields to display/sort results!

Yes

I have also suggested this in other posts:

http://community.logos.com/forums/t/9543.aspx and http://community.logos.com/forums/t/8319.aspx

The more I use Logos the more I think this needs to be given more priority.

I just did a search of my Entire Library for "1 Clement".

I got 5,457 results in 3,142 articles spread out over 32 pages.

Evaluating these results would be much easier if each resource was collapsible.

It would also be helpful if one could either 1) easily hide hits that are deemed irrelevant  or 2) mark relevant hits in the list as you are scanning the results so that the hits you deem helpful could be examined in a dedicated list.

An option for resources to be grouped in their collections (like the Cited By tool) would be nice too.

Ditto.  I made the same suggestion right after release and the first time I had 27 pages of results.  This to me is the single biggest negative in using L4 as it makes all those resources problematic rather than a positive.

I very much agree with this also.  Being able to collapse or expand the results by book (as needed) and look through just the list of books that contain hits from a search would make it a lot easier to find relevant material instead of having to wade through page after page of already expanded results that may or may not be useful.

So, please - LOGOS - add the ability to collapse & expand our search results (and view them by book) to the program. 

IMHO this would greatly improve the overall experience with Logos 4.
