I am trying to do a search using the latest public build and SR.  I was not getting good results, so I took all of yesterday to rebuild my entire index.  I did a search today and still get unexpected results.  

For example, 

I have almost 8,000 resources and a search for the word "Jesus" only returns a hit in a total of 245 resources.  Really, only 245 out of 8,000 mention the name of Jesus?

I next did a search for Jesus just in my Journals.  I have over 900 journals and I only get hits for the word Jesus in 28 of those volumes.  I find it hard to believe that only 3 volumes of Bibliotheca Sacra mention Jesus.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?  Any developers care to hazard a guess on why the Mac version is unable to do a proper search?

I cannot duplicate the problem using L4 Mac SR 7. I am just now downloading SR 8.

SR 8 does not do anything to resolve the problem.  Hopefully someone will help soon.

Logs from search attempts in SR8.  I doubt there is any new information, but just in case...

Maybe needed to search "Jesus" rather than "jesus"?

Hi Joe

Your screenshot shows you have a lowercase "j" at the start of Jesus.

Is it possible that you have "Match case" set in your search options?

With this set I get similar results to you (scaled down as I have fewer resources)

ugh... what a dumb mistake.  I was building off an older search that had used "Match Case" and I did not realize it was set. 

Thanks Graham for helping!

Which shows, once again, why the "match" options should be visible buttons and not hidden under the icon!

Found my old Suggestion thread about this: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/26173/318984.aspx#318984. Please go and support it if you haven't earlier.
