I appreciate that Logos 4 is much faster in its ability to search the entire library.

However, I haven't found a way to perform a Quick Bible Search where you get immediate feedback from the results of a Bible search as you type. All the ways to search in L4 of which I am aware require an execution of the search before results are displayed. I have not seen a way to get the as-you-type results that were in the Bible Speed search.

This search was one of my most used features in Logos 3. Maybe it was just me but it to be the fastest way to find a verses where I was vague on the exact wording. No faster way to find a specific text. I feel somewhat hampered without it. 

I realize that there is immediate feedback on available search terms from the entire index as you type but I don't find this as helpful as the immediate results from a combination of words from the Bible itself.

Is there a way to do a Speed Search in Logos 4 that I am missing?
Did this feature get cut in the paradigm shift?
Is it in the pipeline for a future release?

If it is part of a paradigm shift and there is a logic behind why Logos 4 has a better approach than the Speed Search, would someone mind helping me see that?

Thanks,

Russ

Thanks, Robert.

I just added my two cents to that discussion.

It is located here: http://community.logos.com/forums/p/3483/34157.aspx#34157.

It is title Simple Search which explains why it didn't show up when I searched for Speed search before I posted to this forum.

Hi Steve,

Apologies, if you are all ready aware of this, but subsequent to these earlier posts (which date from November 2009), Logos has introduced an approximate equivalent of 'Speed Search'. Select 'Search (while typing)' as per the screen shot below and you will get similar results to the speed search in L3...
