Hi all

I'm looking to search "oró" (this is "to pray" in english, past time) and not "oro" (which is gold in english). I have tried several ways... Can I limit the search by accent?

Thanks again

Hi, Michael:

Here's how I searched:

  1. Find a verse in your Spanish Bible (ie: RVA) that has oró in it.
    (The closest I could find on short notice was "oré" in Deuteronomy 9:20.)
  2. Click and drag your mouse to highlight the word.
  3. Press [Ctrl+C] ( or [Cmd+C] in Mac) to copy the text to your clipboard.
  4. Open a search pane (the magnifier on the menu bar)
  5. Press [Ctrl+V] to paste the word into the search field.
  6. If you don't see results, click the blue arrow at the right-hand end of the search field.

If these steps don't get what you needed, please come back and ask again.

Jack

You looking for the Latin or Greek?

 

oro, 1, pray.  DVNT

***

3735.      ὄρος ŏrŏs, or´-os; prob. from an obs.  ὄρω ŏrō (to rise or "rear;" perh. akin to 142; comp. 3733); a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain):— hill, mount (-ain).  NSDHGW

Not by accent. The closest I got in an English interface was spanish:oro (it produced different results to latin:oro).

Thank you all for your time but it didnt work...

I get: 52 results in the NT (RV60) for "oró". It has "oro" and "oró"

oro: means a noun "gold" or a verb "to pray" (in present tense: Yo oro) this is in spanish

oró: means "to pray" (past tense)

I was looking only for "oró". What about those "term modifiers" in logos 3. Do they still work? In other words, can I limit the search by accents?

 

Thank you in advance

As I said above, No;  Logos 4/5 don't have those useful 'modifiers' from Libronix. The Search menu has some options, but Match Case & Match all Word Forms don't come close.

Thank you Dave

That's really sad. I have spent few thousands in a software incapable of doing what it did in previous versions. That's real progress!!!! :-(

:-( :-( :-( :-(

the search worked perfect on Libronix! it found 9 instances only for "oró" I used exact(word)

I would recommend Logos to keep an eye in this issue since its frustrating to have a supposed improved software incapable of doing what it did before

Thank you

I have added a UserVoice item to get Logos's attention on this. Only my 3 votes there so far, but others please vote for it if you care about it:

Thank you Rosie

I thought no one else will be interested on my issue. I went and vote too. I have found many other accented terms. So, now I go back to L3 for exact(word) searches. it's ridiculous!!!!

Quite agree, but according to Logos' stats (from Libronix) there were only a few users of "advanced" search techniques
