In my third month with Logos after leaving another Bible software company and am impressed but the ole' guy isn't that sharp on learning all this new stuff.  But I'm almost sure Logos has the ability to allow me to automatically find all the greek imperative verbs and highlight them, correct?

Any advice on how to do that?  I'm learning about visual filters but the forums all seem to jump in a step or two further down the line on how to use them.  Thanks for any help with this even if it's an online tutorial.

Welcome Karl

Start with a Morph Search for Imperatives, by typing @

You should then have a search for @V??M. Run the search

From the Search menu, save as a Visual Filter

Then give it a title and choose your formatting

That's it.

You can activate/deactivate this in the Visual Filters menu of the SBLGNT Greek bible.

Create a Visual Filter for a document with a Greek morphology. (A Greek Bible, like SBLGNT, or an English Bible with a reverse interlinear, like ESV.)

Then put

@V??M

in the box on the left in the Visual Filter document, and choose a highlight style on the right. Then turn the visual filter on in that resources, using the 'three dots' icon.

Hi Karl - and welcome to the forums

To find forms of words use the morph search as per https://wiki.logos.com/Morphological_Search and to highlight them you use those morph terms in a visual filter.

Have a look at https://wiki.logos.com/Visual_Filter, the links off that and the section in the article on morphological filters.

You can also run the Morph Search on any Logos Bible with a Reverse Interlinear, like the KJV1900, NASB96, NIV, ESV, or NRSV. The results will then be available in that Bible.

EDIT: looks like you got a lot of fine help already.

Is there a reason why the visual filter that I created did not appear under the "three-dot" icon in the resource?

What resource are you looking at? It has to be a translation tagged with morph data

Provide a screenshot of your filter and state the resources's name. Are you on OS x or Windows? What version of Logos?

Dave,

That search help was a huge help! Would you please help me do the same search but help me use a filter to find all of the imperatives "Jesus" gave only?

Thanks so much!!

add the string "WITHIN {Speaker <Person Jesus>}" giving "<LogosMorphGr ~ V??M????> WITHIN {Speaker <Person Jesus>}"

Free Basic (Logos 7) & Verbum Basic lack datasets for Speaker and Person searching. A free Basic Bible has Words of Christ that can be searched for imperatives:

<LogosMorphGr ~ V??M????> INTERSECTS words-of-christ:(a*,b*,c*,d*,e*,f*,g*,h*,i*,j*,k*,l*,m*,n*,o*,p*,q*,r*,s*,t*,u*,v*,w*,x*,y*,z*)

Screen shot shows <LogosMorphGr ~ V??M????> WITHIN {Speaker <Person Jesus>} finding nothing (due to lack of datasets).

Next search shows Words of Christ search. Third search using Logos 7 finds imperatives in Words of Christ.

Keep Smiling Smile
