I am trying to set up a visual filter for the nouns and verbs of ἁμαρτία,ἁμαρτάνω on the ESV. It will only catch ἁμαρτία. However, if I simply put "sin" in english it will catch all forms of the word, both nouns and verbs.

What am I doing wrong? I have tried on Mac and Windows.

Thanks.

Michael, 

I believe this filter will work for you: https://documents.logos.com/documents/267b26b1d31d4df6b72cd5dfe3e57b4e/details

Instead of filtering by individual lemmas, I instead used the root code: <Root = lbs/el/αμαρτανω>

Also, make sure you enable the visual filter within the ESV:

Thank you very much for the help, Jonathan.

Is there a document or help file where I can learn how to construct such a thing? I would like to know why and when I should use certain things in certain orders. For instance, does there need to be a space before and after the "=" sign? What does lbs mean? Or, el? Thanks again.

You mean like a manual?

What a concept...

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

You have buy it from MP and it still won't be that comprehensive, it'll only give you a taste of what can be done without truly training you how to do it.

Michael,

I've attached a screenshot wherein I show you how to move from the English (ESV) to the Visual Filter. 

1) Right click on the word you'd like to highlight. In this case, "sin."

2) You can choose either the Lemma or the Root.

3) On the far left, you should see "Search:" and "this resource." Click that option.

This will bring up the  search results and also provide you with the appropriate code (if you don't want to type it in yourself from scratch).

el = Greek

he - Hebrew

The wiki is quite comprehensive on this - check primarily under search - advanced features. It is common to use Search to build the argument then copy the argument into a visual filter when it is working as you wish.

Visual Filter is a search whose results are highlighted.  Wiki has => https://wiki.logos.com/Visual_Filter and Getting Started Search => https://wiki.logos.com/Getting_Started_with_Logos#Search has links to many Wiki pages about Search, which work in Logos 4, 5, and 6.

Logos 5 added root tagging for Logos Morphologies.

Michael McLane:
For instance, does there need to be a space before and after the "=" sign? What does lbs mean? Or, el?

Space around "=" sign is optional.  Changing Morph search to Bible Search automatically changes search syntax to include morphology:

root:αμαρτανω

([field bible, content] <Root = lbs/el/αμαρτανω>)

Logos Greek Morphology is the Logos Bible Software (lbs) morphology for Greek (el) while Logos Hebrew Morphology is Logos Bible Software (lbs) for Hebrew (he) and Logos Aramaic Morphology is lbs/arc

Visual Filter Bible Search can combine English word(s) and Greek root with different highlighting of combinations:

Searching a custom series for Greek root found LXX translations of many Hebrew and Aramaic roots so Visual Filter to highlight sin could include ESV Old Testament using lbs/he and lbs/arc (or use their English translation)

Root search found many lbs/el results:

New Revised Standard Version published in 1989 has Greek Reverse Interlinear tagging for deuterocanonical books.

Personally added year prefix to many Bible Titles so alphabetic sort is chronological, which is useful in Text Comparison

By the way, other Greek (el) Morphologies are js for Swanson, lls for GRAMCORD, and fr for Friberg:

Resources that had Robinson Greek Morphology (mr) were converted to Logos Greek Morphology.

Wow! Thanks to all of you for pointing me in the right direction. Very helpful.

Also, I have noticed some people using curly brackets "{...}" and on a quick glance did not see an explanation. What is that about?

Thanks again

{} are used with some special searches added in L6. They have some basic documentation in the wiki which will get fleshed out over time.

The new L6 search features are described in the wiki here: https://wiki.logos.com/Search_HELP#Logos_6 (see the various Search Extensions below there for when curly brackets are used in search)

Some of the curly-bracket search syntax is also explained with examples in the "New search" threads in the Logos 6 forum:

New Search: {Milestone} - https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92761.aspx

New Search: {Label} - https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92700.aspx

New Search: {PassageList} - https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92765.aspx

New Search: {Speaker} - https://community.logos.com/forums/t/92764.aspx 

Note that those search syntaxes literally take the curly brackets.

But sometimes curly brackets are used as a convention in computer manuals to tell what types of parameters a given command takes. For example, the documentation for the Lookup command (documented on the wiki Logos 6 Commands page) looks like this:

In this case, you do not type in the curly brackets. They mean that the Lookup (or Look up) command takes one required parameter which could be either a Term (a word or phrase to look up a definition of) OR a Reference (e.g., a Scripture reference). The vertical bar between the two options is known as an "OR-bar" because it means OR. So actual examples of how you might use the Lookup command are:

Lookup flagitious

Lookup John 3:16
