The LOGOS Android app doesn't give me enough options when using the search feature.  For instance, this morning I wanted to search the KJV, limiting the search to Paul's epistles.  I choose a Bible search and then clicked the drop down menu to set the resource.  But the KJV wasn't listed, so I had to leave the search screen, go to my library and choose to read the KJV before it would show up in the search resource menu.  I did that, but then there was no way to narrow the search so that the returns would be manageable.  It searched the whole Bible with so many returns that I never did find what I wanted.  It's not like one can just quickly swipe through all the returns, either.  For some reason the app loads the returns one screen at a time, making scrolling really, really slow.  Is there a way for me to get this working right?

This is the only way - as it looks as though you know - of getting specific resources into the search list. It basically is populated from your local history. I think it would be really helpful if one could "pick a book" from your Library but it is not currently possible. I don't know whether this is going to change.

I was able to reproduce this - but found that if you toggled the search from Bible to Basic and back to Bible then the passage selector option appeared again. This must be a bug!
