Hi,

In Logos 5 I was used to just typing a Bible reference (e.g. Matthew 28:18-20) in the Basic search with the option of "all resources", pressing enter and having it come up with every occurrence of those verses in my library (including commentaries, journals, etc.), and I was able to sort by count.

Since I've upgraded to Logos 6 I seem to have lost that ability. A Basic search for Matthew 28:18-20 now only comes up with 42 results in 36 articles in 5 resources!

I've tried it with other Bible references too. A search for <topic Great Commission> comes up with zero hits.

A passage guide provides me with links to all my Matthew commentaries but zero journals (even though I know there are journal articles on this topic and quoting these verses).

How do I do what I used to do so simply?

Just put angle brackets around your scripture reference. <>

Geoff:

Are you perchance looking at just the results from "Your Books"?

Geoff,

The only thing I can think of is a corrupted index. It would require rebuilding the index if that's the case. If no one else comes up with another suggestion, then type Rebuild Index in the Command Bar and hit Return. Depending on the size of your library, this can take awhile to complete.

Thanks. That worked.

Glad to hear that Mark's suggestion worked. It certainly did seem that something odd was happening.

I hope you take time to participate more in the forums in the days ahead.

What is the difference between a search with scope "Everything" and one whose scope is "All Text" in "All Resources"?

Everything searches more than your books (resources) specifically:

  • it breaks your highest priority Bible out into a separate section
  • it searches documents, Factbook and media
  • it searches your library for books on the subject not references to the subject
  • it searches web resources - atlas, community tags, books.logos.com

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
