(edited to reflect current implementation)

R. Mansfield:

In the latest build of Logos 4 for the Mac (4.0.3.2697), there are two search boxes. One is in the icon bar, and the other in the main window (with "GO" beside it).

What is the functional distinction between these two search boxes?

I note that if I type a reference in the first box, I get a number of options to choose from:

If I type the same reference in the second search box, I get two options:

. . .

Choosing the second option produces this screen:

But again, to my main question, what is the functional differences between these two search boxes?

Cameron Watters (Faithlife):

Some background:

1) The textbox at the top of the main window (right of the three large icons) is the "Command Bar", which can be used to initiate a search, but can do a whole lot more, too (including "Facilitate Serendipitous Discovery"--literally).

2) The textbox with the "Go" button is actually the "Enter Passage, Click Go" box on the homepage. You can launch a search from it as well.

3) Previously unmentioned in this thread is the "Search Panel" which is opened when you launch a search from either of the previously described textboxes OR if you click the magnifying glass button at the top of the main window. The panel offers only basic search as of Alpha 2, but bible search should be along shortly, with morph search and syntax search following a bit later.

That should cover the basics of searching.
