Is it possible to use a Visual Filter to highlight e.g. Gloss Texts in a lexicon?

Untagged gloss text can be found by searching for specific words. A lexicon has many words used for glosses so visual filter would be challenging to create for gloss terms without highlighting other uses.

I was about to ask the same question again, but then found this thread.  

I guess, my question is: is there a way to just highlight whatever is marked by Logos as "Gloss Text" or to highlight all content in the Search Field for Gloss Text? 

For example: in the library you can search for "all resources except ..." by using a query like: * ANDNOT ...

However, the asterisk * does not seem to work in visual filters. Is there another way to simply highlight all Gloss Text?

UPDATE: SOLVED

In fact, it turns out that the Visual Filters do accept the asterisk * as an operator to find all text in a Search Field. It only takes quite some time for Logos to process the query for a large lexicon as LSJ.

Some lexica like BDAG, BDB, HALOT and DCH already present the Gloss Text in bold by itself. But this Visual Filter would apply to LSJ (on the left) and Lampe (on the right)
