Because - and I may be incorrect on some of these points as the frustration level has risen:

  1. the Factbook for Biblical Events appears to have no coordination with either the Miracles or the Theophanies datasets
  2. neither Biblical Events nor Miracles appear to be documented
  3. Biblical Events for the deuterocanonical books are partially coded, for theophanies not coded at all, for miracles no documentation to check

I began to create a visual filter that would show me miracles (blue underline), theophanies (yellow glow) and Biblical events (red bar on the left) so that I could see at a glance what was or was not tagged by Faithlife. For my proof-of-concept, I selected a Gospel, knowing it required tedious and clunky methods:

Obviously, there should be a way to select ANY event i.e. specify the search in a single argument as is possible for Miracles and Theophanies. In addition, there is a noticeable lag between clicking in Formatting and having the menu become available . . .

Yes, but to get it priority I need FL to understand why it is needed ... the more different scenarios the better ... otherwise it will fall into the "while we're in the code for another reason it would be nice to" pile. And thank you for the fix on the <Event> search ...
