I have been refining a visual filter based on marking techniques similar to the Precept Ministries studies. I have most of them working well using various search criteria discussed in the help center, wiki site, and training videos.

However, I am stuck on trying to find a way to apply a double underline in green to "all geographical locations". I can get regions, or specific cities, towns, villages, or named mountains marked but not one search/visual filter that marks All of them. This has been especially challenging because I run into issues like in Exodus where sometimes the term "Egypt" is used for the people group in one place and geographic location a few verses later. Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated.

In the NT you could go for Louw-Nida domains for the VF. In the OT you might look into categories in AFAT, or maybe there's a sense tagging that helps you.

I think this kind of ambiguity comes from the context, and possibly different scholars take a different take on when a geographical term refers to a place and when to its inhabitants.

I was hoping to be able to use the Bible format and not go into the Morph settings. I tried to a Media search with Maps too but not much success there either. It is looking like that I may need to create a separate filter just for proper named locations.

I did try a <Place Any Village> but it selects any word "village" and references to them and not the name of the village/city/town. Same results with a <Thing> operator.
