There was an article a while back on How to search for all words in Latin in your books.  Also how to search for all words in books.  How do you do this in Logos 5?

If   lang:latin   is typed into the My Library window all books containing latin will be listed.

Is this what you are asking?

You can search for all words in Logos 5 by searching for *

Note that we strongly discourage this because it will take a very long time and possibly use a lot of memory. (Logos 5 is not optimized for "find every word"-style searches.)

I think you could search for all Latin words by searching for Latin:* but since this would take so long, I haven't tried it.

Searching a collection for latin words beginning with a letter is a bit quicker:

The second search could be expanded to include the rest of the alphabet.

Logos 4 was a complete rewrite of the engine, so the way they do search is different internally now. It just isn't as efficient for wildcards as the method used in Libronix. Logos 5 is just an expansion of the Logos 4 engine so it has the same limitation.
