I am trying to generate complete vocabulary lists (original languages) for texts like the LXX, apostolic fathers, etc. 

In a wordlist, is there a way to select the entire text of a document (e.g. the Logos LXX, LXX with alternate texts, etc.) as the parameters for the search?

In working with the NT text (NA28), I found that I could use the parameter "Matthew-Revelation,"  but in working with the LXX I find that the parameters "Genesis-Bel and the Dragon", "Genesis-Malachi", "Genesis-Revelation" (I know, I know...) fail to generate a complete LXX vocabulary.  SO, I was hoping that a parameter like "all" or "complete text" would select everything in the document I am searching as the parameters for the search/wordlist generation.

Eventually, I would like to work more with more obscure texts like the tagged semitic inscriptions texts.  Unless there is a universal search parameter (like the one I'm suggesting above), I'm guessing I'm in for a lot of trouble.

Thanks for your thoughts!

There is no such parameter.

Gen - Bel should work. But when I tried Bel in Logos LXX I got no lemmas, whilst Jeremiah was fine. It seems that the interlinear data (e.g. in Jeremiah) is required to generate lemmas as it works with Bel from LXX Swete. I'm not sure if it is a resource errror.

Thanks for the tip, Dave.  Too bad there is no parameter for this yet.  All the data is there, and all the right tools to work with it.  I might try to see if I can whip up a fix using some python code, but it will be a while.
