Make Your Search Case Sensitive

Today’s guest post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos training seminars.

By default, Libronix searches are not case sensitive. If you search for God you’ll also receive god as a hit. If you just want to find god you must execute a case sensitive search. Choose Search | Bible Search. In the search box you must type the word case and then place what you want to be case sensitive in parenthesis. For example type this in the Search box: case(god).

  1. Although much of the power of Logos’ search engine is perhaps quite easy for programmers to use, I believe what would really help the average user is the addition of an optional Search process which would, in a series of steps (or dialogue boxes) described in plain English, would allow the average user to do more sophisticated searches with less amount of effort (or experience with many types of operators and search syntax).
    Example: First question/entry box might ask, “Which term or terms do you wish to search for?” I could enter: Moses God
    Next question, since it would notice I have entered two words, “Please indicate the type(s) of search you would like” (and then there could be boxes to check, such as “Must be within __ words of each other” and/or “Case sensitive”), and so on.
    My qualm with Logos isn’t over the quality of the search engine, only that I rarely feel able to take full advantage of it… and I likely believe I am not alone. I think this would really help the average Logos user, of which I would number myself.
    Thanks for your consideration, AND the blog!
