This Feature Makes Searching Your Logos Library a Breeze

One of the greatest benefits of Logos is the ability to find anything in your library.

When you open the Search panel and set the search type to Basic (A), you can select All Resources (B) or Everything (C).

Everything Search

 

I’m often asked, “What’s the difference between these two search types?”

Simply put, All Resources searches all of your books while Everything searches all of your books plus the Factbook, Atlas, Community Tags, and more!

Imagine you’re studying Jesus’ prayer in Matthew 26:36. When you read that he was in the Garden of Gethsemane you say to yourself, “I know I need info about Gethsemane, but what do I need—and where do I start?”

In times like these, try an Everything Search:

  • Open a Bible to Matthew 26:36 (D)
  • Right click on the word Gethsemane (E)
  • Select the English word Gethsemane on the right side of Context menu (F)
  • Select Search: everything from the left side of the context menu (G)

Everything Search 2

When the Search opens, it is set to Basic (H) and Everything (J). As you peruse the search results, notice:

  • Preferred Bible lists occurrences of the word in your designated Bible (J)
  • Factbook links you to reports containing your word (K)
  • Topic shows links to articles about your word (L)
  • Media displays images related to your word (M)
  • Atlas Results provides links to relevant maps (N)
  • Library Results presents every occurrence of your word in the Library (the same as searching All Resources) (O)

As you can see, the Everything Search provides a buffet of choices to further your study.
