Logos Tech Tip: 4 Easy Ways to Find Anything in Logos

One of the most tangible benefits of a digital library is the ability to quickly search and find whatever you need with a couple clicks. No matter what you’re looking for, Logos has a way to search for it.

  • The Selection menu runs the most relevant search on your word or phrase. Just select a word or phrase and click “search.” 
  • Inline search is the best way to find something within an open resource.
  • The Context menu allows you to painlessly run advanced searches while examining any open resource. Right-click any word or phrase to examine your tools and search options. Logos will take care of the details. 
  • Use the full Search Tool to conduct basic and advanced searches on any resource or on your entire library.

Templates help you run advanced searches without requiring you to know special syntax. For instance, you can find every time Jesus speaks to his disciples about love by providing the speaker (Jesus), the recipients (disciples), and the topic (love), and Logos will add this in the search field: {Speaker <Person Jesus>} INTERSECTS {Addressee <Person Disciples>} INTERSECTS love.

      Hi Dr. Gallant,

      Best, Karen

  2. I’m trying to do a search for how many times a constructed chain appears in the Hebrew text of the Pentateuch. I have followed the steps suggested in the videos as well as the instructions on the logos search page, however the system always tells me there are no results. I have tried to do the same with verbs, conjunctions, etc., and the result is the same: there are no results.
    What do you suggest doing in this case?

      Hi Jose!

      Thanks for your question! We recommend heading to the Logos Forums on Faithlife.com and asking your question there. Without screenshots and a few more details, it’s tricky for us to answer here. I hope that helps!
