Search for Just the Root Word

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.

When you execute a search on a word like bless you’ll also receive hits on the various forms of the word like blessed, blessing and blessings. This feature is called stemming. If you just want to locate a word without the forms you must type nostem and then your word in parenthesis. For example, to find just the word bless, type this in the search box: nostem(bless).

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).
