All Search

Print Friendly and PDF

The All search runs in one of two modes:

  1. It defaults to running a Smart Search (an AI-assisted search) if you have AI credits and are working online
  2. It will run a Precise Search (a conventional Logos search) if you don't have AI credits, are working offline, or explicitly specify precise Logos search syntax.

This article describes using an All Search in Precise mode - for details on running a smart All search, see the article here.

You can use a Precise All search to find a word or phrase in your Logos library as well as in a range of Logos tools and services.

Running an All Search

To begin an All Search.

  1. Click the Search button in the toolbar (in Logos 9 this was to the left of the command box).
  2. Ensure that the All search type is selected. (Other search types available depend on your base package.)
  3. Logos provides several tools to help you formulate an effective query:
    • Search Helps (in the main search pane) provide basic guidance about how to construct your search.
    • Search Templates allow you to build a more complex search without having to use search syntax. Instead, select the kind of search you want to make, then enter your search terms in the dialog box that appears. Search Templates appear in the left navigation menu, which can be toggled on/off using the navigation menu icon .
    • Search Suggestions: As you type, Logos will populate a list of suggestions to help you refine your search. For best results, select one of these. Otherwise,  finish typing your search query and press Enter.

Search Results

Results are returned in one scrollable list containing two types of information:

  1. Resources from your library that contain the search terms ordered so that those deemed most relevant are at the top
  2. A range of cards that provide links to other Logos tools and features containing information relating to the search term. The cards that appear will vary depending on the search term but those that do appear will always be in the same order.

Using Search Operators

You can use search operators to create more advanced searches. For example, if you'd like to find a phrase containing two words, but you don't know the exact phrase, try typing word WITHIN 5 WORDS word. Your search results will display every occurrence where the two words you entered are mentioned within five words of each other.
