Visual Filters run a search on the text and then apply a highlight or change the color of the results of the search. The first step is to create a New Visual Filter document in the File menu.

Some Useful Filter Examples

Verbs and Nouns in Greek

Logos Greek Morphology – Greek + Reverse Interlinear

  • Imperative verbs (commands) On Fire plus nominative (subject), accusative (direct object), and vocative (one being addressed):

  • If a word has two morphological tags (identical spelling for two grammatical uses), compatible highlighting styles can appear together (e.g. nominative and vocative – Acts 19:35 Ephesus). In Phil 4:8, an adjective (translated finally) has identical spelling for nominative and accusative cases (two morphological tags), above visual filter only shows accusative highlighting (only one text glow). Can change accusative highlighting – turn off text glow, use natural highlighter with light pink – allows both styles to be displayed together (so neuter words have nominative text glow plus accusative highlighting – case usage determined by context).
