Search Fields List

Search fields are portions of the text that have a specific significance and are searchable e.g. Words of Christ, Bible Text, Heading Text. They can be searched using the syntax fieldname:searchitem or [field fieldname1, fieldname2,...] searchitem. For instance, heading:compassion or [field heading] compassion will search for titles and headings that have the word “compassion” in them. Of course, not all fields are available on every resource, and most resources just support the surface and footnote fields. You can check which fields are supported for a particular resource by looking in the resource’s Information panel. Similarly, in the Search Panel, almost all search fields can be accessed on the drop-down menu that normally read ‘All text’ or ‘All Bible text’ under ‘Search Fields’.

Note that the name which appears in the Information panel and in the drop down in the Search panel oftentimes does not correspond to the name of the search field when manually typed. In the table below, both forms are available, with the table organized alphabetically according to the name in the Information panel.
