Search Fields List

Updated for Logos 10+

Search fields are portions of a book’s 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
For instance, heading:compassion or heading/largetext:compassion will search for titles and headings that have the word “compassion” in them.
Some fieldnames may require the field. modifier to be properly recognised e.g. (to distinguish from the datatype). Also, don’t confuse them with the fields you can use in Library to search the external metadata e.g. mytag, myrating.

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’.

The table below is organized alphabetically according to the Name in the book’s Information panel. The name which you use for the field definition in a Personal Book is the Search Field name (case sensitive) whilst the Search Alias name is used in a Search query (case insensitive).

 —> denotes a possibly alternative Field that is not well documented
