 Logos provides a way for locating text in documents that you have created. This wiki will describe how to do this using the Your Documents option in the Search tool. Your documents can be any type that is found under the Documents menu e.g. Clippings, Notes, Visual Filters.

 You may have numerous documents and you may wish to locate document(s) in which you referred to a word or created a Tag. This wiki shows you how to search for those documents.

Finding a word in your documents

Open the Search tool.

  1. Set the search type to Basic.
  2. Set the search text type to All Text.
  3. Set the search IN location to Your Documents.
  4. In the Find box type the word. Then press the Enter key or click the blue arrow on the right side of the Find box to start your search.
  5. If Logos found hits for your search term they will be shown under Your Documents.
    Some can be expanded to see the hit, whilst others have to be clicked to open the document for manual inspection.

Finding Tags in your documents

Most documents will allow you to Add a Tag but you may not know how to restrict your search results to Tags. We will search for the same word as above but click All Text and select My Tag before starting the search.

  • The hit is expanded to show a link to the part of the document that has the tag.

Finding Bible Verses in your documents

You can use the same Search as above but type a passage in the Find box

  • The hit in the Clipping was in the Bibliography. It would be highlighted if it was in the text.
    It will not be found in a Tag unless you search for the string e.g. “Dt 6:4-7”.
  • You can also use Passage Guide to search your documents.
