Objective

 Logos provides a way for locating documents that you have created. This wiki will describe how to do this using the Search tool. In the Search tool you may have noticed a blue heading bar named My Content. The My Content bar is where Logos lists your documents in which it found hits for your search term. Your documents may be of any type that are found under the File menu (e.g. Clippings, Notes, Visual Filters, etc).

 After a while you may find that you have numerous documents which appear under the right side of the File drop down menu. And at times you may wish to locate document(s) in which you referred to a scripture reference or a word. Then this use of Search is a great way to locate those documents. This wiki shows you two ways to search for those documents: by word or by scripture reference. Just follow the examples below.
