    1. Using a Win 10 PC, when I do a Bible or Basic search the results properly include highlights of the search matches; however, those highlights are a pale red color that is so week they can be hard to find. How can I change the highlight to be something more visible. It would be ideal to be able to set the highlight for each search so that I could chose something that contrast with any existing highlighting.
      1. I’m afraid we don’t have any mechanism to change the highlighting colours used in Search results
    2. Working in Hebrew, how can I identify the occurrences of exact phrases within the Torah?

        I'll ask and answer my own question, in hopes that someone else will benefit from it. Do any modern Bible translations translate εἴδους in 1 Thess. 5:22 as "appearance" rather than "form" or "kind"? Manually looking at each translation would be tedious, even using the Text Comparison tool. Instead a milestone Basic search in all resources that are type:bible will quickly yield the answer. appearance INTERSECTS {Milestone <1 Th 5:22>} But this search returns places that mention it in the footnotes. What if I want to find only those that include it in the verse text itself? surface:appearance INTERSECTS {Milestone <1 Th 5:22>} Or to find only the translations that include it in a footnote: footnote:appearance INTERSECTS {Milestone <1 Th 5:22>} Group "By Resource" to see the list. It looks like the Modern English Version and the Passion Translation are the only two recently published Bibles that translate it "appearance." And only NASB includes it in a footnote.
        1. The Translation section of the Information tool can also be used to show how all of your Bibles translate a particular word.
        2. It looks like an viable translation of the word, just not as precise to the context here as in 2 Cor. 5:7 and Luke 3:22.

          >The Translation section of the Information tool can also be used to show how all of your Bibles translate a particular word. Well, all of the ones that have word numbers (i.e., morph-tagged original language texts or translations with reverse-interlinear alignments).
      2. how to create a journal? New to Logos.
        1. Hi , could you elaborate on what you'd like to do? Are you after a devotional journal, a prayer journal, or something else? My initial thought is that you'll want to use the Notes tool (create a dedicated Notebook), but without further clarification, I'm not sure.
      3. Good Morning. Would anyone happen to know how to find the number of imperatives/commands in a NT text. I am trying to find out the number of imperatives/commands in 1 Thessalonians. Thanks so much!
        1. , here are the steps to run this search: 1. Open the Search panel by clicking the Search icon in the Go Box. 2. Switch to the Morph tab. 3. Change to 1 Thessalonians. 4. Choose your preferred Greek New Testament or English Bible with Greek alignment. 5. Type @v??m into the search box to select all imperatives verbs. Let me know if you need any more help.
        2. Try {Label Command WHERE Type ~ "Request"} or {Label Command}. The "Commands in the Bible Dataset Documentation" has more information.
      4. Finding all the instances where Jesus was worshipped can be done with a clause search: experiencer:Jesus verb:worship I'm curious, can the same search be done in another way with another search for example?
        1. Using both "indirect-object:Jesus verb:worship" and "object:Jesus verb:worship" will find the same results - some with Jesus as the object of the verb and others with him as the indirect object.
        2. Thanks

        Certainly appreciate all the help freely given in this group! When I go to a ref. , do a lemma search for "this resource" in the current Bible, the software puts into the search bar something like: <Lemma = lls/el/ἐκκλησία> WITHIN 2 words <Lemma = lls/el/θεός> <Lemma = lbs/el/χάρις> WITHIN 3 words <Lemma = lbs/el/θεός> What do "lls, el, lbs, or in an old Testament search I saw he) mean?
        1. lls / lbs are the morphology databases (gramcord and logos morphology) el is Greek he is Hebrew MJ Smith discusses this at https://community.logos.com/forums/t/121459.aspx and there is a listing of morphology codes at https://wiki.logos.com/List_of_Datatypes#Morphology_datatypes
        2. Thanx for your time; much appreciated!

        Hello. I am trying to search for instances in the Bible where God speaks of himself as "us", "our" or "we" in KJV. I want to find instances where the words "us", "our" or "we" refer back to God. I tried writing a Bible search with the following parameters: {Speaker <Person God>} INTERSECT us. But it didn't give satisfying results. Thankful for any advice or help.
        1. I wondered about that; the prophet speaking for God. I did not expand... thanx. So am I back to manually sorting out when God is talking about Himself?
        2. Thanx for your help. This gets us quit close, and I think some of the next level is subject to some interpretation.
        3. Thank you for your help. I think the following works pretty good: {Speaker <Person God>} INTERSECTS ((we, us, our) INTERSECTS <Person God>) AND NOT "our God"
      7. How do I eliminate a duplicate response (text appears twice) when searching in Bible or Basic mode?
        1. Can you give an example of what you are seeing?
