Bring back Topic Search and Fuzzy Search
Bring back Logos 3's Topic Browser and Fuzzy Search capabilities
The LDLS3 Topic Browser has been replaced by the Factbook and Topic Guide.
An improved version of LDLS3 Fuzzy Search for Bibles is available as Fuzzy Bible Search (in Everything Search in Logos Now): https://community.logos.com/forums/t/132569.aspx

It would be nice if Fuzzy Search had spelling correction ability like Google.
MJ Smith commented
Fuzzy search is still a no show despite recent comments that it was a matter or priorities rather than intention. The Topic Search is improved in some areas but woefully still unsupported in others as shown trying to duplicate a blog post of John Owen.
"Embed in Logos program's Boolean "Fuzzy Search" with the internet's Google Search large staff of doctorates. Let the Google Cloud handle the "heavy lifting" expensive capital costs of intelligent search when the Logos user is connected to the internet."
This one little thing alone would stop me from every using Logos again because of the amount of data mining Google does and sells to third parties without anyone knowing it. If you do not believe it check your phones that have google maps on there and look at what you have to give them permission to take off your phone in order to use it. This is just one example, there are many many more.

Attn: Logos Support Bob,
Embed in Logos program's Boolean "Fuzzy Search" with the internet's Google Search large staff of doctorates. Let the Google Cloud handle the "heavy lifting" expensive capital costs of intelligent search when the Logos user is connected to the internet.
Logos Cloud Search in Google Search in both Mac/PC and ios9 mobile devices when connected to the internet.
Copyright issues may limit to those resources already freely on the internet (Biblia etc.) to Google Cloud servers "Fuzzy Search."
Maybe have a check box or preference to include resources only on Customers' accounts and optional to include non purchased resources.
Google is a truly great "fuzzy search" resource Jesus and Logos.com should fully exploit to help understanding of God's WORD.

Any progress Bob? It has been more then 4 years since you said fuzzy search would come back.

Please bring back all that wonderful tools that has been removed. No new ones, but the same ones. Also develop new ones without removing the old ones. Or let's talk about improving the old ones without removing them.
Any progress on this?
David Taylor commented
Is there an update on this?
Anything that would make this wonderful product more "User Friendly" would be wonderful that making it easier for us and more marketable for Logos!
I realize fuzzy search is coming "some day" but once again I implore the leaders of Logos Bible Software to bring Fuzzy Search back. It is a wonderful tool that cannot be forgotten and Logos 5 just isn't complete without it.
James Watts commented
Reference Browser was what makes Libronix such a powerful research tool. I will stick with Libronix until Logos 4 has the same capability.

Wonder about adding TOC search field ? so can search for words appearing in the Table of Contents in all resources. Alternative is modifying Heading text field to always include Table of Contents.
Ron Corbett commented
If we could also get TOPIC searches to work with searches that are restricted to any subsets of our ENTIRE LIBRARY : ie- collections ... that would be GREAT!!!
Ted Hans commented
Yes please to topic search & fuzzy search V3 style
Frank Harford commented
I am ecstatic (if that is how you spell it) to topic search and Fuzzy Search is now "Planned" that is wonderful!
Ryan Hawn commented
Would love to see a Fuzzy Search... sure would beat using Google...
This isn't an old forgotten tool like some might have you think either! I had to use it twice this morning preparing my sermon. and sadly that meant going out of L4, finding and opening Libronix, waiting for it to open up, clearing the screen, opening Fuzzy Search and finding the verses. Please Logos I realize you have a tough job getting PBB prepared, working on others addins. But this isn't just something we can do without!
I definitely like to see these search functions added. There are many times I am trying to find a verse, but I cannot remember how it goes EXACTLY. So both of these search functions would be MUCH appreciated. It would make find verses so much easier and even faster than ever!
