iPad Gospel Library app filtered or selective search

#1

Post by dqek »

I love the iPad app but find searching a bit painful.

Is there any way to search within a specific volume instead of searching through my entire gospel library when performing a search on the iPad app?

For example, if I want to find a certain phrase, my search results come back and show me any time that phrase has been used anywhere in my library(including ensign articles and lesson manuals from decades earlier).

I believe this functionality exists in the android version. Can I somehow enable this in the iPad app, or will it be included into a future update?

Thank you!

I would like to second this request . . . to be able to limit the scope of a search.

I agree, please consider allowing limiting the scope of searches.

The ability to search in context was added in Gospel Library 5.4.0 for iOS. If you navigate to where you want to search, then open the search panel and start typing, the first search suggestion will allow you to search in the context of the book or section you're in.
