Searching a set of tools

Q

How can I find all references to a topic or verse in a number of tools (such as the Journals or Church Fathers)?

A

Create a Tool set (and/or a Search All Group) with these tools. Then you can amplify to it from a word or phrase to find that topic in all these tools, or click in a verse reference in a Bible text and amplify to the Tool set to find all references including that verse.

In Tool sets you must remember that Accordance searches the relevant fields in order, so if it finds titles containing your search word, it does not search the contents, but if it finds no titles it searches the contents and gets more but less important hits. The search All searches and displays the results for all the fields in the tools.
