New in Verbum 6: Inline Search

The inline search tool integrates the power of Verbum searches with the convenience of the “find” function.

See how this search works, and imagine how it can change the way you use Verbum.

Inline Search is available in all* Verbum libraries.

*EDIT: While the Inline Search function is available in all libraries, advanced searching capabilities are still powered by special datasets (and reverse interlinears). These may not be available in the lower libraries. Reverse interlinears (which power original language searches like “<Lemma = lbs/el/λόγος>”) are not included in Verbum Basic. You must have Foundation or higher. To access searches like “<Person Jesus>,” you need the “Biblical Referents Dataset” which is available in Scripture Study and above.

  • I have Verbum Verbum 6.0b Beta 4 ( on my Mac (OS X 10.10.1) with the Foundation library, and I am unable to use even the simple inline search. For example, I am in the NABRE, and when I type “Jesus” (no quotes) in the inline search box and hit Enter, it gives me zero results. How can I go about troubleshooting this?

  • I have the Verbum 6.0a

    Your video about inline search is great, however, the inline search icon at the top of the resource panel, does not appear on my resource panel, as depicted in the video.

    How do you find the inline search icon ?

    Appreciate any suggestions you may have.

  • I have Verbum 6.0a on Windows 7 laptop. When I do an inline search for (following the example in the Video), I get 0 results. I have Verbum Scripture Study Library. I appreciate you help on this.

    • Joe,

      I hope I can help! I will need a little more info, though, about which example you were following. Some of the specific functions require advanced datasets so, for example, if you run the “Person Jesus” search in the NABRE, you will get 0 results because we haven’t aligned a reverse interlinear with that translation, yet.

      If you’ve got Scripture Study, then it shouldn’t be a problem, but some functions will not be available in lower libraries. I should have made that more clear. I will add a note to the post.
