The Book Search View gives you the power to search the entire remainder of your module library, the non-Bible modules. The color code for this View is purple. A new Book Search View can be made by simply pressing the shortcut f9. The Book Search View functions very similarly to the Bible Search View, however it is somewhat more simple. You may hover over any result in the results tree to see the entire matched topic in a tool tip (the tool tip appears only if you hover your mouse exactly over the text of the topic: moving your mouse on the white space area of the results list allows you to navigate without seeing any popups).

Choosing Modules to Search
The Book search view allows you to search more than one modules at a time. The dialog to choose which book modules to search can be found at the down arrow to the immediate left of the search input box.
Module Selection Menu(s)
From these menus you may select exactly which modules you would like to search based upon the terms you type in the search term input box. By default, the View will search the currently active module only.
Select manually the modules to search... will display another menu to allow you to check the modules you would like to search. See below.
Manual Module Selection Menu
In this menu, simply check the modules that you would like to search for this particular instance. The modules can be grouped by type, alphabetically, or without grouping. You can also save module sets from this menu as well. Once done, press OK.
Back in the Modules Selection Menu, you may also search All modules, All modules in active Book View, or a particular module set.
Creating subsets/collections of your library for effective searching
When your library starts to grow, it makes sense to start organizing your Books in modules based on a specific category (e.g. Theology, Apologetics, etc). One way to do this is by using the Module Sets functionality that is available from the Book View. All Module Sets that you have defined there are also available as collections when you want to limit your searching to a sub-set of your library.
The Book search view allows you to create extra Search Sets that are only used for searching: these are the sets created from the Select manually the modules to search... dialog. These sets, although quite similar in concept to the Module Sets, they are used exclusively for the Book Search view.

The Auto-expand Nodes icon will automatically expand all notes in the results tree.
Navigating through the search results
Once you click on an entry in the search results list, a Book view will display the corresponding topic. The search phrase/word will appear in the Book view with a red curly underline and yellow background. If the topic contains more than one instances of the phrase/word, all of them will be highlighted. To navigate through these you can use the Locate the next search match icon () on the Book view toolbar. Alternatively, you can use the following keyboard shortcuts of the Book view:
