I have posted a question here before with regards to looking for proper names in a particular book and I was introduced to command lines like these:

.*@n???p*
for any proper noun

.*@n?f?p*
for any feminine proper noun

I have been spending the past hour trying to figure out the framework of the command line - i.e. what the placing of the 9 characters represent - but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Please help? Thanks!

For the searches you describe:
.*@n???p*
for any proper noun

.*@n?f?p*
for any feminine proper nounyou need to be using either the BGM or the BNM versions. If you start typing those codes, once you get past the @, there will be a popup showing what each indicates.

Also see the online help, chapter 18a, Greek and Hebrew Morphological Searches (Help/Online Help Content..) or the videos (Help/Study Guides/Searching the Greek and Hebrew Text) for this specific aspect.
Or you can put the cursor focus on the command line and hit F1 and the help file with examples will pop up.
