Is is possible to list all 3:16 verses of the whole Bible with a single search command?

3:16 can be any other verse ofcourse....:p

You could create a custom limits list that includes only 3:16 refs: gen 3:16; exo 3:16, etc.
then search for .*
That would list all the references in the command center. The custom limits list would also let you do any search on those references you would want.

Strangely enough .* doesn't work but *? does....

Altough it works it's to hard to use because I have to change the whole filter if I have to search for another verse.

Several items of which you might not be aware:
1. The command line is saved, so if you entered it on the commandline, you can arrow-up/down to recall it and even copy it.
2. You can save custom limits lists:
Search > Set Search Limits ...
Choose "Limit the search using custom search range"
Type in a description (make is short and simple for easy recall, like "3.16")
Enter the list of 3:16 references.
Click the Add button
Now that is it saved, you can "call" it from the command line by typing "l 3.16"
the "l" stands for limits.

And likely the saved custom limits is a txt file which you should be able to open and do a find-and-replace on '3:16'.
