I am trying to find all the 1st person verbs in the Hebrew text of Psalms, using .*@v??1* as suggested in Classroom Tips 1.15, but I get an error message: "There is no such reference in the current version." What am I doing wrong?

Is your version the WTM? If not, it won't work.

Yes, I am using the WTM because that is the version the example in Classroom Tips 1.15 uses.

What's your other info? Windows version, BW 7 (presumably), but what .exe? 70.019j?

That's what I have on Windows XP, and the search runs for me.

Do other morphology searches (like, for a 2-nd person verb, or a qal stem, etc.) turn up the same thing?

Do you have any limits set? (Are all the boxes to the left of the command line green?)

if you are copying and pasting the search string it will not work either, try just typing it in.

Thanks very much. I was copying & pasting the search string. When I typed the search in manually, the search worked fine. I wonder: Why don't copying & pasting work?
