Hi, i feel like an idiot for asking this and i'm sure i'm missing something simple but technology has never been my strong suit so here goes:

If I'm searching for all occurrences of a particular verb ABC in the qal perfect form, I type the following in the WTM command box:

".ABC"

then I want to continue to type...

".ABC@vqp*"

BUT when I try to type in @, instead of a drop down menu, I get peh instead.

Can someone help me pls? Thanks.

Make sure WTM is search version.
I type ".abc[END]@"
On the command line it looks like this ".#ba@"

A BW staff could only find this documentation:

Thank you for your message. Please note the top of page 15 in the BibleWorks 8 Quick-Start Guide as it addresses searching a mophology verison.:

"When searching Hebrew, you must first type the lemma and then manually move the cursor to the right of the lemma to enter the @ sign."

A cursory search of the BibleWorks Help in the places I would expect to find it did not lead me to further mention, I will look into the matter further and suggest that we update the Help file where necessary.

Sincerely,
Mark
