    Default Another search question

    A group of us wanted to find every present tense verb in Mark, any mood, any person, any voice, but l Mark (limit Mk), then .*@v-p* won't do it. What's the mistake? Tried BW6 and BW7.

    Thanks, Ingo

    P.S. A big package from BW arrived today; my kids even called me! "Package from Bibleworks, package from Bibleworks!" But alas, just brochures . . .

    I'm away from BW at the moment (and the greek morph codes a tad fuzzy...), but I think you want .*@v?p*

    I thought so too but the ? is not an option in the list of choices (in the morph aid), nor will the command line take a ? at that point.

    Now, if we had "BW portable" on our cell phones or Ipods . . . never mind.

    Hit Escape, and then type the ?

    Thanks, that worked!

    Is that Esc trick a work-around or supposed to work that way? Seems to be an odd extra to command line search writing.

    It appears in one of the tip boxes that you probably saw once and then turned off.

    It's also (i believe) in the Help File under the chapter on Shortcuts.
