    Question How to search for numerals

    How can one search for numerals in English? For example,
    .140000


    on the command line brings up 144000 in a list of choices of numbers beginning with 144, but it doesn't display the verse(s) that included it, either after the pressing <enter> to do the search or even by double-clicking the choice in the window. I take it's the comma in the formatted number that does it, because 300 will display but not 3,000, and so forth. Of course, this means that BibleWorks can search for the evil number 666 but not the righteous number 144,000 ;-)

    Default Period search is correct, but BW appears to be broken

    Hi, Dale,

    There appears to be a problem with numeral searching. I can search for .144000 in the CSB and find the three refs in Rev. But the same search doesn't work in the NIV or any other English version for that matter.

    Will report this and see what comes of it.

    I didn't try it on CSB, but was using NAU, NIV, ESV to try it. Interesting to see that it does work on something. Thanks for reporting it.
