It is not a bug. What is your search version? If it is WTT, BW is designed to look up every instance of the spelling you type on the command line. Even in WTM a search on a certain spelling will show all homonyms. This is very common. If you search for a certain triliteral stem, your results will includes cognate nouns, verbs, adjectives, or whatever, as long as a lexicon spells the lemma the same.

In general, after you type the Hebrew stem you want on the command line (with WTM as the search version) type @, and BibleWorks will suggest possible ways to limit your search. Choose the options you want to search, or use wildcards if the options don't matter to you.

Thanks, Mark. That does work when I type that code into the search line. What I was trying to do was to do the same search by right-clicking over certain words and choosing "search for all forms of lemma". I was hoping that would do the same thing, but in this case it doesn't appear to.
Dale, when you place your cursor over "enemy" (Heb.) in Gen 22:17, you are seeing a Hebrew showing there? Mine is definitely blank, execpt for the parsing information written in English. There is definitely a difference, but I am almost certain that I have not changed any settings. This is a fairly recent installation.
