Thread: How Do You Do That???

  1. #1

    Default How Do You Do That???

    I am wanting to find all the Perfect Tense Verbs in a certain chapter.

    I set my Search Parameters to SCM and Limits to Rev 6.
    I then type in .*@vix*.
    It doesn't like what I am asking...

    therefore I must be doing something wrong!

    Any suggestions?

    If you have your limits set to Rev 6 there are no matches in that chapter for your criteria. IOW, there are no VIX in Revelation 6 in SCM.

    At first I thought, "Doh!" Then I went back and searched the whole NT. It still balks.

    The weird thing is when I type ".*@vix*" I actually get ".;@vix*". This is why I think I am doing something wrong.

    If I set SCM as my search version and search the whole NT with --

    .*@vix*

    I get 731 verses with 277 forms as my search result. IOW, everything works fine.

    The following attachment is a Screen Capture.

    As I mentioned, when I type ".*@vix*" I actually get ".;@vix*".

    Why do you have a period AND a semi-colon? You can't do that. Remove the semi-colon, or remove the period. You can't have both.

    You also need the asterisk BEFORE the @. IOW, you search should look EXACTLY like this --

    .*@vix*

    Take a look at my previous posts please.

    Whenever I type * [SHIFT-8], it always gives me that ";" at that one location. Why? I donot know. I was thinking I had been doing something wrong, because it gives me * after the @.

    You didn't say that it was automatically putting in the semi-colon. If that's the case, then it's a problem specific to your system because it doesn't happen on any of my computers.

    Either way, as I said before, you can NOT have BOTH the period AND the semi-colon. Get rid of one of them, and also put the asterisk BEFORE the @ sign, which you did NOT do in your example.

    Default Accent-sensitive searching is on

    The problem with the search is that you have accent-sensitive searching turned on. If you look at the 5 boxes immediately below the Command Line, you see that the 3rd box is yellow. This is an indicator that the accent-sensitive searching is turned on. You can place your cursor on that box to see the options that are set.

    To turn off the accent-sensitive search, right-click within the Command Line and uncheck the Accent-Sensitive Searching (Greek) option toward the bottom of the list.
