Some searches takes a long time due to their features (i.e. complexity, expansiveness, etc.). Is it possible to perform a search only on the text that is designated in the search limits option box? Note, I am not refering to merely limiting the results to the specified text. Rather, I am refering to limiting the actual performance of the search to the specified text. I am assuming that this would shorten the amount of time it took to perform the search.

E.g. in trying to compare the total # of words in specific synoptic pericopes (BGM <*.*>, with limits specified) the search appears to count every word in the version and then limit the results to only the specified text. While it would probably be quicker to manually count the words, I trust BW counting over my own.

You cannot do this from the Command Line, but I believe the Advanced Search Engine can do this, though I may be wrong. For complex searches the ASE is noticeably faster than the Command Line.

SAW: thanks, that works much quicker.
