    Question WTM Accent Searching issue in the GSE

    The following WTM Graphic Search Engine search
    *@*Z5* *@*Z5* (between 0 and 30 words part)
    picks up the occurrence of two Atanch in one verse in:
    Genesis 35:22 &
    1 Chronicles 10:1

    But, misses the double Atanch phenomenon in:
    Exodus 20:2 and Exodus 20:5

    Does anyone have any idea on why the above query misses both 20:2 and 20:5?

    I got the same results you did, running the query from the command line.
    Try *@*Z*5*R* instead of *@*Z5*
    Some lemmas have more than one accent coded in WTM.
    The verses you missed had one or both of the "5"s preceded by another code.
    Running this search from the command line gave me Deu 5:9, Deu 5:14 as well as the 4 you mention.
    (Also 2Ki 23:10, but one is Qere and one is Kethib)

    The above is exactly what I needed.

    Yeah, this query found a few examples the first query initially missed. I was able to get it to pick up 6 examples rather than 7.
    Here is a screen shot of my current Graphic Search Engine query:
