I'm looking for two searching features which would improve my accordance study experience. I use Accordance daily over the last several years. It is never idle. I know that these feature requests can be accomplished right now by a variety of tools and methods, but I'm suggesting a more simple approach to these common tasks that I find myself repeating over and over again.
1. Often I search a particular chapter(s) "Genesis 5-8" or "Romans 8" etc. or a Greek or English word. The results of the search are displayed. However, there is no simple way to search within that results of that search without defining a range or creating a complex search command. It would be helpful to allow a quick "search within results" feature. This could be complex, I'm sure, but helpful even if the search results represent a word. Could the "search all" field could utilized for this to search all modules or "search results"? It may even already exist, as I'm constantly learning about Accordance as I use it. If that is the case, I apologize for the question in this forum.
2. I always wish that the search word that I pick in one text panel would be highlighted in companion or parallel texts. I can mouse over the "search highlighted" word and see it translated in other texts, but it would be a nice feature (turn on or off) to see the search word as it is translated or even represented in Greek or Hebrew by a highlighted result in all the parallel texts. Searching, for example "Lamech" in Gen 5 would highlight in read "Lamech" in red in five verses in all linked panels, including any linked hebrew text. Is such a thing possible?
Thank you for your on-going work on this wonderful and vital tool for the ministry!
