There is probably a really simple solution to this that I am overlooking, but I can't seem to figure out how to search for a root with a certain prefix. For example, how would I search for every word in the NT from the root erchomai when the prefix epi is attached to it?

You can simoply search for both roots connected by the @ sign:

Thanks, Helen! I knew it had to be something simple like that. I'm looking forward to the version 7 manual where these new kinds of searches are explored in greater detail!

How would this work in Hebrew? I'm trying, for example, to find weyiqtol forms, and although [verb imperfect]‏ ‎<WITHIN 1 Words><PRECEDED BY>‏ "ו" does return the correct verses, it also returns imperfect verbs preceded by a word with a suffixed waw -- not just imperfects prefixed with waw. I've tried various combinations with the plus sign but can't seem to get it working.

Many thanks,
Elizabeth

Hebrew is different from Greek because the prefix and suffix are treated as separate words so you cannot use the @ to join them to the main word.

Try specifying the grammatical tag of the waw as a conjunction:
‏ ‎[VERB imperfect]‏ ‎<WITHIN 1 Words>‏ ‎<PRECEDED BY>‏ ו@ ‎[PARTICLE conjunction]‏
or not a suffix:
‏ ‎[VERB imperfect]‏ ‎<WITHIN 1 Words>‏ ‎<PRECEDED BY>‏ ו@-‎[SUFFIX]‏

Thank you, Helen! That did the trick.
