Tell me if I am correct:  If I am in word and Flex search mode and enter the following in the search box:  love <AND> peace. Accordance will search as an Exact search and not flex because I am using commands. Right?

No, you can still run a flex search with commands, and it should work.

Then, because I am using an <AND> command it will only find "loved" if there is the word peace too?

Ok. I got it… Yes, I saw it, you can use commands and search using flex. 

 

I didn't get loved because there weren't any loved AND peace. But when I did love <OR> peace I also got loved as results. 

 

really cool.

 

Thanks.

Well, I suppose it could vary by translation, but I just ran it in the HCSB, and the only variation on love was loved. But I had a total of 35 flex hits.
