I noticed the parentheses surrounding the words "the prophets" and "the seers" in ESV 29:10, and was curious how often ESV uses parentheses. But I'm running into trouble searching for either '(' or ')' because Accordance seems to assume the parentheses are part of search argument / constructs. Is there a way to search for the literal characters ( or ) ?

To do a character search, simply precede the character with a period. E.g.: .(

Thanks Joel. You'd think I'd know that...

Here's a (probably) crazy idea. What about adding a third way to search in addition to Verses and Words, where REGEX can receive pcre arguments? I always love the idea of being able to use skills / knowledge in multiple contexts. REGEX in Accordance might make instant power users out of **some** Accordance newbies.
