I want to find "Excursus: Immanuel", which is referred in Isa 7, in WBC.
However, finally, I could not find the Excursus.
How to find it?

There are two ways:

1. Enter Excursus * Immanuel and search the Title field (the asterisk takes the place of the colon), or use the <AND> to find both words in the same title. If you find and select the phrase Excursus: Immanuel and click the Search button, Accordance automatically replaces the punctuation with the asterisk.
2. Drill down in the browser in the area of Isaiah 7, and you will find the Excursus under The Sign: “Within Three Years”. Click the article title to jump the text to that article.

Regarding the first explanation:
I tried, but only one result was found as below.

Does it mean that there is no Excursus about "Immanuel"?

Regardng the second explanation:
As you see below picture, The Sign: “Within Three Years” appears at the pane, and it is not hyper-linked.
I do not understand what you explained, "Click the article title to jump the text to that article".

As you may imagine, this work was extremely difficult to prepare for Accordance, with its complex and varied structure.

Looking at the printed text, each excursus in this section has a bibliography before the discussion itself. There are in fact five excursi on this one verse: Is 7:14:

Excursus: “The ‘Almah” (‏העלמה‎) (7:14)
Excursus: Immanuel (‏עמנו אל‎) (7:14)
Excursus: Isaiah 7:14 in Context
Excursus: Isaiah 7:14 as Messianic Prophecy
Excursus: Isaiah 7:14 and the Virgin Birth of Jesus

All are present and complete in the module, they are just a little hard to distinguish in the text and in the browser because of the mixed font used.

You need to open the Browser on the left of the pane to see the articles and go to them. Again, this is a massive and complex tool, and you will not find things by scrolling through the text, you will just get lost. The Browser gives you the structure of the book. Option-click on a triangle opens the sections all the way down to your current article at the top of the pane.
