I know that there is probably a very simple answer to this, but I don't have a clue to what it is. When I search for "dabid" in the GNT-TR, I get no hits. Obviously it is in there, is this because it is an alternate spelling of "dauid"? or something else?

Also, have no clue how to get a Greek font here.

I added a screenshot if it helps.

It looks like it is because the "root" of DABID is considered by Accordance to be DAUID. (To see for yourself, mouse over DABID in the text and check out the root listed in the Instant Details box--if you have it set to show the root). Maybe it is this way to allow the various Greek texts to interact? (e.g. I can select DAUID in GNT-T and amplify to GNT-TR, presumably because of the "root" mapping).

Here are two solutions I've found:
1) put DABID in quotes; this searches for the inflected form
2) search for DAUID.

The quotes worked, thanks. But, wouldn't "=" do the same thing? I know that quotes inclose an inflected form while the equals sign searches for the exact word accents and all. I tried "=DABID" with the capital "D" and the grave accent above the iota and it still came up with no results? I guess the bottom line is it works. Thanks.
