Hi ya,


  Acc 11.0.7

  Mac 10.10.4


  When I mouse over a Hebrew word the highlight is just for one element of the word, which seems fine, given other how it appears to work in Hebrew. But if its the left most portion of the word (the end) then the following space is included in the highlight. This does not occur in Greek and seems to be a bug, though minor to be sure.


  Another issue. In Gen 1:12 we have : לְמִינֵ֑הוּ


  This word (for want of a better term) involves three components. Only the right most two highlight on mouseover. The third הוּ  does not even though mouse over does produce ID content for it. Is this a bug ? It seems to happen for all such suffixes so may be intentional though I don't quite understand why.

I had never used mouseover highlighting, but this prompted me to check it out and observe the various idiosyncrasies alone with you.


Regarding the second issue: In addition to pronominal suffixes, this is true for the directional hey.  (The prefixed article, vav, and prepositions do highlight + ID but don’t cross-highlight in translation even when there are clear English equivalents.)


Regarding the first: The highlight also includes the sof pasuq with the last word of the verse, which is odd. Equally odd (and equally inconsequential), the English mouseovers (I’m looking at ESV) inconsistently include the space before the word. But as you said, the Greek seems cleaner.
