How can we search revia` mugrash, a double accent in the eme"t (psalms, proverbs, Job).

I have set up a search field limited to those three books within the Hebrew Bible.
How do I search for examples of revia` mugrash?

Not sure why you call it a double character. It seems to be at shift-option-2. You can search for it, or any ta'am or any character at all, with a period followed by the character. You can use a space before the period in order to see the character if the overstrike is long. I get 658 hits in Job starting with 3:3. Is this what you mean?

A correction: ‏רביע מגרשׁ is shift-option-q (not -2). All the accents can be graphically chosen from the Character Palette under the Window menu; set to Yehudit, it's on the third line, next to the graphically identical geresh.

For clarification: GKC 15h explains the composite nature of this accent (‏רביע and ‏גרשׁ on the same "word").

I get 2964 hits in ‏תא׳׳ם.
