Accordance 6.8 - Mac OS X

If I enter "phil" in the search window and hit enter, it presents me with the text for Philippians. However, I want Philemon. I'm just smart enough to know the difference, and how to get what I want, but shouldn't a verse search for "phil" fail because it's ambigious?

This was an exception made for convenience. Normally an ambiguous reference does fail, but this seemed like a common abbreviation for Philippians. Sorry for the confusion. Try Phile or Phlm.
