I get inconsistent results from the use of NOT in the Hebrew construct window, mostly including results that have the element marked by NOT.
For example, searching the Qal of ידע followed by את followed by אשׁר followed by [verb].
I have WITHIN 3 words between the first 2 columns and WITHIN 4 words between the 2nd and 4th columns.
I run the search with and without NOT on the 3rd column with אשׁר.
But some verses show up in both searches. The only difference is that when using NOT the אשׁר does not light up in the results, while it does when the search is done without the NOT.
Clearly the program sees it, but why doesn't it screen these results out?
The attached screen shots show Gen 9:24 in both results.

Perhaps I'm setting it up wrong, but have often had this sort of thing.
Another example searches the Qal of ידע followed by כי followed by [verb] WITHIN 4 (from 1st to 3rd column).

Gen 8:11 and 15:8 (etc.) should not show up.
Thanks for any help.
