How can I run a search that will show me only the verses that differ between two very similar texts, such as the HMT-W4 and BHS-W4 or ETCBC?  

 

I need something more than just ticking the "compare" option since the differences are so few.

 

I'm pretty sure I've seen in the past how to do this, but now I cannot find it.

 

 

Thank you

Wow! So easy and I have the exact results I was looking for — and it only took a couple of seconds!

 

Thank you for your help!

Thanks OSchrock for the question and Dr. J for the solution. I now know how to very simply compare two texts. This is a great feature that I did not know about, or had forgotten.

Sorry to come back to this, but is there any way to adjust the text comparison to ignore the "Movable Nu" and punctuation marks?

Ok, thanks. Switching the compare option from "words" to "lexical form" does seem to clear up the movable nu but seems goes beyond that to other changes as well.  That does get the information I needed though, so thank you!
