Hello

 

In non unicode Texts I can write two words and Accordance searches for the two word in the verse.

E.g. Himmel Erde

In unicode Bibles if I write two words it find it only the the words if they are together.  Otherwise I have to add the <AND> command. 

 

With no words together

I can handle it. I simply found the search difference.

A text with the words together.

 

Just curious: "Himmel" and "Erde" are separated by a comma in your screenshot.  Does that count as "together" in Accordance, or is the comma actually separating them?

 

I appreciate you pointing out the "different search habits."  I think the underlying message in your statement--"I can handle it"--is that you would prefer to have one consistent, uniform way of doing things.  If that is so, I would like to echo my preference for one consistent, uniform way of searching (where possible).

 

And if I've totally stuffed words in your mouth that you never intended, then... I'd *still* like to voice my preference for one consistent, uniform way of searching :)

In this case Accordance didn't recognize the comma.

 

Yes consistent is easier to handle for all. 

 

You nailed it exactly :)

 

If I'm correct the search habit without you have to add <AND> came with Accordance 10. But I mostly use MacOS Roman fonts. Since I have added some Qurans which are in unicode, because they have some transliterations in which has no equivalencies to MacOS Roman characters I realized there are different search habits.
