Would it be possible to limit the Merge to only include verses that match the displayed portion of the verse when "show text as" is set to "Add Titles?"
There are many times where I would like to find specific instances specific Hebrew word is translated by a specific Greek word. However, the LXX-MT module does not permit this. The closest I can get is a search for a Greek word in one window and a search for a Hebrew word in another combined with the merged results of the first window. This works OK when the likelihood of two other Hebrew words translated by the same Greek word/ or other Greek words translated by the same Hebrew word will likely not appear in the same verse. However, when the words chosen are common and it is very likely that they both may appear in the same verse but are not related to each other, you then get many false positives.
For example, searching for occurrences where מן is translated by ἐπὶ is very difficult because ἐπὶ is also translated by על, אל, ל, ב, etc... these are all very common and occur quite frequently in verse that also contain מן. When the results are merged together, verses that had matches in both prior searches list all matches found in the verse even though they are not found as translation matches.
If the Merge function could be limited to match only against the displayed portion of the text in the other LXX-MT window rather than any occurrence in the entire verse, then this search could be accomplished by setting the "show text as" to "Add Titles" (as was done in my example). This would greatly enhance the power of the LXX-MT module!
