    Hit = count of occurrences

    Request an option be added to the preferences to define a “hit” as the count of occurrences that match a search’s criteria. The number of hits to a search (in my opinion) should be the number of finds/occurrences that meet the search criteria. Accordance does this when one does a phrase search — i.e., the hit count shows the number of times that phrase appears in a text. Likewise, Accordance does such when one does an OR search (i.e., A <OR> B) returning how many time A or B appears. However, in an AND search (i.e., A <AND> B) Accordance hits count is not the number of times that A and B appear in the scope and range specified, rather it is the sum of the count of the number of times A appears plus the number of times B appears in the search results that contain both A and B. For example — limiting the range to 1 Corinthians, and scope to verse and searching for Faith <AND> Hope and in the ESV Accordance reports 1 verse (1Cor 13:13) and 2 hits— but my opinion there is one hit in that search criteria, not two – as neither word by is self is sufficient to met the criteria. Another example, when one searches the ESV text with range=1Cor, scope=verse for man <AND>Adam, there is only one verse (1Cor 15:45) whose content meets the search criteria. In it “Adam” appears twice and “man” appears once, and while Accordance 13.1.5 reports 3 hits, I would expected 2, as there are 2 sets of Adam and man combinations that match this search’s criteria — not three. I understand that are 3 words in the range and scope that met the part of the criteria, but meeting part of a criteria to me is not a hit. That said, for backward compatibility, I am not requesting the current methodology for computing hits be changed, but rather an other be added to search preference to define a hit either a Accordance does today, OR as the number of times a search criteria is met.

    HITS Command modifiers

    The HITS Command is a powerful thing, allowing for interaction between different searches and a whole lot of other sophisticated inquiries. Part of the fun is the three modifiers: Keys, Inflected, and Tags. But to me there is seems to be missing an important option: roots. I'd love to see Roots added so that I could take all the Roots I found in one search and drop them in another search. Thanks!
  3. I love the Info Pane and the "My Toolset" feature takes it to the next level! I would really appreciate a little number indicating the Hits Count next to the icon of items that appear in the "My Toolset" section. Perhaps I'm the only one who would appreciate this feature, but I think it would be useful to know if I can be content to read the resource in the instant details, or if I should open the resource to read additional hits.
  4. Right now, in a subtle and great way, Accordance indicates whether a search has been performed with greyed out text. If no search was performed it remains black. On an individual, regular search if nothing is found Accordance will notify the user with a pop over. Two things: 1. the pop over indicator that say no hits were found can be annoying - it forces an unnecessary click I think. I wish there was a subtler way of indicating this that didn't require the user to click ok before preceding. 2. when using predetermined search ranges and the link command to perform the same search in multiple ranges simultaneously, there is no way to find out if hits were found without having that particular tab on front and noticing the greyed out or black text.* *I usually set up multiple tabs and set them to predetermined ranges then link them to my search text. For example,from left to right, would be: "Search" "Daniel" "Jeremiah" "Deuteronomy" etc. My search goes to "Search" and then all the others have the Link Command connected to "Search". With this only one tab is visible at a time in the zone. Then in another zone I have analysis, lexicon etc. Could there be a two birds with one stone solution to these? Something in the tab itself (e.g. a color or symbol: "!", "!?", "✓", "⚠︎") that's always visible? Thanks!

    [HITS=i HB]

    Question. Perhaps I'm missing it in the help files, but does HITS inflected forms bring over the exact form, i.e. pointing in Hebrew? I think it does, but I wondering if there is option to switch between exact inflected forms ("xxx=") and just consonants ("xxx")...? For example, an exact inflect form search brings these two: Esth 3:6 יִּ֣בֶז Gen 25:34 יִּ֥בֶז Also, is there a way to find inflected forms by word rather than word segments with the HITS command? Again the example of Esth and Gen above serves well. Esth 3:6 וַיִּ֣בֶז Gen 25:34 וַיִּ֥בֶז Lastly, anyway to automatically search for an exact inflected form? Right now it defaults to non exact - just consonants. Thanks!

    #87) Linking Commands

    Accordance's three linking commands, [LINK], [HITS], and [CONTENTS] temporarily “link” Accordance windows (zones or tabs) together, allowing searches in the source window to affect other windows. These powerful commands allow simultaneous searches, searches within searches, and cascading searches in multiple windows. Join Dr. J ask he reviews these three commands, providing practical applications for each.
  7. I remember few words from my user notes and I want to find that particular note. Therefore I open user notes in the main window and use Search command to find that note. Search results is a long list of my notes where search criteria is highlighted in red, but I still have to scroll through all my notes. If the note I'm looking for is near the end of my notes, it'll be half an hour scrolling… Could you please show only those notes in the search results, which contain hits? And perhaps scripture index along the right edge of the screen to navigate faster to the Gospels or the book of Revelation.
  8. So I'm having some trouble searching and making productive use of the the Bracketed Words search option. The three options currently are: (1) Included, (2) Ignored, and (3) Exclusive. The thing is, unless I'm missing something, this doesn't allow for the user to search the text for a phrase according to the Qere. For example, a well known correction my the Masoretes is in 2 Kgs 18:27 || Isa 36:12, where commander says (according to the Ketiv) "Was it only to your master and you that my master sent me to say these things, and not to the people sitting on the wall—who, like you, will have to eat their own dung (חראיהם) and drink their own urine (שיניהם)?" But the Qere euphemistically uses filth (צואתם) and water of the feet (מימי רגליהם). If I search for ולשתות את שיניהם I get the hit because it is in the Ketiv. But if I search for ולשתות את מימי רגליהם I don't get the hit because it is the Qere. I have tried all three options for the Bracketed Words and none of them seem to allow for searching a phrase according to the Qere. If this is a missing option, I think its an important one to address. When brackets are used in mss to indicate lacunae, that's one thing and this option works fine. But in the BHS text when it indicates variant readings, its important to have the option to search in either reading. Thanks!

    Comparing Vocabulary

    Recently a member on a fb page I frequent posed the following question, "What words appear in Mark, but not the other two Synoptic Gospels (Matthew and Luke)?" While such a question can be answered without Bible software, it would take a long, long time. Accordance answered it in seconds. There are 190 different forms in NA28, which appear a total of 227 times. I've attached the search setup, for those of you who may be interested.

    MT-LXX search

    The stats I've got from a search don't make sense. Below is a screen shot. The BHS shows 760 occurrences of nepes. The LXX shows 954 occurrences of psyce. The MT-LXX merge search shows 1352 hits (by paragraph). This is impossible. There can't be more exact matches than there are occurrences of an individual word. I though that maybe the hits count was doubled making exact matches (1352/2) which would sound about right. That seems to be what has happened in Hosea as shown by two occurrences in MT-LXX tab but four in the analytics table. But it can't be the case for every hit as Isaiah has 61 hits in analytics which obviously hasn't been doubled. Am I misunderstanding something or is this a bug? On a separate note. I know that it is possible to tie a text to the results of the MT-LXX search so I can see the whole verse. But it still shows verses in between the result hits that I'm not interested in. Is it possible to only view verses that occur in the search results of MT-LXX as a separate text tab?
