Count of results seems incorrect for a search

using Accordance 9.6.4 on ML


I did a search


(eimi, pareimi)@[VERB -(infinitive,indicative)] <WITHIN 1 Words> [FIELD begin]


with the range set for sentence


I get a single result showing John 20:19


but the status bar reports 2 results. (see screenshot)


Interestingly the hit count seems incorrect in the iOS app as well...I have reported it there as well

And the answer is the same. Both sides of the are counted as hits including the field begin. Itr's not really a bug.

Thanks Helen, Still it seems a little strange. I was asked today when you would ever want a count of the "FIELD" hits. I couldn't think of any of the top of my head. It seems to be only useful teamed with another criterion and so perhaps these hits should be excluded. It's a little counterintuitive to have 4 hits listed when there are only two highlighted words.


Anyway, thanks for the explanation.
