This may be intended function with morph searches, though it seems to cause problems (it is for me), so I'd like to know how to work with it or around it.

I'm trying to search BHW for all verbs with energic suffixes.

When I go to a form that has one of these (תְּשׁוּפֶ֥נּוּ in Gen 3:15) and build my search based on it, I was able to put together this syntax for the search:


This results in 561 instances, which includes the ones in the Aramaic of Daniel and Ezra.

The problem I have is that if try to adjust this search or simply copy it and paste it in morph search, it immediately changes into this:

<WestMorph ~ v??????+S???EeA?I??V?>

This results in 537 instances, namely only those in Biblical Hebrew (not including the Aramaic of Daniel and Ezra).

My question is, how do I do the first search within the second search's syntax (i.e. <WestMorph ...>)? There are times when I want the first search results (i.e. Hebrew AND Aramaic) vs. the second ones and the only way I can figure out how to do that is to find a form in the text of BHW (i.e. in Gen 3:15: תְּשׁוּפֶ֥נּוּ) and then right-click on it, do a morph search on the word, edit the morph search putting wild cards in where I need them, and then hitting enter.

Part of the reason this is a problem for me is that with Logos 8 on a Mac the GUI for morph searches runs off the screen and there's no way to access the options to the far right (where energic suffixes are). I've already reported this, so I look forward to a fix coming soon. :) 

Thanks in advance for your help!
