I'm running Logos 6 on a Mac. When I right-click on a verb (in this case, קִיַּם in Esther 9:32) in the text I can figure out how to do two of three things I need to do.

1) I can bring up a search page with all occurrences of that verb

2) I can bring up a search page of only the occurrences of that exact form (piel perfect 3ms).

But what I can't figure out how to do is to get a search page with all the occurrences of all the piel forms of the verb (including perfect, imperfect, etc. for all persons/numbers).

How do I do that?

Thanks

Once you get the search panel open with the search for the exact form, you can click just after the query text (or enter a space at the end of the query string and then delete the space). This will force the query picking tool to be displayed. Click on Perfect, Third Person, and Singular to deselect those values. Then hit enter to run the search.

Very helpful, thanks.

Ran into an immediate problem, though. I accidentally selected more than one entry under "stem" and I can't get it to deselect the one I don't want (tried right click, shift click, control click, etc.)

Also, how can I set it up so that I don't have to re-enter my email and password every time I want to respond on this thread? It's making me do it twice each time.

try a simple click - it is a toggle

This seemed to work at first but no longer does. I click after the query text and enter and delete a space but nothing happens. It's getting very frustrating.

Can you verify that with a simple single click the selection/deselection is actually not working (see whether it changes the query in the search box)? Sometimes (at least on a Mac) the deselection results in no highlight and sometimes it results in a slightly lighter highlight than the selected terms.

You could also delete everything back to the lemma then type "@" to bring up the morph selection grid. This will give you a "blank slate" in terms of morph selection.

Thanks for trying, Reuben.

I can verify that the space bar does nothing. Also tried the @ symbol and it does nothing.
