Maybe it's my lack of Hebrew understanding, but it seems that power lookup doesn't handle Hebrew properly.

In this example, Power Lookup only returned two hits when there were clearly at least 5, if not more, as evidenced by the dictionaries in the menu:

 

It's even worse when I click on "form", and use Power Lookup on its lemma.  Nothing is found at all (yet there are still 5 hits found by the menu):

 

It doesn't happen for all Hebrew words, though.  I can't figure it out.

I'm running the beta, but I posted it in the regular forum since I'm thinking it's not a beta issue.

I had a look at this in my 4.0d SR install and I see something similar, so its not beta related:

 

I don't have an explanation for the difference off hand.  The first two resources on my right click men are ignored by power lookup, the third and fourth appear as top two entries in power lookup while third resource appearing in power lookup is not in my top five prioritized resources.  It is the German version of the Old Testament Word book.

Could it be that the other 3 references do not have that lemma?  I am even more of a beginner but guessing that might be the case.

No they do.  I clicked on them.  Besides, the dictionaries that show in the menu are put there only if they have an entry in the first place.

BWS also shows the hits for those words that the menu does:

Here's another.  I don't recall ever having this issue with Greek lemma Power Lookups.

I've submitted your report. Thanks.

Update:  This will be fixed in 4.2 (Beta 1).  (When?--not sure.)  :o)
