The NASB uses an asterisk (*) in the text like a footnote to identify every place where a Greek verb in the Historical Present tense has been translated with an English verb in the past tense for smoother reading.  I am trying to produce a list of these occurrences by using Logos 6 Search.  However, the asterisk is the wildcard character and I have not yet been able to figure out how to use it without returning a list of every character in the range (e.g. the normal use of this character in Logos 6 Search). If anyone knows a way around this, I appreciate the help.

You're right that you can't search for *

However, the * is linked to a popup containing text describing its meaning. You can search for some of that text, and Logos will highlight every matching footnote.

Because the footnote isn't considered part of the Bible text (it was added by the translators), you have to perform a "Basic" search to get results. This will limit your ability to export the results to a Passage List, although you could get a quick overview of the verses involved by performing an Inline Search rather than using the Search Panel:
