This is the search as returned on the left; about 2 minutes later, I open the NRSV which immediately populates with the search results. There are no other panels opened. As you can see, the NRSV has highlights not in the search ... the search showed incomplete results.

Good spot - you can get the same in Mark 3:18. It looks as though there is a limit of eight highlighted hits in each search result

Thanks for the report. I've created a case.

That was always stated (by FL) to be a limit, and it makes no practical difference as long as all results are highlighted in the resource.

Unfortunately, when I am dealing with many names - think Ezra-Nehemiah - I often don't go back to the resource because the excerpt in the search tells me what I need to know. Or I use the excerpt in the Search to determine if I need to look at the resource. If I always went to the resource, it wouldn't matter, but I don't so it does.

I didn't know that. It sounds to me like a limit that probably made sense a few versions back, but I look forward to seeing it disappear soon.

If you ran this as a Basic Search on NRSV you would see all the results highlighted for Act 1:13, but nothing for the rest of the chapter (except there are 27 in total).  ESV would just list 32x for the chapter and highlight the two results for Acts 1:1. Either way, the article excerpt occupies 4 lines.

But I agree that it is possible to highlight all the results for v.13 in the Bible Search, and that it should happen when they are part of the excerpt (4 lines).

If you look at Acts 7:8 you might wonder why Abraham is not highlighted, so you would have to look at the resource. In other cases, you may not necessarily know that the end of a verse is part of the excerpt, and have to check that it is so!
