I was wondering if anyone else is able to get any results when doing a morphological search in the Lexham Hebrew Bible searching for the Weqatal form? It also seems that there has been a change (which I am grateful for!) in the names for the different verbal aspects/tenses in the LHB Hebrew morphology as compared to when Logos 5 first came out. I believe the "Qatal" was called "perfect" originally and at first there was no category for the weqatal. Now, when I look for obvious weqatal forms in the LHB and mouse over them (Like the verbs in 1 Sam 10:4) the are tagged as a waw conjunction with qatal tense/aspect rather than as a weqatal.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

Just confirming that the color scheme for MTS has both the Qatal and the WeQatal as red for tracking Perfect and Perfect Consecutive.

Confirmed. Are you able to get any results for weqatal in LHB when you just search for that morphology?

Jim, what version of Logos are you on? 5.1a, or the beta/RC for 5.1b?

There will be an update to LHB released early next week that I'm guessing will address this issue you're experiencing.

I am running

Logos Bible Software 5.1a SR-2 (5.1.1.0623)

When I search for Qatal the verbs in 1 Sam 10:4 get highlighted

When I search for Qatal/WeQatal they are highlighted

 

When I search for WeQatal - I get no love.
