I am wanting to highlight the word "for" (actually, the lemma gar) in the book of Romans.  My inline search for that lemma shows 143 occurrences of that lemma in the NASB.  (Bible Word Study only reveals 142--I'm not sure why there is a difference, but anyway...)

Is there a way to apply a highlight to all of those words without having to individually go select all 143/142 occurrences and highlight them?  Even with a hotkey, that would take a while.

I would use a Visual Filter (if you don't know how to set one up please let us know)

The search includes a hit on Romans 3:2 whereas the BWS does not. The γὰρ is not translated in the text which is why the BWS does not show it in the Translation Ring

Thank you!

Yes I would love to know how.  Looks fairly easy if you can tell me where to click.

Also, how did you find the discrepancy so fast?  I tried making 2 passage lists and comparing, but I couldn't figure out how to make a passage list out of my inline search.

You can create a Passage List from the Inline Search panel as shown below (click the Share button and you get the options)

I actually scanned down the list of results in the BWS panel and a Search panel and found the discrepancy that way!
