    When you type g26 into the combined input box, it suggests Gal 6.18
    Should G and H with numbers be treated differently? The search is handled correctly searching for the Greek word but the TVG is looking for Gal 6:18 in books and commentaries.


    BTW, I just discovered you can paste a snippet of an image into the forum without saving it to a file first. That's very handy.

    Here's what's happening:

    The search box will attempt to match anything you type into it as a verse reference and then scores the "likelihood" that you mean to enter a verse reference. When you type g26, it tries to match Galatians chapter 26. That's not valid, so it instead picks the maximum verse in Galatians, 6:18. But since your text was not a good verse reference, it defaults to treating it as a Bible search, which as you point out works properly as a greek number search. It looks a little strange to see Galatians 6:18 suggested there but it is actually working as designed, and again defaults to a valid Bible search.

    The Topic and Verse Guide doesn't perform a Bible search so it goes with the best match it can get from a verse reference.
