Post Search bypassing verses
I did a search with "I not It not If not Isaac" and 1Chr 1:28 was skipped which contains "Isaac" and "Ishmael". Apparently any verse that contains a word that is being eliminated in a search, the whole verse is eliminated even though it contains the word you are searching for.

So "I not It not If not Isaac" is only searching for verses that contain "I" and don't contain "It", "If", "Isaac", so the search result is ok.

Don't follow this, If I am searching for a verse that contains Ishmael and not Isaac, why would it not find the verse containing Ishmael? If it is eliminating the verse because I do not want Isaac, then it is also eliminating Ishmael by proxy.

I don't see Ishmael in your search term

I wanted to eliminate Isaac and not Ishmael, read my original post.

1Chr 1:28 does not contain "I" which is required by your search terms

Sorry I assumed you are in the KJV

Oops, I guess in this case I should have stated NKJV - my apologies.

Check your original post. What are you searching for?
There is no "I" in 1Chr 1:28 in NKJV.

Uncheck "Whole words only".
Do as search for "I not Isaac" and see if you get 1Chr 1:28

EDIT: If I am searching for "I", I should get Ishmael - right?

But that verse contains Isaac, and the search says in part "not Isaac", so I don't get a hit.

Right, so how do you eliminate Isaac from a search and still get Ishmael? Can't be done so the search is being done for verses rather than words making it not possible to search for words when "not" is used.

If you want verses with just Isaac in them simple use Isaac not Ishmael

Post Re: Search bypassing verses
Not what I want, I want all names that begin with "I" and as the searching progresses, I eliminate each name that is found with "not"; here is my last search in Chronicles:

I not It not If not Isaac not Ishmael not Ishbak not Israel not Israelite not Iram not Ishi not Ibhar not Igal not Ishma not Ishbah not Izhar not Iddo not Issachar not Ishhod not Imnah not Ishvah not Ishvi not Imna not Imrah not Ispah not Ishmerai not Ishpan not Iphdeiah not Imri not Ibneiah not Immer not Ilai not Isshiah not Izrahite

There is no "I", "J" or "K" in Hebrew, so every name that begins with those letters is mistranslated and this is how I am coordinating the result:

"Isaac" "Yitschaq" (H3327).
"Ishmael" "Yishmael" (H3458).

Once I have done the Strong's, I don't want to find that name again and have to search through hundreds of verses to find a new one to work with. There are some names that cannot be eliminated from the search because they are the beginning of other names such as "Ir".

On the same note, some names only appear once in the Bible and if, say Isaac is in the same verse after elimination, then the other name will be missed.

I don't see how you can do this with a boolean search on verses.
What is your goal?
Are you changing the names to the transliterated Hebrew? in the .ont file
