Post Search does not find "Lord's Day" in some translations
It is right there in front of my eyes in Rev. 1:10, but Search does not find it in NASB, NIV2, HCSB, CEB, NKJV.

But it *does* find it in some other translations.

There can be different punctuation that the publishers have used.
Some use
’ RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK

Some use
' APOSTROPHE

Some use capital D others a small d

It is something WE have to be aware of and account for.

So in a Boolean search we would have
Code:
(Lord's or Lord’s) (Day or day)


Or switch to regular expression search (much more difficult to use and learn but...)

Code:
Lord\p{P}s [dD]ay

So since this can't be done from my keyboard, I just have to expect that Search won't always work.

Edit -- Oh, ok, whole different kind of Search in the Details tab.

That worked, but still, what I said -- I'll just have to expect Search to be unreliable. I'm not going to bother trying to learn that gibberish.

If you want to input characters that are not on a keyboard and you have a number pad on the right you can use ALT codes to insert them
