The search and replace mode is broken?



  • Hello people, there is a small problem in the current version, it is broken or the search works somehow differently.
    More precisely, I do not know in which version the search broke - but in the last one it is definitely broken.

    Description of the problem:
    There is a text, I make a selection in it, and I look for the selected piece.
    before it worked for spaces with newlines,
    tabs and other invisible separators. It doesn’t work now.

    maybe someone knows how to fix it? if this is a new HIV for example?



  • @Al-___ said in The search and replace mode is broken?:

    but in the last one it is definitely broken.

    Maybe something else is broken.

    There is a text, I make a selection in it, and I look for the selected piece.

    That is a bit vague; can you be more specific?

    Assume you did this:

    • select some text with one or more spaces in it
    • go to Find window
    • put a space character in the Find what box
    • tick In selection checkbox
    • press the Find All in Current Document button
    • observe no hits in Find result window

    Is that right? If not, can you try that sequence?

    Hint: If I try that sequence with the Match whole word only checkbox ticked, I get no hits; otherwise I do get hits, so…see if that checkbox is ticked for you or not.
