"Find All in All Open Documents" simply closes Find window without results
When I use the Find dialogue window, all of the buttons and actions perform their functions. However, when I click the “Find All in All Open Documents” button, it simply closes the window without any results provided. Assuming this is a bug?

Not a bug. It should close the Dialog and open the Search Results window, or focus on it , if it was already open.
It may be that it was undocked and off-screen (hidden by some other window on a different monitor), or it may be shrunk really tiny when docked, so you don’t notice the results.
addenda: see this discussion for a lot of detail on how that window might have been hidden, and how you can go about finding it.
@PeterJones I’m only using one monitor and if I ctrl+tab to view windows, it doesn’t show up… I’ll check out the discussion thread you mentioned. Thanks.
@PeterJones derived my answer from the discussion post… played around with the values in GUI section of the config and got it working. Thanks again for the assistance!
