Description Tracey 2023-10-13 15:57:03 UTC
If I use find/replace with search criteria, but forget to clear the criteria when done, the criteria is applied to find even though find only shows find-all and match-case as search options.

Please disconnect the find/replace criteria from the find function.

Thanks, Tracey

For OP, please provide build and os details from the Help -> About dialog.

Also, seems related to bug 62601 (and dupes) where this was resolved, could you please provide specific steps to reproduce your issue of bleed-over to the Find-bar from the Find-and-Replace dialog.

depending on the STR OP provides may be dupe of bug 115665
Comment 3 Tracey 2023-10-14 15:57:07 UTC
I use search/replace specifying a text with a particular font (or any restrictive characteristics).

When I exit search/replace then try to find some text, if it fails to find something I know is there, I have to go back into search/replace and click on "no format".

After that, the find function works fine.

Thanks, Tracey
