Big problem with the Find/Change window

Post by Sergio62 » 09 Jul 2018, 04:46

Hello,


If you make multiple substitutions below, the Find/Change window remembers the previous substitution.

First replacement: I look for the italic font and change with italic-bold-underlined, OK

Second replacement: I look for the bold font and change with underlined-italic, incorrect substitution in italic-bold-underlined.

If I close and open the Find/Change window, the second substitution is done correctly.


Here is the link with the movie:

Hi, Sirish,

Are there any news on this problem? It does not seem to me that it was resolved in the update of XPress 14.0.1.

Thank you,
Sergio

Hi Sirish,

the problem has been solved only partially, if I insert the color attribute the problem remains.

Here is the link with the movie:

Hi Sergio62,

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, the defect indeed seems to be occurring if some of the attributes are searched and replaced during the first find/ change operation, and without the Find/ Change palette being closed, later some of the attributes are changed during the next find/ change operation.
