Find bug? (ReturnReturn)

Post by Brooke6 » 2007-10-19 15:18:24

When I search for two returns in a row (choosing the special character "Return" twice in the Find field then hitting the button "Next"), I get the endless beachball and have to force quit.

This happens when I do it in a new file or an existing file, and it doesn't matter whether it is a saved or unsaved file. Can anyone reproduce it? Any suggestions?

Mac OS 10.4.10
NWP 1.01

Thanks,
Brooke

Hi Brooke,

This is indeed a bug in PowerFind that was introduced in NWP 1.0.1. The problem can be triggered whenever two of the same PowerFind bubbles (eg: "Return") are placed directly next to one another.

We will have this issue fixed in the next update we release, but in the meantime here are some workarounds:

1. Instead of using the gear menu to insert the second bubble, copy-paste the first one.
2. Instead of using two of the same bubble, use the menu Repeat # > N Times to specify that you want to find two of the preceding bubble.

I hope that helps.

Or else, switch to PowerFind Pro and search for "\n\n"

Martin and Groucho,
Thanks for the clarification on the full extent of the bug, and for the options on workarounds.

This bug will be fixed in the upcoming NWP version 1.0.2.
