Normal find dialog box [super-newbie!]

Post by lindas2013 » 2013-11-18 07:54:32

I am super-new to Nisus, and I am learning while I am working with it. I have the manual open and am reading about Using Normal Find. The User Guide shows a graphic of the Find dialog box that is different than what I show for the Find dialog box. The User Guide shows an upper space/box area - my dialog box does not show this.

Am I missing something? Is the box no longer in this version? If it's suppose to be there, how do I make it show up??

User Guide:

My dialog box:
my find box.png
my find box.png (45.33 KiB) Viewed 1980 times
I'm referring to the "white" space with text in it, above where you put what you're looking for.
I hope that I have explained it well enough! Sorry if it's so elementary. Thanks for any help.

Welcome to Nisus Writer, and the forums! We're here to help...

Do you mean the space that shows the formatted text being searched, starting with "this is the book that…"? If so, that's just the normal document window peeking out from underneath the find dialog. If I've misunderstood, please let me know.

Ah ha! I knew it was silly! LOL! :lol:

Yes, that's right, it's the document behind the box! I just couldn't get it.

Thanks!
