Description jalbert 2006-08-28 20:32:27 UTC
After using 'find' feature from 'Edit' menu, selecting the navigate-to-next-page
button (on scroll bar to right of text) causes program to search for the next
'find' item instead of the next page as it should.

It is necessary to go to the Navigator icon on the toolbar and reset the active
process to 'page' before the navigate-to-next-page button will work properly.

This may be a minor problem, but it is a time-and-energy waster to have to go
back and forth between the two functions.  Besides, whoever conflated the 'next
page' button to the search function?

You guys have done a great job with this whole thing.

MRU->MMP: We should consider if it is really desired to change the current
function of the Navigation tool when the Find&Replace dialog has been used. If
someone uses the dialog, I don't think that he immediately wants to access the
navigation buttons for search.

This issue is still relevant in v3 (RC2 on mac). It duplicates behaviour in Word
04/08 - in order to get back to PageUp/PageDown functionality in buttons below
vertical scrollbar after using Search/Replace, you have to click on the
Navigator and choose Page.
If this behaviour is not going to be changed, it should at least be mentioned in
Help, as it's not obvious or intuitive how to get back to page navigation (even
Word users are not familiar with this).
