Find can't find text in a specific font

Recommended Posts

I know  that it was previously possible to use Text > Find... and then to specify a Format option via the cog icon, such as Font Family: Arial. Pressing Find would then find all the text in that font.

That seems to be broken in .206. I'm not sure when it last worked.

Both the cog wheel and the format selection are available. If necessary, reset the program (Ctrl-Start).

I hadn't been involved with the search function for a long time, because the search for formatting didn't work properly at that time. I had written this in a thread at the time. Just now I realize that it still doesn't work. If I leave the fields blank and just search for a formatting, nothing happens at all. See also here:

Yes, those are available. They no longer work for me, in .206, to find text with a specific font. They used to work.

Are you saying they work for you, and that you can select a font in that dialog and find all the text that uses it?

No, @walt.farrell, it doesn't work for me either.

In my first article I assumed that you don't have the controls.  But everything seems to be there.

In my second post I explained that the search for formatting never worked properly for me. After my report at that time I did not pursue it then further.
Possibly it worked in the meantime. In version 206 the click on the button "Find" or pressing the enter key is completely ineffective (with this kind of search).
