search not working
« on: April 09, 2015, 06:52:35 pm »
SlickEdit 2012 (v17.0.3.0 32-bit)
OS:Linux

Find suddenly stops working.  Find dialog set as follows:
Search for: nth_order_spaces
Look in: <Current Buffer>
Search options: Match whole word, List all occurrences, Bookmark all matches
Search Results window: <Auto increment>

Find was working then for some reason it stopped.  HELP!!!

If restarting, rebooting etc didn't help then try this
1. export all your configuration options via tools -> options
2. close slick, backup your configuration folder
3. delete the vslick.stu file in your configuration folder
4. restart slick
If that doesn't work, try a brand new empty config folder vs.exe +new -sc some-empty-folder, then import your saved configuration options.

FIXED
I had to try a brand new empty config folder vs.exe +new -sc some-empty-folder, then import your saved configuration options to get search working.  But it is working.

Thanks for your help.
