View Full Version : Search Limits Change Does not Remain in Effect

08-21-2007, 06:44 PM
When I change my search limits to use a custom range, I often have to make the change several times before it "sticks." But now I have an even worse problem: I cannot change back to the option for "Do not apply any limits to the search."
Actually, I can make the change with the option button, but I hit OK and reopen the dialog box, and the search limits are selected again. The changes I make do not remain in effect.
Anyone else experience this?

I'm using BW 7.0.018w.7 on Windows XP Home Edition with SP2

I've never had the problem you're experiencing, but I almost never use the limits dialog.

I would encourage you to make use of the command line short cuts:
l = remove all limits
l mat = limit to matthew
l mat 5 = limit to matthew 5
l mat 5 13 limits to matthew 5:13

A lot more is available on this in the help. Search for shortcuts in help.

I have no problem on my machine, using 18x.14. I think the latest exec is 18y now. I suggest to download it. That should fix your problem. If not, let us know again.

I did download the latest "y" version, but my problem persisted. I was able to alter the search parameters using the command line search limiting options.
Thanks for the suggestion.
