    Default Search Limits Change Does not Remain in Effect

    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

    Default Use command line shortcut where possible


    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.

    Default Thanks

    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.
