    Default Find & Replace

    After uploading to 18 (from 16) I no longer have Find/Replace. Have studied as much as I can of the manual.
    Can someone please tell me where it is moved to?
    Thank you

    Should still be in the Edit menu.

    Or Ctrl + Alt + F

    Info Re: Find & Replace

    Most get confused as Xara uses Ctrl+F to move a shape to the Front.

    Ctrl+F does work if the Text tool is active.
    The Menu allows Alt-E-F; each key can be pressed in turn without holding down.
    Gary's mentioned Ctrl+Alt+F.

    Thank you for replying. Can't understand it.
    Yes it should still be in the Edit menu, as it was when I was using 16.
    I can't immediately send you a similar photo for the Edit menu, but in words it is this (Text tool on):
    Undo create text line
    Redo (greyed)
    Cut page 'sitemap'
    Copy page 'sitemap'
    Paste
    Delete page 'sitemap'
    Select All
    Reset current attributes
    Duplicate (greyed)
    Clone (greyed)
    Pages

    The old Find/Replace came between those same two lines as on your thumbnail.
    I get no effect either when I test with putting the Shape tool on, as you have.
    Ctrl + F, Alt E F and Ctrl+Alt+F all don't produce the dialog. Although I don't understand the whole table Acorn has provided, I do understand that the top line says that the way of getting the Dialog is Ctrl+Alt+F, but not when I do it.
    I use it so much, for years, and I'm sure other people must do.

    It looks as if my thumbnail did come through, for what it's worth.

    CK21, definitely different to Gary's screen capture and all my versions.

    All I can suggest is running the application in admin mode the once. That might reset things.
    Right-click your shortcut and pick Run as administrator.

    Thank you very much for this. At least I know I'm not imagining it. I shall follow this up as soon as I can.

    The only other thing I can think of is maybe you have Web Designer but not Web Designer Premium?
