Using FM11 with Windows7.
We have a problem with the following:
If I have completed a Find/Change All in Document A (then close the Find window), then I open Document B and press Control-F to perform a new search, once I start typing the previous word search/change all is applied to Document B when it's not the intention.
The problem is when Control-F is pressed the last function is highlighted (in this case "Change All") - rather than the word field, so nothing is actually being typed in this field - rather it performs the last function. The basic work-around is just to make sure we click or tab to the desired field before typing... OR make sure to delete the previous find/change text fields before closing the window. When doing things quickly though we may forget - so it gets annoying when we have to fix this or revert to last saved document.
Users with XP don't experience this. Each time control-F is pressed, the Find term field is the highlight so the new term is typed in as expected.
Any tips would be welcome.
There's been a change in behaviour with FM11's Find/Change (as you've noticed). The dialog now retains focus after a search has been performed and is modal. However, the focus of the field for ctrl-F should place it in the Text area, regardless of platform, not execute the last operation. This is buggy behaviour and I just confirmed this on my platform (regardless of whether your in Doc A or B).

Thank you Arnis !
That's right, once we all tried to reproduce the problem - we realized we could be in the same document when this 'bug' happened.
We are aware of it now, so we'll take the necessary actions to prevent it.
