As Multi-File Find & Replace inexplicably disappeared from the Toolbox, I am now using Edit > Find & Replace to find and replace text in multiple files. Unfortunately, it crashes RH8 every time I use it. I can edit a few topics that come up in the Find & Replace results, then after a half-dozen or so, the message pops up that the topics were edited outside the Editor (even though they weren't) and do I want to reload them? Then it just goes into an endless loop, whether I click Yes or No, and ends up crashing RH.
Has anyone else experienced this? I did a search to see if a bug had been reported on it and didn't find any, so will also report this as a bug.
I am also currently installing updates, so that might help.
I believe the Edit > Find and Replace actually launches what you are saying inexplicably disappeared from the Toolbox.
As for the crashing, that does sound a bit on the unusual side. Then again, I never used the tool all that much. So maybe I haven't used it enough to see an actual crash.
One thing I do note is that I always ensure no topics are open in the editor if I'm using Find and Replace. Maybe that's the difference. I just hate dealing with the "this file was modified outside of RoboHelp" messages that invariably ensue.
