I currently have version 8.2.4
The full reader search opens in a new window. I don't like this.
There was a version where one could see search results in the same window as the document was displayed in.
What version was that, please, and do you know where I can download it from?
The search results were always in a seperate window.
I never paid enough attention to the details of exactly how it worked previously, so I can't be positive whether you're right or wrong. If they did always open in a 2nd window, they did so in such a way as to seem like the same window:
What I do know for a fact is there was a version that did not operate that way. (And futzing around to resize the windows so they don't overlap is not an acceptable work-around.)
I am likely not using the official terminology to name things.
I've put up with it this way for a long time, but it's a stupid design and I want the old way back.
