No, AES is right in some cases for the Documentation Center pages. Some Documentation Center pages are peculiar in some ways in terms of using Mathematica's search capabilities. For example. Go to the main Documentation Center page. Once there, click on the page to be sure that you are in it. Now bring up the find and replace dialog and, for example, type in "Overview" (without the quotes) in the Find field and click on the Next button. Nothing happens (and a warning beep is generated) even though the word Overview does appear on the page. This sort of thing does not happen for all pages by any means, but there are some peculiarities to be found. Perhaps it has something to do with the style sheets that is used, or perhaps it is a gremlin... --David On Jul 24, 4:54 am, "Robert <"@frank-exchange-of-views.oucs.ox.ac.uk, wrote: > AES wrote: > > There's no text search or "Find" capability _within_ an onscreen > > documentation page? > > Just use the normal Find command Ctrl+F > > Robert
