Many times when i am searching in my plain text for a phrase (i mean more than one word) the finder is not able to locate it. It doesn't happen always. Some times it works properly and then all of a sudden it stops working.
Does it depend on what options are selected in the search window? It does look like with the "whole word" option selected, it doesn't find any search terms that contain 2 or more words. Is that what you had found?
Yes as it seems it happens when the whole word option is selected. However, yesterday, when i noticed it for the first time, after one unsuccessflul search, it wouldn't find the term no matter if i changed the options. I tried many option combinations but the result was the same. However, after that, i wrote some text in another tab and then went back to the old tab and the search was working properly.
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll open up a separate bug report for the whole word find issue as it sounds like it might be separate from what you're describing. Let me know if you find any pattern to the unsuccessful searches you've noticed, and I'll keep looking into it as well.
