When I try to search in my code, and Press Seach -> Find
a dialog venster pops up. When I enter my search string in 'Text to find'
I get a errormessage: Tried to search marked block but it is invalid

What is wrong and how can I restore my sourcecode and/or Delphi to
be able to search though my code again??

Thanks

I bet you have checked the "selected text" option in the scope area of the find dialog. If you have that, and don't have any selected text, you will get the error.
Click the "Global" option and try again.

Yep, you are right. Thanks. Confusing behaviour of Delphi though.
