Unable to use Find, Replace features in TextEdit
Posted on 2009-04-11
I just recently downloaded, and installed TextEdit 3.0 for Windows on my Windows XP SP2 system. I like it very much, however, for some ridiculous reason, I am unable to use either the Find, or the Find/Replace feature. When I try to select either feature from the "Search" menu, or press CTRL + F, or CTRL + H, the text field to search for your word appears, but disabled. I have no idea why the field is disabled. I have tried closing the application down, restarting it, opening files with different extensions (.txt, .xml, .java, etc.) but to no avail. Does anyone know why this is? Do I need to check on/off an option? I don't want to uninstall and then re-install the application only to find out the problem still persists.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
