'Find/Change' is closing chapters after running through them. Why?

This behaviour is completely new to me... I have a book and its twenty chapters open in Framemaker.

Do a Find (ctrl+f) for a string. Each time I get a hit, I press <shift-f7> to jump into the text and make corrections.

Then I click 'find' again.

If no more instances of the string are found in the current document, Frame is now *closing* the document (prompting to save changes if any were made) when it goes to the next doc in the book.

Have I somehow flipped an option that controls this behaviour, or is this actually broken?

Thanks!

My recollection is that during search of a book, if the file needs to be opened, Fm has always closed before moving to then next file. If the file is open prior to the search, it remains open.

Does Fm close the files if they're all open prior to your Find/Change?

That's pretty well what I remember too … very tidy-minded ;-} but OP says all the files are already open.
