Trying to use the "search and replace" function....

It appears to "find"  terms....

but whenever I click the "replace" function, I have been getting this error.  It has never worked.

After I dismiss the above error, it appears to be "replacing"....

But it shows this message endlessly and never replaces anything.

Does "search and replace" work for anyone else?

Can you try a test on the sample project? If it crashes too, then you know that there's something either wrong with the install or environment that's at fault. If it doesn't, then there's something in your project that's tripping it up.

When I try to load a sample project, I get an error...

On the "find and replace" problem, I changed some of the settings...

and it now seems to have properly replaced everything.

 

However, oddly, I perform a new "find" and it still finds matches for the old/replaced term.  But, none of those terms exist in my document!  (At least I was able to get the find and replace to work.)

Is your sample project located in your Documents > My RH Projects folder or the C:\Program Files\ location? If the latter, you'll need to copy it to a more accessible location to play with it.
