When trying to Find in Robohelp 2019 it goes straight to an xpj (code) page and finds my search. Then asks if I want to start from the begining. When  I click OK it either keeps staying on the xpj page or starts searching the TOC. Under 'Look in' I have Current Project chosen.

 

The searching of the TOC just started this morning. Find is very unpredictable and I need to use it but can't trust it at this point.

 

Any ideas?

Peter's suggestion should fix it.

 

I'd also recommend unticking the "Use: " checkbox unless you are specifically doing a regular expression or wildcard search. Mostly it probably won't make a difference, but some characters like parentheses or . or / might give you unexpected results when the setting is on.

Good catch Amber. That will definitely screw that search.
