8.1 FIND does not find text in CDATA

Unread post by Tony Starbuck » Sat Jun 27, 2020 9:17 pm

The toggle type dropdown has a caption node where the content is defined in CDATA. The "Find" operation does not find text in those CDATA elements.
Am I missing some setting to do this? Thanks!!

Hi Tony,

This definitely works if Find Where: is set to "Topic text and header". The only case where it wouldn't work in the past (HM7 and earlier) is if you are searching for text that includes both the toggle header link and the text that comes directly after it -- i.e. crossing the border between the link and the normal text. However, in Help+Manual 8 it will also find that.
