Search function not working

Hello, I can’t figure out how to post a new topic so I"m putting my query here.

My project search function has stopped working!! I saved and rebuilt indexes
and also check the magnifying glass checkboxes, which are on Search in All, All Words, Search included and Search Excluded documents…

I cannot put my cursor in the search box. It is not activated. Also when I click on Edit…Find…Project Search,
NOTHING happens…

So…have I overloaded my project? What is the limit of data? I don’t know what else to do . Please help.
The find within document works but not the Project Search.

Thank you!!

To create a new thread, view the section you wish to post in, like the tech support area, and then click the large red “New Topic” button. I have split your post out to a new thread for you.

The symptoms you describe would be unrelated to anything having to do with content in the project itself. There are no limits like you speak of, and an out of date search index wouldn’t stop the user interface from allowing you to click into a field.

First thing I would check is to create a new test project (the interactive tutorial from the Help menu is a good way of doing so, as that will come with a bunch of text to search for) and try searching there as well. If that doesn’t work either, you should reinstall the software.

On the other hand, if it is just the one project that is showing this problem, then I would run through this checklist. Both are catch-all type troubleshooting steps, but given the nature of the problem it is good to start with that kind of stuff, so that we don’t end up spending time tracking down an impossible to reproduce UI gremlin or similar.
