    I find dat the "find" menu often fails to find words that are really there—whether or not I tick "whole word" or not. It does find them in the stronger Cmd-R option, but not in Cmd-F. Thus words that Cmd-R identifies, are not found when I open the relevant document and search for it in the notes. And the documents were saved, in case you wondered.

    Since footnotes are linked by make up as you go along markers, it's not always easy to locate them if you have many of them. I believe this is a bug, but does anyone else have this problem?

    On a separate note, I also find that the font colours of some notes change between saves—i.e., some notes are suddenly appearing all white. they're still there, but blanked out.

    About the search: It occurs to me that there's a bug (somewhat of, at least) with the initial find command and/or the current position of the insertion mark and/or the find panel's "whole document"/"whole text" setting. I just can't put my finger on it, because it seems as if the panel does find everything, but just won't tell under some circumstances.

    E.g., it should look through the whole text when that option is selected, but it seems as if the initial command only looks from insertion point to end-of-text. Not always, though, so it's hard to catch.

    Dunno what to do here, or if it's even in our hands to change that behavior...

    When I have the marker {{lnT}} in the text, and {{lnT- }} in the notes, for example, it does not find the one in the notes. When I select a point before this marker in the notes, it does find it, but now it does no longer find the one in the main editor. Could the fact that the notes may be rtf be a factor here—i.e., that there is some encoding difference between the two?

    To achieve what you want to do - you'd have to select "whole document" form the focus selection. This might solve the problem...

    No, I did that, and it doesn't solve it unfortunately.

    Could it be that the search problem is related to fonts? Even in Fullscreen mode, I frequently do not find words in the notes which I can readily see there. But I do have, different fonts and colours in the notes (more or less a result of years of work on this project), so might that cause the problem?

    It *definitely* is not a problem of checking or unchecking "whole words" or "whole document". Having lots of notes, it is sometimes frustrating to scroll through them and trying to find the one I need, so I hope the root of this problem can be discovered.

    We have identified this as a bug. Currently, there is no quick workaround. But be sure we'll fix it for the next version :)

    Is this bug supposed to be squashed?
    I'm pretty sure Ulysses received an update since Nov 2009, but perhaps the problem is more difficult than the S-men thought? Or...?

    For me, Ulysses' Find function (CMD-F) routinely fails to find what's in the Notes pane.
    Searching with the Filter Field does turn up documents with the searched term in the Notes pane, but after that it can be hard to find the term in the document.
    (I guess my other request to have the search term sent from the Filter Field to the Find dialogue box becomes moot as long as Find doesn't work well ;-)

    yep, the fixes for these issues will be in the 2.1 release, coming this summer :)
