I'm working on a sample file to re-create this problem.  So far, I've not
been able to get DBT to misbehave as you describe.  Would it be possible to
send a sample document directly to me at peter@xxxxxxxxxx?

Subject: [duxhelp] Find and replace shows incorrect line in translated line

Performing a find and replace in a braille file.

Note in the two examples attached that:

-if the letters/words found in the find and replace are at the end of a
braille line, the translated line actually shows the next line down instead
of the line the hilighting is currently on.

Not a catastrophe, but certainly qualifies as something which could lead you
to make incorrect decisions if you are making replacements based on the

For example, from the image in2.jpg we are looking for all occurrances of
the contracted 'in' where it represents the contraction of the word inches
and will replace with the letter sign 'i' 'n'... as it is in the translated

What I see, if I'm not paying close enough attention is a contracted 'in'
hilighted, and the line showing a measurement in inches.  So I should
replace... if it were showing correctly.  Replacing this 'in' would be
incorrect as it is actually the word 'in' and should be contracted.
