Hi Christian,

You did not say if you were using a Beta, or an autobuild, but this does
indeed appear to be a "Show-stopper".

My tests here were with autobuild dated today June 21st - and Windows XP
Home edition. 

(For Peter's benefit, there is a known problem, not yet fixed, where if
you start mid-document and select ALL when replacing text, it will not
prompt you to search the remainder of the document.) 

In your document, if I do as described in your message, and start
mid-document, but select "Yes" each time, it will work fine, and
eventually ask me if I want to search the rest of the document.  When
complete, I am at the beginning of the document - not where I started
the search and replace.

(Incidentally the additional warning message is actually telling you
that because you have not entered anything in the "Replace with:" field,
and so its value is null, it cannot find a Style with such a name.  I'd
perhaps respectfully suggest a more screen reader friendly message when
a null value Style name occurs)

If I select ALL as per your message, I immediately get an error pop up -
"Internal error in replacing style".  My cursor changes to an egg timer,
which means DBT is busy.  In my case the plane keeps flying until it
runs out of fuel. (battery)

XP's Task Manager tells me that 2 instances of DBTW.EXE are "Not
responding".  Once terminated, the following two errors appear in the
Application Event Log.

"Hanging application dbtw.exe, version, hang module dbtw.exe,
version, hang address 0x00064531".  (Event 1002)

"Fault bucket 115371753". (Event 1001)

Hopefully I've been able to fill in a couple of gaps that will bring the
plane safely back to the runway.  (Smile)

George Bell.
