Edit mode switching with "Find All Elements"

Post by kim » Fri Aug 30, 2019 8:39 pm


When, in Oxygen 21.0, I click use the "Find All Elements" menu to search for an element, and then click on a result, it changes from Author Mode to Text Mode (even if the result is in the same file and opened in Author Mode). This is a different behavior than we saw in Oxygen 20.0 (and 19.1). Is there a setting so that it doesn't switch the views? I couldn't find one...

I see the same mode switching when I click a result from Find/Replace in Files dialog with a scope of "All opened files" and "Current file directory" (I didn't try all the scopes.) But that seems to be true in Oxygen 20.0.

Hi Kim,

You are right, this is a bug in the first release of Oxygen 21.1. Based on some previous feedback about it, we released a minor bug fix release for version 21.1 which fixes it:


so if you just re-download Oxygen 21.1 from our web site, when uninstall and re-install Oxygen the problem should go away.
