Using Tools>Find Files to search for text inside files can take a long time - as one would expect. If I choose to manually terminate such a search by clicking the "Stop" button a problem arises.
Clicking "Stop" within about 10 seconds functions normally but after a longer period I cannot stop the search because DOpus ignores the request.
Actions and symptoms...
- Any number of clicks on the "Stop" button show that a click was registered but the search continues in an apparent endless, uninterruptible loop. The only way to then stop the search is to close DOpus - either by normal means or via Windows Task Manager.
- I have ticked "Show percent complete in progress indicator titles" under Preferences but the progress indicator at the top of the screen shows a looping green slider - not a progress percentage - so I am unable to determine at what point the search has become uninterruptible.
- If I click the close (x) button in the Utility Panel the entire Utility Panel screen does not accept any input at all (it appears to have crashed) but I can still make selections elsewhere on the screen.
- There is nothing I have observed that indicates the moment at which the search cannot be interrupted.
While the solution is easily carried out it is a nuisance to have to close the software and start again.
I would greatly appreciate assistance please.
