Display is unintelligible

I start advanced find and replace and soon the display is totally unviewable. I cannot tell if the program is stuck or the status. How do I get the display to work properly. I have used every version since 3.0 and this problem is the same in every version (see image below). http://www.javelinmarketi...

Find and replace corrupts MS word 2007 docs

After find and replace, my MS Word 2007 documents are all corrupt.
(they were all saved as .doc files)
I have backups but is there a way to prevent this in the future?

system idle process 99 -cant tell if AFR is running

I cant tell if AFR is running. When I look at the windows task manager, the processes tab, is shows in the CPU column that 99% of the CPU is devoted to a process called "system idle".
Has AFR stopped?

expression builder results unexpected

I placed the following in the expression builder


source text: 336-297-4111
regular expression: \(*\d{336}[\)\-\.]*\d{297}[\-\.]*\d{4111}
replace by text:
result text: 336-297-4111

how come this did not work? I left the replace text blank yet the result text was the same as the sopurce text?

Re: phone numbers various formats

I need to eliminate SPECIFIC phone numbers, not ALL phone numbers.

what do I type if I ONLY want to eliminate phone number 925-935-9251 and leave all other phone numbers unchanged?

If I use this as my search string \(*\d{3}[\)\-\. ]*\d{3}[\-\.]*\d{4}, wont this replace ALL phone numbers?

Re: phone numbers various formats

I am sorry, that makes no sense to me. That would search for ANY 10 digit number. What EXACTLY do I type as the search string if I want to search for the phone number 9259359251 (which may exist in the files at 925-935-9251 or 925.935.9251 or (925) 935-9251 or (925)935-9251) do I type: 9259359251\(*...
