Re: Search function not working

Hi folks- My problem with the search function echoes some some of the other posts I've read, but is really more elemental (I think--or at any rate I am a less advanced user!)-- Putting a word in the search bar will show me to the files that word is found in, but if I select one file it won't bring m...

Re: Whole MS wiped

THank you, Mr. X- I do appreciate knowing that.

Whole MS wiped

The same thing just happened to me. I was in the middle of a project, was using the trial version while I waited for an email back from the admins as to why registering the upgrade was not working. Just now did accomplish the upgrade, and went back to find that my week's worth of work is totally wip...
