Find/Replace in Files & UTF-8
Searching in folders/subfolders (Edit->Find/Replace in Files / ctrl-shift-f) works fine with UTF-8 just as with ANSI characters and the match is highlighted on double click in the results pane. However, if there are UTF-8 characters left of the match, then the highlighted area is shifted to the right by as many characters as there are doublebyte characters left of it. IOW the highlighted area is no longer identical with the search match, which is quite a nuisance in the long run.
Replace in Files works correctly as far as the actual replace operation is concerned, only opening the documents from the results pane has the same shifting of highlighted area as above.
Plain Find Text search (Edit->Find / ctrl-f) on all open documents does not have this anomality.
In settings -> editor -> encoding auto-detect/meta tag/assume UTF-8 all checked (no BOM). Having had ANSI before was the same issue.
TopStyle version is 220.127.116.11 (final) on XP SP4 fully patched.
Notepad++'s Find in Files as a workaround works as regards the highlighting, however is rather buggy in opening the documents by double clicking in the results pane: sometimes the file opens, sometimes not, probably depending on the length of the line the match is in. Replace in Files not even gives a results list for checking. Besides, it is not just a clumsy and unreliable workaround, but Notepad++ is no longer free to use either.
TIA for any suggestions, even if it is just confirming the bug (which of course would be a suggestion, too, to get on the move again for a replacement for Homesite).
Attached a screenshot. Searchstring was "W. Hogarth" (w/o quotes), however, both the bold type in the results pane and the highlighting in the editor only start two characters later on the space before "Hogarth" and extends two chars beyond. Note that there are two umlauts in the line before the match, in Verkäuferin und Göttingen (line wrapping is on, but is irrelevant). Adding/removing high characters would shift the highlighted area accordingly (in a new search of course). The same search with Find... works fine, both with Find & Find All.
