Subject Re: The Search Term Text Box

Not sure I understand correctly, so please forgive me if the 
following isn't going to help -

I have a feeling there might be a misunderstanding as to which 
"search box" you would like to use.

If you would like to search OpenOffice's help files, then you'd 
need to go to the Help menu (top right) and select "OpenOffice 
Help" (second item from top). The "Search" box that comes up at 
the top when opening the Help menu is a "Spotlight search" 
window, and belongs to the Mac operating system - really no use 
for OO, but that's Apple's responsibility... :-)

If instead you wish to search your OpenOffice document, then 
you'd go to the "Edit" menu and click on Find & Replace...

I have been assuming you are using OO on a Macintosh computer.
