A little annoyance in navigation
If you have a note with more than two pages of text, then on doing a search and clicking inside the note on highlighted text causes the editor to scroll to the position from the top of the page.

To see what I mean, try this:
Create a note with the line: "This is a line of text" and paste it about 100 times.
At the bottom type in "zzzzz"
Now do a search for "zzzzz", click on the note just created.
1. At this point it will show the top of the note instead of the first match in the note.
Use the mouse wheel to scroll to the bottom and click on the "zzzzz"
2. Again it scrolls to the top.
Now scroll to the bottom and type a character just after the "zzzzz".
It enters edit mode and the highlighting disappears.
3. But the line being edited again scrolls to the top of the screen instead of staying in place.
4. Lastly, pressing shift-ctrl-0 should just leave the position of the text in the details pane as it is instead of srolling to the top.

I have tried this with different version of the RTF control but get the same behaviour.

Could 1-4 be fixed ? Just gets annoying when repeatedly doing a search and modifying notes which have more than a page of text and especially so when the search term appears multiple time in the note.

Uncheck Tools | Options | Search | Highlight matches. Rather than clicking on the matching search items, use Search Go | Next Match (F3) to cycle through each match.

I always like to see the highlights so I don't have to search what UR has already found.
The F3 behaviour is intuitive and was hoping to get the mouse clicks to work in the same way. Anyway, while enhancing UR if you do touch this portion of the code please recall this post :)

You can click the Next Match button on the View toolbar to go to the next match with the mouse.
