How can I turn off search pop up that says "OpenOffice Writer has searched to the end of the document. Do you want to continue at the beginning?"

Cheryl Whitesel
Hi,

When I search through a document, please tell me how to turn off the maddening pop up, "OpenOffice Writer has searched to the end of the document.   Do you want to continue at the beginning?"  I ALWAYS want to go back and search from the beginning.  This feature slows searching tremendously.

Also,  when I search, putting an apostrophe into the search makes the software unable to find the word in question.  For example, if I want to search for "don't" I need to search for "don" without the 't.  If I search for "don't" the sofware finds nothing.  Every single time. Can this be fixed?

Thanks.

If your Writer has been set to turn apostrophes into curly quotes, it won't find a straight apostrophe - you will need to copy/Paste a curly apostrophe into the find box, rather than enter the straight apostrophe from the keyboard.

I don't know any way to turn off the end of file message.
