He's running version Editor (build 23-Nov-2003).

However, while talking with him, it seems he was able to use the Find and
Filter functions earlier. We had to download the file (from site
01&loc=en_US&cs=utf-8&lang=en ) and perform manual updates due to some
problems we had at initial installation.  The manual updates seemed to have
broken his Find and Filter for selected text.

The programmer said he skipped interim fixes 001 and 002 because they said
"Change Now" instead of "Install Now".  That was per instruction in the docs
with the downloaded file.

Should I have him go back and reinstall all interim fixes and Will
they reinstall if the button says "Change Now"?  Can we screw things up even
worse by doing the "Change Now" process?

What version of the editor does the WDSCi installed on the particular 
machine have?  Enter version on the LPEX command line to check.

Is the user selecting text by dragging the mouse?  I think LPEX 1.4.3 
had an occasional problem with rectangle selections, fixed in iFix's update.

Ensure the live-find dialog (brought up with Ctrl+F) doesn't have the 
"Restrict search to columns" and "Restrict search to selection" boxes 

Also, as a general remark, for the filter functions one should not 
select extra spaces around the desired text.
