    I edit many .xml files per week. I constantly having to check the “Wrap” box and the “Match Case” box in the Options panel. I also need to uncheck the “Replace with entity” box.

    Are there default settings for these options. I imagine they should appear in theĀ  Author/xmetal60.ini file, but there are none evident.

    In previous releases the following settings would be remembered after shutting down and restarting:

    find_case_sensitive = true
    find_patterns = true
    find_whole_words = true
    find_wrap = true

    The setting for finding backwards was not remembered in this case (by design).

    So, this functionality was broken at some point (the only version I have immediate access to that is older than 6.0 is a 3.1 installation and the feature is working there) and remains broken in version 8. I'll log this as a defect if it isn't in our bug tracker already.
