I believe the default behavior, when searching a book, is to restart from
the front of the current chapter when a search is interrupted. I assume it's
part of the program's Find algorithm, but it's never bothered me enough to
find out.

* If you use ixGen to open all the markers in the regular text stream, you
can do a simple search-and-replace for text without going down the detour
into the Markers dialog  box.
