Hi all,

Regarding the "inadvertent global search and replace" issue in FrameMaker 9's 
Find/Change dialog recently discussed on this mailing list, I have put together 
an AutoHotKey script that forces the Find field to be selected when you press 
Control-F, so that you end up typing where you expected to be typing.

If you have been bitten by the new Find behavior and would like to test this 
tool, please drop me an e-mail and I'll send you a copy.  (I will eventually 
post it for download on my Web site, but would like a few more people try it 
out first.)

PS -- AutoHotKey is a free scripting tool that lets you drive the UIs of 
applications, among many other things.  Scripts can be compiled into EXEs, 
which is what I have done.  See http://www.autohotkey.com/ for details.
