    A handful of users have reported a problem with search result panels, where doing a search does not open the results as expected.

    UPDATE: This issue was fixed in SwordSearcher 8.1. You can get the program file update downloaded from here if you need it.

    Thanks to some patient users who sent me their configuration files, I have been able to track down the problem and there is an easy fix.

    The problem is due to corrupt layout engine data preventing the search results from showing.

    The easy fix is simply to exit with the "Exit Without Saving Layout" option on the File menu. This will clear the layout engine data on exit, and everything will work properly the next time.

    That's it. This is a rare bug but a bug nonetheless and will be fixed in the next release.

    Thanks Johnny, it's a very, very rare bug. I mainly posted this here for the benefit of someone who encounters it and might do a forum search before sending a support email.
