Post TW Message-Window Demons everywhere
Forgive me for not using the correct term for these message windows. After looking at my screenshot, you will understand.
For two years I have been mildly bothered by the fact that TheWord gives me lots of message windows to read and close. When installing new modules I usually get ots of them with lots of text to read, so I just click "yes" on all of them, and hope for the best.

Nevertheless, one in particular seems completely unnecessary.

When doing a search in bookview, or a search-and-replace operation, TW does the job, and then asks me whether to repeat the search at the beginning of the page. I usually refuse the offer by clicking "no." In fact, I would rather not even be asked that question, because I have intentionally chosen to search from a certain point in the document anyway, and intentionally selected to search downward only--not to do a wrap-around search.

So, at this point I am already bothered to be shown a message window. I refuse the offer to continue the search, by clicking "no," and I expect to be rid of these windows, to continue working. Nevertheless, the TW message-window demon is not satisfied to leave me alone just yet. TW goes on to do yet another quick search (apparently) from the top of the page,, without my permission, and, finding no further instances of the word being searched, tells me that there is not further evidence of that word. In fact, it is not content to give me the useless information, but rather insists on receiving my confirmation click, before getting out of my way.

So, as I see it, this is one window too many, and possibly two, making it a bit frustrating to continue working each time.

I suggest that you first cast out the demon in the name of Jesus, and second, that you eliminate this last message window altogether.
