Doc-To-Help does use the Find | Replace functions, but only when you run the
Build Online Help routines to create the RTF. Yes, this would leave Find |
Replace with the last settings used. But Doc-To-Help (and to the best of my
knowledge, RoboHelp do not replace the normal functionality) they just use

But I think in Mark's case, he is finding that this is happening without
running Doc-To-Help's Build Online Help.

Right, Mark?
