No, darlin', unfortunately. Same problem. Some search results are displayed starting above the top of my text window.
I'm searching for Index fields. A previous writer didn't know how to get Word to use colons as colons in an index entry, and substituted commas instead. Since I am a big sophisticated ol Word user (hee!), I am searching for each field, and substituting \: for each comma that I want to replace.
Maybe it's because the titles are in large type (and so are the index entries), but the index entries that wrap around more than one line start, as I say, off the page. I have to scroll up to see 'em, whether I use the Search box or Ctrl-page down.
