Re: 2016 and advanced find

Hi all:

I have experienced the same issue with the advance search and Outlook 2016. I reported it couple of times in the past to Freedom Scientific and was hoping as new Jaws updates came out it will be fixed. This is not an issue with Office 2013.
Another frustrating issue with Outlook 2016, which I also reported to FS, is that if you tried to add or edit your email signature, jaws does not read the text in the signature box. Also accessing the list of attachments sometimes it works and others it doesn't. Hopefully FS will work on fixing some of these issues soon.

Hi, Richard.
I use control-shift-f to bring up the advanced find.
I'm still playing with f3 and will try control-e.
So here's an example.
I'd press control shift-f and the initial choice is a edit combo wher you can type in a string you might find in the subject.
So I would type in sticky keys
Press enter and after a few secondsthe program would stop searching.
At that point I would press f6 to get quickly to the results.
I would then select all the messages either delete or perhaps move them somewhere.
All the best, Brian

I'm not having issues with the find.
I just tried f3, which I had not used before and it found messages rather quickly.
I previously used control+e.

It doesn't identify itself as advanced find. Is there more steps to what you are doing?

Hello there;
I also find the advance search doesn't work, I use the f3 key to search type in criteria,

Shift+tab a few times to the search results.

Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.

Since updating to outlook 2016, the advanced find dialog hangs on after I press the find now button. It hangs on stop and stays there.

It used to simply find what I was looking for, (say something in the subject
line) and I could find the list of messages by pressing the f6 key.

Has anyone else had this issue?
