Search On Keywords

In previous versions of act I was able to set my searh options to only look in the fields, or activities when searching.  I would uncheck the other options (Notes, Histories, Activities ect....) and they would stay unchecked even when I restarted act. 


Now in the 2011 version these keep defaulting to all checked when I start a new session of act.  It is tedious to have to uncheck them all before searching, and I always forget to do it on the first search of the day and have to wait 3 or 4 minutes for the results to come back from all the searched sections in the database.....urrrrgh.  Anyway, I can't find an option to set this to my preference.


Thanks in advance,

Yup - it is annoying - I hate that too.


No preferences, just doesn't work like it did.  Note that you cannot change the size of the dialog correctly either...
