Search?

Hi
I wonder if anyone can help me please?

I clicked on something in Calibre, by accident, my mouse moved.

Now I can't search like I used to be able to.

I used to be able to see all my books and then when I start typing the authors name in the search box all the other books would go and just the author I was searching for was left.

Am I making sense? I have been trying to get it back since about 8pm and have just given up.

Thank you xxx

so what happens now? i'll guess that you accidentally hit the 'enable/disable search highlighting' button (the second button to the right of the 'go!' button. just hit it again. if that was the problem then it'll be set back the way it was (if my guess was correct).
