Interesting. That must be a difference either between the TE and TX
(likely), or maybe DB5 vs. DB6 (unlikely), or you have full-screen
writing off (most likely). In my case when the find/filter text screen
is first deployed the OK button ( and the others) is not highlighted.
Doing the page-down four times serially highlights down to the OK
button. Doing "&tap" on the *un*-highlighted OK, the button flashes
briefly but does not activate - instead the punctuation shift happens.
This is often the result with "&tap" in OS5, especially with fullscreen
writing on. But with the OK button highlighted, it responds to "&tap"
correctly. That was the "breakthrough", finding out from Paul that
"page down" mimics the 5-way down button. See if the version of the
script that omits the page-downs works if first you make sure you have
full-screen writing turned on.
