Is it possible that this search is also changing my heading fonts?  I've been trying to determine why fonts on some pages are being changed from Calibri to Calibri Light.

I am new both to OneNote and to Onetastic. The function of Find, or Search, in OneNote sucks. I manage to find out Onetastic offers macro add-ins. It helps to an extent. To be honest, there are still catches, if I do not get it all wrong. Most times, I do not use Highlight and Replace, but simply Find and Location. I give this Search and Select a try. It fails. If sometimes succeeding, it just tells me how many finds but refuses to inform me of whereabouts the finds. If someone finds me wrong or there are better solutions, do please let me know. Thanks a lot.
