browse on a variable shows a reference to a non-related variable


When a browse is done on a variable, Revolve shows a reference to

a variable that is unrelated to the item requested.  It fails to show a valid reference.


This is caused by line feed characters embedded in the source code (if the source code is looked at using source view, a dialog box comes up indicating there are nulls).  Revolve is actually finding the correct instance of the variable, but the line display is off due to the hex characters.  To resolve this issue:

1) Go to UTILITIES/OPTIONS User tab.  

2) Under user setting, select Allow Mixed Line Terminator.   

The correct variables will now be found by clicking he MATCH button again - no make is required.
