When you try to search a document after previously searching another document that has a different set of tags, the program displays in the Find dialog box the previous pattern and its tags, even if those tags are not defined for the current document. If you change the pattern but not the tag, the program will find all occurrences of the pattern if the tag used previously happens to be the default paragraph tag for the current document.
