Highlighting Search Text in Preview Panel

I cannot figure out if I'm using 8.x incorrectly or if this is just a function that was removed from 6.x.x. I've got my laptop (newest version of X1) sitting next to my desktop (last version of 6.x.x), and when I search for certain text in emails, the search term is highlighted in the preview window of 6.x.x, but not in 8.x. Text in the columns to the left of the preview panel is highlighted in 8.x (and 6.x), but not within the preview panel itself of 8.x.

Is there some option I am supposed to enable to get this functionality back in the newer version?

Well, I've figured out the why, but not a solution around it. Our models have dashes in them, and whenever "-" is part of the search term, highlighting in X1 8.x goes off the rails. I've tried enclosing my search term in quotes, but that does not help either. As long as I search without the dash included, things highlight as I expect them to, but if I try to exclude a search term using the "-" notation or use one of our model numbers with the dash, things go haywire.

Tried using a space instead of dash? " abcdef "

Your naming system seems to include a character that X1 interprets as an operator.

I've often wondered about this issue as well. I'm forced to search for xx-xx frequently and get odd results. I wouldn't have this problem except that X1 won't search midstring!
