    Tapio -- can you confirm that you are:
    1) Using the CGI platform option (and if so which OS in particular, e.g. CGI/Win32)
    2) Have updated the search index with V8 making sure to update all .zdat files and also the search.cgi as generated by Zoom V8.

    If you have confirmed the above, would it be possible to zip up your test case with the small files and your indexer configuration and email this to us. We can then try to reproduce the situation here.

      I just emailed you some sample files with the Zoom v8b2 configuration file. Hope you are able to reproduce the situation.
      I use PHP platform, which I can fairly easily modify to meet my needs. My PC is Win10, 64bit.

            Presumably this is a bit late for a feature request, but could we have extensible dialog boxes whose text boxes extend to fit?

            Am testing the v8 beta 3. I noticed that dialog boxes still have fixed dimensions, which for me at least, makes it a pain to maintain, add, delete or otherwise tweak my numerous long file system or http start paths; long, multiple strings for scan extensions, skip options, exclusion filters, category lists, synonyms, and recommended links, etc.

            Because I cannot at least visually scan such long strings in text boxes and list-boxes for inconsistencies --and in this the scroll function is of no help-- I basically do this as well as most of configuration directly in Zoom's configuration files, with a text editor, to save time, reduce data entry errors, and maintain coherency across multiple configurations for a half dozen search engines.

            Other than that so far so good, and indexing is indeed very much faster, both spider and offline modes. Haven't compared search results yet, though.

            Running Windows 10 Entreprise 64 bits, 20 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD, Intel Core i5 @ 2.40GHz.

              Well noted, and certainly something that's lacking. We'll see what changes in this area we can squeeze in along the way (or even after beta).

                The three bars to tab between the views are small, can they be bigger?

                  Complement & a 'bug'

                  Complement

                  I can attest to the speed. Our index time with v6 was 38 mins and now it is less than 20 minutes.

                  Possible bug
                  I am having an issue with the categories

                  It does not seem to be picking up the meta tags i.e.
                  <meta name="ZOOMCATEGORY" content="Job">
                  Note we are jumping from v6 to v8

                    On the results page, I am getting 2 "All" Options (see screenshots)
