Trying to figure out where this one line of text is coming from. I am using the search feature, the binoculars icon. It has radio buttons for search lists and description. Description seems always greyed out. Is it ever selectable?

What I've done is to Export the whole program into a module, then use a text editor to search for specific text. That way you can find it in any title, description, etc.

Nope, I never got around to implementing it.

sounds fine but.... won't i have to produce a line in alr for each static object (drawer/cupboard/safe/table/chairs) and the various objects that are in/on them? As explained I tried using %object% but it didn't seem to work. This has only recently come to light when i deleted a lot of tasks dealing with opening things. To get what i want... would it be simpler to return to tasks?

By-the-by; i can't even begin to understand where to begin in adrift 5. I know questions have been asked re importing adrift 4 into 5, has this now been resolved? or would i have to rewrite all 167 rooms and 300 tasks again?

ADRIFT 4 should import into ADRIFT 5 just fine. There may be a small amount of tweaking required, so if you find anything then let me know. I'm not developing v4 any longer.
