    The “Search” function has diappeared from the menu since I registered for Full Standar License. Why is that and how do I get it back?

      The search feature is still there, however, it is not visible until Syncdocs has completed its first sync after startup. If you wait for the sync to complete, or during subsequent syncs it is available.
