This, I just don't understand.

I can understand deciding a former function/tool is deemed too obscure to include on the default, fresh-install toolbars, so that function/tool is made available only in the Customize Toolbar list (so that a user still has the option to add it to *their* tailored toolbars). But to drop a function or tool entirely--ESPECIALLY without polling the users first--suggests the developer has so little to occupy his time or attention that he's pruning and slashing the browser just to have something to do ... or perhaps has developed a fixation on cutting code. If Search Page/Site is considered waste programming now, what's next? Print Preview?

Very little in Avant 2013 makes any sense. If Anderson's goal is to destroy Avant, he's doing an excellent job. :cry:

Both the "print preview" and "search within site" and other buttons mentioned by users had ben recorded.

But that doesn't mean that any action will ever be taken on all of the recorded issues.

I don't think there's anything you can do. I'm still waiting to see something from Anderson that indicates what he plans to do. So far, it looks like he doesn't want to restore a lot of things that he removed. It's very frustrating to have no idea what direction Avant is headed in. If we can't get back the FULL IMPLEMENTATION of the classic skins, then Avant isn't much good to us anymore.
