I'm just starting to learn how this program works and have not had a problem, until now. I am not having much success finding objects using the 'Search for an object' icon (binoculars). For example, the star Alp Eri is clearly visible in the Sky chart but entering that name in the search box results in a "No object Alp Eri found".

Given that this type of name search request works in all other similar programs I use I assume I must be doing something wrong.

Type "Alpha Eri" and it will work.
