Matlab 2020a - Search index not found
7 views (last 30 days)
I am installing Matlab 2020a on a number of computers and have found that occasionally the Help search functionality is not working when trying to use the locally installed documentation. On some computers after installation I get the following error when trying to search:-
Search index not found.
I am very new to Matlab so if anyone has an idea of why this is happening, I would be most grateful.
Edit: I am using Windows 10.

See https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/builddocsearchdb.html for re-creating the search database. Maybe this helps you to find the corresponding files in the help folders(see "recent versions" or "file history"). Maybe one of your functions overwrites them or you have shadowed a built-in function, such that the search fails?
Hope it helps !
