I just updated to 3.01.c.  Now I can save the sector with all of the systems in it.  Thank you.

The most recent update beta improved search speed somewhat

The Astro3 files themselves are sqlite databases.  So they are searchable using SQL from just about any language.  Just open the astrodb file as if it was any ol' sqlite database file.  You can also use any sqlite based database manager to open and view the files.
