Description Butch 2016-09-29 06:46:48 UTC
This is a basic usability and convenience issue which is relevant to every average user and therefore should be fixed:

Searching in a Writer document by the most common way, Ctrl+F, fails in the following case:

Some time ago the user was in the Find&Replace dialog to do a find&replace with an additional attribute for the search string, e.g. character format bold.

After closing the Find&Replace dialog this format setting is active in the Ctrl+F search field too (without beeing visible in any way to the user!), and the searching fails...

This shouldn't be so! The basic searching method Ctrl+F should NOT be attribute sensitive!!!
