I asked this in Bug 98539 - DIALOG: Improvements to the Find & Replace dialog, but since no response, I open a new bug.

For Writer, I'd like to see "Paragraph Styles" and "Comments" more visible in Find & Replace dialog, i.e. in compact UI, as suggested in attachment 124657 [details]. 
Reason for "Paragraph Styles": I open expanded UI for Paragraph Styles rather often.
Reason for "Comments": that's somewhat basic option, one could expect to find text in comments since they are visible. 
Please comment on this with you preferences and opinion.

Calc option "Cell Styles" (related to "Paragraph Styles" in Writer) is now in expanded part, but if that's the price because of space, it's better to have "Cell Styles" up in compact and "Formatted display" down in expanded.
I don't know what (new from 5.1) "Formatted display" is used for. 
Also no tooltips. I guess it should be obvious, but it's not, sorry.

Sounds like an UX topic.

fine for me.
With two elements less in the 'option' section, one could think of better dividing of remaining elements, so that the section can be visible permanent, separated with a line named 'options'.

The whole dialog is a mess and moving controls around will not improve the usability. Expert options on a prominent position are not helpful in that regard. Plus, with many checkboxes in one line we may run into trouble with localization.

So my take is WONTFIX.

No further opinion, so keeping the status quo with expert options.
